As I type, the last votes are being cast in the eastern states, and the exit poll results are pouring in.
Here’s one chart from cnn.com —
However, with the primary races so close this election, do exit polls really count for anything? After the debacle of the 2000 Preseidential election, the media is far less inclined to call an election early based on exit polls. Nevertheless, at this point in the night, people are still checking exit polls to see who has won in the east. I just wonder how much clout should be put in the exit polls, especially when fewer than 5% points set the winner apart from his, or her, opponents.
Edit: As Professor Hagen wrote, the CNN shot is real poll information. However, I think it is interesting to see the percentage reporting from Georgia. Because only 2% of districts reported, how much should we really trust these percentages? Furthermore, on Fox 29, winners were called with only 1% of districts reporting. Is the media slacking on its responsibility to its viewers and readers?
