Today's Exit Polls Differ Drastically from Actual Results! (Fox News reports)
FoxNews | 11/04/2008 | RightFighter

Posted on 11/04/2008 6:05:36 PM PST by RightFighter

Someone on Fox News (Jim Engle, I think) was just on saying that they are seeing a large amount of "WPE" (Within Precinct Error) in the exit polling, meaning that the actual results reported by the precincts are much lower for Obama than the results that the exit pollsters gathered. In Pennsylvania, I think he said that this number was 10.4%, meaning that Obama was exit polling 10.4% better than the actual results being reported.

In Florida, they reported that it was a difference of 3.4 or 3.9%. Also significant in NC, VA, and other places.

I'm just praying that this is significant and that they will have to retract some of their early calls and turn them red.

Another thread says it was Michael Barone. I think that’s right - I’m in the other room from the TV, so I can’t see it, I just hear it.

I turned off the TV when Fox just mistakenly called Ohio for Obama.

I almost turned it off as well.,,, I guess I’ll try to hang in a little longer. I can’t believe Ohio will go to Obama

Look how close is the Popular Vote. How can Fox News show the PV as so close, but have the Liberal Messiah winning by so much in the EV?

Yes, Barone said MOE was under 10%. That’s why they called it.

Exit polls are bull$hit and should be illegal.

Networks “calling” elections prior to ALL the votes being counted is bull$hit and should be illegal.

Both are simply unsubtle attempts to discourage voting in later-closing states. Period.

Bradley Effect. Tell the exit pollsters one thing, but vote the opposite in the privacy of the polling booth.

Foxnews exit polls are just as good as the rest...worthless. I can’t handle Brit and Chris Wallace beaming over defeats of GOP senators and Congrescritters. True colors are out there tonight just like after the 3rd debate.

There is no way in hell I would ever talk to an exit poller. These people are snakes. They are like the guy who sits outside the grocery store trying to get people to sign petitions. Whenever I see one of them, I just tell them I'm Canadian, eh.

If they did an exit poll, they'd probably conclude that half the shoppers at the store are Canadians.
