But this is all based on exit polls! It is waaaaaaay too early, people!

I think the chances are good that O will take the election - but dear me - calling these states "won" based on exit polls . . . that is nuts.

yeah,I just saw that. No precincts have even reported. Everyone would be smart to just watch Fox. The other networks gave kerry the election based on exit polls. It's stunning they are still doing that.

Yeah, Fox News just explained why they weren't calling PA. SOmething about WPE (?) (something with exit polls) that so far in some states have been overstated for Obama by 11%.

Don't quote me on details but that was the general idea.

Fox refusing to call PA, as no counties have been reported yet. Where have we heard this before? I'm not saying Obama won;t win PA, but until those votes are counted, exit polls mean nothing to me.
