Early presidential exit polls.

I had a couple of emails asking about them.

The simple answer is you won’t see them. This from Pollster.com explains things far better than I can.

I know that people are wanting to know as soon as possible about how the election is going for their candidate but problems in the past have meant that things have to be kept quiet until 5.00pm ET.

So anything before that – ignore it.

From Pollster.com:

Looking for leaked exit poll results from the Obama-McCain presidential race? Sorry to break the news, but until at least 5:00 p.m. today you are out of luck.

Following the 2004 election, when partial and misleading results leaked out at mid day, the network consortium that conducts the exit polls decided to restrict access to a small number of analysts in a “quarantine room” for most of the day. During the primaries this year, and presumably tonight as well, they release their results and vote estimates to producers and reporters at the television networks and other subscriber organizations about about 5:00 p.m. eastern time.

I don’t have any privy to any information at all, so if you want to know – you will have to wait just like me.

I am as excited and terrified at the election on-going at the moment. Just as many of the readers here are.

So, while the polls are open, get out to vote!

Stay in line and you will be able to cast your vote. It may take a long time or just five minutes. But do stick with it!
