From The Top

A senior GOP strategist dismisses the exit polls out of hand. “I’m old-fashioned. We’re going to have wait till votes are counted.” Today’s polls have Dems with a mere 1% party i.d. advantage – in 2000 the exit polls gave Dems a 4% advantage. He recalls that Elizabeth Dole was down 6 pts. in exit polling and won her race by 9 pts. The same polls with screwy head to head numbers are showing Bush with 40% of the Hispanic vote – up 5 over 2000.
