Ignore Exit Polls: Conservative States Dropped From Data 4-to-1

November 6, 2012

The AP, for instance, supposedly in order to cut costs, eliminated 19 states from its exit polling efforts. You’d think perhaps, “OK. Makes sense. We know exactly how New York, California, and Texas will vote anyway.” The problem is that you’re thinking. The AP is scheming. Two different dogs, and one of them don’t hunt.

Of the 19 states AP dropped, 15 were carried by the Republican in 2008, while only 4 were carried by the Democrat presidential nominee. Texas is indeed dropped. But New York and California remain. Funny how that works, skewing the numbers on exit polling even more heavily towards Democrats (they already do more exit polling in urban centers than elsewhere.)

This isn’t new news, but it’s worth repeating. Read the entire analysis from Newsbusters.

And vote. And ignore all other noise. Vote.

    I notice that defense stocks and some medical device stocks (both hurt by a second Obama term) are up a lot this morning. Some coal stocks are up modestly.
