Grain of Salt Time

More early exits currently available, thanks in large part to Jim Geraghty.  His source has Obama up 52-47.  Historically, though, exit polling has erroneously put Obama out front many times in the past.

So take these numbers with a grain of salt; with much data left to be processed and still forty five minutes of voting left, these numbers are very much subject to change.  In fact, in Geraghty’s post, he notes that often the exit polls typically spots Obama seven to eight points that he doesn’t have.

In the worst case scenario, that would put Obama down to 44 percent, and allow Hillary up to 56%.  This would ve far lower than what she actually needs in the state, however, it is enough for the spin machines to go into high gear.

ugh

Thus, if the numbers follow this path, that means we’re looking at at least two more weeks of this debacle.  Happy, happy, joy, joy.

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!

    But Drudge has Obama down in the early exit polls so does that mean he’s actually doing better?

    🙂

  2. No.

    that means he’s doing worse.

    subtract 7-8 points from Drudge’s numbers, and you have debacle.
