Exit Polls

The exit polling, both on the Democratic and Republican races, this primary season has been awful. There is plenty of it buzzing around tonight which is contradictory and which seems to bear no resemblance to demographic data. In a word: useless. So in about a half hour we will simply have to watch the returns.

Far more reliable seems to be the t-shirts worn by the Obama team which plead to ”Stop the drama, Vote Obama.” Not exactly a sign of confidence nor a warm and fuzzy message to those voters in upcoming states, but perhaps it is an indication that Obama’s camp recognizes that the Democratic in-fighting is helping only John McCain.
