Exit polls and statistics
Pew and Zogby et al. would have you believe that something as contentious and personal as politics can be controlled by proper application of systemic polling. A sentiment I do not share. We have a few days left. We're in the home stretch but the most interesting part will be the post mortem on polls. People have short memories. I remember polling data from the last two elections used as "proof" that Karl Rove/Diebold/GOP/Bilderbergers stole the election.
