It was very interesting to wake up at 4:50 am to Tim Russert on IMUS in the morning talking about exit polls:
The organization that's in charge of the exit polls used to provide the first wave at noon or one o'clock.
Now, a representative can come from each of the subscribers and come in to a dark room with no windows, no telephone, no tv, and they are "quarantined."
They are put in this room. And no one from the networks can see anything till 5pm.
I stuck in a video tape and reset my alarm.
When I awoke again at 7:15, the reports of voting machine problems were in full swing:
MSNBC On Bogus phone calls giving false information to voters.
