Screwy Exit Polls

Michael Barone comments on possible Democratic shenanigans with the exit polls.

Erick Erickson has some more thoughts about the polling data over on Redstate. He goes a little bit further than Barone: “Somebody had the numbers sooner than they should have been released. Somebody leaked those numbers and tried to suppress the Bush vote. I’m willing to go the next step and say those numbers were orchestrated intentionally to have the effect they had while people were still out voting.”

Update: Here’s more on the exit polling and it’s effect on Republicans.

Update II: Stephen Bainbridge relates an anecdote from a Republican election lawyer supporting the case that the exit polls were being gamed by Kerry supporters. He’s asking for supporting data. So how about it? Did anybody else see something fishy going on?
