Here is a graphic which is probably the best evidence that I've seen so far that...1.The Electoral College(in contrast to my recent beliefs) does actually work...and 2.The exit polls could have been right and wrong at the same time, IMO. Point one should be self-explanatory. Bush's overall county win coverage far outnumbered the Kerry wins, even though Kerry got HUGE numbers in large population centers. The exit polls are primarily taken in said large population centers and it should be obvious why they showed Kerry leading, and were so wrong in predicting the outcome.
