Geraghty at National Review (who's pretty reliably gotten real exit poll info, says it's 52-47 Obama! Now when Clinton wins by 6, we'll all be disappointed.

Damn you publius, that's like saying Dick Vitale saying "Tyler Hansborough has made 14 free throws in a row" just before he shoots another one - guarantees he'll miss. Obviously it'll be Clinton by 21 points now, and it's ALL YOUR FAULT!

Nyeah.

I refuse to get my hopes up.

Time to turn of the intertubes and make some dinner anyway.

There's no point in believing any of this.

We'll have real results starting in two hours.

Oy.

Yeah, but nearly every other primary (and certainly most of the hotly watched ones) had some form of early voting, mail-in ballots, etc. that I think interfered with exit polling (along with some general unreliability of exit polls to begin with). Pennsylvania doesn't, so I think that old patterns might now hold true.

Perhaps while the pollsters are interviewing these exits, they can ask about that "strategy" of theirs which seems so elusive.

-- Btw, polls close at 8 eastern/7 central, for those like me who had to look it up.

Good heavens, don't torture yourself with exit polls when the honest-to-God results will be available in a few hours.

Well, results anyway. :-)

I'm not sure even a 52-48 Obama victory would be enough. I think it's just as plausible she continues with an increasingly bitter campaign of political guerrilla warfare until the convention as that she bows out. I don't think enough of the superdelegates will be swayed by this one contest to force her out.

We look for the exit polls because they're a transitional fix for political junkies. They allay suspense just long enough to make it through to the actual results.

TV rambling in the background. ….super delegates… super delegates… super delegates… [change channel] …super delegates… super delegates…

Exciting times to be a political junky no? Although it may be in the context of a certain curse….

(BTW – little help from the kitty in the Mr. Clean thread if anyone gets a chance. Damned spam-o-nator.)

Ever since 2004, I've enjoyed watching the exit polls; it's nice to know who actually won...

Clinton continues, regardless of the results tonight, or in May, or in June. she's going to take this all the way to the back room at the convention and try to finagle it out of the supers.

The Party is her vehicle, not her ideology.
