Andrew refers us to this analysis of the new Prop 8 Study. I don't find it very convincing. But I learned something the other day from that OED debate--I need to go do my job. Yesterday, I started making calls to do some reporting on the new report, on the original exit polls and the critique of both.

There's a difference me playing amateur stat-boy, and me taking some time to gather facts  from the pros. I'm aiming for the latter. I invite anyone who's done any research on polling, what exit polls can--and can't--tell us, to use the big "e-mail Ta-Nehisi" button over there. I will respond.  I'm not going to get angry. I'm going to get some facts.
