Results based on the first few rounds of interviewing are usually only approximations of the final vote. Printouts warn that estimates of each candidate's support are unreliable and not for on-air use. Those estimates are untrustworthy because people who vote earlier in the day tend to be different from those who vote in the middle of the day or the evening. For instance, the early national sample Tuesday that was 59 percent female probably reflected that more women vote in the day than the evening.
Summing it all up, particularly to counter Dan's bitchfest that Kerry won, YOU'RE WRONG. Game over. Good bye. Ciao. Au Revoire. Dos vidanya. Arrive derche. Aloha and mahalo.
