Early Exit Polls Favor Barack Obama

According the Huffpost, the exit polls in several major states (including Florida) favor Senator Barack Obama. Exit polls are an inexact science because they ask voters to reveal who they voted for as they leave the booth. So far, Obama voters have been ready to give their info.

The states looking good for Obama:

Florida: 52 percent to 44 percent

Iowa: 52 percent to 48 percent

Missouri: 52 percent to 48 percent

North Carolina: 52 percent to 48 percent

New Hampshire: 57 percent to 43 percent

Nevada: 55 percent to 45 percent

Pennsylvania: 57 percent to 42 percent

Ohio: 54 percent to 45 percent

Wisconsin: 58 percent to 42 percent

Indiana: 52 percent to 48 percent

New Mexico: 56 percent to 43 percent

Minnesota: 60 percent to 39 percent

Michigan: 60 percent to 39 percent

The states where McCain is leading in exit polls:

Georgia: 51 percent to 47 percent

West Virginia: 45 percent to 55 percent

Again, as a point of caution, here is what Democratic pollster Stan Greenberg said about exit polls in an interview today with the Huffington Post: “The biggest problem with exit polls is… we do know that young voters are much more likely to do an exit survey and seniors are much less likely to do an exit poll,” he said. “So exit polls are heavily waited to young people, which normal bias favors Democrats especially this year.”
