So much for the lefty moonbat conspiracy theories

If you remember, right after the election the Democrats were pointing to exit polls that showed Kerry winning as proof of Republican voter fraud. It couldn't be the polls that were wrong, could it?

NEW YORK — Two firms that conducted Election Day exit polls for major news organizations reported Wednesday that they found a number of problems with the way the polls were carried out last year, resulting in estimates that overstated John Kerry's share of the vote.

Edison Media Research (search) and Mitofsky International (search) found that the Democratic challenger's supporters were more likely than President Bush's supporters to participate in exit polls interviews. They also found that more errors occurred in exit polls conducted by younger interviewers, and about half of the interviewers were 34 or under.,2933,144859,00.html
