I know a lot of you guys have been looking for this. I've found 3 that seem to be pretty good. Fox, CNN, and the BBC have them. I know a lot of you are Fox fans but theirs actually looks the worst and since they get their results from the same consortium it really doesn't matter much. I personally think the BBCs looks the best. Here are the links:

Fox News (The link for the tracker is under "Interactive")

CNN

BBC News

if this is 'exit polling' it's pretty much useless.

No, it doesn't.

It doesn't count early voting.
It doesn't count absentee voting.
It counts a random sample of voters in preomdinately larger cities. You think they have AP pollsters in moose snort IA asking people who they voted for?

Gee, maybe to Fucking let people know it's useless before they invest their time and energy panicking over numbers that are largely meaningless.

Unless you're john "how dare you question anything I say" kerry, if you're going to say something here, be prepared to have people comment on it.

Not only is exit polling useless but you will get VERY objective results from CNN & BBC.

all the networks and the AP together form a consortium that conducts the exit polls. They ALL get the SAME numbers. Ever thought about that?

ever thought that they were so innaccurate in2000 that they broke up the consortium?

Or that their new effort in 2002 was so innacurate it blew many congressional races, and had the tv pundits with egg on their faces?

Or how they completely blew the FL governor's race in 2002?
