NEWSFLASH: Exit Polls - Narrowly Democrat Senate
Via.... http://americablog.blogspot.com/
According to first exit poll results published on the web the Democrats are headed for a 1 seat majority in the Senate with 51 seats to 49. However several races are very close & the GOP has issued a press release warning people not to take too much notice of exit polls.
Exit polls in the 2004 Presidential elections markedly underestimated the official vote count.
