The exit polls released on Nov. 4, 2008, turned out to be close to the real vote this election. The only “swing” states that did not go the way the polls compiled by Pollster.com said they would were Missouri and Indiana. Some of these aren’t really swing states, such as Minnesota, but it’s still interesting to view the results.

It was a contrast to 2004, when Election Day exit polls showed a Kerry win in Ohio and Florida, and we all know what happened.....
