Rather than ask straight off the bat whether one is a RP supporter, state first after "I'm _ _ with the Ron Paul grassroots," and add:
"and we are conducting a grass roots exit poll to confirm the results of the recent election in precinct __." Then, "Would you possibly be," etc.
Also, it makes sense to have standard answers for any questions that we anticipate, like:
"Why are you calling ME?" (You are listed on the public document as a registered voter from precinct ___.)
"What do you hope to accomplish with this poll?" (We have a research team, spearheaded by an election judge (?) who are checking the voting data and ensure that voters rights have not been violated."
"Can I find out the results of your poll?" (Yes, you can go to xxx website for the results when they are tabulated.)
Just my 2 cents.
