Comment: I was a poll worker

(See in situ)


I was a poll worker

and based the demographics that came in and who I would guess they would vote for based purely on my observations (so educated guessing based on demographic trends and the voter's behavior), coupled with the response at our caucus meetings back in April (or whenever they were, I forget now), I think these exit poll #'s are genuinely outlier results. That's not to say that I think the official results are legit (I'd be surprised if they were "pure"), but there's no way Paul beat Romney in Utah. I was disappointed that Paul only got 4% (officially), but I would have been shocked beyond belief if he'd gotten over 10% or so. I am more skeptical of the official Hatch numbers as I felt it was a closer race (though it doesn't surprise me Hatch won).
