  1. Pradeep,
    Do u think exit polls actually help us achieve any perspective or logic? But quite often results have been far from what exit polls predict. Can you, may be, write a post on ur views on this whole concept of "exit polls".

  3. exit polls may or may not tell the truth all the time as it is based on sampling method. But then all this is also based on the pulse of the population of that particular area and the channels have their dedicated staff working there for weeks or even months together. They defenitely would be in a admirable position to predict victory and defeat without much debate even without an exit poll. so the channels would generally be right unless there is a strong last minute reversal.
