Voter News Service
Robert talks with Warren Mitofsky, a consultant to CBS and CNN, and president of Mitofsky International, about the process of election exit polling, and what happened last night when the networks twice prematurely called the election in the state of Florida. Florida was first called for Gore, then later for Bush. But in both cases the race remained too close to call. Mitofsky was an early pioneer in exit polling, and founded Voter News Service, which is where most of the broadcast networks now get their exit polling data.
