How can they predict with such little amounts of votes...

I mean for Missouri I'm looking at Yahoo.com and only 27% has been counted and they've predicted Bush as the winner of that state. How does that make sense? What happens if the final 73 percent were all Kerry? I mean what's that all about...

exit polling and statistical modeling which is usually within a couple % of the actual tally

I don't know either, Sherry. All I know is: they can.
