Exit Polling Hamden

I just spent some time with CTBob conducting the least scientific exit poll of all time. I will let him put up the results (here sometime soon), but my impression was that both of these races will come down to the wire (based on Hamden). Oh, and, in case any one is wondering, the average age of people who voted between 10 and 12 at Spring Glen School? Maybe 10,000.

And, correcting myself from before, turnout is very heavy (that's why you don't stay at a poll from 6-7, then come home and say turnout seemed light). A town Democratic official who was going from polling place to polling place collecting turnout numbers told me that the turn out was very near 30%. At 11:30AM. Interesting.

Gabe, I'd be interested to see what turnout is like in some of the other districts in town. As I mentioned before, things are practically dead here in the 9th (West Woods).

This is a worthy effort. If Voter News Service can do it, why can't we?

Wait a minute...

Close in Hamden is not a good harbinger for Joe statewide. Virtually all of town committee was behind Lieberman and he dominated the convention endorsement. If Joe does not win, or its is very close there, it does not bode well.

Its FAR too early to be hearing a death knell for either campaign. Turnout is going to fluctuate all over the place.

Drove past three voting places in Bloomfield between 8:15 and 8:40. All were pretty quiet, though 'signed' pretty heavily.

Ct_Husky - the number that I got from the official was for the whole town. He was driving between districts. Or so he said.

Didn't exit Polls tell us that Kerry was going to win? Who cares. I think if it is close that would be a bad sign for Lamont becasue it would be a sign that interst in him has already reached its peak!

This afternoon I spent a few hours passing out flyers at my district's polling place. Mostly I met Lamont supporters, but there were a few people who told me they planned to vote for Joe as well. What's odd is that all of the Lieberman people apologized to me for doing so.
