Should bloggers post early exit poll data?


No, says the indignant moralist who loudly informs everyone within earshot that there is nudity on channel 35 at 10:15 pm every other night.

Pundits now talk about elections in progress when they know full well the results of exit polls (which are useful, but by no means perfect) and yet they withhold that information from their audiences. How silly is that?

[update: a commenter points to Jack Shafer's take on this.]
