Nine years ago I started blogging. I have been quiet the last few years when it comes to blogging. Perhaps I will pick this up again, perhaps not. What changed quite a bit is how I work as a scientist. I am using R now as my default software for analysis, and have also started to use GitHub for version control, as the cool kids nowadays do. Anyways, my website was long due an overhaul.
There are several ways to do an exit poll, but they all come down to asking people what they voted, right after they went into the voting booth. The first succesfull modern exit poll was conducted in 1967 to predict the governor’s election of Kentucky .
One of the difficulties in exit polling, is that some people might not want to say whom they vote for, especially if this person is politically controversial.
