Pollsters tease ‘dramatic, decisive’ exit survey findings

Pollsters for Channels 12 and 13 are previewing what they say are “dramatic” exit poll results as they crunch the numbers with less than two hours to go until polls close.

“In all my years I’ve never seen such dramatic and decisive results,” Channel 13 pollster Kamil Fuchs says.

Channel 12 numbers man Mano Geva also says the results are “dramatic.”

Both pollsters also point to low turnout in the Arab community as an important factor. Geva calls the Arab vote “problematic.”

The previews of the exit polls are generally frowned upon as they can affect the outcome of the election. The news channels have also been known to overplay the drama of the exit poll results, which are often less than dramatic as well as dramatically incorrect.
