A Quick Exit for Poll Pas­time

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page - A PRASAD

This refers to ‘Why Exit Polls Of­ten get it Wrong’. For whose ben­e­fit are the bizarre exit polls con­ducted? Hav­ing waited for so long, can we not wait an­other 72 hours? Why this im­pa­tience to fly kites? As the edit points out, such polls have failed mis­er­ably in 2004 and 2009. Of course the party wish­ing to claim the hot seat must have spent mil­lions on this pan­tomime. Many vot­ers told me they had lied in such polls. It’s time the EC or the Supreme Court ban­ished this af­flic­tion.
