Bloggers stole the election

Talk Left has this post noting discussion about whether bloggers are to blame for skewing the outcome of the election by leaking early exit polls.

This is funny for several reasons:

1. People don't believe what they read on the internet.
2. People don't believe polls.
3. Most people don't even read blogs.
4. Most people never knew about the exit poll data before they voted.
5. It is not clear to me that knowledge of exit poll data would change the behavior of anyone who had not voted.
