When’s The First BlogLeak?

This will be the first presidential election of the Blogosphere Era. In the past, the MSM has managed to hold its exit polling numbers close to the vest until the polls closed (er, unless you’re talking about Florida four years ago). Can that veil of silence hold up this year, with thousands of bloggers pinging people up and down the media chain for leaks?

Who’ll be the first to leak exit polling numbers from, say, Ohio or Pennsylvania?

More interestingly, who’ll be spun with phony exit polling intended to suppress or boost the vote in one state or another?

Gonna be an interesting day…
