NEWSFLASH: Exit Polls - Narrowly Democrat Senate


According to first exit poll results published on the web the Democrats are headed for a 1 seat majority in the Senate with 51 seats to 49. However several races are very close & the GOP has issued a press release warning people not to take too much notice of exit polls.

Exit polls in the 2004 Presidential elections markedly underestimated the official vote count.

Democrats are leading in Rhode Island (+7), Virginia (+7), Pennsylvania (+15), Ohio (+14), New Jersey (+8), Montana (+9), Missouri (+2).
