Nate Silver makes the case that we should ignore the exit polls. Mark Blumenthal of pollster.com makes a somewhat different argument: Ignore the exit polls that are leaked early, but use (with caution) the ones that come out once the polls are closed.
I'm sure I'll be checking exit polls throughout the night, but I'm going to make a concerted (and perhaps futile) effort to avoid the ones that are leaked early. This will involve going for a run at 5:00 ET to get away from my computer when they leak.
Please, if you see me running, don't yell any exit poll results to me. Live blogging should start around 6:00 and continue throughout the evening.
