I'm an opponent of early exit polls, but, once the polls close, I'm fully in favor of them. The results for the Vermont governor's race are really interesting. Republican Gov. Jim Douglas is clearly going to take the most votes. However, he needs to get to 50% to avoid having the race thrown into the state House of Representatives.
The exit poll in Vermont (via CNN) shows Douglas getting 51% of men and 48% of women. In other words, it's going to VERY close.
Regardless, I believe strongly that Douglas will get another term. Especially with the exit poll indicating that Democrat Gaye Symington is running in third (and Douglas winning by a large margin), there's no way the House will deny another term.
