Primary Day Exit Polls?

Primary elections are underway today in nine states (AZ, DE, MD, MN, NH, NY, RI, VT & WI) plus the District of Columbia.  ABC's The Note reports that "there are no network exit polls" being conducted in any of these states, but their poll closing information links to official sites that will provide election returns and a run-down on each of the key races.

Regular readers will remember a similar pronouncement from The Note regarding last month's Connecticut primary.  "No pooled exit polls," they told us, only to be surprised along with everyone else when CBS News released results from its own experimental exit poll conducted outside of the official exit pool consortium.

So we won't say never.  But for now, no signs of exit polls anywhere.
