Exit Polls Canceled in 19 States

"Breaking from two decades of tradition, this year's election exit poll is set to include surveys of voters in 31 states, not all 50 as it has for the past five presidential elections," the Washington Post reports.

"All 19 of the states with canceled exit polls -- a break with more than two decades of tradition -- are classified as either 'solid Obama' or 'solid Romney,' and there is only one 'toss-up' gubernatorial or U.S. Senate race not on the list: the competitive North Dakota match-up of Heidi Heitkamp and Rick Berg. Two other contests in the 'leaning' Democratic category aren't on the list: the U.S. Senate race in Hawaii and the governor's race in West Virginia."
