What is an exit poll?
A definition:

Exit Poll :
"A poll taken of voters as they leave the place of voting. Such polls are often conducted and widely reported by the media. The pollster asks a small percentage of the voters whether they voted for or against particular candidates and issues. Presumably, such polls should be more accurate than polls taken weeks or months before an election, when many voters may not be committed to voting a certain way." (www.pbs.org)
