Kausfiles : Obama Rides a See-Saw?: "M's point would be that this year their numbers are augmented--more people will be vertical ticket splitters because of the presence of Obama, who is not only an African American candidate--whom you might feel guilty about not picking--but a relatively unknown candidate whom you might want to hedge against, especially if you voted for him to avoid feeling guilty about not picking him (and then felt guilty about that).**"

To extend it somewhat, expect the number of people who say they voted for Barack Obama to be much higher than the percent who actually do. Hey, don't exit polls fall into that category?
