Interestingly enough, CNN still has their 1996 election night website up, though some of the links are broken.

http://www.cnn.com/ALLPOLITICS/1996/elections/

Here's the 1996 national exit poll...

Yeah, one of these days. I assume I have to get it on DVD first, then rip it onto my computer?

Because he's not an idiot like Carter and he actually waited for some results to come in.

http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/MNSxp.html

Is Wellstone Too Liberal? 51/46 yes

Of the people who said yes, 21% of them voted for Wellstone

http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/MASxp.html

Of the people who voted for Kerry, 3% of them said that it would be best if Weld was the Senator (instead of being Governor, or neither).

2% of Weld voters said that it would be best for Weld if he had neither post.

MOE madness!

So as not to hurt Republican turnout on the West Coast.

No one will ever repeat Carter's error of conceding so early. Carter really hurt Democratic turnout in 1980 on the West Coast by conceding so soon (I believe it was at about 9 PM that he gave his concession speech). The Democrats did much more poorly than expected in Congressional races on the West Coast, which is, I'm sure, no coincidence.

So even though waiting until after 11 PM is purely academic in a race that isn't close, I don't think you'll ever see a concession speech earlier than that again. The losing candidate has always since and probably always will at least wait for the polls to close on the West Coast. (The polls in Alaska were actually still open when Dole conceded, but that wasn't any worry for the Republicans obviously. If Alaska ever does have a tight race, expect no concession before midnight).

Yeah, the Kerry/Weld results you cited make absolutely no sense at all. Presumably some people just didn't understand the question, or deliberately were trying to screw with the pollsters. There's no other explanation for saying you want Kerry to lose, yet having voted for him.

With regards to Wellstone, the 21 percent voting for him is believeable. Although he may have been too liberal for some voters, he still could well be the lesser of the two evils and thus still gotten their votes.

Arguably, there is.  You could want Kerry to lose, but want Bush to lose more, and swallow your pride.

Assuming you mean "Weld", not "Bush", that isn't possible to be the case, because the people said "it would be best if Weld was the [Massachusetts] senator", so that statement implies that they consider Weld preferable to Kerry in the senatorial slot.
