Here is a key quote from a posting by Jay Cost, about three years ago:

Gallup and Pew Consistently Underestimate Republican Identifiers Relative to the Exit Poll.

Pew tends to be more pessimistic about the GOP's standing than Gallup, but both always show fewer Republicans than the exit polls. The difference is typically 5 to 7 points.

I recall your making a similar point prior to the AZ-8 special as to why polls showing a Barber lead were inaccurate.

Incidentally one of the theories I've seen concerning exit polls is that exit pollsters are more likely to exit poll young females compared to other demographics in the electorate.
