Update [2008-2-9 22:8:45 by Jerome Armstrong]:Exit polls by CNN: A HUGE skin-color split: Clinton winning 62-75 percent of the white vote, and Obama winning 74-86 percent of the black vote.
Update [2008-2-9 22:23:22 by Jerome Armstrong]:
I find the color divide pretty disturbing for both candidates:
Clinton Obama White Men 66 28 White Women 73 24 Black Men 19 80 Black Women 16 84One other polarizing split shows that 28% of Clinton supporters, and 24% of Obama supporters, will be satisfied only if their candidate is the nominee. That doesn't bode well for either candidate as the nominee wanting 100% support, especially if this isn't settled until just before Labor Day.
