WI Early Exits

leave a comment »

As always, exits have been leaked and are starting to show up on the Internet. These are good for Obama, but then again nearly all the exits have been good for Obama.

Here’s Politco:

Democratic officials with access to exit polls say Senator Obama looks like he’s headed for a huge win in today’s Wisconsin primary. The polls could turn out to be off, as they have in the past. But the officials’ revelation reflects the chatter in the campaigns in advance of the 9 p.m. Eastern poll closing.

The party officials said that if the trends reflect in the interviews with hundreds of Badger State voters, the news out of the primary will be: Obama encroached deeply into three of Clinton’s core groups of voters – women, those with no college degree and those with lower incomes – while giving up none of his own. However, Clinton looked to be winning senior citizens, the officials said.

And here’s Halperin with the Fox News exits:

Women: Obama 51%, Clinton 49%

Families with income under 50,000: Obama 51%, Clinton 49%

Independents: Obama 63%, Clinton 34%

Rare to see actual, specific numbers so early.

Polls in Wisconsin close at 9 ET. I’ve got a lot of work tonight, but I’ll try to throw one or two things up if I can.
