Fun with exit polls

We talked earlier about who won on Super Tuesday (Dems, Republicans), but let's take a closer look at how they won.

There's a mountain of exit polling data to comb through, and there's going to be some variations bas on regions, but in general, there are some interesting trends to consider.

On the Democratic side…

* Despite rumors to the contrary, Democratic voters are not bitterly divided between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama — 72% of all Dems said they'd be satisfied with Clinton as the nominee, and 71% said they'd be happy with Obama.

* Clinton won women (52% to 45%), Obama won men (53% to 42%).

* "Identity" politics still matter: "Hillary Clinton carried white voters over Barack Obama, 52 to 43 percent. Obama carried black voters 82 to 16 percent. Clinton won Latinos 61 to 37 percent, and Clinton carried Asians 68 percent to 30 percent."

* On the other hand, Obama drew even with Clinton among white males, a first this year. (Perhaps John Edwards' departure helped Obama here?)

* Voters who said the economy is the top issue preferred Clinton. Those who said the war in Iraq is the top issue preferred Obama.

* Among Dems, Clinton enjoyed a five-point margin over Obama. Among independents, Obama enjoyed a 21-point margin over Clinton. On the other hand, Obama did better among self-identified liberals, but Clinton was stronger among self-identified moderates.

* The generation gap is alive and well — Obama scored big with younger voters, Clinton easily won the over 65 crowd.

This is MA only, but I found it interesting:

Interesting! I thought, Obama would win in MA. It has been a very even Super Tuesday contest between Obama and Hillary.

Hmmm...that is interesting because I didn't think religion was much of a factor in the Democratic race. Both candidates are Christian.

Yes, I'm not sure what conclusion to draw from this. Also, don't forget about the rumors about Obama being Muslim. MA is a very Catholic state, lots of Catholic dems here.

I'd be curious to know how it's divided along economic lines...across the whole nation. I'm just wondering if dividing voters into the traditional categories (women, men) tells us much anymore. I'd think that age and economic factors would have more influence on voters.

From looking briefly at the votes by county, it appears that Obama won in the more "affluent" areas. I'm thinking that correlation between income and religious affiliation would allow certain assumptions to be made from the chart regarding candidate preference by income level.

Ah, ok. That's what I was wondering. :)

That also jives with the info from your post:

* Voters who said the economy is the top issue preferred Clinton. Those who said the war in Iraq is the top issue preferred Obama.
