The Pennsylvania Exit Poll thread (below) is now closed. All discussions may continue here.
The huge success of the thread was slowing down the system and making it very hard for folks to scroll through. So comment away on this shorter thread. ENJOY!
Well, the polls have closed now, even in Philadelphia, and Hillary took it by my predicted 10%. I think it is the first time this election season that I have been correct!
Hillary Clinton 1,258,245 54.69% 66 Delegates
Barack Obama 1,042,297 45.31% 57 Delegates
McCain, of course won as well.
Part of the problem here is that even though Hillary won, the Dems do not have a winner-take-all system (which actually, I like the fairness of the Dem system – now if they just get rid of those super delegates…), so even with the win, she only picked up a 9 delegate lead over Obama in PA, which does not get her very far in the overall delegate count.
The Delegate totals are:
Pledged Delegates 1479 – 1328 Obama + 151 Popular Vote 49.2 – 47.5 Obama +1.7
Popular Vote (w/FL) 48.3 – 47.6 Obama +0.7
LA Times/bloomberg has Obama up by 5% in Indiana, SurveyUSA has Clinton by 16%.
Both polls were taken 4/10-4/14 and 4/11-4/13 respectively.
It will be interesting to see how these numbers move after Pennsylvania.
Anyway, our Pennsylvania post below has so many comments that the system is bogged down when you want to post something.
