EXIT POLL: White Working-Class vs. Change in Indiana; Blacks Lift Obama to N.C. Victory

As in Pennsylvania, there was continued criticism of Clinton in terms of the tone of the campaign. In both states Tuesday, two-thirds of voters said she attacked her opponent unfairly. Fewer – closer to four in 10 – say Obama attacked unfairly.

Even among Clinton's own supporters, majorities – 55 percent in Indiana and North Carolina alike – said she attacked unfairly. Only about three in 10 Obama supporters said the same of him.

Similarly, in a continued weakness for Clinton, fewer voters in both states rated her as "honest and trustworthy" as felt that way about Obama. Among voters who saw Clinton as not honest and trustworthy, 25 percent in Indiana and 22 percent in North Carolina voted for her anyway -- again, similar to the result in Pennsylvania.

More than six in 10 voters in both states say they'd be satisfied with either Obama or Clinton as the nominee -- but that left substantial numbers of these Democratic primary voters (admittedly in the heat of battle) who said they wouldn't be satisfied.

Indeed, in Clinton and Obama matchups against McCain, anywhere from a quarter to three in 10 Democrats said they wouldn't vote, or would support the Republican.
