Interesting exit poll nugget from Ohio…
If I’m reading this exit poll correctly, 20% of Ohio Democrats who voted said race was important…and they broke for Clinton 61% to 38%.
That’s quite an edge.
ABC News polling director Gary Langer breaks it down in an email:
19 percent of whites said race was important in their vote; 80 percent, not important.
25 percent of blacks said race was important in their vote; 75 percent, not important.
Whites who said it was important went 77-21 for Clinton. White who said race was not important went 63-35 for Clinton.
Blacks overall went 86-14 for Obama. Blacks who said race was important, 84-16 for Obama.
Incidentally, the same exit polls indicates that gender was important for 17% of voters…Those voters went overwhelmingly FOR Clinton 62% to 38%.
Those who said gender was not important went for Clinton 54% to 44%.
What do you make of these numbers?
