    CBS Exits

    If these CBS exit polls are close to right, it looks like a solid night for Obama. According to this tabulation, Obama is winning women by 2 points (51% to 49%). And he's winning men 61% to 35%. The exit data shows women making up 57% of the Democratic electorate. But that still suggests a pretty solid win for Obama.

    Will this cause anybody to get back to healthcare, foreign policy and other trivial stuff, and leave the momentus issues of plagiarism and what Michelle meant by "very"?

            90 percent of the 30 percent black=27 percent. 48 percent of the 70 percent white vote=34 percent. He should get about 61 percent in virginia.




            That one turned out to be 64 percent.

            This is not rocket science----18 might be low-balling---Obama should win by 20 or more. edit oops---I did the math wrong. 51 percent of the 57 percent women equals 29, 61 percent of 43 equals 26-----the cbs exit should have yielded 55 percent. 35 times 43 would give Hillary 15 percent of the vote from males, and 28 percent from women----43 percent.

            That is how it turned out.

              Should have used the calculator---cbs was right on the money. or not. Is it now 58-41 with 95 percent in?

                  Apparently they did this time
                  “I’ve always stated, ‘I’m a Missouri Tiger,’” Anderson said March 13 after Arkansas fired John Pelphrey, adding, “I’m excited about what’s taking place here.”

                  Asked then if he would talk to his players about the situation, he said, “They know me, and that’s where the trust comes in.

                    If I had done the math correctly, I would have said obama by 12, not 18---it turned out to be 17?

                    I did the math correctly for VA---I said the exit polls give him 61---it turned out to be 64.

                      I'd say that's not possible, remember after South Carolina when people here said he wouldn't win many more state because all the states with huge black populations were just about over.

                        Yes, but you're forgetting that all the states he's won are insignificant.
