Republicans Heart Obama In Virginia!
As a resident of DC who shops weekly across the river in Virginia, I find this CNN exit poll data (as to who voted for Clinton and who voted for Obama) in Virginia... er, telling:
Vote By Party
Clinton- 23%; Obama- 72%
Vote By Ideology
Clinton- 24%; Obama- 73%
Is U.S. Ready to Elect a Woman President?
Definitely Not Ready
Clinton- 9%; Obama- 87%
Vote by Sex and Race
Clinton- 40%; Obama- 58%
Clinton- 6%; Obama- 94%
There are a lot more stats at the link, which go far in explaining current sentiments in this Democratic Party primary race.
I don't care how people vote. The only thing that disturbs me is the total lack of party verification/ affiliation where I voted yesterday here in DC.
Only 2 people requested Republican ballots while I was in the building when asked "Democrat or Republican?" by the poll worker at the sign-in table.
And there was no exit polling in DC. None.
In the future, I'd like to see Democrats and Republicans --across the country-- actually verify their party membership/ affiliation when they show up to vote. Voting data, like that collected in Virginia yesterday, is extremely informative.
Is that too much to ask?
