Tonight is the night… Indiana and North Carolina polls are closing very shortly. The spin will immediately begin. Did Hillary win over any African Americans? Is Obama still losing among White Voters making less than $50,000 per year? Does Hillary have enough steam to defy the Democratic establishment and continue on? What happens at the DNC meeting on May 31st?
Ultimately – the question is this: Did anything happen tonight that solidifies John McCain’s appeal among centrist Democrats, Independents, and disgruntled Clinton/Obama supporters?
Check back here just after the polls close, I will be posting Exit Polling Data!
