Indiana Exit Polling and Results

Here's a thread for Indiana results. Indiana is in two time zones, so some polls close at 6 pm and others at 7pm.

CBS early exit polling for Republicans:

Early exit polling data finds a majority of Indiana GOP primary voters are angry or dissatisfied with the federal government: 34 percent said they were "angry" and 50 percent said they were "dissatisfied." (Only 14 percent said they were "satisfied" with their government.)

And outsider status is important to Indiana's voters: 59 percent said they want the next president to "be outside politics," compared with 36 percent said it was more important to "have political experience." More than half of GOP voters, 53 percent, said they felt "betrayed" by the Republican Party.

On the Democratic side (don't click, autoplay video.):

Preliminary exit polls show a plurality of voters in the Democratic race named the economy and jobs as the most important issue for them in Indiana. Nearly two-thirds said Wall Street hurts the economy while just under a third said it helps it.

Twenty-seven percent of Democratic primary voters said Hillary Clinton has attacked Bernie Sanders unfairly while 19 percent said the same about Sanders attacking Clinton.

Exit polls also show that nearly three-quarters expect Clinton to be the Democratic nominee while only 27 percent said the same about Sanders' chances. Half of Democratic voters in Indiana want to see the next president continue President Obama's policies and just over a third want more liberal policies.

Delegates, Democrats

Indiana allocates 92 delegates and they are awarded proportionally between the candidates that get at least 15 percent of the statewide vote. Because Indiana operates under an open primary system, any registered voter can cast a ballot in either the Democratic or Republican race regardless of party affiliation. This means independents can participate.

Delegates: Republican

Fifty-seven delegates are at stake in Indiana, with the lion's share going to the winner of the statewide vote: 30 of the 57 go to whoever wins the primary, while the remaining 27 are allocated based on the state's nine congressional districts. (It's also an open primary, meaning independents can vote in either the Democratic or Republican primary.)

    Race has not been called. It seems to be a complete tie, both at 50.0 percent.

    I wonder if he identifies himself with Old Testament prophets.
