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.

[More...]

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.)

    Hillary Clinton should henceforth simply ignore Lord Bernie and the Lady Jane. Given, as Jeralyn noted above, that 27% of Indiana Democrats somehow believe that she attacked him unfairly, even though she hasn't run a single negative ad against him anywhere this entire primary season, there's really nothing to be gained here by acknowledging his presence. Hillary's going to be our nominee, and the Sandernistas best get used to it.

    It's past time for Dem leadership (5.00 / 2) (#60)
    by Towanda on Tue May 03, 2016 at 09:12:54 PM EST
    to remind Bernie about his call to primary Obama.

    It's past time to talk to him about primarying him.

    Republicans now have their nominee and can work on unifying . . . while Sanders, with the attacks, keeps widening the split in the Democrats.  

    The GOP is already in the GE, and Dems are not.  Not good.

    Parent

    While she ignores him, and all those superdelegates should sit him down for a "Come to the Lord" moment.

    As far as Republicans are concerned, I think they probably have their work cut out for them. As I noted in an earlier thread, recent polls show that roughly 40% of Republican voters find Donald Trump to be unfit and unacceptable as their party's nominee.

    That's an astonishingly huge number of their own party base. The last major party candidate to have faced internal opposition like that when on the cusp of clinching the nomination was George McGovern, back in 1972.

    And even if the Republicans manage to somehow drive down those numbers and reduce that percentage by half, that still leaves one in five GOP voters -- some 12-13 million of them, if we base that on the 2012 presidential vote -- who may apparently be willing to break ranks and walk out.

    Frankly, when you also consider Trump's similarly astonishing negatives among women and minorities, he needs to draw 70% of the white male vote just to stand a chance. Uh-uh. That ain't gonna happen.

    So, for all our problems as Democrats with Bernie and Jane Sanders, I think that I'd still much rather be us than them right now.

    Aloha.

    decided to vote for the anti politician, who might just push a couple of conservative ideas.

    well, enjoy your word salads. I hope they are tasty.

    The problem is the GOP has been conning these voters for a long, long time and they are now waking up to the fact that the GOP has been conning them. So therefore they are choosing another con man only he's different flavor of con man. The stuff the GOP has been promising like a return of the 1950's is something that could never happen. Once people gain rights you think it's gonna be easy to strip them away? I know the GOP has been trying mighty hard lately to do it though trying to keep those voters happy and it seems to all be for moot.
