UPDATE #1 - 1815 EST - MORE Exit Poll Information

BEWARE! Exit Poll info. Four years ago, Kerry was winning in a landslide, according to exit polls at that time. That, of course, was totally incorrect.

CHANGE! voters favor Obama 91-8%.
New voters favor Obama 67-29%.
New voters are not making up any larger percentage of of the electorate than in previous years.

Clinton Democrats are saying they are backing Obama 82-16% in Ohio.

Both sides are turning out voters in big numbers.

No information yet about how Obama's remarks about coal, which were publicized the last several days, are affecting the vote in coal states.

More Exit poll info:

40% think McCain is in touch.
42% think Obama is too liberal.

Some polls have Obama trailing by 5% in Indiana.

Sarah Palin was cleared of ethic charges yesterday. How much press coverage did that receive? We're looking right now.

It was covered by the Associated Press. There are a few stories on Google News--but not nearly as many as reported the earlier report that she was "guilty" of ethics violations.
