PRIMARY-EXIT POLL
(2008-01-16)
(wgvu) - AN EXIT POLL FOR THE AP AND TV NETWORKS SHOWS
MITT ROMNEY CAPITALIZED ON HIS MICHIGAN TIES IN TUESDAY PRIMARY.
ROMNEY ALSO NEUTRALIZED MIKE HUCKABEE'S STRENGTH AMONG RELIGIOUS
VOTERS.
FOUR IN 10 REPUBLICAN PRIMARY VOTERS SAY ROMNEY'S TIES TO
MICHIGAN WERE IMPORTANT TO THEIR VOTE, AND MORE THAN HALF OF THEM
VOTED FOR HIM.
JOHN MCCAIN FOUND FAR FEWER CROSSOVER VOTES AMONG THE DEMOCRATS
AND INDEPENDENTS WHO KEYED HIS VICTORY HERE EIGHT YEARS AGO.
MCCAIN STAYED COMPETITIVE WITH BACKING FROM MODERATES.
MEANWHILE, MICHIGAN'S DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY WAS BARELY CONTESTED,
AS BARACK OBAMA AND JOHN EDWARDS WITHDREW FROM THE BALLOT. IN HER
PRIMARY WIN, HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON HAD STRONG SUPPORT AMONG WOMEN
AND OLDER VOTERS.
