(CNN) - Who showed up to vote in the Pennsylvania Democratic primary?

The exit polls show the overwhelming majority were white (80 percent) and women significantly outnumbered men (58-42 percent.)

About 40 percent were over 60, while only 10 percent were under 30.

Nearly half came from families who earn less than $50,000 a year, while close to 25 percent came from households who made more than $100,000.

Fifty-five percent did not have a college degree; 45 percent did.

Forty-nine percent said they were liberal, 40 percent said they were moderate, and 11 percent said they were conservative.

    Richard, you are right on with your comment. I just wish people would at least be open and stop being so biased.

    Just delighted that Hillary won today. While listening to the CNN pundits, regardless of their opinions, I will not vote for Obama if he ends up as the candidate. I will write in Hillary's name in the General Election, then I will leave the Democratic Party and become an Independent. The Democratic leaders have done a terrible job by not effectively addressing Florida and Michigan, which is enough for me to become an Indpendent. It is also an insult to see the DNC ignore the inequities & irregularities of the cacauses, then blindly support such an experienced and unknown as Barack Obama. If the leaders are more concerned about new, young voters over their long-term, dependable voters, then so be it, but I will not be a part of this zoo.

    I had a typo re Obama – I meant INEXPERIENCED AND UNKNOWN. Obama simply is not ready for the Presidency.
