Exit polls: Clinton viewed as attacking unfairly

(CNN) – It's been a negative campaign and only gotten more negative as the campaign drags on.

But do voters blame either candidate for being more negative than the other? The answer is yes.

Voters in both states were asked if they thought either candidate has attacked his or her opponent unfairly.

In Indiana, 63 percent of Democratic voters said Clinton attacked Obama unfairly. That compares 43 percent who said Obama attacked unfairly.

In North Carolina, two-thirds of Democrats say Clinton attacked unfairly while 40 percent of Obama did.

    Anyone offended by Wright is weak, and a racist themselves. I thought Americans had thicker skin. You wouldn't survive long out in the world. Poll this, do people who are offended by Wright support McCain if Hillary is not the nominee? Wright is history, get over it! And to my dear friends in North Carolina, YES WE CAN! Obama '08!

    She is as low as you can get but apparently many Americans can't see past that. We as Americans, like to see all the negativity and nasty ads. We must or we wouldn't cast a hard earned vote for her

    Never thought I'd see the day where blacks would turn their backs on the Clintons....

    They have done everything in their power to bring obama down to their level. Because their message could not compete with his message.

    Their only alternative... go negative.... tear him down. But neither Hillary supporters.. (or the campaign workers that flood this blog everyday) will ever admit it.

    (cowards...)
