(CNN) - The Rev. Jeremiah Wright's reemergence as a campaign issue appears to have played some effect on tonight's contests, the newly released exit polls show.
In Indiana, 48 percent of Democrats who voted in the primary said Wright was an important factor in their vote while 49 percent said it was not. Those voters who said Wright was an issue overwhelmingly voted for Clinton while those who did not supported Obama by large margins.
The same is true in North Carolina. There 48 percent of Democrats said Wright affect their vote while 50 percent did not.
