Clinton's supporters in Puerto Rico say they won't be happy if Obama wins the nomination.

(CNN) – Puerto Rican voters appear to be as divided as Democrats on the mainland, according to CNN's exclusive exit polls.

Among Hillary Clinton's supporters there, 72 percent said they would not be satisfied if Barack Obama wins the Democratic nomination, while only 26 percent said they would be.

Obama's supporters were slightly more willing to support Clinton, but not very. Nearly 60 percent said they would be dissatisfied if the New York Democrat won the nomination, while only 38 percent said they would be satisfied.

Puerto Ricans are not eligible to vote in the general election.

    It seems Geraldo and all the PR political figures are making it seem like the island is a majority against Obama. Why is that?

  6. LT for Obama

    What I find scary is that I read one person's reason for supporting Clinton and that was that she has Bill who is a great advisor. So basically, they are expecting this to be Bill's third term.

    Um I could be wrong but Democrats in Puerto Rico a clearly not divided. They have consistantly polled higher for Hillary at large numbers. Nice spin once again ONN.

    The Democrats will unite for McCain! :)

    Obama is a fatally flawed arrogant/user candidate and McCain is much closer to the heart of America in contrast to the sloppy love fest of the postmodern in the moment diatribes!
