Watching the basketball game, but I was looking at CNN’s exit polling and something interesting jumped out at me…

Despite Clinton supporters claiming that Obama and his supporters are sexist, of people who answered the question “was the gender of the candidate important to you?” in the affirmative went for Clinton 57% to 43%. Voters who answered “no” split nearly down the middle. Additionally, of voters who said that the race of the candidate was important, Clinton was winning 56-43. Of voters who said race wasn’t important, voters split down the middle.

Very interesting.
