Via CNN:

Update: the updated numbers for exit polling via CNN as of 6:30 a.m.:

Male (45%) (44%)

Clinton – 42% 47%

Edwards – 5% 2%

Obama – 46% 49%

Uncommitted – 6% 1%%

Female (55%) (56%)

Clinton – 51% 48%

Edwards – 4% 2%

Obama – 45% 49%

Uncommitted – 0%

There is no gender gap This distribution of the voters by gender is off by 3% when compared to the SurveyUSA model in its last poll before the primary (female 58%, male 42%). The gender gap (either way) is not as pronounced in the exit polling.

Barack Obama took the 18-29 year old vote (14% of those voting) 59% to 33%. Obama also took the 30-44 year old vote (26% of those voting) 52% to 41%. Hillary Clinton took the 45-59 year old vote (30% of those voting) 48% to 45%. Clinton also took the 60 and older vote (31% of those voting) 58% to 34%.

Barack Obama took the 18-29 year old vote (14% of those voting) 65% to 30%. Obama also took the 30-44 year old vote (27% of those voting) 56% to 42%. They tied the 45-59 year old vote (29% of those voting) at 49%. Hillary Clinton took the 60 and older vote (29% of those voting) 61% to 36%.

(That’s the last time I post exit polling numbers on the night of an election.)
