Working-class white voters rallied around Hillary Rodham Clinton to help her win Pennsylvania's Democratic primary.
Clinton won support from two of three whites without college degrees, and about the same number of whites from families earning under $50,000 a year. That's according to preliminary figures from exit polls of voters conducted for The Associated Press and the television networks. This was one of her stronger performances of the year with these groups.
Gun owners, people who attend church at least weekly, and rural
residents were all supporting Clinton by margins of about six in 10.
Rural voters named Clinton than Barack Obama as the candidate who was in touch with them, more than half said they connected with both candidates.
Obama won Democrats who had newly flocked to the party for the
day's showdown and scored even stronger than usual with blacks.
