Pardon me for linking to Fox:
In an e-mail entitled “The Limbaugh Effect in Indiana = 7 percent,” Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton wrote: “According to the latest exit polling data, 17 percent of voters in the Indiana primary today said they would vote for John McCain in a Clinton/McCain match-up. Forty-one percent of that number is constituted by people who voted Clinton in the primary but also indicated they will vote for McCain in the general election. That comes out to just under 7 percent of the primary electorate the number that may be attributed to a Limbaugh Effect.”
I don’t know what role Limbaugh’s minions played in determining the Indiana results, but I was shocked yesterday to see the number of voters in my heavily Republican precinct who were given blue cards (indicating they were voting on the Democratic ballot) before entering the voting booth. It’s hard to imagine that all those Republicans were voting in the Democratic primarybecause they favored Clinton or Obama over McCain.
