Bye bye Bernie Bros meme. Hello women for Bernie! You’ll have to scroll half a page on those exit polls to get to the Democratic ones, but the big wow for the night is that Bernie not only won 83% of the under 30 voters, 66% of the 30-44 voters, and other big categories of voters, but he won 55% of the women’s vote.
Despite growingly desperate pleas from HRC surrogates in the past few days, women’s votes aren’t automatic or to be taken for granted. They need to be earned.
He also won 72% of the independent vote, an important voter demographic for the general election.
You might want to wander over there and check out the entire exit poll — just scroll through the Trumpmania on the top half. Hold your nose, avert your eyes, and keep scrolling until the lines turn blue.
That’s it. My shortest diary (or story or whatever they are now) because this is big news.
