  •  AZ Has The Second Largest Share Of Youth Vote. (7+ / 0-)

    (After California). A whopping 26% of the AZ electorate was young. And they went for the Democrat by a relatively respectable 27 points. AZ could well be the next pin to fall.

        According to tthe exit polls, the white vote collapsed from 2008 to 2012 - from 40% Dem to 32%, even though McCain was the 2008 nominee. That's a very ominous sign about racial polarization there.

        But exit polls are just polls. If Romney's margin narrows to 7-8 points or so, then maybe that would suggest it's not as bad as all that.
