6:00 PM PT (kos): CNN exit polls say 50-50 Walker-Barrett split.
6:03 PM PT (kos): To add, since it's not always clear -- exit polls are POLLs. They have a margin of error. So they get adjusted continuously over the evening as real results start streaming in.6:05 PM PT (Kaili Joy Gray):
6:09 PM PT (kos): Remember that We Ask America poll? 54-42. Ha ha ha ha!
Wait, did I just see CNN show that exit polls show Obama 54, Romney 42?
6:11 PM PT (Steve Singiser): A little bit southwest of Wisconsin, polls have now closed in South Dakota, and results are coming in fast. Matt Varilek looks very likely to be the Democratic nominee against Jeff Barth, according to early returns. He leads Barth 74-26, with just under a quarter of the vote in.
6:13 PM PT (kos): The first batch of exit polls had Obama winning 51-45, which means that the second batch (afternoon voters) was heavily Democratic.
In other words, the after-work vote.
6:13 PM PT (jeffmd): In NJ-09, we're seeing some Kaptur/Kucinich-esque margins. Pascrell leads by a stunning 90-10 in his home county of Passaic, while Rothman commands Bergen 75-25. Much much more of Passaic is reporting, so Pascrell sports an 88-12 overall lead at the moment.
