Hillary Clinton continues to grab the gay vote.
A number of news agencies went after the homos after yesterday’s super duper primary votes and The Advocate‘s Kerry Eleveld turned the data into this easily digestible snippet:
The exit polling found that among the 4% of California voters who identified as GLB, 63% voted for Clinton, 29% for Obama, and 1% for Edwards. In New York, 7% of voters self-identified as GLB and 59% voted for Clinton, 36% for Obama, and 3% for Edwards.
New York and California were the only states in which this question was asked. The results show that the GLB electorate didn’t move much from where they were last fall in Hunter College’s national polling of the community, when likely GLB voters preferred Clinton by 63%, Obama’s by 22% and Edwards at 7%.
Looking at these numbers, it seems that at least 3% of New York’s gays and !% of California’s didn’t receive the memo that Edwards dropped out of the race.
