CNN calls Wisconsin for McCain

Posted by David Postman

As soon as the polls closed moments ago CNN said exit polls show McCain winning, though there was no projection on the size of the victory margin.

On the Democratic side, CNN says exit polls show Barack Obama has a lead over Hillary Clinton but, imagine this, Wolf Blitzer says they're going to wait until the "actual votes" come in.

MORE: Exit polls show Obama with broad support, winning over white, female and working-class voters that have been Clinton mainstays. From AP:

Preliminary figures show Obama with a slight lead among whites, and he and Clinton splitting the women's vote. Obama's strength also was coming from men and the young.

On the Republican side, evangelicals are not yet embracing McCain.

About a quarter of the voters in the Republican primary were born-again, evangelical Christians, and they voted 2-to-1 for Huckabee over McCain. Evangelical voters have been the base of the ordained Baptist minister's support.
