Exit Polling

John Lott points to some evidence that Obama’s “bitter” comments did him no favors among gun owning Democrats.  Obama learned a hard lesson about Pennsylvania voters: It’s not like Illinois, where he could safely thumb his nose at downstate people from his posh 1.6 million dollar home on the South Side of Chicago, knowing full well they can’t outvote his urban constitutents.  Pennsylvanians can and do outvote Philadelphia.  Politics here is hazardous for the inexperienced, and Obama didn’t have what it takes to navigate the minefield.
