Now that the elections are over, it does not hurt to read some of these very interesting Post-Election surveys. Among them were how President-Elect Barack Obama won the highest income voting bracket of $200,000K & above. Another amazing stat was how President-Elect Obama won the Catholic vote despite a very hard push by the Catholic church on the Pro-Life issue. Exit polling also showed that Jews & Muslims both gave President-Elect Obama a landslide victory in their community. Another was Obama's success in penetrating the once key solidly republican Cuban community of Florida. If President Obama can repeat that performance again in Florida in 2012, the GOP will have a very tough time carrying Florida.
Another fascinating exit poll was done by CBS & released today.
It showed that if Sen. Hillary Clinton was the nominee, she would have also easily beat Senator McCain for the Presidency by 9%.
It was also great to see the virtually all the average pollings done from realclear, 538 & others were all pretty close to the actual outcome.
At the end of the day, this was truly our year as democrats. It would have been a miracle for any Republican to have won in this environment. With that said, the win of President-elect Obama was the most exciting & truly touching victory ever. Any Obama supporter will never forget that feeling for the rest of their life.
Lastly, a Gallup poll today shows that many conservatives are happy so far with what they see from President-Elect Obama. His team looks prepared, professional & efficient. Its pretty impressive.
