Limbaugh Chaos

Were the Indiana results skewed by Rush Limbaugh?

He has been urging Republicans to cross party lines and vote for Hillary Clinton, hoping to extend the Democratic race and deliver who he believes is an easier candidate for John McCain to beat in the fall.

NBC News exit polls, however, show that Rush’s effect is negligible.

Some 11% of Democratic primary voters were Republicans, but 52% voted for Clinton and 46% voted for Obama. Rather inconclusive.

And of those GOP crossover voters, 58% think that Obama will have an easier time beating McCain and 37% believe Clinton will.

An alternate take on the Limbaugh effect here.
