Pennsylvania exit polls

I was going through the PA exit polls and thought a few breakdowns were quite interesting.

Age: Obama easily beat Clinton in the 18-39 age group while Clinton was much stronger among 40+. The major difference was the 40+ age group accounted for 78% of total voters.

Religion: Catholics voted for Cinton over Obama 70% to 30%. Those who identified there religion as none went for Obama 62% to 38%

In previous contests the major divides other than race were education and income. In PA Clinton had a 55 to 45 edge among voters making above and below $50,000. Clinton led among college educated voters 51% to 49% and 58% to 42% among voters without a college education.
