The first exit poll results from Super Tuesday are rolling in. Overall, the results appear to be good for Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. The exit polls are only collected in states holding primaries, not caucuses. The Associated Press reported the results, and the polls were conducted by Edison Research.



Donald Trump's proposal to temporarily ban non-citizen Muslims from entering the United States proved popular among Republican primary voters.

Two-thirds of voters in Texas, Virginia, and Georgia; 7 in 10 voters in Tennessee; and 8 in 10 in Alabama supported the proposal.

However, Republican voters less favorably viewed deporting undocumented immigrants already in the country. The only state where a majority of voters supported deportation was Alabama, while in Virginia and Georgia providing some kind of path to legal status was more popular.

Federal Government

About 80 percent of overall GOP primary voters said they were "down" on the way the federal government is operating. There was a split over whether voters were "dissatisfied" or "angry." In Virginia, Vermont and Massachusetts, the majority of voters described their sentiments as "dissatisfied," while other states were split between the two. Trump will likely be counting on the "angry" votes to fuel his campaign.



In three Democratic primaries, White voters constituted less than half of the votes. In Alabama and Georgia, nearly half of Democratic primary voters were Black. These numbers could be good for Hillary Clinton, since she swept the Black vote in South Carolina 84-16 percent over Bernie Sanders. Black voters accounted for a quarter of primary voters in Arkansas, Tennessee and Virginia. In Texas, 3 in 10 voters were Hispanic and under 2 in 10 were Black.

President Obama

Eight out of nine Democratic states voting were more likely to support a continuation of President Obama's policies as opposed to a more liberal agenda. This again could be good news for Hillary Clinton, who has portrayed herself as more in line with President Obama. Vermont, Bernie Sanders' home state, was the only state that preferred a switch to more liberal policies.
