EXIT POLLS: Negative Campaign Tarnishes Clinton, Obama  —  Preliminary Exit Polls Show Few Last-Minute Deciders in Pennsylvania Primary  —  Despite all the down-to-the-wire campaigning, preliminary exit poll results indicate that nearly eight in 10 Pennsylvania voters made up their minds …

The Campaign Spot:
On the Verge of a Stunner in Pennsylvania?  —  Hold on to your hats.  I've gotten the usual word of the exit poll results from one of my usual reliable sources.  He notes that Obama traditionally over-performs in the earliest exit polls, and that he expects the numbers to change as the night wears on - perhaps a reversal.
Mark Blumenthal / Pollster.com:
LIVE BLOGGING PENNSYLVANIA EXIT POLLS AND VOTE RETURNS  —  I will be live-blogging here starting very soon on what the exit polls will have to tell us about the exit polls.  More details to follow, but please feel free to use this as an open-thread on what is appearing on the net and elsewhere on the exit polls.
Brendan Loy / Irish Trojan in Tennessee:
Don't trust the unweighted exit polls!  —  [UPDATE, 8:12 PM: Welcome, new readers!  The scenario I predicted in this post is now happening.  Some leaked exit poll numbers show Obama winning, others Clinton leading by a slight margin.  Regardless, it's all meaningless.
Marc Ambinder:
Exit Polls: Change And Polarization  —  From the folks at CBS News, a look at the early exit polls:  —  The exit polls show a smaller percentage of late deciders — 23% — than in previous states.  The economy mattered most to 54% of voters.  (TV news reports say that Clinton won these folks.)

New York Times:
The Low Road to Victory  —  The Pennsylvania campaign, which produced yet another inconclusive result on Tuesday, was even meaner, more vacuous, more desperate, and more filled with pandering than the mean, vacuous, desperate, pander-filled contests that preceded it.
Jennifer Parker / ABCNEWS:
Dems Fight On; Clinton Wins PA Primary  —  Despite Delegate Lead, Obama Can't Seem To Lock Up Democratic Nomination  —  Sen. Hillary Clinton has won the Pennsylvania primary vote as expected, ABC News has projected.  —  Clinton has led polls in the state, and her win now fuels questions …

Matthew Yglesias:
Popular Vote  —  Suppose Hillary Clinton wins a huge victory tonight and manages to pull ahead of Obama in the popular vote total.  I still don't see how that could possibly secure her the nomination as long as the national polling looks anything like this.
Pajamas Media:
Drunkblogging Pennsylvania  —  Vodkapundit's Stephen Green has broken out the high-end shot glasses in honor of today's long-awaited PA primary.  We've asked him to hand over his keys and share with you his unique take on this critical vote. … Or maybe you can just lose to Hillary by less than ten points in Pennsylvania today.
Marc Ambinder:
Who Wins?  Both, And Neither  —  The bottom line for tonight: both fields of spin have within them a few grains of truth.  It's still likely that Obama wins the nomination, and it's true that his pledged delegate lead will still be in excess of 150 when tonight ends; it's true that Clinton …

McCain's Peak?  —  Even with the Democratic Party locked in a fierce civil war, John McCain still hasn't pulled ahead of either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama in national polls.  —  The Democratic primary campaign - divisive, bitter, and seemingly endless - has made many Republicans optimistic …

Clinton Internet Fundraising: 100K in 20 minutes?  —  Take this with a grain of salt since it's coming from the Clinton campaign, but a senior campaign official says Clinton has raised $100,000 in 20 minutes from the Internet.
Jonathan Chait / The New Republic:
Today's Primary Thoughts  —  NBC's Ron Allen makes a smart point I haven't seen elsewhere: Hillary Clinton's two main campaign justifications contradict each other.  Justification number one is that Obama can't win “the big states that Democrats will need in November.”

Domenico Montanaro / MSNBC:   AROUND IN CIRCLES?  —  From NBC's Ron Allen  —  Sen. Clinton …
Matthew Yglesias:
Save Us!  —  I have to say that I'm getting really tired of this.  All the superdelegates should just say who they're voting for and bring this to the end.  If they want to back Hillary Clinton despite Obama's majority in elected delegates, they should say so.  Or if they want Barack Obama to be the nominee, they should say so.

Marc Ambinder:
A Note On Pledged Delegates  —  As NBC's Chuck Todd points out tonight, Clinton's chances of winning the nomination based on pledged delegates is effectively over tonight.  —  If Obama keeps his pledged delegate lead to around 150, Clinton needs to win 70% of them on May 6 — and if not, 80% of them after May 6.

BILL: 'I'M NOT GOING TO PLAY YOUR GAMES'  —  From NBC/NJ's Mike Memoli and NBC's Mark Murray  —  At the Jewish Community Center in Pittsburgh this morning, Bill Clinton took questions from local press after shaking a lot of hands.  NBC/NJ asked him about the WHYY radio interview …
David Freddoso / The Corner:
Mighty Casey has struck out  —  Amen to that, Kathryn.  Practicing Pennsylvania Catholics (weekly massgoers, by the canonical definition) made up 17 percent of the vote in the Democratic primary.  They went 71 to 28 percent for Hillary over Obama.  Non-practicing Catholics made up 18 percent …
