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 …

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.

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.

Heavy Turnout in Pa.  —  Pennsylvania is on its way to the record turnout that election officials have been predicting for weeks, according to poll workers from across the state.  —  Election officials were reporting extremely heavy voter activity in many of the state's 67 counties throughout the morning …
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.

Josh Marshall / Talking Points Memo:
EXITS: BEEN THERE, DONE THAT  —  As you may have noticed Drudge has up what he says are 5 PM exit poll numbers showing Clinton 52%, Obama 48%.  I suspect they are ‘accurate’ as far as early, un-weighted exits can be.  But let me point out that my recollection is that pretty much all the early …

New York Times:
Pennsylvania Voters Flood Polls After Long Battle  —  The Pennsylvania primary appeared too close to call on Tuesday night as the polls began closing, as Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton tried to stave off a stronger-than-expected showing by Senator Barack Obama on a potentially decisive night for the Democratic nominating contest.
CNN:
Exit polls: New voters boost Obama  —  (CNN) — There were more than 150,000 new voters in the Pennsylvania primary and they overwhelmingly voted for Barack Obama, the just released exit polls show.  —  Among first time voters, 60 percent went for Obama while only 38 percent went for Clinton.
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.)

Saira Anees / Political Punch:
Why Can't Obama Win Pennsylvania?  *  —  There's this presumption out there, it seems to me, as if it's just a CRAZY notion that Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, would be able to win the Keystone State, like the idea is INSANE, just unfathomable, as if the state consists of Bill, Chelsea, and les freres Rodham.
