The exit pollsters asked whether each campaign contacted the voter personally. Thirty-nine percent of respondents said the McCain campaign had contacted them personally — and 51 percent said the Obama campaign had contacted them personally. Among those who were contacted personally by the McCain campaign, McCain won, 55-44. Among those who were contacted personally by the Obama campaign, Obama won 73-26.
And with Pennsylvania called for Obama — what everyone has euphemistically called McCain’s “narrow path to victory” has gotten a lot narrower. If he doesn’t win Virginia, he’s cooked.
