Fun with demographics

Here are some interesting Gallup numbers:
  • John McCain leads by double-digit margins among all educational subgroups of white voters except those with postgraduate degrees, where Barack Obama has a double-digit lead.
  • Black voters support Obama by a whopping 90% to 3%.
  • In age subgroups, McCain's strongest support (47%) is among those 65 or older, while Obama's strongest support (59%) is among those under 30.
  • White guys love them some Maverick -- McCain gets a 22-point margin among white males.
  • Single chicks love them some Hope -- Obama gets a 29-point margin among unmarried females.
  • Racist Democrats? McCain gets 14% of the votes of white Democrats.
  • Whistling Dixie? Obama leads by double digits in every region except the South, where McCain leads by 10 points.
  • Ruh-roh: Obama has a 6-point lead in battleground states.
And as of 6:52 p.m. ET, they still haven't posted the Gallup daily numbers.
