      Clinton Projected Winner In Pennsylvania
      Party Switchers Make Mark

      PHILADELPHIA -- The Associated Press has projected
      Hillary Rodham Clinton the winner of the Pennsylvania
      Democratic primary election.

      CNN and NBC also projected Clinton the winner against
      rival Barack Obama.

      Early precinct votes from across Pennsylvania showed
      the former first lady running ahead in the western
      part of the state, including Pittsburgh. She's also
      ahead in the area around Scranton with large numbers
      of blue-collar voters.

      Obama is ahead in Philadelphia and the populous
      surrounding suburbs.

      The last of the big states to vote, Pennsylvania had
      158 delegates at stake, the largest prize remaining in
      a primary season that ends on June 3.

      Exit polls found that one in 10 voters, half of them
      former Republicans, changed their party registration
      to vote in the state's Democratic race. And one in
      five voters said they decided for whom to vote within
      the final week of the six-week Pennsylvania campaign.
      About one in 10 said they made up their mind Tuesday.

      The electorate was overwhelmingly white, while a
      little more than half of voters were women. About
      three in 10 were age 65 or over. A quarter had
      household family income of more than $100,000 last
      year and about as many reported having a postgraduate
      degree.

      Three in 10 Pennsylvania Democratic voters were union
      members or had one in their household. And four in 10
      had a gun owner in their household. About one in five
      voters said the race of the candidates was among the
      top factors in their vote. About as many said that
      about the candidates' gender.

      Pennsylvania Democrats had a sour view of the economy.
      Four in 10 said the country is in a serious recession
      and at least as many called it a moderate recession.
      Only about one in 10 said the economy is not in
      recession. At least half of voters said the economy
      was the most important issue facing the country. About
      half as many said Iraq was the top issue. Health care
      trailed in importance.

      With 158 delegates at stake, Pennsylvania offered the
      largest prize remaining in a primary season that ends
      on June 3.

      Obama began the night with a delegate lead,
      1648.5-1509.5, out of 2,025 needed to win the
      nomination.

      Both rivals sought to shape expectations in advance.
      Obama said he expected to lose, but narrowly, and
      worked to limit any gains Clinton made in the delegate chase.
