Get to know D.C. with our daily newsletter

We dive deep on the day’s biggest story and share links to everything you need to know.

On the way out of his polling place, at Garnet-Patterson Middle School, shortly after 7 a.m., Loose Lips learned that, to that point, Barack Obama (D-Ill.) led Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) 19-1.

LL offers this information with two caveats:

  • LL’s precinct, which encompasses the northeast portion of the U Street corridor, is rich in two key Obama demographics: yuppies and African-Americans.
  • LL gleaned this information from the exit polling of an Obama electioneer.

Happy voting, folks.
