breaking three days from now in the super tuesday contest. as you can see, her supporters here who have been at this all night have just learned the goodd news and they are very fired up. according to our exit polls, as of right now, about six in 10 voters here in south carolina today were african american, and they went for clinton, jim, over sanders, by a staggering margin, 84 to 15. that's nearly 70 points. white voters did break for sanders, 58 to 42, but it obviously wasn't enough to overcome clinton's huge advantage with black voters.
