The networks have called Pennsylvania for Hillary Clinton, and the initial exit polls show her winning the Jewish vote 57 percent to 43 percent. Jews made up about 7 percent of the electorate. Obama did worse among whites overall, especially Catholics. [UPDATE: The results have been adjusted: Clinton won the Jewish vote 62 percent to 38 percent. That’s about the same as she did among whites overall. While Obama did better among white Protestants, he did worse with white Catholics.]
