Results from this exit poll are percentaged horizontally. Each line indicates the percentage of the group that voted for each candidate or issue. When a line contains only zeros, it means that the number of cases in that group was too small for reliable analysis.

The exit poll tables contain abbreviations for questions and answers. For the full text of the questions, please consult the exit poll questionnaire.
