    "It is good to be home," said Sanders, who said it means so much to him that people from his home stage "have voted so strongly to put us in the White House."

    "This campaign is not just about electing a president; it is about transforming America," he said.

    Sanders repeated parts of his stump speech about how Americans shouldn't allow billionaires and super PACS to "destroy American democracy." He also took a swipe at Clinton, saying she and the establishment are wrong to accuse Sanders of thinking too big.

    7:22 p.m. Eighty-two percent of Virginia's black Democratic primary voters supported Clinton while only 18 percent backed Sanders.


    7:07 p.m.Clinton is doing well among all demographic group except for young people. As the exit polls show, she is winning black voters overwhelmingly and white voters by a narrower margin.

    6:19 p.m.With the exception of Sanders' home state of Vermont, majorities of voters feel that Clinton is the candidate who will best be able to handle Supreme Court nominations.

    6:00 p.m.With the exception of Vermont, majorities of Democratic voters want to continue President Obama's policies. This validates Clinton's efforts to embrace Mr. Obama and his policies and it suggests that among Democratic primary goers, even after seven years, the president remains very popular within his party.

    Mr. Obama's policies are most popular in Alabama, where 68 percent of Democratic voters say they want to continue them. Sixty percent of voters in Georgia and Virginia say the same.


    In Vermont, 51 percent of voters say they want more liberal policies; one third of voters in Massachusetts and Oklahoma say the same. On the other hand, 22 percent of Democratic voters in Oklahoma say they want less liberal policies.
