As in other states, early exit poll results from Democratic voters in today's primary states showed majorities were looking for a candidate with a strong chance of beating President Trump over one who shares their views on the issues.
More primary voters in Washington, where around 7 in 10 said they were seeking a candidate who could defeat Trump, felt that way than in any state that's held a nominating contest so far. In Michigan and in Missouri, just under 6 in 10 said they prioritized picking a candidate with a good chance to win.
The figure in Washington is similar to the share who said the same in Colorado and California. The Michigan and Missouri numbers, however, are slightly below similar states that voted on Super Tuesday, such as Minnesota, where 65% felt that way.
Voters in Mississippi were least likely to say that they were angry about the Trump administration — only about half said they felt that way, similar to the share who felt that way in Alabama, which held its primary last week.
Washington voters also said they were angry about the Trump administration, with more than 8 in 10 saying they felt that way. That's the highest level recorded in Democratic primary exit polls this cycle.
In Michigan and Missouri, about two-thirds said they were angry — again, slightly lower than in Minnesota.
