Exit polls in Texas and Ohio suggest Hillary Rodham Clinton is recovering the base of support she had been losing to Barack Obama.
In winning the two key primaries Tuesday, the exit polls suggest Clinton showed renewed strength among whites and working-class voters. They had begun deserting her in recent contests, propelling Obama to 11 consecutive state contest victories.
Clinton apparently also lured some of Obama's traditional backers, like liberal voters.
Obama got solid support from blacks and young voters in both states and the college educated in Texas. But at least for now, his recent inroads into some of Clinton's core groups, like women, the less educated and older voters, seem to have slowed.
