Comparing home state performances, it looks like Obama’s support among exit poll respondents was 68.3 percent. Clinton didn’t crack 30 percent (29.8). All sorts of ways you can spin that, but one that Obama’s folks will seize on — and rightfully so — is that he actually ran a fairly respectable race in Clinton’s home state compared to her performance in his.
And oh, yeah: Illinois is Clinton’s home state, too (born and raised there, if you’re keeping score at home).

Dan: When Clinton was a kid, she and her family lived in the 5700 block of North Winthrop. I believe that the building is gone, and the property has become a parking lot for surrounding buildings. She is thus a Chicago native. The family later removed to Park Ridge.
