I'm at Obama's election night event here in Raleigh. It's been held in the basketball arena at North Carolina State which gives the press section with its rows of wooden desks and folding chairs the feel of a school exam hall. 

The early exits are a mixed bunch but suggest that Hillary will both fail to secure the double victory she needs to really turn the race around and that Obama's margin in North Carolina will be bigger than Clinton's in Indiana. But looking ahead to the general election, the Obama camp has to be worried that 48 percent of voters in both states said that the Rev Wright affair was important to how they voted

I'll be live-blogging the night's events on Americano.
