17. States where Obama won GOP crossover voting according to CNN exit polls; MO, LA, VA, & TX
CNN only gives breakdown for each candidate when the percentage of Republicans is 5% or greater and even then they did not always determine a winner so we have limited data. But with that at minimum 5% we can see where Obama has built his delegate lead to this point.

Party affiliations are usually on page 3 of the exit poll.

For instance for Feb 5th elections we only have Alabama & Missuori

In AL, Hillary beat Obama 52 to 45 in Republican votes - http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/primaries/results/epol...

In MO, Obama won GOP votes 75 to 21 - http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/primaries/results/epol...

Obama also won Republicans (usually in the same 3 to 1 fashion Hillary just did) in:

LA - http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/primaries/results/epol...

VA - http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/primaries/results/epol...

They tied the GOP vote in OH - http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/primaries/results/epol...

Obama won the GOP vote in TX 53 to 46 - http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/primaries/results/epol...

Then we have MS which Hillary won by her 3 to 1 margin - http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/primaries/results/epol...

For those keeping score at home when the data is available to determine a winner, Hillary has won 2 matches involving GOP crossover votes one of them handily enough for her to get extra delegates.

Obama has won the crossover vote 4 times. 3 times by a 3 to 1 margin. Once by a slim margin.
