(CNN) – How big of an impact did Rush Limbaugh’s ‘Operation Chaos’ have in Indiana? Did GOP voters really cross over to create havoc in the Democratic primary by voting for Hillary Clinton, as he’d asked his listeners to do?

Roughly one in ten of the state’s Democratic primary voters were Republican — and that group did vote for Hillary Clinton, 53 to 47 percent over Barack Obama. Independents — who made up about a quarter of the electorate — voted for Obama, 53 to 47 percent.

For whatever reason, self-identified conservative voters did overwhelmingly support Clinton – two out of three cast their votes for the New York senator.

Since many reports show that 80% of the crossover conservative voters intend to vote for McCain in November, this smacks overwhelmingly of election fraud by Rush Limbaugh, but also shows that Clinton can’t win without the kind of help that the Democratic Party doesn’t need nor want.

Obama wins by an landslide in North Carolina. He has a significant lead in the popular vote. He has a significant lead in the delegate count. Hang it up, Hillary! You’re done, and you’re only helping John McCain.
