It could be a long night for the Democratic candidates as exit polls show a tight race in Indiana between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton.

Sanders maintained his typical wide margins among young and white voters, and he had a narrow edge among women as well.

Clinton appeared to win voters aged 50 or older, split voters between the ages of 40 and 49, and lose among younger demographics.

Exit polls also showed Sanders winning with married men, unmarried men and unmarried women. He split the votes of married women with Clinton.

Three out of four Democratic primary voters were white, according to the exit polls, and about 6 in 10 backed Sanders. Fewer than 2 in 10 were black, and 3 in 4 sided with Clinton, typical of her stronger support among black voters.
