More than half of Democrats voting in Tuesday's West Virginia primary told exit pollsters they will not vote for Hillary Clinton, their party's likely nominee, a sign that her statement about putting the coal industry out of business hurt her there.

And only a fourth of Democrats in that state who come from coal industry households voted for Clinton, even though she tried to assure West Virginian's she misspoke at a Kentucky town hall event when she said, renewable energy plan would "put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business."

Here are the results, as reported by Fox News Channel:

Coal industry households:
  • Sanders: 68 percent
  • Clinton: 24 percent

Worried about the economy:
  • Very: 67 percent
  • Somewhat: 24 percent
  • Not too: 7 percent
  • Not at all: 2 percent

  • Clinton: 44 percent
  • Trump: 33 percent
  • Neither: 21 percent

2016 vote for president between a Sanders/Trump matchup:

  • Sanders: 48 percent
  • Trump: 32 percent
  • Neither: 18 percent

Policies of next president should be:
  • Same as Obama: 27 percent
  • More liberal: 25 percent
  • Less liberal: 42 percent
Selection process for Democratic nominee has been:
  • Fair: 60 percent
