CNN is now projecting that Barack Obama has won the primary in Mississippi. The Democrats award a proportionate amount of the delegates, but Obama will get the biggest wedge of that sweet peach pie. Polls indicated all day that Obama was ahead in the state, which hasn't voted for a Democratic candidate in a the general election in 32 years.

And congrats to laceykk23, the magnolia blossom who correctly named that last Democratic candidate in the comments!

Jillness, it looks like this is not the first time Ferraro has used this tatic. She said similar things about Jesse Jackson in 1988. http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/0308/A_Ferraro_flashback.html Coincidence?

Good number crunching Jillness! As for the crazy lady...we should all send her letters letting her know we are sorry for her hard struggle as a Caucasian in America. It must be so difficult. Obama has it so easy with that name and that skin tone! Seriously though, I how can Obama be getting to where he is b/c he is black, but Clinton being a woman is holding her back - they are basically tied according to Clinton's people. Or let me guess, if it wasn't for the "sexist/reverse racist" media she would have swept all the states, right????

48% of the voters today in Mississippi were African American. 49% were White. Yet Obama is winning by 60% right now, with Hillary having only 38% of the vote. Obama received 90% of the African American vote, and around 30% of the white vote. This suggests that the majority of whites are voting Republican, and not Democrat.

CNN are now showing Texas as a split win between Clinton and Obama, because of the late numbers coming in from the caucuses, giving him over all more delegates. Good point, Jillness!

I was raised there and I am very happy they came out in groves to vote.

Did you hear Ferrar is now saying she is being criticized for her comment because she is white (and not because it was untrue)? That lady is devouring her feet. The Clinton's continue to support her.

A thought one of my friends had... She loses her win margins. Anytime the campaigns focus on a state, her margin goes from huge to small. In Texas she was ahead by huge numbers, and then only won the primary by 3% (while losing the caucus by around 10%, I believe.) She starts out with a name recognition lead, and the more people get to know Obama the more they like him. The details are really what make Obama such a great candidate, and I think that they get lost on people at first.

Yay for wynter for voting today! It's hard to know how many Republicans who goes out and votes for Clinton, but she did carry the red strongholds handedly. And yay for Obama for winning!

We had a low voter turnout too from what I hear (I'm from MS). I hate the vote was so racially segregated. I'm white, a registered Republican, but we have open elections for primaries. I voted for Obama. The state mostly votes Republican so I think a lot of Republicans voted for Clinton since they feel McCain stands a better chance against her. Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing either Obama or McCain in office so I voted that way. :)

Hillary is once again (like her mailer) trying to say that Obama voted for tax cuts for oil companies. She mentioned it recently in a speech. She voted against this bill. Her true intentions are shown by what the vote really was about. From Fact Check: Oil Company Tax Breaks? Both leading Democratic candidates have referred to tax breaks to oil companies: Clinton, July 23, 2007: First of all, I have proposed a strategic energy fund that I would fund by taking away the tax break for the oil companies, which have gotten much greater under Bush and Cheney. Obama, June 22, 2007: In the face of furious lobbying, Congress brushed aside incentives for the production of more renewable fuels in favor of more tax breaks for the oil and gas companies. Both candidates are referring to H.R. 6, the 2005 energy bill that contained $14.3 billion in subsidies for energy companies. However, as we’ve reported numerous times, a vast majority of those subsidies (all but $2.8 billion) were for nuclear power, energy-efficient cars and buildings, and renewable fuels research. In addition, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service, the tax changes in the 2005 energy bill produced a net tax increase for the oil and gas companies, as we’ve reported time and time and time again. They did get some breaks, but they had more taken away.

bethany, the state hasn't gone "blue"in 32 years, and I think that ties in a lot. It would be interesting to see the percentage of white voters that are democrats and republicans.

Yeah, Chris Matthews is always kind of...frothing at the mouth. I don't think you can really put too much stock in the whole "racial divide" thing. White Democrats are a serious minority in MS. I was not at all surprised when I read on CNN that 70% of registered Dems in MS are black. What I'm saying is, you're working with a very bad sample. I'm terrible at math, but I think what I'm saying makes sense. Can anybody more math-minded back me up? Like, sure only 72% of whites voted for Clinton, but that's not really a lot of people. And Citizen, it's more apt to be peach cobbler, honey. ;)

And sometimes his eyes get red at the same time! The combo just looks like he has been hitting the bottle. Honestly, I don't think he is drunk (just had to clarify). Maybe his eyes get dry from reading teleprompters or something! Mississippi has a very segregated past, so the vote split doesn't really surprise me in this area.

Yikes, CNN exit polls show a large racial divide, 91% of blacks for Obama, while 72% whites voted Clinton. This campaign is tearing the country further apart than it already was. (Mostly thanks to the Clinton camp).
