2008 The Reverse Bradley Effect
posted by January 21 at 9:27 AMon
Last week, I slogged a post titled “The Reverse Bradley Effect” scoffing at a New York Times article which said the black vote was split on Obama.
Nonsense, I said. And indeed, while Hillary Clinton scored 64% of the Hispanic vote in Nevada, Obama scored 79% of the black vote. This spells big trouble for Clinton in South Carolina, where some 50 percent of Democratic primary voters are black.
Footnote: Clinton won the female vote in Nevada—about 52 to 35. I imagine both the Clinton and Obama campaigns are ringing black women’s phones off the hook this week.
