I’ve been loathe to get into the horse race dynamics of the Democratic primary, largely bcause it’s mostly pointless. But the North Carolina primary results are worth noting.
A major component of the Democratic base, African-Americans, went 91-6 for Obama in North Carolina. As Matt Yglesias notes, in the 2006 Virginia Senate election, black voters went 85-15 for James Webb (the Democrat). That means 15% of black voters actually voted for then–Senator George “Macacawitz” Allen, a man who decorated with a Confederate flag and a noose.
