Obama Set To Trounce In Mississippi

By  | 

From TPM:

The American Research Group poll puts Obama way at 58% support, against Hillary Clinton’s 34%. Granted, ARG’s record for primaries this cycle has been spotty. Nevertheless, it would be pretty hard to get it totally wrong on a margin this big.

A big win next Tuesday could wipe out any delegate gain Hillary got this last Tuesday, but he would most likely have to cross the 60% threshold for that to happen.

Something that could make that happen is a radio ad he’s running there that uses these words against her…

“I was shocked when I learned Iowa and Mississippi have never elected a woman governor, senator, or member of Congress,” Clinton was quoted as saying in October by The Des Moines Register. “How can Iowa be ranked with Mississippi? That’s not the quality, that’s not the communitarianism, that’s not the openness I see in Iowa.”

Could it work?

What Mississippi helps him do at this point is get a big win and push the % she needs to win higher than the 55% (or thereabouts) of the remaining delegates.

We shall see…
