RESPONSE TO A COLUMN BY GERARD BAKER IN THE TIMES
Gerard Baker misses much of the point, as usual.
Only about one-third of Mississippi is black.
If it is true, as Baker asserts, that one-half the voters were black, this is a tremendous blow for Obama.
It shows pulling power in the crucial South.
It shows that the "special Clinton appeal to blacks" was so much hot air.
And, please, no one is "supposed" to win any state until the vote is in.
A 60-40 split in American politics is regarded as a landslide.
