The Associated Press is reporting that Obama rolled past a desperate Hillary Clinton in the Wisconsin primary tonight, gaining the upper hand in a Democratic presidential race.
It was Obama’s ninth straight victory over the past three weeks, and left the former first lady in desperate need of a comeback in a race she long commanded as front-runner. He cut deeply into Clinton’s political bedrock in Wisconsin, splitting the support of white women in Wisconsin almost evenly with the former first lady and running well among working class voters in the blue collar battleground, according to polling place interviews. The economy and trade were key issues in the race, and seven in 10 voters said international trade has resulted in lost jobs in Wisconsin. Fewer than one in five said trade has created more jobs than it has lost.
Maybe Hillary should have focused more on all the votes instead of just trying to pimp Hispanic votes in Texas. Yes, yes…I know that’s harsh, but I’m tired this evening. Forgive me.
