Review of Wyoming; Preview of Mississippi -- Obama Strongholds

    Given the demographics of the Democratic race, by now one can predict with some accuracy the outcome of most contests. If there's a high percentage of African-Americans in the electorate and/or a large percentage of upper-income voters, Barack Obama does well. If there is a high percentage of Latino voters and/or a large percentage of working class voters, Hillary Clinton does well. Virtually all caucuses go to Obama handily, most likely because the Clinton campaign negligently failed to prepare in these states.
    Given these trends, Obama's landslide win in the Wyoming caucuses over the weekend was no surprise and it would be a shock if he did anything but win handily on Tuesday in Mississippi.
