Barack Obama: 10 Wins in a Row

February 20, 2008 at 9:15 am 3 comments

With wins in the Wisconsin primary and the Hawaii caucuses, Barack Obama has now won the last ten contests in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. In Wisconsin, Obama beat Clinton 58% to 41%. Obama’s recent wins make the upcoming contests in Ohio and Texas held on March 4 must wins for Hillary Clinton.

In Wisconsin Obama showed clear evidence that he is making inroads into groups considered Clinton’s base. According to CNN, Obama captured 58% of the white votes, 48% of the female vote and 50% of the votes of non-college graduates.

He also seems to be taking the economy away from Clinton as an issue. He won 44 percent of those voters who said that was the most important issue for them on Super Tuesday, but he won 55 percent of those voters on Tuesday.

Heading into Wisconsin, most thought the contest was a toss-up. Obama’s sweeping win there Tuesday can’t be encouraging for the Clinton camp heading into Ohio as there are a lot of similarities between the blue-collar, Rust Belt states.

If the demographic trends continue, it doesn’t look good in Texas. Obama won the Latino vote in Maryland and Virginia last week, a segment of the electorate that was solidly in the Clinton camp at the beginning of the race.

Polls are showing the race neck and neck in Texas.

    Barack Obama is ready to roll son.

    Or, as I said to one of my professors, if Obama wins or ties Texas, it is over for Clinton and she’ll just be delaying the inevitable after that.

    But Clinton is not going to give up. Her campaign has pledged to fight all the way to the convention.
