The Democratic Race
by

Barack Obama did some of the things he needed to yesterday. In addition to mainting a high level of black support in places like Georgia, he reproduced his Iowa-like support among white voters in states like Minnesota and North Dakota. In his home state of Illinois, early exit polls even had him ahead among Hispanics. Obama kept the race much closer than either Mitt Romney or Mike Huckabee managed to do on the Republican side.

That said, he probably fell short of really blowing the race open. His loss in Massachusetts stung, though Hillary’s ground game was superior. His defeat in California is probably a serious problem. Obama is helped by the lack of winner-take-all contests. But Hillary probably had enough of a cushion to endure a late Obama surge. That cushion is coming in handy right about now.
