"Mile High"

Narrow lead for Obama over Clinton in Colorado according to a Denver Post poll. I’d kind of figured that Obama was doomed anyplace where Latinos outnumber African-Americans but apparently not. One advantage he should have is that normally states with smaller black populations show less racially-polarized voting patterns. Thus, though Obama likely won’t see many more states where the electorate contains such a high proportion of blacks as South Carolina, it should be much easier for him to win white votes in the whiter states just as he did in Iowa and seems to be doing in Colorado.
