    MS would be Deep Blue if there was anything resembling enfranchisement in that festering sore of a state - we would only need like 30% of the white vote to win there.  Something is rotten in the state of Mississippi, and has been rotten since essentially forever.  We should take this one personally.

    •  Why? (0+ / 0-)

      The black population is younger in Mississippi, there are more white people in Mississippi, White people tend to vote more, and rightly or wrongly (I feel wrongly) Mississippi is a state that prevents convicted felons from voting and most of those in Mississippi are probably black. There are a variety of reasons to explain why Mississippi is what it is without saying that ever black person is being disenfranchised. Are many of the white voters down there motivated to vote mostly on racism, most likely, but that does not explain everything. Stop trying to make a complicated issue simple.
