  •  One quick question Before I sleep (0+ / 0-)

    How many states did Barack Obama win that will actually go Democratic come November? Winning states like Utah and Whyoming and Mississippi in a primary is good, but will they still go Republican when the General Election comes along.

      from Kerry's 2004 results, plus holds of every state Kerry won. In the primaries, Obama has won: Missouri, Nevada, Colorado, Virginia, and Iowa. These are states he can pick up from the GOP's 2004 results.

      So while Obama isn't going to win MS or UT in the fall, his presence on the ticket will open up the electoral map considerably across the country -- and give support to down-ticket candidates in places like MS.
