  •  There was three candidates in Iowa (0+ / 0-)

    Obama won Iowa with 38% of the vote.

    Clinton won New Hampshire 39.1 to 36.5 and there were three candidates in that one too.

    THat is not proof that Obama was getting the coalition he needed to win a General Election at that point.  It was very much up and the air.

    •  But regardless, it couldn't have been propelled.. (0+ / 0-)

      ....by the coalition you suggested, certainly not in Iowa.  Intellectuals make up what, far less than 5% of the US population.  And blacks far less in those two states.  So what gives? That description of Obama's coalition was factually erroneous at that point.
