Senator Barack Obama (D-ILL) wins Tuesday Mississippi Primary over
Hillary Clinton (D-NY). Mississippi had 33 pledged delegates, which
will be allocated proportionally.

Obama wins with overwhelming support from African American voters.
They came out for him over Clinton 91-9 percent.

Mississippi white voters overwhelmingly back the New york Senator
71-21 percent. Mississippi along with neighboring Alabama and
Clinton's former home state Arkansas are racially Polarized states.

Obama also finished first in the Texas Democratic caucuses. That race
wasn't called until Tuesday night.

Obama will get the most delegates out of that race even though
Clinton won the primary. Two thirds of the states 193 delegates were
at stake, a third of that was decided by the caucuses......(CORNER TALK REPORT)
