Following up on Logan's item from last night, Obama clearly cruised to an easy win in Mississippi, but the exit polls have some interesting numbers on how he won.
* Gender: Obama won 61% of men and 58% of women. That’s going to lead to a pretty good day.
* Race: It’s fair to say this was an important factor in Mississippi. 91% of African-American voters backed Obama, while 72% of white voters backed Clinton.
* Age: There continues to be a striking age gap between the candidates. Despite Obama’s landslide win, Clinton still won a majority of voters 60 and older.
* Income: Obama won every income group except those making more than $75,000, who preferred Clinton.
* Honesty: Here’s a surprising one. 70% of Mississippi voters said Obama is honest and trustworthy. Only 52% said the same about Clinton.
* Commander-in-Chief test: Voters preferred Obama to Clinton by 10 points on this question, 53% to 43%.
* Republicans: Is Rush Limbaugh’s strategy catching on? 13% of voters in the Democratic primary identified themselves as Republicans, and they overwhelmingly backed Clinton over Obama, 78% to 22%.
* VP: 6 in 10 Obama backers said that he should select Clinton for the ticket if he won the nomination, while 4 in 10 Clinton supporters said she should choose Obama if he she won.
And with that, the long slog to Pennsylvania begins — its primary is six long weeks from yesterday.
