Re: Polls show Obama winning 80%+ Hispanic vote in Kentucky and North Carolina
I don't know about NC, but I live right by KY, and I think there are very, very, did I say very?, few Hispanics in KY.
I just looked it up. 2% in KY.
However, in NC it is at least 7%. Hispanics favoring Obama will have some significance in the NC outcome. 80% of 7% is 5.6% for Obama, vs. 1.4% for Clinton. So, the Hispanic factor will account for about 4% of Obama's margin.
Don't forget the Black population is voting Obama at rates close to 90%. This is also more significant in NC.
Kentucky - percent Hispanic = 2%.
Kentucky - percent Black = 7%
North Carolina - percent Hispanc = 7%
North Carolina - percent Black = 20%
