wright5.jpgWhat was more impressive about yesterday’s primary, the fact that Rev. Wright was on so many voters minds or that Obama managed to largely overcome all the negative feelings about his former pastor. In North Carolina and Indiana, almost half of Democratic voters said the Wright situation was important. Those voters broke for Clinton 57 to 41 in North Carolina and 72 to 27 in Indiana. Just imagine how much more lopsided those figures would have been had Obama not denounced Wright last week. Even with Wright at the fore of voters’ minds, Obama still managed to win big in North Carolina and lose small in Indiana.
