Southern Fried Obama

Obama’s biggest push in the South will be in Georgia, as I write today, North Carolina and Virginia. It’s interesting because according to the Joint Center — a non-partisan group that tracks black voters — his best shots are the states where Kerry won more than a quarter of the white vote and therefore the base starts out already more diversified: Louisiana, Arkansas, North Carolina. There was a recent big Dem push to register votes in Louisiana, but the fact that it doesn’t make Obama’s front line of Southern states makes me think it is trending more Red which doesn’t bode well for Mary Landrieu.
