Barack Obama won Wisconsin's Democratic primary yesterday by 17%--a crushing victory in a state where the Clinton camp was really hoping to stanch the bleeding.
Jay Cost of RealClearPolitics has a fascinating breakdown of the crosstabs, which suggest that Obama's victory was even bigger than it appears at first:
Clinton suffered significant loses across many of her core constituencies. White women, Democrats, union workers, downscale voters, and white Catholics all drifted to Obama last night - some so much that Obama actually won them.
If that pattern continues in Ohio and Texas--and a national poll showing Obama up 14 points suggests the momentum isn't isolated to Wisconsin--this marathon could be over real soon.
