- Program Description
Twenty-four states held presidential primaries or caucuses on Feb. 5, Super Tuesday. Similar to the early primaries and caucuses that split Democratic support for Senator Barack Obama in Iowa and South Carolina and for Senator Hillary Clinton in Nevada and New Hampshire, Super Tuesday showed both candidates still running neck and neck.
Overall, however, black voters painted a different picture in terms of their broader support for Obama.
In this episode of Basic Black, Wilbur Rich, professor of political science at Wellesley College, and David Bositis, political analyst for the Joint Center for Poltical and Economic Studies in Washington, D.C., join host Kim McLarin in analyzing the results from Super Tuesday.
