Jay Cost breaks down the Democratic primary vote in Pennsylvania and reports it very similar to Ohio and if the same trends hold Hillary Clinton could win West Virgina by 40 points or more:
What we see, then, is what we have seen again and again in this contest. Clinton continues to do well with "downscale" whites. Obama does well with "upscale" whites and African Americans. What is intriguing about this result is not just that it is similar to Ohio - but also that it is similar after seven weeks and millions of dollars in campaign expenditures. Clearly, these voting groups are entrenched.
Obama's political architect David Axelrod isn't wilding out over it. He says Democrats never win "downscale" whites in the general so they shouldn't worry about it.
