Alexis Joyce Political Science Taylor May 05 2008 The North Carolina Primary The North Carolina primary was a vital primary since the results from this primary would either support Hilary or shatter Hilary’s attempts toward the race for presidency. In this election between Hilary and Obama, some of the super delegates were undecided as to who they were going to nominate for the democratic ticket, so as a last effort in winning the super delegates’ nomination, Hilary made the argument that Obama lacked power amongst the white-working class. Hilary’s accusation proved to be true as she won both Pennsylvania and Indiana, but her case made a turn for the negative as Obama won North Carolina, proving Hilary’s argument to being somewhat defective, since North Carolina contains the demographics that she had hoped to target. In North Carolina Obama won 56 % of the vote with Hilary behind her opponent earning 42 % of the vote.
