From CNN's exit polls in Kentucky: 21% of Dem primary voters said the race of the candidates was important to them. Of those, 81% voted for the white lady.
And people wonder why Obama didn't campaign in Kentucky.
Of the 79% for whom race wasn't important, 68% still went for Clinton. So presumably Obama didn't campaign there because he was going to get crushed regardless.
ABC did an interesting story on this recently. Whites who consider race important go for Hillary 2-1. Blacks who consider race important go for Barack 9-1.
