In Dixie, the past isn't even past

More on race, President Obama and Dixie, where Arkansas is now a full-fledged card-carrying member of the Solid Republican South. Overall, yes, Barack Obama got 39 percent of the white vote. But Mother Jones drills down a bit:

Overall, Obama won about 46 percent of the white vote outside the South and 27 percent of the white vote in the South. That's a difference of nearly 20 points. In other words: Democrats don't have a white problem. They have a Southern white problem, and that's a whole different thing. The press should be more careful about how they report this.
