South Carolina : Signs to Look For
According to the South Carolina newspaper, The State, here are some demographic indicators of how the candidates will do. In addition to turnout, which is expected to be high, particularly since it's good weather today, the paper lists:
- African-American: "Big turnouts in counties like Richland, Charleston and Orangeburg counties could indicate strong support for Obama."
- Women: "Reports of heavy turnout in Greenville or Horry counties could indicate hope for Clinton."
- Youth vote: "Heavy turnout in wards adjacent to Clemson University, USC and Benedict College could point toward votes for Obama."
- Independents: Watch the exit polling. A high turnout of Independents is expected to help Obama and the Democrats.
