Kentucky Demographics and Voter Stats
Kentucky demographics favor Hillary Clinton.
Obama has a slight chance in Louisville, an urban area, but very little elsewhere in the state.
Trade with China is important to KY since its farmers grow tobacco for China and sell them a lot of Maker's Mark and Wild Turkey bourbon. About $300 million a year's worth.
Kentucky, like other states, will set a record for voting tomorrow, but new registratons are lower there than we've ssen in other states.
A record 2.8 million Kentuckians are registered to vote in the primary election. Of those, 1.6 million are Democrats. And, despite the close presidential primary, the number of new registered voters hasn't skyrocketed. In the past six months, 16,000 people have registered, 13,000 of them as Democrats.
A map of Kentucky is below the fold.
