45% is probably as good as Obama can do.

Because of the gay ad. It has scared Conservatives in MS to death ...

Nah.  Wicker had one of the best debate performances I've witnessed this year in their recent debate.  Also, Wicker is running radio ads in the black community lambasting Musgrove for not being able to mention that he supports *Barack Obama*.  Intelligent advertising, imho.

The crosstabs quite accurately note that Wicker is getting 12% of blacks, while McCain is getting 1%

According to this poll - 15%.  82% support McCain.  3% are undecided/other, i.e. support McCain.

It's all about getting 12% of blacks, as opposed to 1%.  McCain runs 3%-4% ahead of Wicker among whites.

Wicker 48.78
Musgrove 46.67

                    White    Black
Wicker          73.58    2.24
Musgrove     21.09    96.54

10/27/08
Wicker 54.11
Musgrove 42.51

                     White    Black
Wicker          77.97    11.85
Musgrove     17.51     87.04
