Your average Democratic Primary voters in SC are not white Southerners anyway. That gets at the heart of the difference between Obama's campaign and this: Obama successfully got white liberals, the young, and blacks together as a winning coalition, but Sanders lacks one of those groups.

Can anyone explain to me why Sanders is repeatedly at around 25% in GA, but only at around 10% in SC ?

The Dem. primary electorate should be roughly the same in both states, no ? 60% minorities and 40% Whites. So, why the big difference between the two states ?

Lot more liberal whites in the Atlanta area than in any of South Carolina.

Also GA is home to many higher-income, highly-educated blacks.
