5 things to watch in every state: Mississippi

There are not 5 elections worth watching in this state.  The only thing that I’m looking forward to watching in this state is to see how Hillary Clinton is able to do in the state. In 2012, Mitt Romney won the state with 55% of the vote defeating Obama by 11.5 points.  In 2008, a year where Obama did better nationally, he was only able to get 43% of the vote.  I think it’s possible that Clinton is able to improve on Obama’s measure of 43.79% of the vote in 2012.  Clinton might be able to break 44% of the vote on November 8th.  That is probably the most important thing to watch in the state.
