White People Like Obama

White People Like Obama.
Maine has a population of around 1.2 million. 9500 or so are black. That is 0.7% of the population. Maine, like other states, has two senators. Both are Republican. Maine has two congressman, both are Democrat.
 
Maine Democrats have chosen Barack Obama. 57% of the votes in the Maine caucuses (meetings) went to Obama. Republicans held theirs last week and chose Mit Romney.
 
In the Democratic party, the delegates, whether chosen in caucus (meetings) or primary (voting booth) are divided proportionally and not winner take all like in the general election. In the Republican party, most states, but not all, have a winner take all delegate count.
 
There are 50 states and 50 different ways of choosing delegates. Florida and Michigan wont get to chose any delegates because held there elections in January and the Democratic party had warned them not to.
