18. Black Voters in Idaho
Obama won Idaho by 80% where I live, and I can confirm that he got the black vote here. I talked to the both of them here in Boise, and they said they both were for him. :)

But nonetheless, independents in Idaho are more likely to vote Obama because they like him. I think McCain will win here, but an Obama at the top of the ticket will give Idaho more seats in the State legislature and our county seats. While Idaho as a whole is Republican, Ada County, the largest country containing Boise and Meridian, is now Democrat. Obama is BIG in Idaho, and most the Democrats and independents want him here. Even many Republicans are here for him.
