Michigan Primary: The Dems

color>...

** Exit polls show backlash against Hillary Clinton among black voters... Almost 70% of black voters in the Dem sample chose uncommitted and only 25% chose Clinton. (She's leading overall -- beating uncommitted by, like, 40 points)... Remember: Michigan's Dem primary doesn't matter b/c Clinton's name is the only one on the ballot and there are no delegates, but one can read these numbers as a sign of trouble for her among black voters.

**Fox News asks Dems who'd they vote for if Clinton was on the ballot: Clinton got 48%, Obama got 34%, Edwards got 15%.

**Russert hints that race questions will be asked tonight....
