Clinton not expected to win Ol' Miss but watch the media...

The true test to whether the media has gotten off of it's anti-Hillary bandwagon will be how the results in Mississippi are reported. No one expects her to win this state considering the state has a larger proportion African-Americans (36 percent, according to the 2000 census) than any other state in the country. And black voters make up nearly 70 percent of registered Democrats. Considering the number of black voters who have supported him in the past if Clinton gets more than 30% of the vote, I'd consider that to be a huge victory.

Now will the media report this as Clinton was "soundly defeated" in a state no one expected her to win? Or will they report it the way that it was expected?
