"Uncommitted" and the Exit Polls

Michigan exit polls are just beginning to trickle out, so there are a lot of reasons to take this Fox News report with a grain of salt. But it does contain one potentially meaningful tidbit. Among African-Americans, Hillary won an estimated 25 percent of the vote. Uncommitted: 69 percent.

Hillary will of course end up taking the cake. But it's not quite as tasty when you slice it like that. Going into Nevada and especially South Carolina, the fact that the majority of blacks preferred "Uncommitted" if that turns out to be the case in the final tally doesn't bode well.
