Kentucky has become the latest in a growing number of states where Democratic voters have chosen not to vote for President Obama in primary elections.
More than 40 percent of Democratic voters who went to the polls yesterday selected someone other than Mr. Obama.
Kentucky’s primary results have mirrored that of other southern, conservative states like Arkansas and West Virginia. In both of those states, other candidates have attracted a significant amount of the primary votes away from Mr. Obama. But in Kentucky, there was no other candidate on the ballot, and voters instead chose “uncommitted.”
