Even though Hillary Clinton carried Brooklyn in Tuesday’s Democratic primary, our observation last week still rings true for our area. Obama won a whopping 73% of votes in Clinton Hill, according to the breakdown of Tuesday’s primary votes in today’s papers. One reason Obama didn’t carry the borough? Many young, independent-minded white voters in our area who would have voted for Obama couldn’t because they weren’t registered as Democrats. At least that’s what Brooklyn Assemblyman – and Clinton supporter – Vito Lopez told the Times.
