Fox is reporting Obama only carried 34 percent of the uneducated white vote in Indiana and only 26 percent in North Carolina.

(Keep in mind, these numbers are subject to slight changes as the night continues.)

30 percent of all Democratic primary voters in Indiana said Rev. Wright was "very important." 18 percent said "somewhat" 20 percent said Wright was "not very important"and 29 percent said "not at all."

33 percent of Democratic primary voters in North Carolina said Wright was "very important, 15 percent said "somewhat," 18 percent said "not very" and 32 percent said "not at all."

If Obama secures the  Democratic nomination, this could spell trouble in the general election. In the 2004 presidential election, white voters represented 77 percent of all voters and 58 percent of total voters had no college degree.
