It’s an indication that Biden is enjoying yet another strong showing in a Southern state with a large, African American base in the Democratic Party. Mississippi’s Democratic primary electorate was 71% Black in 2016, according to exit polls. Biden has won convincing victories in Alabama and South Carolina, where Black voters also make up a majority.

There are only 36 delegates in play in Mississippi, so the state is not a crucial one when it comes to the overall delegate count. But the result means another disappointing showing for Bernie Sanders among a majority African American electorate, indicating his campaign is just not cutting through in this critical part of the country.
