Iowa Independent: Edwards endorsement should help Obama with working white vote

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

"I would anticipate that this will help Obama's case with what has
been his weakest area lately -- working-class white voters," Dave
Redlawsk told Iowa Independent when he learned of John Edwards'
anticipated endorsement of Barack Obama. Redlawsk is both a University
of Iowa political science professor and a national delegate for
Edwards. Several sources reported Wednesday afternoon that Edwards is
expected to endorse Obama tonight at a Grand Rapids, Mich., joint
appearance. "At the same time, it probably makes no real difference at
this point in the primary campaign," Redlawsk added. "I would expect
Edwards to campaign actively for whoever was the nominee in any case."
