Despite Hillary Clinton’s “win” in the Michigan Democratic primary, exit polls in the state reveal there could be trouble ahead for Clinton in the crucial South Carolina primary.

Clinton was the only major Democratic presidential candidate to remain on the ballot in Michigan after the national party stripped the state of its delegates for holding its primary too early in the electoral season.

Voters could choose to vote for Clinton or for “uncommitted.”

Hillary got 55 percent of the votes overall. But the exit polls showed that about 70 percent of African-American voters in Michigan chose “uncommitted” in an apparent show of support for rival Barack Obama.

Asked whom they would have voted for if Obama and John Edwards had been on the ballot with Clinton, an overwhelming 73 percent of African-Americans said they would have voted for Obama, according to CNN exit polls.

That bodes poorly for Hillary in the Jan. 26 primary in South Carolina, where politico.com reports that from 50 to 60 percent of the Democratic voters will be African-American.
