2004 result: Bush 66%, Kerry 33%

African American percentage: 4.4% (national average is 12.8%)

Big leads for McCain; he seems certain to win the statewide vote. I don't know if anyone has polled by congressional district. Nebraska's electoral votes have never been split, even though, as noted above, their election law allows for that.
