(CNN) - Clinton's Texas win can be attributed to some of the same factors that led her to prevail in Ohio: Overwhelming support from seniors, voters worried about their financial status, and late deciders. Her big margins among these blocs were key in tilting the state to her favor.
Among 65 and over voters, she bested Obama by 37 points. On those voters worried about their financial situation, Clinton held a 13 point advantage. And among those voters who decided in the last three days, Clinton bested Obama by 23 points.
The big margins in those categories were hard for Obama to make up elsewhere.
Clinton was also buoyed by Latino voters in Texas– that group went for her over Obama by roughly 35 points, and constituted about a third of the electorate.
