Skip to comments.Poll: White Democrats’ Racism Could Cost Obama White House
Posted on 09/20/2008 9:25:05 AM PDT by AmericanMade1776
A new AP-Yahoo News poll finds that white Democrats resistance to voting for a black man for President could cost Democratic Presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama the White House: Deep-seated racial misgivings could cost Barack Obama the White House if the election is close, according to an AP-Yahoo News poll that found one-third of white Democrats harbor negative views toward blacks many calling them lazy, violent or responsible for their own troubles. The poll, conducted with Stanford University, suggests that the percentage of voters who may turn away from Obama because of his race could easily be larger than the final difference between the candidates in 2004 about two and one-half percentage points.

Hey Donald Trump, Obama is calling you a racist because you are endorsing McCain.
The President of the United States is NOT an Affirmative Action position.
Pray for W, McCuda and Our Troops
Well Obviously racism is on all sides, and I think Obama is playing the "RACE CARD" to make voters feel guilty if they do not vote for him, even if they think he is not qualified to be President, has no experience and is way too liberal for their views.
If Obama wins it will be because of racism.
I do believe you hit the nail on the head, counterpunch.
that makes far more sense than blaming racists after they lose.
let’s hope Rush is listening.
How about a poll: Do you Favor Socialism or Capitalism for the United States?
Wasn't Geraldine Ferraro called racist for making similar comments.
A) He's Black
B) He the most Liberal Sinator
C) Judgment — i.e. Rev. Wrong
“B” & “C” are reasons for me to be against NObama!
Of course, the Media will say it is Door “A” is the reason. That we're all RACIST if Boy Wonder loses!
What can I say? Orwell lives.
People should check this out!!!! This group is the one that protested OREObama, their term.
....That is Ludicrous and an Racist Poll, ..
Racist yes, ludicrous no. Where I live, there are more than just a few Dems who have stated that they will not vote for a black man. Just sayin.
So apparently, given that 95% of African American’s are voting against Senator McCain, there are more black bigots, percentage wise, than white bigots.
I was thinking the same thing. That sort of voter would have voted for Hillary! though, because it would have meant getting Bubba back in the WH.
At least, we are spared that...maybe.
When all is said and done more blacks percentage wise will vote for Obama than Whites vote for McClain and you can bet on it.I am white and if a Conservative black ran for President I would vote for him or her.
“Obama will lose not because he is almost black, but because he is too liberal, too egotistical, too elistist, lacks experience, is a baby killer, has shady connections, and sat in the pew of a Church that preached Hate toward Whites and Hate toward America for 20 years.”
You are too kind to the Senator. “Too liberal”? In plain language he is a communist, with terrorist friends.
Not to mention Ken Blackwell!
I could name five or ten black people I could vote for for president with a smile on my face, off the top of my head; Barrack Oinkbama simply isn’t one of them.
I will accept the possible short term consequences (rioting)over the certain long term consequences (a quantum leap deeper into proto-communism).
You’re just bitter.
I bet you still cling to guns and religion.
