and it may cause Obama the race. Or so says a poll done by Stanford using some sort of mathematical something or other. Though I am no scientist (nor do I play one on TV and I didn't stay at a Holiday Inn Express recently), the whole thing felt a bit self serving and hokey. For instance:
Lots of Republicans harbor prejudices, too, but the survey found they weren't voting against Obama because of his race. Most Republicans wouldn't vote for any Democrat for president — white, black or brown.
We do harbor prejudices - mainly against democrats of any color. That wasn't what these brilliant statisticians were driving at, however. They want us to be racists. The facts are what they are, and if any party can stand up and say "I don't care what color you are, so long as you can do the job", its the Republicans. In fact, Colin Powell could have waltzed into the White House at one time. He would need to take 3 big steps to the right at this point if he had such aspirations, but if he was willing to do so, he would be a shoe it. Condi Rice is another one - she has disapointed many of us and as with Powell, she would need to re-evaluate her stands, most espeically her want to appease in the Middle East. If she does an about face here, she would have an incredible shot at being POTUS. The difference in Powell and Rice over Obama is Rice and Powell have actually acomplished much in their lives.
The point of this study is to say Dems are racists as well and that is why Obama may lose this race. It really has nothing to do with Obama being a moron. Need proof? Well let's ask Mr. Clouse:
"We still don't like black people," said John Clouse.
