    As I've said many times .. if Obama loses it won't be because of race.

    Level of White Support for Obama a Surprise

    If Tuesday’s election were confined to white America, polls show, Senator Barack Obama would lose.

    And yet Mr. Obama’s strength across racial lines lies at the heart of his lead in the polls over Senator John McCain heading into Election Day. Remarkably, Mr. Obama, the first black major party presidential nominee, trails among whites by less than Democratic nominees normally do.

    America’s political parties grew decisively polarized by race after 1964, the year President Lyndon Johnson signed civil rights legislation that his Republican presidential opponent, Barry Goldwater, opposed. Since then, election pollsters estimate, Democratic nominees have averaged 39 percent of the white vote. In last week’s New York Times/CBS News poll, Mr. Obama drew 44 percent support among whites — a higher proportion than Bill Clinton captured in his general election victories.

    Analysts ascribe that success to changing racial attitudes, Mr. Obama’s deftness, Republican missteps and the economic crisis. Whatever the cause, when combined with his two-to-one edge among Hispanics and his 10-to-1 edge among blacks, it has given him a national election-eve lead.

    There's only one poll that counts, brother. You're relying on Democrats, historically the party of racists who found a new tactic appeasing the black man to keep him in his place, that and other policies that rely on lies for success, to tell the truth to a pollster. :badgrin:

    The "anti-White" parts of America?

    You mean like Maine which is 98.5% White and which will likely return two Republican Senators while voting for Obama?

    Kid, you are delusional if you think that the Whites voting for Obama hate their race.

    What we hate is the working-class-hating neo-cons that people like you seem to support, and who have and who want to continue destroying our nation one stupid, classist policy or law at a time.

    The Republicans will have nobody to blame for the Obama win, but themselves.

    Bush II's administration is a history of one dismal failure after another for the American people.

    Since the Rs were in charge, that party is going to be punished for its failings and they're going to be blamed for the fundamental problems that they are only partially responsible for, too.

    That's not entirely fair, I'll admit, because the true causes of this economy are not entirely the Republicans doing, but that's just politics, lad.

    For the next four years it's going to be the Democrats who the American people are going to hold responsible for what happens.

    If or when the American people decide that the Dems haven't done enough to correct these problems, then the Republicans will have another shot at taking back the White House.

    You got about 33 hours left to use that worn-out schtick brother.

    Black people are intelligent enough to know who stands for their interests .. as they did when they were all republicans.

    :lol:

    just to jump in, i think you might have misread. he said ant-America parts of America (a riff on Palin's comments), not anti-white.

    I, personally, think one of the reasons is that mccain intentionally stayed low-key on the race issue, at least until the end of the campaign, and notwithstanding the efforts of his minions and sarah, so that people were forced to look at issues, as opposed to color. or, maybe people like the idea of showing that america is finally putting its past to bed.

    Yeah, real intelligent, up to 90% of kids born without fathers in inner cities, scarfing up crumbs from their Democrat masters in return for votes. :badgrin:
