    From Salon.com

    A GOP operative argues that in a race between a white and black candidate, "undecideds" vote white. Meaning, "undecideds" will break for McCain.

    2004 Bush States where Obama is +50%:

    Iowa
    New Mexico
    Virginia
    Colorado
    Ohio - 49.9% w/ 6% undecided but that would be an awful lot of racism to assume ...


    And he's ahead in several more:

    Florida
    Indiana
    Nevada
    North Carolina
    Missouri


    I know it's irrelevant to the outcome of the election but Obama has also pulled above 50% nationally ...

    I wonder how the majority of these undecided white voters feel knowing that the GOP is counting on their racism to win this election? Do you think it could push them in the opposite direction? I do.

    How would it be a freudian slip, exactly? Nate Silver thinks Lynn Swann actually was white, but was going to claim he was black?

    Its a typo...they've been appearing with increasing frequency on the site. Probably because he is busting his ass to write stuff really quickly.
