AP Poll on white Dem racism
"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 â€” many calling them "lazy," "violent," responsible for their own troubles."
I may have missed a thread about this poll over the past couple of days; if so, I apologize.
Regardless of the findings of the poll, one has to ask of the pollsters, "Why is this important now?"
Quite possibly there is more to it than just to motivate or scare the Dems into more donations, volunteering, etc.
I believe that the poll was done to develop a rationale for the results of the general election, if NObama loses. What would be convenient for Dems is if they had a racism explanation for his loss, rather than a rejection of his platform as the real reason. Racism as an explanation provides the Dems with a basis for continuing "victimhood" and identity politics. A loss based on his bad policies of wealth redistribution, tax raises, etc., would be a direct attack on the entire party of Gimmiecrats which would be an uphill climb in 2012.
