Obama's White Vote

"Newsweek" has an interesting article out on a
poll they did of the white voter. The article,
"Obama Faces Racial Divide", shows the split
among white voters. Yes, racism is still there.
They call their poll, "The Racial Resentment
Index Voter". It shows that those opposed to
Obama come from those with less than four years
of college, whites over 60, and live in the South.

Did we really need another poll to tell us that?
I mean we have been seeing these results in most
of the primary exit polls. Yes, there is racism,
but it is being overcome. This same poll shows
that in 2000 only 37% believed a black would ever
be president, now 70% do.
