    But why do you think that only 4% oppose Obama on purely racist grounds? What if the "principle" that the 37% who consistently oppose Obama is racism? After all, I'm sure that over 95% of that 37% are White Americans, a group that has a terrible track record on race relations...

    I am not now, nor have I ever been, a member of the Republican Party.

      those who stuck with W would be against any Democrat, regardless of race (see impeachment, Clinton). That some of them are also racists is not under dispute.

      Oklahoma: birthplace of Kate Barnard, W. Rogers, W. Guthrie, Bill Moyers & Eliz. Warren. Home to proud progressive agitators since before statehood. Current political climate a mere passing dust cloud; we're waiting it out & planning for clearer days.
