  •  How does the poll account for 13% Hispanic (0+ / 0-)
    and 13% Black presidential voters? Is that what's predicted for November?
    •  I noticed that too (1+ / 0-)

      The 13% African American seems to be quite reasonable (11% in 2004, so 18% increase in a year likes this seems pretty doable)

      But the 13% Hispanic number strikes me as being too high -- based on the last election (8%) that would be a huge increase... I could see it rising to 10%,  maybe even 11%, but 13% seems very unrealistic to me. (Not that I would love to see it)

      Once social change begins,it cannot be reversed. You cannot uneducate the person who has learned to read...You cannot oppress people who are not afraid anymore.
