If anybody else besides Obama, a black man was running, they would be wiping the floor with mccain. After eight years of the last republican nut and now this diaper wearing gramps with his invisible side kick, the simple fact is that there is a certain percentage of people who will never vote for a black man. Now there is another group, that up until a couple of years ago would also have never voted for a black man, but who now when looking at the alternative, their redneck (though these rednecks are white, brown, yellow etc) self preservation genes see that Obama is the only sane choice. I am not saying that everybody who is voting for mccain belongs to one of these two groups, but these groups are the reason why the numbers are the way they are.So while these polls are all very interesting, the real question is, how big are these two populations?. The only thing that the polls tell me is that the former is obviously big enough that as a country we a fucked. The only consolation is that the country at least has a black man on one of the tickets. While this is only a slight consolation, it is a step in the right direction.It may not be in our times, but someday.
