Race is a factor but its convenient for the rightwinger to pull out the "race card argument" knowing full well this is a factor. Atleast 20% of
americans are voting in this election over race and this is why McCain and Obama are always roughly tied. The rightwingers wont admit it because it is
a convenient factor for them.
Does Obama still have a chance? Ofcourse he does, but if he is to win, it will probably be by 2-4 percentage points. I think there are enough voter
that have moved on from "race" in this election to give Obama a good enough chance, but anybody who denies that race is a factor is either in denial
(just like they are with global warming and the current financial crises) or they simply choose not to admit it knowing it to be true. Race does place
in McCains favour, no doubt about it, but it certainly wont necessarily get him the whitehouse. Only time will tell though.
On another note Im not afraid to admit that there are some Obama supporters that use race as an excuse every time
however its a minority and
this is often exaggerated by rightwingers when this obvious race issue comes up.
And by the way Fathom why are you refering us to another thread when you seem to repeat these smear threads around this forum? Is it because its left
I suggest that inorder to avoid hypocrisy, you do the same next time you post a thread.
