So one political conversation makes you want to quit your job? Its pretty simple to diffuse, but you took the bait. Next time someone wants to talk politics with you at work just tell them out right. I'd prefer not to discuss politics at the workplace. period end of story.
Shut them down before it starts. Not voting for Obama doesn't make anyone a racist. Its a personal decision. Some people enjoy political banter at work, just let them know your not one of them.

Safest bet is never to discuss two things outside of your own home-politics and religion. People lose their heads and their manners.
I’m hoping that this all quiets down after the elections. I normally liked the guy until recently with all his political talk and he has dragged others into the mess. It’s hurting the workplace.
I just have to be patient, but if this keeps up, I’m outta there and will let the management know exactly why I left.
I just don’t need this aggravation. I’m retired and am supposed to be enjoying life.
But I love to discuss those topics.
That's how I learn, by listening to others point of views. In a non confrontational manner of course.
I get a lot of free beer that way too.
His reply was that I wasn’t voting for Obama is because he is black.

One of the guys asked me if I was voting for Obama, to which I replied, “Nope, I’m writing it in this time.”
His reply was typical, “And that’s why this Country is in the shape it’s in, because of you Republicans.”
Huh? Where did that come from?
