It’s nice to see that the Associated Press…

…finally caught up with the post I made two days ago about the fact that the racism Barack Obama needs to worry about isn’t Republican.

From the AP story:

The findings suggest that Obama’s problem is close to home – among his fellow Democrats, buy cialis generic particularly non-Hispanic white voters. Just seven in 10 people who call themselves Democrats support Obama, ailment compared to the 85 percent of self-identified Republicans who back McCain.

The survey also focused on the racial attitudes of independent voters because they are likely to decide the election.

Lots of Republicans harbor prejudices, cialis too, but the survey found they weren’t voting against Obama because of his race. Most Republicans wouldn’t vote for any Democrat for president – white, black or brown.

From my post:

The 48% or so who vote Republican would vote for John McCain regardless of who the Democratic nominee was.

(That’s not to say that there are no racist Republicans. My point is that any Republican racism is irrelevant in this case because Republicans were going to vote for “their” guy whether the Democrat’s nominated Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, or Joe Biden.)

The problem lies with Democrats (and to some extent Independents).

The numbers say that if Barack Obama loses, it will only be because members of his own party didn’t vote for him.

So if Barack Obama loses, and you’re a Democrat who thinks the reason he lost was racism, you’re going to have to take a good hard look at your own party.
