Yes, 34% said so the last time you ran a poll asking if race would affect your vote?
I'm not saying that all 34% were against Obama because of race. The people voting for him just because of race are just as bad.
I would encourage everyone to go to both candidates web sites and see what their views are on the issues that affect you personally and vote accordingly.
Yes.. Go ask anyone over the age of 70 who their supporting, esp. if their undecided... Race will play a big role.
It is our right aa americans to vote for whomever we want based on whatever we want. I am not saying that voting based on race alone is necessarily logical, but it is our right, so take your apologetic cracker comments and leave a post with the view or any other network website. You people make me sick.
First off.. I think the question" Have people told you they will not vote for Obama because of his race? is a bad, biased,and racist question.
Yes people have told me that! They have also told me that they are voting for him becuase of his race! They have also told me that they are not voting for mcCain because of his race. We know that there are racist people "blacks and whites" in the world. There is no need to cater and give the poles credibility becuase of them.
If I see one more "Another Democrat for Mccain" sign I think I'll puke. Either they're lying about having been a Democrat or they are racist. Might as well have a burning cross in your front yard.
You clowns vote against my posts and then I read the one above. Sweet.
Your parents must be proud.
Of course some people won't vote for Obama because of race. My Mother in Law said she won't for that reason. Some are embarrassed to admit it. There are some who won't vote McCain because of his age too.
how many people are voting for obama because of race? if you are basing your decision solely on their race either for or against it is still racism, and thats ok to some extent. you all need to get over it.
90% of black are going to vote for a democrat anyhow, unless your Hilary Clinton then 95% of black people going to vote for the black man who is democrat instead of her.
Grump, nobody's "scared" of Obama. Disgusted by him, maybe, but not scared. You, as much as anyone else on here, rant and rail against unionism and corruption. Now, look at Obama's background - CHICAGO!! That's where he learned what (little) he knows about politics. He's got the most liberal, left-wing voting record of anybody in the Senate today. Plus, he's got no experience. Yeah, yeah, Sarah Palin doesn't have any, either, but *NEWS FLASH* she's not running for President!! She's the Vice-Presidential candidate. The Veep doesn't get to make the big decisions.
What "scares" me is how the media is treating Obama like their own fair-haired boy, and not asking any embarassing questions of him. If they gave Obama half as hard a time as they've given GWBush (and I'm not defending him) Obama's whole song and dance show would fall apart. I thought that maybe when the media was exposed actually making up lies to smear GWBush with - remember, when Dan Rather was fired?? - they'd tone it down some, but they're right back at it as if nobody remembers.
The reason most people will not vote for Obama is because he is a far-left liberal, racist, anti-American, anti-Capitalist, anti-Semite, socialist, Communist and Muslim/terrorist sympathizer ... not because of the color of his skin.
I know blacks and whites that are not voting for Obama because of his race. I decided to stay undecided until after the debates because I would like to make a decision based on what I feel will be best for our great country. I think it is absurd to cast a vote based only on a persons sex, race, age, etc..... I am curious redstate girl, do you have any information to support the above statements?
My husband and I lived in Bali, Indonesia several years ago. A hotel manager there said he would never hire a short person to work as a desk clerk. The reason: guests approaching the counter would not be able to see a short person! Also, tall people (in his mind) were better at solving problems!
The point of this story is similar to electing a political candidate for a reason having nothing to do with skill or job management. What does the political party represent? How will this elected person choose individuals to get the jobs done? No candidate can fulfill campaign promises unilaterally. So please be a thinker in your choice when voting!
