I think that race will certainly play a huge roll in this election...in Obama's favor. There may be a few people who will vote for McCain "because he's white," but I am sure these numbers will be insignificant compared to the multitudes who will vote for Obama "because he's black." If race makes a difference at all in this election (and I think it will), it will be overwhelmingly in favor of the Dem party. I'm not saying there won't be people voting for Obama because of his policies, or his proposed plans, but among those who do base their vote solely on the colour of the candidate's skin, the vast majority will vote for Obama. I am certain the race issue will help him far more than it will hurt.
"Mongrels"? Now that is racist.Obama has a two factor lead over McCain in electoral counts , if he should not become president by election day then this means that people have been giving dishonest answers on the polls , perhaps due to conscience , after all the election day is the one that counts. Should this huge discrepancy be the case the world image of the US as a stunted nation is going to be established especially in Europe where they already perceive us as a bunch of infantile mongrels...
