RE: WHITE PEOPLE, UNIVERSALITY OF
According to the latest Quinnipiac poll, yes, it's true -- Obama loses the white vote to McCain. (We're doomed! We're doomed!) But wait -- Clinton loses the white vote to McCain, too. In fact, among whites, it's:
McCain 48%, Clinton 41%
McCain 47%, Obama 40%
But, astonishingly, both Obama and Clinton beat McCain overall -- because guess what? It turns out America isn't an all-white country! Yeah, I know -- who knew?
Either one of the two Democratic contenders, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama or New York Sen. Hillary Clinton, leads the likely Republican presidential nominee, Arizona Sen. John McCain, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today. Sen. Obama leads Sen. McCain 47 - 40 percent while Sen. Clinton is up 46 - 41 percent.
