When I Said Obama Supporters, I didn't mean the AP, but...

Seems like just yesterday I that I said race won't be the reason Obama loses Ohio, but "that won't stop the Obama supporters from making their allegations anyway." Oh wait, that was just couple hours ago!

Even so, at the time I wasn't thinking of the Associated Press , but of course they have a poll that suggests "Deep-seated racial misgivings could cost Barack Obama the White House"
"There are a lot fewer bigots than there were 50 years ago, but that doesn't mean there's only a few bigots," said Stanford political scientist Paul Sniderman who helped analyze the exhaustive survey.
So just how much of an impact could this have on the election?
Statistical models derived from the poll suggest that Obama's support would be as much as 6 percentage points higher if there were no white racial prejudice.
Hmmm, the most recent Ohio Newspaper Poll reported McCain's lead in Ohio to be 6%. But this is a national study, surely Ohio has nothing to do with it. The AP certainly wouldn't attempt to insinuate anything about Ohioans, would they?
"We still don't like black people," said John Clouse, 57, reflecting the sentiments of his pals gathered at a coffee shop in Somerset, Ohio.
Look for this to continue over the next two months. Ohio, a bunch of rednecks and yahoos who are the epitome of what's wrong w/ the country.
