Criticism of Obama Not About Race, Says New Poll of White People

What's Your Reaction?

People who criticize President Obama for his health care proposals, his questionable birth certificate, and his love of socialism are not doing so out of racism, a new poll of white people indicates.

The survey, conducted by the University of Minnesota's Opinion Research Institute, measured the opinions of a large cross-section of the nation's most virulent white Obama critics and found that their views were largely free of racial basis.

A majority of those white people surveyed "strongly agreed" with the statement, "I don't have any problems with Obama being black, but I do have a problem with him being a socialist from Kenya who is trying to kill my grandmother." More here.
