White women (in America)

For all the talk about Barack Obama losing the white women vote to McCain, because of Sarah Palin, a new NY Times poll debunks this idea:

But the Times/CBS News poll suggested that Ms. Palin’s selection has, to date, helped Mr. McCain only among Republican base voters; there was no evidence of significantly increased support for him among women in general. White women were evenly divided between Mr. McCain and Mr. Obama; before the conventions, Mr. McCain led Mr. Obama among white women, 44 percent to 37 percent.

By contrast, at this point in the 2004 campaign, President Bush was leading Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts, the Democratic challenger, by 56 percent to 37 percent among white women.

The poll also notes that: “The percentage of Americans who disapprove of the way Mr. Bush is conducting his job, 68 percent, was as high as it has been for any sitting president in the history of New York Times polling.” – hah! But apparently, opposing Bush’s policies is anti-American prejudice.

    Sunny:

    Unless you carry on posting abroad, you are going to fall behind Gene of Harry’s Place in the race to see which blogger can suck up to Obama the most.

    There was definitely a bounce for McCain after announcing Palin as VP. However I am sure most of that has dissipated now that everyone has figured out she is a loon.

    Well, I for one would be delighted to praise McCain. In fact, I’d do it now if he wasn’t quite so dreadful quite so continuously.

    Heh. Rumbold, you’re just jealous I’m enthused by Obama, and the man you were initially supporting turned out to be such a tosspot.

    You were asking for it, Rumbold. :)

    (Have you guys read about how Palin’s yahoo account was hacked? Her secret questions to retrieve the password were: her zip code and where she met her husband. Information freely available if you know how to google. The worst part is that she conducted government business on that yahoo account, something to bypass the official channels… McCain on the other hand, is a bonafide computer illiterate – ignorance and incompetence – that’s the conservative brand these days…)
