Here’s an interesting report from the Associated Press on the current mood among white supremacist groups regarding a potential Barack Obama victory in November.
He’d be a “visual aid,” says former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, in trying to bring others around to their view that whites have lost control of America. Obama’s election, says another, would jar whites into action, writing letters, handing out pamphlets rather than sitting around complaining.
Hmm. So, does this mean that white supremacists may actually be rooting for Obama? This article may point to a possible reason for their restlessness. Meanwhile, this report notes that some political pollsters are concerned that the centrality of race in this year’s presidential election may compromise the accuracy of their data. Which may cast some doubt over a new study released this week by the Barna Research Group that finds Obama enjoying greater support among faith-driven voters, including Christians (though not evangelicals), than John McCain.
