Remember all that craziness about how Obama wasn’t “black enough” to win black voters’ support? Well, a couple of weeks later: not so much. The washingtonpost has this story on a poll release showing that more black voters now support Obama in a head to head match up against the wife of the fake black president. Here is a snippet:
Clinton’s and Obama’s support among white voters changed little since December, but the shifts among black Democrats were dramatic. In December and January Post-ABC News polls, Clinton led Obama among African Americans by 60 percent to 20 percent. In the new poll, Obama held a narrow advantage among blacks, 44 percent to 33 percent. The shift came despite four in five blacks having a favorable impression of the New York senator.
We still have ten months before the first primary votes are cast. Unless Obama makes a rookie mistake or Al Gore decide to get into the race, this is Barack’s race to lose.
