But democrats and independents are also racist, according to the poll. They just don't express it like the republicans do. Obama has handled the discrimination with so much grace. I'm sure he knew it would be his burden to bear as the first black president. He's also been pre-occupied with the slew of problems he inherited. If Mitt wins, he'll have the advantage of being the white guy. From the poll:
Overall, the survey found that by virtue of racial prejudice, Obama could lose 5 percentage points off his share of the popular vote in his Nov. 6 contest against Republican challenger Mitt Romney. However, Obama also stands to benefit from a 3 percentage point gain due to pro-black sentiment, researchers said. Overall, that means an estimated net loss of 2 percentage points due to anti-black attitudes.
The poll finds that racial prejudice is not limited to one group of partisans. Although Republicans were more likely than Democrats to express racial prejudice in the questions measuring explicit racism (79 percent among Republicans compared with 32 percent among Democrats), the implicit test found little difference between the two parties. That test showed a majority of both Democrats and Republicans held anti-black feelings (55 percent of Democrats and 64 percent of Republicans), as did about half of political independents (49 percent).

Despite this, Romney said, Obama failed to fix the economy, to buttress Medicare and Social Security, to reduce spending and borrowing, to work in a bipartisan manner or to deal with global threats.
“What he inherited wasn't the only problem; what he did with what he inherited made the problem worse,” Romney said.
Ironically, Romney spoke at a firm that benefitted from Obama’s actions. Kinzler received nearly $700,000 in stimulus funds, as first noted by the Center for American Progress. Romney has previously held events at places that benefited from the economic stimulus, such as Otterbein University in Ohio and Watson Truck & Supply in New Mexico. La Times
Romney will do what it takes to win, including enhancing photos to make his crowds look bigger. See the photo posted by the campaign at Buzzfeed.
Here's another photo that shows the Romney camp even spelled his name wrong.
This map shows how Mitt can win without Ohio — 270 electoral votes to win. It's a long shot, but very possible. He could win the popular vote, though, but that would mean he'd still be the loser. Anyway, the point is, vote no matter where you are. If you're in a blue state, vote so Mitt doesn't win the popular vote. If he wins the pop vote, it will just be more republican bellyaching. We need a clean Obama sweep.
Here is how Obama wins without Ohio, where he's ahead, but Iowa, Colo, New Hampshire and Virginia are tie right now:
In addition to being a BSer and someone who will say what he thinks he needs to say, this also lets us know that Mitt reads severe conservative news.
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney falsely claimed Thursday night that Chrysler Group may move all Jeep vehicle production to China, drawing criticism from the Obama campaign, which said the Michigan native had blatantly skewed a news wire story.Chrysler's response:
Romney’s comments came the same day that the Free Press reported that 1,100 new Chrysler workers will begin making the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs at a plant in Detroit next week.
“I saw a story today that one of the great manufacturers in this state, Jeep, now owned by the Italians, is thinking of moving all production to China,” Romney said during a rally in Defiance, Ohio, before 12,000 cheering supporters, according to several reports. “I will fight for every good job in America, I’m going to fight to make sure trade is fair, and if it’s fair, America will win.”
Romney apparently was referencing conservative bloggers who misinterpreted a Bloomberg story Read the rest at Detroit Free Press
Let’s set the record straight: Jeep has no intention of shifting production of its Jeep models out of North America to China.Electing Mitt is electing Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Donald Trump, the Koch brothers, Sean Hannity, Sheldon Adelson, the worst of the worst. Here's John Sununu, a Romney backer. At then end of the video, there is an explanation for why what he says is racist. There seem to be a lot of people who have trouble figuring that out. Can you imagine being Colin Powell, former Secretary of State, a retired general, an advocate for education, someone actually worthy of walking the planet, and having to hear people who are pitiful and clueless, such as Sununu, boil everything down to race?

Republicans (and it appears to be only republicans) have implemented an all-out cheating strategy this election. Republican governors tried to put into place voter suppression laws, which has a lot of voters confused about IDs. Republican CEOs have intimidated their workers. Known workplaces using intimidation tactics: Koch Industries, Georgia Pacific, Westgate Resorts and Rite-Hite. I'm sure there are plenty more. Republicans in general have been manipulating voters through fear mongering.
In Florida, Virginia and Indiana, voters have received phone calls that wrongly told them there was no need to cast a ballot in person on Election Day because they could vote by phone.
In Ohio and Wisconsin, billboards in mostly low-income and minority neighborhoods showed prisoners behind bars and warned of criminal penalties for voter fraud - an effort that voting rights groups say was designed to intimidate minority voters.
And across the nation, some employers - notably David and Charles Koch, the billionaire brothers who help fund the conservative group Americans for Prosperity - are urging their workers to vote for Republican Mitt Romney for president. Reuters
