This article out of the Telegraph cracked me up.
The author, Charlie Brooks, goes to Ohio to get a feel for voters.
He’s mostly appalled by the people and you can see it in his writing. (which I have to say makes him sound like a bigot to me. Not a racist bigot, but a middle America bigot)
His conclusion after generally hearing people say they’ll vote for the lesser of two evils, they don’t like either, they don’t care, they don’t think Obama’s experienced enough, they’re “turned off” by politics and one eighteen year old girl who thinks her neighbors secretly won’t vote for a black man:
Ultimately, how Ohio swings will depend on whether the first-time voters dreaming of “hope” outnumber the closet bigots who say “nope”. Based on what I’ve seen, I’m going with “nope”.
That’s right. Out of all the people he talked with, one eighteen year old girl thinks it’s about race, ergo, it is Mr. Brook’s conclusion that Obama will not be elected due to racism.
