Talk About It:
Chicago Tribune: Black Voters Focus on Clinton, Obama — "In the eyes of black voters, Hillary Clinton has a slight edge over Barack Obama, according to a survey released Tuesday. The New York senator was viewed favorably by 83 percent of black voters, compared to Obama's 74 percent. About 10 percent of those surveyed viewed Clinton and Obama negatively."
To what do you attribute these numbers? Do you think that African Americans should vote for Obama simply because of his race? Who are you planning to vote for and why?
