THE RACE FACTOR DOESN'T TURN UP IN POLLS:

The White Stuff: A new NEWSWEEK Poll underscores Obama's racial challenge. (Jonathan Darman, 5/23/08, Newsweek)

Even as he closes in on the Democratic nomination for the presidency, Sen. Barack Obama is facing lingering problems winning the support of white voters--including some in his own party. In a new NEWSWEEK Poll of registered voters, Obama trails presumptive Republican nominee Sen. John McCain 40 percent to 52 percent among whites.

Poll: Kerry leads among minority voters: Bush improving over 2000 election results (CNN, July 6, 2004)
The poll, released Tuesday, found that in a two-way race between Bush and Kerry, 53 percent of white registered voters supported Bush, while 41 percent supported Kerry.
