IDENTITY POLITICS EATS ITS OWN:

More from the AP-Yahoo News Poll on Race (Mark Halperin, 9/20/08, The Page)

–More than a third of all white Democrats and independents agreed with at least one negative adjective about blacks and they are significantly less likely to vote for Obama than those who don’t have such views. [...]

–Nearly four in 10 white independents agreed that blacks would be better off if they “try harder.”

–Just 59 percent of her white Democratic supporters said they wanted Obama to be president. Nearly 17 percent of Clinton’s white backers plan to vote for McCain.
