NOW IF WE COULD GET THE DARWINIAN RIGHT TO SHUT UP:

Poll: Black Dems near GOP on moral issues (UPI, 12/03/08)

Only 31 percent of black Democrats said gay relations were morally acceptable while 31 percent of Republicans agreed with that position, Gallup results released Wednesday indicated. Sixty-one percent of non-black Democrats said they found same-sex relations morally acceptable. [...]

Gallup reported 65 percent of blacks identify themselves as Democrats and 16 percent said they leaned toward that party. Only 5 percent identified themselves as Republican. Yet, on a number of moral issues, such as gay relations, blacks are aligned more closely with Republican views.


Getting minorities to vote interest instead of identity is the challenge for the next GOP.
