    I wonder how this will affect Ron Paul's chances of becoming President.

    I wery doubt that he is a racist.

    He has the most black supporters among the repubs.

    Which is not saying much since most of the republican primaries this year have been 99% white.

    Also why isn't this in the election thread.

    Also using scare quotes around 'racist' is still dumb because it was being used to describe the newsletters, unless you think those weren't racist.

    I'm sure glad you highlighted those in random colors rather than using the quote feature. Much easier on the eyes. [face_hypnotized]

    Uh, well, my source was reading the exit poll data along with the returns, but I'm sure a decent amount of googling could help you out there.

    Here:

    Iowa: 99% white http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2012/01/03/iowa-caucus-goers-by-the-numbers/
    New Hampshire: 99% white http://www.foxnews.com/politics/elections/2012/new-hampshire-primary-jan-10/exit-polls
    South Carolina: 98% white http://elections.nytimes.com/2012/primaries/states/south-carolina/exit-polls
    Florida: a mere 83% white (still only 1% black, and [link=http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/12000.html]the state has a black population of 16%[/link]) http://www.foxnews.com/politics/elections/2012/florida-primary-jan-31/exit-polls
    Nevada: 90% white (1% black again) http://www.foxnews.com/politics/elections/2012/nevada-caucuses-feb-4/entrance-polls


    I don't have any of last night's results offhand, that's still 3/5 with 98%+ white turnout and not a single one with more than 1% black turnout- and your argument was specifically about black voters rather than non-white voters.

    More breaking news.

    The name of the person responsible for authorizing the decision to make racist newsletters in the first place, and then being intimately involved in proof-reading and copy editing them: [link=http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/ron-paul-signed-off-on-racist-newsletters-sources-say/2012/01/20/gIQAvblFVQ_story_2.html]Ron Paul[/link]

    Yeah, wocky, but Nagai put "racist" in quotation marks. Therefore your post is invalid.
