The Complex Black Voter
Experts amuse me when they allege they have the black voter figured out. Here's a perfect example of how complex a black voter can be.
These signs are on the lawn of a black home owner. Let's try to figure out what his allegiance is based on these signs.
Dominic Pileggi for State Senate: This voter supports the white male republican incumbent over the black democratic female newcomer. Maybe he prefers whites, males, republicans, incumbents, or all four.
Obama-Biden for President/Vice President: This same voter supports the black democratic incumbent over the white republican newcomer. Maybe he prefers blacks, democrats, incumbents, or all three.
Jay Schiliro for State Representative: This same voter supports the white republican newcomer over the black democratic incumbent. Maybe he prefers whites, republicans, newcomers, or all three.
Can you figure out a pattern on his voting preferences based on his lawn signs?
