Blue-collar voters saw an alarming stat for Barack Obama on Tuesday; he had only one Budweiser during a VFW-hall campaign stop in Indiana recently.
They also found out from a New York Times story that the Illinois senator prefers Black Forest Berry Honest Tea to soft drinks, uses Purell, and he has grown fond of Jay-Z.
From me with strong sarcasm: “Gasp!” From lower-income white voters in places like West Virginia with strong seriousness: “I ain’t voting for that Muslim with the Hussien middle name.”
I saw those reactions during exit-polling there, and the comments give me grave concerns about November. There is strong underlying bigotry in this nation. I just hope it doesn’t show its ugly head.
