Wut about the "White Man"?
With all of the talk about "the Black Vote" , "The Women Vote", "the Hispanic Vote", "White Women"/Black Women" Vote!!!!! The list goes on and on.

But I have to admit that I never hear much about the "White Men" vote. This story suggests that "white men would rather cross the line and vote Republican, than vote for a black man. It also suggests that the majority of white men feel that voting a woman into office symbolizes everything that they hate about womens rights and roles. I saw on CNN where the Jack Cafferty posed the question as to whether or not the vote of "White Men" was being ignored..

Here's the link

Is the vote of "Whitey" himself being ignored.

Well, being a "White Male" from WI. I was surprised to see how well Obama did in my state. I was pretty sure he was going to win, but not by the #'s he did.

The article is about a specific group of white men (blue collar):

Quote:
The group is usually defined as those without a college degree, including union members and those with service and technical jobs. They typically make less than $50,000 a year. And, they make up huge chunks of the electorate in key states like Ohio, Michigan, Missouri and Pennsylvania.
And the article makes a good point--these people typically vote Democrat, but may switch over because a) they are not ready for a female or black president and b) McCain is much closer to their political profile than previous Republican Presidential Candidates ("a" is the point made by the article, I made the "b" point).
