Race and the Crossover Vote

Guest post:

Does this article from Friday's issue of The Washington Times validate my earlier comments on race and the election?
...20 percent of white Democratic voters say they would defect to Mr. McCain if Mr. Obama is the Democratic Party's nominee — twice the number who would cross over if Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton wins the nomination, Pew [Research Center] found.
Clearly Obama is getting lots of white support because Hillary is so unsavory, yet it is clear that the ethnocentric bloc is out there.
