Kentucky exit polls indicate that 21% of KY voters said race was
important. My question is this, how many folks were asked that question, but
didn't respond honestly?
I suggest the racist voted yesterday and they have been exposed and it can no longer be said, with any honesty, that race doesn't matter here in Kentucky.
CNN exit polls indicate that 21% of KY voters said the race of the candidate was important. Of them, 81% voted for Hillary Clinton, while 16% cast a ballot for Barack Obama.
Meanwhile, 18% of those who said race was important to them were white, and almost nine of 10 voted for Clinton.
For all the talk of the impact of gender bias in the Democratic contest and, most notably, in media coverage of the battle, the race of the IL senator persists as a variable for many rural, white voters.
