You’ll never guess what the Democrats are blaming for President Obama’s lackluster performance in the Kentucky and Arkansas primaries. Give up? Okay, I’ll tell you.
They argue that conservative white Democrats — particularly those in the South and Appalachia — don’t want to vote for an African American for president and, therefore, are willing to cast a ballot for almost anyone else up to and including an incarcerated felon. (Keith Judd, we are looking at you.)
The problem with that theory is that it’s almost entirely unprovable because it relies on assuming knowledge about voter motivations that — without being a mindreader — no one can know.
“There’s no easy or simple answer,” said Cornell Belcher, president of Brilliant Corners, a Democratic polling firm. “One man’s racial differences is another man’s cultural differences.”
What we know beyond a shadow of a doubt is that Appalachia and portions of the South — particularly those states without large African American populations — have long been hostile to President Obama.
They even have maps “proving” the theory that white southerners don’t like Obama because he’s black. It has nothing to do with the fact that he’s a radical leftist whose policies have failed. Nope! They’re just a bunch of raaaaacists.
