A few hours after Nate argued earlier today that:
Put differently, if you oppose Obama, it becomes much more likely that you do so for reasons related to his race, or because you believe one of the smears about his character, if we also learn that you’re a Democrat.
By coincidence a brand new Pew poll confirms exactly that insight. The title of the article explaining the poll results says it all: “Belief that Obama is Muslim is Durable, Bipartisan – but Most Likely to Sway Democratic Votes.”
That’s called prescient good timing.
