This tidbit from a new CNN poll shows that Obama actually has more support down south than the very Republican George Bush did:
Fifty-seven percent say Obama has been a better president than George W. Bush; only a third say Bush’s track record was better.
“Compared to Obama, Bush does fairly well among southerners and rural voters. But even in those categories, a majority still says Obama has done a better job than Bush,” says Holland.
That should make the Beck type people out there stop and pause for a second. A black “liberal” is rated higher than a white “conservative” in the south.
