With James O’Keefe out of commission, who’s going to give this scandal the coverage it deserves?
A major survey conducted by The Washington Post, the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation and Harvard University found that 80 percent of black Democrats are as interested or more interested in the midterms than they were in the 2008 presidential election, when their enthusiasm helped propel Barack Obama into office.
This year, 62 percent of all black Democrats say they’re likely to encourage others to support certain candidates, according to the survey, compared with 47 percent of white Democrats and 57 percent of all Republicans.
Should black people be allowed to vote in federal elections while we have a black president? I’m not suggesting that black people should be denied the right to vote, but that there are certain cases in which their stake in the matter may be too great.
