Race-Conscious Democrats Would Vote for McCain

Wednesday, 07 May 2008 12:14 PM

Less than half of white voters in Tuesday’s Indiana primary who consider race an important factor would vote for Barack Obama in the general election, exit polls reveal.

In Indiana, 13 percent of white voters called race an important factor in their vote, according to the polls reported by ABC News. In North Carolina, 14 percent of voters in Tuesday’s election cited race as an important factor.

Among those voters in Indiana, only 49 percent said they would support Obama against Republican John McCain in November. The rest said they would vote for McCain or sit out the election.

In North Carolina, 46 percent said they’d opt for the Republican or not vote at all, ABC News reported.

Among the large majority of whites who said race was not an important factor, 67 percent in Indiana and 64 percent in North Carolina said they would support Obama against McCain in November.
