How much trouble is McCain in?

An anecdote from one of our regular commenters:

A friend was telling me about calling people in Northern Fla. to ask how they’re voting.

One woman had to ask her husband (first tipoff, ask her husband?)… the response was “We’re voting for the ni***r”

That kinda says something about the repugnican ticket. These people still refer to Obama as ‘the ni***r’, but they’re going to vote for him anyway.

That’s fascinating. And it gels with some of the other reporting we’ve seen lately. Even people who say they hate Obama are voting for him over McCain.
