This is somewhat instructive but only so far. Jimmy Kimmel wanted to see if Romney could win any of the black vote so he went to a barbershop in Brooklyn to see if he could find any supporters. As you might guess, he didn’t. In fact when he asked what Romney could do to win the black vote someone yelled out “turn black” while others yelled “drop out of the race”. Talk about identity politics.
But I say it’s only instructive to a point and what I mean is that they are in a group setting on national TV. Of course no one is going to out themselves as a Romney supporter considering the kind of backlash that people like Stacey Dash have received. So there could have been one or two Romney supporters in the room and only the anonymity of the polling place will reveal it. Hmmm…I guess even that itself is instructive.
