A really interesting thing has happened on the way to the election.

PJTV's Tea Party TV today unveiled the results of a special Tea Party poll, which revealed that about one-in-three (32%) African Americans who are likely voters would vote for a candidate supported by the Tea Party movement.

"Questions of racism within the Tea Party have been raised for months now," said Vik Rubenfeld, PJTV's Polling Director. "Our survey found that more than one-in-three African Americans support the movement. Moreover, the data revealed that 32 percent are also likely to vote for a congressional candidate whom the Tea Party supports."

"PJTV's Tea Party poll shows that, for many black voters, race no longer serves as a rationale for supporting policies that undermine their economic interests," said Joe Hicks, PJTV's host of the Minority Report and a former Executive Director for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. "Democrats and leftists have attempted to define the Tea Party movement as a collection of angry white bigots. However, the PJTV poll of black voters shows the wheels on the race card bus are beginning to fall off."
Or perhaps another liberal meme has been thrown under the reality bus. (Note: if you are interested in more links the above linked Yahoo article has them.)

You can see Vik discuss the results on Pajamas TV.

This is anecdotal, but I've been hearing a lot of black folks calling talk shows lately and saying how what Obama is doing has opened up their eyes and they are changing their vote.

Interesting. That would confirm what that black lady said to the Present the other day.
