Scott Rasmussen, founder of Rasmussen Reports
A Rasmussen voter survey from November 3, 2014 found that 87% of black voters believe those who oppose Obama's policies do so because of racism.
What to make of this?
Given that "those who oppose Obama's policies" are Republicans, and that nine out of ten black voters are Democrats, we see that the Democratic Party is successful in teaching its constituents to hate Republicans: Democrats accept as fact that Republicans are racists.
With very few exceptions, every black Democrat voter sees Republicans as racists.
Are congratulations in order? Is this the Democratic Party’s "Mission Accomplished" moment?
We know the Democratic Party is consistent in its themes. My earlier post on The Quiz suggests that if we could track people’s feelings about the Republican Party over time, we would see the gradual adoption of those themes. Americans don’t start out hating Republicans, but with continuous repetition, the Democratic Party is able to inculcate that perception into our American culture.
The Rasmussen survey provides a snapshot of this effect, and is a testament to the power of the Democratic Party.
I know: Nothing to see here; just move along…
