(WiredPRNews) — March 18, 2008- The progressive nature of voters is finally showing in this Presidential Election, with Hillary Clinton, first woman, and Barack Obama, first African American man, as frontrunners in the race for a Democratic party nomination. But who is really voting for whom?
Are all women voting for Hillary Clinton because she is a woman? Are African American voters voting for Barack Obama for the same reason? The statistics are showing that Obama leads in all categories as visible by stats below.
Barack Obama leads Hillary Clinton 54% to 37% among self-described Democrats and Obama leads 53% to 42% among self-described independents and Republicans. Among men (42% of likely Democratic primary voters), Obama leads 53% to 37%. Among women, Obama leads 55% to 38%.
Clinton leads 65% to 28% among white voters (43% of likely Democratic primary voters). Obama leads 75% to 15% among African American voters (54% of likely Democratic primary voters). (American Research Group, Inc. 3-10-08). You can draw your own conclusions, like the rest of American women. No, the majority aren’t voting for Hillary Clinton because she is a woman.
In today’s world, women do not like to be singled out and made a minority solely because they are women. American people want change and they want it now.
Whether black, white, yellow, man or woman, they don’t seem to mind. Hillary Clinton represents the old way of doing things and Barack Obama represents change for the better.
