Bill Greener Explains...

why Obama must stay above 50% in the polls to win.

And right now, in several key swing states, he's not.

As Greener notes, the reason Obama must be above 50% in the polls to win is the so-called "Bradley Effect", which the left is already touting as evidence of racism. Now I'm not so naive as to believe that racism plays no role in the Bradley Effect, but I have repeatedly emphasized that racism is not its only explanation: Lying to a pollster about who you're going to vote for in this election, or saying that you're undecided when you're really not, doesn't necessarily mean you're a racist, it only means that you're (at least subconsciously) concerned about being labeled as one.
