Would he get more or less support, if he were white or hispanic?
Has the presidents heritage given him an advantage, or has it caused him setbacks?
Hard to know isn't it? I would say it probably helped him get into office but has made it much harder to be a succesfull president while there.
Sir, I live in the South...and everyone can play nice online and deny it, but I listen to it every single day. The answer is YES.
I am of the blissful opinion that his skin color has made absolutely no difference whatsoever.
Then again, I have been known to live in fantasy land on occasion.
Right or wrong skin color has played a part in public opinion of Barrack Obama.There are some who solely support Barrack Obama because of the color of his skin,and those who will not support him base solely on skin color.
Personally, i think he should be evaluated on his ability to 'do the job', and less about his skin colour. To me it seems to be who is more popular in the media, rather than who can be a better president.

But thats the point lol, more and more people are complaining because of his abilities/inabilities, i am interested as to wether pre existing racist ideologies are also having an effect.
To me, the man doesn't inspire thoughts of black or white, which is a good thing. He got elected partly because he's partly black and partly because McCain appeared weak which gave Obama the edge in the youth market. He also utilized social media in a big way which is really what got him elected and that was a smart move.
Does he inspire one way or the other? I don't think so if you eliminate the racists on both ends.

I've heard from some of my returning commenters that the increase in saturation and speed of internet media have had some effect on the outcome of current events. Whether this is good or bad remains to be seen. I'm curious to hear from people who've had their finger on the pulse of politics and...

Was it a mistake for the president to give his opinion on gay marriage?Was it powerful moment in history? Or was it a ploy to gain more support that will back fired in the end?
