Update: Per our request, Zata3 has provided the following information:

"Zata|3 performed a two question IVR survey as prescribed by the client. We did not weight for age, race, gender or geographic response. We called registered voter households throughout the state which included voters who had participated in two of the last three primaries (Democrats in the case of the Lincoln/Halter survey and Republicans for the other survey). We randomize the data to improve the distribution of the survey results. Again, at the request of the client, we did not weight for geographic or demographic distribution that matches the electorate--we called until the desired number of completed surveys is obtained."

They also provided the following documents with the full question text: Democratic poll, Republican poll

Shannon,Dallas,Texas:

Lincoln is in trouble. I seriously doubt she's going to be able to fend off Halter.

I hope Halter wins. Win or lose, I would rather see someone with guts run as a real Democrat than Lincoln who has no chance anyhow. It is so sad how a state where 25 percent of the people are uninsured have fought their own interests so much. I am sure that 20 years from now there will be movements to reform politics in the South. They are probably holding back because Obama is African American. When Bill Clinton was president they probably would have supported health care reform in Arkansas.

Shannon,Dallas,Texas:

Bill is going to campaign for Lincoln. There are strong ties there. That's about the only thing that's going to save her. Halter is picking up steam let's hope he can pull it out.

Really? You all simply can't get that the reason most of America doesn't support this healthcare travesty is not because O is black. It isn't even because he's half-black. It isn't because his wife is black. Its because *gasp* we don't like the healthcare bill. Reality: America isn't quite as racist as you think. (Note, I will not deny that there are idiots who line up with me politically who are very racist and give the entire conservative movement a bad name, but the VAST majority of us just don't like Obama and what he stands for.) And no, I honestly don't think Arkansas would support this healthcare plan under Clinton either.

OKC,

When you are losing the argument, the libs' only defense is to cry racism. I would argue there are just as many racists in the Dem party, especially minorities themselves, as in the Rep party.

FM - You are wrong. Liberals are extremely racist without even knowing they are. They view every single thing in life thru the prism of race. The way they stereotype people by race, stereotype entire regions of the country. Just listen to them when they speak. They are inherantly racist, but are so naive they don't even realize it. Just look at this site, how many libs on her cry racism?

You are right to the extent that when they lose the debate, there immeidate fall back position is that you are a racist. But just watch white liberals, espeically those in power or the media talk about blacks and whites. Remember, most liberals view themselves as above the rest of us, they are somehow intelectually superior and much more enlightened in life than dumb idiots like me.

Did you see the liberal media heads on CNN call Gingrich racist for his speech a few days ago? The reason the liberals cry racism at every turn is because they themselves are racist and they justify that racism by trying to put it on others. In our nations hsitory most of the most horrible racist events have been done by Democrats....from presidents like FDR rounding up people based on the color of there skin during WW2....to very famour demos like Bull Connor or Governor Wallace.

Because the liberal mindset itself views everything thru hte prism of race, its that prism which enables there brand of racism.

Again, just look at this site, how many times have you or I, or other conservatives been labeled a racist on this site without ever uttering a racist word?

...and to follow suit, with all honesty, the liberals want it that way. That is how they get votes. They pick a segment of the population, then create a villain for that segment to focus there anger at. Thee villain of choice is the whtie male usually....when the odd thing is that liberal white men are some of the biggest supporters of hate. But liberals thrive on keeping epople at eachothers throats...keep themfighting eachother...make fellow americans think there neighbors hate them. Its how they obtain and retain power, by keeping epople scared, paranoid and dependant.

Compelling sob story Stillow. You could write the politics version of blackxploitation. It could be Cleopatra Jones and the Politics of Gold. Bringing back those 70's hits!

Sadly, most conservatives are either colorblind and refuse to acknowledge systematic discrimination inherent in the system.

HEY, you can drink from the same waterfountain now, you should be fine! Despite every part of civil rights legislation was opposed by the republicans from schooling to making MLK day a holiday.

BUT HEY! Liberals are apparently racists. lol comedy night out tonight! Get your laugh on!

X - Read your history. Without repuboican support civil rights would have failed in the 60's. Braking thsoe filibsuters by everyone's favorite Democrat, robert byrd, etc.

I forget which party dominated the areas of the country where things like you mentioned were seperate, like dirnking fountains....hmmmm, oh yea, that was Democrats!!!!!!!

Nice try though.

Oh you mean when Southern Democrats existed? Well do I have a story about the Whig Party you'll just love to hear... Perhaps with the Bull Moose party as well.

Stillow:

Painful isn't it? Knowing your party hsitory on racial relations. It just goes to that fact you lefties can never seem to grasp. Racism exists in both parties and amongsts all colors. However, the left invents racism where none exists in order to gain votes and keep oepole divided.
