Not only don't Americans in general believe that he denounced him from a real sense of outrage, we think he probably shares at least some of those views.
Fifty-six percent (56%) say it’s at least somewhat likely that Obama “shares some of Pastor Wright’s controversial views about the United States.” That figure includes 26% who say it’s Very Likely Obama holds such views. At the other end of the spectrum 24% say it’s Not Very Likely that Obama shares such views. Just 11% say it’s Not at All Likely.Rev. Wright also doesn't speak for as large a section of the African American community as I bet he thinks he does.
Just 7% of the nation’s voters agree with Wright’s views of the United States. African-American voters, by a 64% to 12% margin, disagree with Wright. Eighty-one percent (81%) of all voters are following the story somewhat or very closely.Even 48% of Democrats think Obama shares Wright's views. (Not sure what that says about those in the 48%. Are they Hillary C. supporters, or they just don't care?)
So Wright is an issue. Voters don't believe Obama is truly outraged, but is following a political script. How is this different from any other politician shading the truth to get elected? Is this the change we were hoping for? [via My Vast Right Wing Conspiracy]
