What: "MS GOP: Bryant for Gov., Barbour or Huckabee for Pres."
When: April 7, 2011
46% of these hardcore Republican voters believe interracial marriage should be illegal, while 40% think it should be legal.
Of the four hundred "usual Mississippi Republican primary voters" surveyed, that means about 186 gave the straithgforward answer that miscegenating marriages should be illegal. In truth, it is a simple enough argument to understand, even if one disagrees with it to the point of mockery.
Perhaps a bit more confusing, though, are the 56 or so respondents who said they didn't know if interracial marriage should be legal. How, exactly, does that opinion work? What is the underlying question?
I think. They are rough enough numbers; with Pawlenty supporters, you are talking about somewhere in the neighborhood of two people who oppose interracial marriage. And it is Mississippi, after all.
