The AP deems the 'Bradley effect' a non-factor this election

No kidding, geniuses!

No hidden white bias seen in presidential race.

"WASHINGTON (AP) _ Whether whites supported Barack Obama or not, it doesn't look like they lied to the pollsters about it.

There's no evidence the so-called Bradley effect, described as when whites who oppose a black politician mislead pollsters about whom they're voting for.

Instead the pre-election polls were generally accurate in reflecting how the presidential contest would be decided.

The Bradley effect is named after former Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley, an African-American who lost the race for California governor in 1982 after leading in the polls. But critics say such turnabouts might have been largely because of poor polling."

The AP still couldn't help but inject their own prejudiced mindset when they concluded:
"Still, race mattered. Whites backed McCain by 12 points nationally, while 95 percent of blacks backed Obama."

Krykee. What a bunch of bigots.

Political philosophy or policy disagreements couldn't have possibly figured into this outcome.
