In a recent poll, Public Policy Polling (PPP) has learned the following:
- 46% of Mississippi Republicans think interracial marriage should be illegal.
- 74% of those same Republicans view Sarah Palin favorably.
Here’s Tom Jensen:
We asked voters on this poll whether they think interracial marriage should be legal or illegal- 46% of Mississippi Republicans said it should be illegal to just 40% who think it should be legal. Palin’s net favorability with folks who think interracial marriage should be illegal (+55 at 74/19) is 17 points higher than it is with folks who think interracial marriage should be legal (+38 at 64/26.)
On her way to the Republican nomination, Sarah’s got the Mississippi racist vote banked.
I also think it’s reasonable to infer that her Mississippi supporters generally oppose, not just blacks marrying whites, but men marrying men, women marrying women, and Christians marrying Muslims.
That about covers it. “Pro-family politics.”
