What Do White People Have Against Ron Paul?

I’ve finally figured out what’s holding back the Ron Paul campaign. He hasn’t done enough to attract the white vote, at least according to the latest survey of New York State voters by SurveyUSA. Conducted over Jan. 30-31, the survey shows Ron Paul getting only 3% of the white vote in New York, compared to 17% of black voters and 11% of hispanics. By comparison, Mike Huckabee gets a big goose-egg among black voters.

The other interesting stat from the survey is that Ron Paul ranks second, at 14%, among voters who name “Education” as their most important issue for the next President.
