This is an interesting map put up over at Think Progress on Matt Yglesias' blog.
In commentary, Yglesias takes the position that "in general the majority of white men are not progressive."
Is that true, do you think? And if the majority of America's white men are not progressive, why would that be?
Why would only 41% of white male Americans have voted for President Obama? Obama won 53% of the total popular vote.
Why did less than 10% of white males in Alabama and Mississippi vote for America's first black president? 9 out of 10 white male Alabamans and Mississippians voted for McCain.
Open Left sets forward the idea that our history of national voting rights plays a role.
I'm not suggesting any answers here....because I don't know the answers.....I don't.
That's why I'm asking the questions.
