>Race questions cast doubt on presidential polls

>Can the polls be trusted? A central question about race and politics hasn’t changed: Do white people lie — to pollsters or even to themselves — about their willingness to vote for black candidates? A good AP article posted on Yahoo News tries to answer this question.

The bottom line answer to these questions however is yes, whites do lie a little to pollsters when asked about their support for Africa-American candidates. The article does point out however that in this age of YouTube, voters are more racially tolerant then in previous years and are therefore more likely to tell the truth to pollsters when asked their voting preferences.
