Poll: Obama's race not the only issue in Kentucky

The color of Sen. Barack Obama's skin is a negative for some Kentucky voters, a new poll found, but it's far from the only reason that the Democratic presidential candidate is trailing Republican Sen. John McCain in the state. The Lexington Herald-Leader/WKYT Kentucky Poll found that 12 percent of respondents said the fact that Obama, if elected, would be the first black president of the United States made them less likely to vote for him compared to 5 percent who said it made them more likely to support him. Eighty-three percent said Obama's race wouldn't affect their vote.
