A new poll out of Mississippi finds that in a bastion of America's south, many Republican voters have tightly held onto the old, hateful views of race as a dividing line in society.
A full 46 percent of Mississippi Republicans said they believe interracial marriage should be illegal, according to the left-leaning survey group Public Policy Polling. Only 40 percent said they thought it should remain legal, with the rest unsure.
UPDATE: Another poll was conducted, asking these 46% of Republicans if they would like to see better gun control laws. Every one said, "Hell, no."
I made that part up, but what do you think? Is that about right? Would the same folks who want to ban certain types of marriages vehemently oppose even common sense gun restrictions? You betcha.
