Poll: Only 22% See ‘Celeb’ Ad as Racist

By on 8.3.08 | 10:05AM

The John McCain "Celeb" ad, which drew howls from Democrats and the liberal media, had no such effect on ordinary Americans, according to Rasmussen Reports:

Sixty-nine percent (69%) of the nation's voters say they've seen news coverage of the McCain campaign commercial that includes images of Britney Spears and Paris Hilton and suggests that Barack Obama is a celebrity just like them. Of those, just 22% say the ad was racist while 63% say it was not.
However, Obama's comment that his Republican opponent will try to scare people because Obama does not look like all the other presidents on dollar bills was seen as racist by 53%. Thirty-eight percent (38%) disagree.
So much for David Plouffe's claim that, despite his candidate's losing 9 points in five days, this was actually a bad week for Maverick.
