    You should have to take a test to vote

    I'm sure that the people that thumbs downed my response wouldn't pass the test either - MORONS

    Howard Stern. - ?-! lololol C'mon now...think: You cannot take ANY of his sources as newsworthy. So he says he surveryed "Obama supporters' Yo-k. He is self proclaimed super fart man. ....did he ask the blonde who was masterbating on his speaker and screaming 'Yes, yes, yes!' if she was voting for Obama because he was black. THAT is the kind of political insight he has. The people who are interviewed on Howard Stern are not representative of Obama supporters anymore than the KKK is representative of McCain. Best wishes on finding the truth in reliable sources!

    Howard pioneered this type of segment years ago. Basically, you go out on the street, interview a bunch of people, and then cut out any response that is intelligent. The result is comedy with a coating of social commentary in that you get to hear what the tragically uninformed or under-educated members of society think about an otherwise serious issue.

    You should realize that the person who conducted the interviews, Sal Governale (staff member of the Stern Show since 2004), is somewhat obsessed with race; and therefore, the motivations behind his selection of the people and/or location may have been driven by this unfortunate obsession.

    Source(s): Howard Stern Radio Show, various dates, reference to Jay Leno copying his street interviews.

    This just shows that some people are voting solely based on the person not the issues. Some McCain supporters would probably do the same thing.

    Poll: McCain

    P.S: Why cant you try and change peoples opinions?? Everyday on campus I have a billion people obsessed with obama in my face so who cares??

    the last election was fixed anyway so why should anyone give a fook about the candidates policies, the whole two party electoral system is deeply flawed so all the so called intellects on this site answering this condemning the so called 'morons' are arguing about a fart in a tornado...as for the radio show duping the people - well what a bunch of pricks, talk about missing the point.

    McCain or Obama isn't a choice....

    i heard that a week ago, and i agree people need to focus more on the issues than the color of the skin. Like when i took my step dad to the veterans hospital for blood work. I had a few tell me they are voting for Clinton and argued with me when i told them she had dropped out several weeks ago. I hate to say it but some of these veterans who's minds are that far gone shouldn't be voting if they aren't aware of who the candidates are or the candidates running mates.

    Wonder why Sal choose Harlem to do this survey? Is Howard trying to say something here

  • I heard it before. That was a bad Representative sample 4 people in a primarily poor urban neighbor isn't representative of Obama samples if it was 500 or even 100 random people from different neighbor hoods then it would mean something. Most people don't follow politics and don't even vote. I'm sure they won't vote they were just answering questions because someone was asking.

    Source(s): used to have to take a stest to vote long ago but under the civil rights act that is now considered discrimination. Morons have opinions and the freedom to express them through voting. God blss america land of the free and home of the brave

    My friend posted the same clip last night, I found it disturbing that these are the people that are voting! They don't know a damn thing about who they are voting for. Makes the American people look like idiots!!

    They are voting because of his race... I strongly agree with with a contact of mine said in an answer:::

    "If you want socialism and eventually communism, vote democrat, if you want to keep your rights and liberties, vote republican"

    People... PLEASE do your homework on each candidate before making your choice!!!

    This is the question:

    I was listening to the show when Sal did that and I couldn't believe it. It proves that blacks are voting based on skin color. Not a good reason to vote! Nothing against Obama, I think I'm gona vote for him.
