Some of Romney's best friends own NASCAR teams, he is certainly better able to empathize with the NASCAR fan base.

Wow Mitt! How much of a f*ck up are you as a republican to lose the coveted NASCAR dads?

Who can blame NASCAR fans? Mittens will throw them under the bus with everybody else.

WTF Indeed: It's almost like the only thing Southerns hate more than a minority in power is a rich white guy Yankee.

imontheinternet: Obama's secret socialist agenda of making people, even former Real Americans, dependent on the government is finally paying off. Next, he will start enslaving white people in FEMA camps and selling them to the Chinese to pay off the national debt.

Poopspasm: As funny as this poll (and headline) is, I'm obliged to point out that this has more to do with NASCAR attracting a more diverse fan base than it does with toothless hillbillies deciding they're cool with a black president.

You're being far too sensible. Stop that.

Moosecakes: Just learned a great joke from the comments on that page:

"What the difference between Romney and Obama? The Jews who control Romney prefer gifilte fish whereas the Jews who control Obama prefer smoked sturgeon."

Sounds like they've got Lox of differences

herrDrFarkenstein: I heard that the drivers are all getting tattoos on one arm that say, "OBAMA." And another one that just says, "HEY!"

wademh: Dr Dreidel:
... If you don't live within an hour of a NASCAR track, you're not likely to get to a race ....

You know nothing about NASCAR fans.

Yeah, I laughed at that, too. When I was stationed in Altus, Oklahoma, some of my neighbors were part of a big crown of local Nascar fans that caravaned the 700 miles to Talladega, Alabama twice a year for the races. They were die-hard.

PS - Firefox wants to correct Talladega to "Gallbladder"... ;)

SevenizGud: CokeBear: You know how I know the GOP is doomed?

Because the outcome of the last election was the GOP taking over congress in a beat-down of historic proportions? Just guessing....

Posts like these are what that Bruce Springsteen song "Glory Days" are about.

downstairs: As a NASCAR fan (and someone who would most likely vote for Obama without a viable 3rd party)... I'm rather surprised.  Many fans of NASCAR are not uneducated hicks from the south... but its still a large portion of the fanbase unfortunately (judging by how many confederate flags I see during tailgating.)

It's kind of ironic, NASCAR events in Northern California are held at Sear's Point raceway which is SMACK DAB in the middle of wine country surrounded by some of the most posh snobs on the planet. Now THERE'S a demographic cross-over I'd love to see.

among those sympathetic to the tea party, Romney holds a 75 to 17 percent edge

So even the republican base has 17 percent going for Obama...

I might have to sit this one out. The only thing I dislike more than Romney is NASCAR, and I feel it would create a great disturbance in The Force to associate, even if ever so tenuously, with those cousin-banging hicks.

Well, that settles THAT. I'm voting Romney, coz I ain't no redneck hick!
