Mississippi Republicans Want To Ban Interracial Marriage

A recent poll conducted by Public Policy Polling determined that 46 percent of Republican voters in Mississippi think interracial marriage should be illegal.

The North Carolina-based Public Policy Polling firm, which conducts polls to gauge voter preferences, also reported 40 percent of Mississippi Republicans think interracial marriage should remain legal, while the other 14 percent were unsure.

The PPP poll released on Thursday, included 400 Mississippi GOP voters, in addition found Governor of Mississippi Haley Barbour as the most favorable potential Presidential nominee candidate.

Despite the fact that it is 2011, interracial marriages in the United States are at an  all-time high, and our current President is interracial, the findings of this poll are surprising, to say the least.

PPP also conducted polls of non-Republican voters the interracial marriage question, and those results should be released within the coming weeks.

The poll did not include information on whether Mississippi Republicans felt Meridian, MS rapper Big K.R.I.T.’s Return Of 4Eva album is a classic or not, but we’re guessing they would have voted the latter.
