From Page 1
tino, a political science profes-
sor at the University of Texas at
Austin, said voters might be more
concerned about a candidate's race
than they're willing to admit.
He said voters often lie to exit
pollsters about how they've voted.
That phenomenon leads some
to say they've voted for Barack
Obama - who's vying to become
the nation's first black president
- even when they haven't, he said.

Because of this, Obama tends to do
better in exit polling than he does
in the actual primary contests,
Valentino said.
He said the race of the inter-
viewer often affects voters'
answers to exit poll questions.
Kathleen Frankovic, director
of surveys at CBS News, offered
other reasons for Obama's suc-
cess in exit polls. Young voters
and well-educated voters are more
likely to participate in exit polls,
as they are often more enthusi-
astic about their candidate, she
said. These demographics have

favored Obama, inflating his exit
poll results.
Political Science Associate Prof.
Vince Hutchings, who studies
voter behavior at the University,
said Obama's decision to downplay
race in his campaign has helped
him reach a wider base of support.
"Obama's success is born out
of this effort to not talk about the
thing which divides us the most
- race," he said.
Hutchings said Obama's cam-
paign has affected white voters
differently from black voters. For
white voters, he said, Obama's

campaign success serves as an
indication that racism doesn't exist
anymore. For black voters, Obama
is providing hope for equal oppor-
tunity in the country, he said.
The panelists also discussed
the role gender has played in Hill-
ary Clinton's candidacy. Valentino
said the media has held Clinton to
a double standard - she's had to
portray herself as both a strong
leader and a feminine at the same
time.
"She really has to walk a tight
rope, and many have mentioned
that there may be no rope there,"

he said.
The panelists said voters are
often sexist when making voting
decisions.
To illustrate the theory,
Frankovic showed a clip in
which journalist Katie Couric
interviewed working class men
about whether they'd vote for a
woman president. Most said they
wouldn't.
Frankovic said the clip shows
that Americans are typically less
veiled about voicing sexism than
racism.
Rackhamn student Davin Phoe-

Tuesday, March 11, 2008 - 7
nix said he enjoyed the discussion
because it provided a closer look at
the upcoming general election. He
said much of the media coverage
surrounding Obama and Clinton
has limited the debate to race and
gender.
Carol Boyd, director of Univer-
sity's Institute for Research on
Women and Gender, called the
event a success.
"It highlighted that the voters
in 2008 are more important than
ever and that issues of race and
gender remain at the forefront of
America's conscience," she said.

ous. You might be concerned for the wel-
fare of someone in particular.
GEMINI
(May 21 to June 20)
It's easy to put the needs of others
before your own today because you see
the big picture, and you see how this pic-
ture affects everyone involved. In other
words, you have eagle mind, not mouse
mind.
CANCER

itable and productive today. You're
enthused to be involved in group activi-
ties that make a difference to others.

role model in some way. (Don't let this
chance slip by.)

This is a good time to make travel
plans, sign tsp for a course or explore dif-
ferent cultures and different religions.
You're very open-minded to unusual
ways of approaching things.
LIBRA
(Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
You definitely can benefit from the
wealth or the property of others today.
Someone might give you something or
let you have the use of whatever he or
she owns.

SCORPIO
(Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
Now is the time for heart-to-heart dis-
cussions with partners and close friends.
People are ready to listento you. They're
also ready to think the best of you.
SAGITTARIUS
(Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
This can bea positive, productive and
happy day at work. Communication with
others is successful because people want
it to be. (Where there's a will, there's a
way.)
CAPRICORN
(Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
Sports, romance, vacations and play-
ful activities with children are favored
today. You're not in the mood to work.
You want to have fun today!
AQUARIUS
(Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
Domestic situations and family dis-
cussions are blessed today. Good feel-
ings abound. This is the day to talk over
tricky situations, because people feel
cooperative.
PISCES
(Feb. 19 to March 20)
This is a good day to sign deals or
enter into negotiations. It's also a good
day to form partnerships. People feel
friendly and fair-minded. (After all, truly
good business is mutually beneficial.)
YOU BORN TODAY You're very
plugged in to whatever is going on
around you locally or globally. You like
to be in the know. You're cutting-edge
and competitive. In your private life,
your more dreamy Piscean side is obvi-
ous. You have a discerning eye and
excellent taste. People seek out your
advice. Your year ahead is pleasantly
social and very favorable for partner-
ships.
