Default A majority of Mississippi Republicans believe interracial marriage should be illegal

...We asked voters on this poll whether they think interracial marriage should be legal or illegal- 46% of Mississippi Republicans said it should be illegal to just 40% who think it should be legal. For the most part there aren't any huge divides in how voters view the candidates or who they support for the nomination based on their attitudes about interracial marriage but there are a few exceptions...

I've been through Mississippi on a trip to LA for a bowl game. (I used to march in the UGA Redcoat Marching Band a few yrs ago.) And we stopped in Tupelo, MS. I knew it would probably be a little backwards, but man, it was full of the stereotype redneck southerner you think about when you think of the South.

isn't this the state that elected Haley Barbour? or am I mistaken... if it is, it isn't surprising.

In 2000 40% of Alabama residents voted against a ballot question legalizing interracial marriage.
