It is being reported by the liberal blog, Talking Points Memo, that the leftwing Public Policy Polling has released some interesting polling data on the former Virginia Republican Senator, George Allen. You may remember, that Allen became the first victim of political correctness during an electoral cycle, as during his 2006 campaign to be re-elected in the United States Senate, which most expected to be without tough opposition or threat to his seat. However, when a tracker for the opposition campaign was present, Allen said the following, "This fellow here over here with the yellow shirt, Macaca, or whatever his name is. He's with my opponent. He's following us around everywhere. And it's just great. We're going to places all over Virginia, and he's having it on film and it's great to have you here and you show it to your opponent because he's never been there and probably will never come. [...] Let's give a welcome to Macaca, here. Welcome to America and the real world of Virginia".
Instantly the Democrats claimed he was using the racial term, in a flat out display of racism, however, it appears Allen just pulled the word out of thin air, the video of the event proves that furthermore. Anyhow, this stupid little word was taken out of context, and it ended up costing Allen his re-election bid by 10,000 votes, all because of political correctness.
Back to 2009, apparently the poll concluded, that if Allen we're to seek the United States Senate seat back in 2012, 31% of Virginia residents would vote for Allen, 36% of Virginia residents would not vote for Allen, and 31% of Virginia residents would consider it. Allen also has an 50% approval rating in the state, with his disapproval below 40%, better then Barack Obama in that state..........a state which he won, and Allen lost.
Of course some liberal commenter had to through this comment by "31% said they are definitely racist, 36% said they are definitely not, and 31% said they would consider being racist.", so if you support a candidate who said "macaca" in a non-racial sense, then you are by the standards a racist, well how about if you supported Gates during his racial tirade against the police officer Crowley, that would make you just as much as a racist.
I believe Senator Allen should attempt to take that seat back, it was stolen from him because of the idiotic political correctness society we are starting to turn into, he needs to show everyone that the issues matter more the some blown out of context comment.

Also, over 10% of black Virginia voters support Allen flat out in a possible Senate re-election bid, are those voters also racist?
