NPR Host Steve Inskeep recently asked Barack Obama “Will you need to dominate (the black) vote in order to win?

Obama: “I will be speaking to themes that are important to that community, but I don’t expect to get monolithic African American vote… I think we have some strong candidates in the field and it would be presumptuous of me to assume that people would vote for me simply because of my race.”

Recent polls by CNN suggest:

“Whites are more likely than blacks to say America is ready for a black president, which may be part of why much of the African-American community is cool to the presidential candidacy of Sen. Barack Obama.”
