(Newser) – McCain may lead Obama by 10% among white voters, but three of four white supremacists say they prefer the Illinois senator, Esquire reports.

  1. The Director of the White Aryan Resistance calls Obama a "black racist," but still supports him because of McCain's economic policies. He "hates the transnational corporations more than any black person."

  1. A  former Klan topdog is sticking with McCain: He says Obama is using his race "to get himself elected."
  2. The chairman of the National Alliance is voting Obama because a black president can affirm racial identity across the board.
  3. The Chairman of the American Nazi Party supports Obama because "it’d be poetic justice" to see him govern "this decaying modern Sodom and Gomorrah.”
