Wilder Effect is not that race will cost Obama the election

My father mentioned today that he thought Obama would ultimately lose because of his race. He said something along the lines that this is the Wilder effect. Nevermind the fact that new research bares out what I have long assumed (it is no longer present), but just to clear up this isn't the Wilder effect.

The Wilder effect is when a certain number of white voters say that they will vote for the black candidate but ultimately don't. It is not that white voters say that they aren't going to vote for the black candidate and don't.

Any racism against Obama should be present in the polls.

I don't expect any surprises.
