Fresh off his re-election, President Barack Obama is asking his supporters to complete a survey that asks the people being polled to check off which “constituency groups” they identify with – there are 22 groups listed.
The post-election survey, distributed through http://www.barackobama.com/to “take this organization forward,” includes the question, “Which constituency groups do you identify yourself with? Select all that apply.”
(But, well, um…., no Men? …. no Whites)
