Republicans find their affirmative action sweet spot

National Journal:
An un­usu­al di­men­sion of Car­son’s sup­port among con­ser­vat­ives, poll­sters add, is simply that he is an Afric­an-Amer­ic­an they agree with. Some of Car­son’s sup­port­ers are try­ing to show that their op­pos­i­tion to Pres­id­ent Obama isn’t be­cause of his race but be­cause of vehe­ment dis­agree­ment on the is­sues. Re­pub­lic­an poll­sters note that black con­ser­vat­ives such as Sen. Tim Scott, the South Car­o­lina Re­pub­lic­an, have also be­nefited from this in re­cent years.
