i really doubt that. sure, he had the racist vote against him, but in all honesty i'd wager those people typically vote a lot anyway and don't vote liberal. i'd say the country was probably pretty evenly split before, but he appealed to college and hippie types who probably wouldn't usually have voted.
i'm not saying that's all he had going for him. the "not being a republican" thing was also very attractive and he espoused quasi-european ideals. a democrat's dream.
all pointless conjecture though. the polls and ballots don't reveal the true reasoning behind the votes.

He appealed to college and hippie types, but not exclusively or even primarily because he was black. A lot of people who were already fans of his also liked the idea of a "historic" presidency, electing the first black guy, but I don't think it was a primary motivation for too many. Maybe for some black people, but 99% of them were going to vote D anyway. Might have gotten more blacks out to vote.

Obama has a LOT of Democrats vote *against* him in the primaries because he was black. Some of those people came around later on, but not all by a long shot. The racist Republican types weren't going to vote for him period, obviously, but there are plenty of racist Democrats in places like Appalachia.

Also, who cares about race anyway? Aren't we supposed to look past that? Aren't we conditioned that race should not factor in to anything? Isn't it ironic then that the media still makes such a huge deal out of it all?

That was more of a "/s" than anything else, since that's what all the whiteys were saying before Obama was elected.

The exit polling data is still out there, a large number of people openly stated that they voted against Obama because of his race.

I hope it takes awhile for an asian prez. All we need right now is a tentacle rape scandal in the oval office.
