Obama, I imagine.  Clinton in the primary, probably.

Smokers are disproportionately low-income and undereducated.  They're less white than average, although it's not purely a direct racial relationship.  Native Americans have very high smoking rates, and blacks are a way's under, then whites, then (I think) Hispanics and Asians, forget what order.

blacks & whites are about the same.  Native Americans smoke at a much higher clip and Asians much lower (particularly Asian women).  don't really recall about Hispanics, I think it's a few points lower than blacks/whites.

I think we're probably talking about the same stats, then.

It actually surprises me that Asian women smoke at such low rates.  I see a lot of young Asian women (college-aged) smoking in Seattle, I assume it's a weight control thing.  Not claiming that's a better sample, but I'm surprised
