(Image Source: Shutterstock / ejwhite) BY XIAONAN WANG ANCHOR ANA COMPAIN-ROMERO Interracial marriage in the U.S. is on the rise. A recent survey found the rate has hit a new record. KNXV has the details: “New pew research center study finds a record of one in 12 marriages are couples now between different races. Researchers say 8.4% of all U.S. marriages are interracial. That’s up from 3.2 percent 1980.” Evidence also shows that attitudes towards intermarriage have dramatically changed over the past century. Here is more from Washingtonpost: "In a 1986 Roper Poll, two-thirds of the people said they could never imagine themselves marrying someone from a different race. In a 2009 Pew poll, just 6 percent of whites and 3 percent of blacks said they would not accept an interracial marriage in their family." And a MSNBC analyst says the trend is a good thing for the social consciousness. “I think that the biggest take away from this is really that interracial marriage is no longer a taboo. ...So what we're really seeing, I think, is a generational shift and it's really a shift for the good.” Some say the changing pattern in marriage symbolizes the improving race relations in the country. A Jezebel article cites a sociologist explaining the connection behind them. “Mixed-race children have blurred America's color line. They often interact with others on either side of the racial divide and frequently serve as brokers between friends and family members of different racial backgrounds." Although interracial marriages are becoming more common, Fox News Latino focuses on a discouraging scenario indicated from the same study. “The Pew study also tracks some divorce trends, citing studies using government data that found overall divorce rates higher for interracial couples.” But the trending discussion on interracial marriages is drawing ire from some people. They ask why it becomes topical anyway? CNN quotes some unhappy voices from social media. "Why do people give inter-racial dating so much lip service?"“I look forward to the day when stories about "inter-racial" marriages are no longer newsworthy." A researcher from Cornell University says most of the minorities who marry are not being married to other minorities, but to whites.

BY JJ BAILEY You're watching multisource politics video news analysis from Newsy. Public blowback as a survey released Public Policy Polling suggests that 46% of Republicans in Mississippi think interracial marriage should be illegal. The survey was conducted from March 24-27 and surveyed 400 Republican voters. Nested in with questions about which presidential candidates they preferred, respondents were asked: Do you think interracial marriage should be legal or illegal? When published, the results when straight into newscasts. “Almost half of mississippi republicans think interracial marriage should be against the Not surprising in the same poll mississippi republicans think their governor, haley barbour, should be the gop nominee for president.” And the blogosphere’s reaction was fast and furious. A Care 2 writer fumes... “Since interracial marriage has been legal in Mississippi for less than fifty years, this poll result is even more depressing. After all, the respondents weren't simply passing a moral judgment on interracial marriage, they were saying that they thought it should be banned outright.” And a writer for The Stir takes it a step further, attacking the citizens of Mississippi. “No, these survey results do not date back to the Civil War or Civil Rights Movement. They're from today, 2011. Are these people out of their minds, or is Mississippi stuck in some kind of hate-filled time warp? I tend to think it's more so the latter …” Despite PPP being taken at its word - many are noting, the firm is not unbiased. The Daily Mail called the firm Democrat-affiliated- while the Antlantic Wire called it liberal-leaning. (AOC) And a writer for Discover Magazine dissected the numbers further, comparing the results to General Social Survey, a study that was repeated every year for 30 years until 2002. He says, the numbers don’t quite add up. “By 2002 it was a consistent finding that less than 10% of Americans would accede to the proposition that interracial marriage should be legally banned. So the finding that 46% of Mississippi Republicans agree with that position, and that only 40% reject it outright, is somewhat curious.” He goes on to break down the results by political ideology, noting that Mississippi Republicans who identified as “Very Liberal” or “Somewhat Liberal” were the most in favor of banning interracial marriage, which may have clouded the results. “I think the liberal Republican opposition to interracial marriage in Mississippi is due to small sample size and mistaken responses. I really doubt there are very many liberal Republicans in Mississippi.” Finally, Talking Points Memo takes a look at what these responses mean for presidential hopefuls in 2012. “The poll also found that voters who thought interracial marriage should be banned liked Barbour, Palin, and Huckabee the most among the slate of potential GOP presidential candidates. Seventy-nine percent of those voters said they approved of Gov. Barbour's job performance, while 74% said they had a favorable opinion of Sarah Palin, and 73% viewed Huckabee favorably.” PPP has said they also asked non-Republican voters the interracial marriage question, and those results will be released sometime in the future. They also asked whether respondents believe the right side won the Civil War. 'Like Newsy' on Facebook for health video news updates in your feed.

The clip having a senator for a father from Larry King Now!: Meghan McCain (2012) with Meghan McCain, Larry King. Powered by: Anyclip. any moment from any film. No and I have no desire to. A great father and I’m not just saying that because I’m on camera right now. We talk every day every other day. He called me from - he was overseas in Afghanistan over the Fourth of July. He called me in Germany on his way there and he checks in. He wants to know everything that’s going on in my life –not just politics. He wants to know about personal life - “Are you dating? Are you happy? How are you friends? Are you doing okay?” He’s fantastic. He always makes time for me. What about the Republican party and women? You think Obama will get more women votes than the Republican candidate? He’s a great guy. I think unfortunately the rhetoric that has happened in the primary in the primary so far with all this conversation about whether or not women should have access to birth control has done a lot of damage. And I worry about it in the future. Today would Obama get the women’s vote? Probably. I think Gov. Romney has a lot of opportunity to pick up where Obama is failing but listen - there’s been a lot of damage done to the women’s vote during the primaries at this election. Yeah. You’ve expressed admiration for Hilary Clinton in the past right? You describe yourself as a progressive Republican. Yeah. We don’t agree on anything politically but I just love strong women in politics and strong women in the media. She really is who she is and she’s out there. I think she’s a really great role model for strong women. Yeah. Pretty good secretary of state? Are you therefore in the distinct minority? Yeah. Great secretary of state. No I think there’s a lot of moderate and progressive Republicans out there. Was it tough growing up in a political household? Where are they? No my parents were great. They really kept us sheltered. I grew up in Phoenix. So I didn’t grow up in DC. I had a really normal childhood. I rode horses and hiked in the desert. The only time it got hard was when my dad ran for president the first time. But I have nothing to compare it to but I have a great family unit. They’re not on TV. They’re average Americans in America. They’re not pendants on TV. How do you see this election going? You’re supporting Romney. Talk radio is rightwing. I’m supporting Romney. They’re not on talk radio. They’re not in the media. I think it’s average Americans that just –again 20-somethings grow up with gay friends. This isn’t this controversial crazy thing. This is something that is very normal for the majority of Americans in their 20s. Are you ardently supporting Romney? How do you think this election is going to go? Give me an analytical. Give me an objective view if you can. Yes I am. I would never vote for President Obama. I really hope that Gov. Romney chooses a formidable vice presidential candidate. I worry that if he chooses someone boring and middle of the road I don''t think it’s going to get the momentum that he needs. I think objectively if the economy keeps going the way that it is; if Obama keeps coming out saying he’s only raised 60000 jobs80000 jobs per month - Americans just aren’t going to stand for it. It’s not enough. I think Romney could very well win if the economy keeps going the way that it will. Do you have a favorite? You ardently support same-sex marriage. Chris Christy. I love Chris Christy. I call him Tony Soprano. I just love him and his straight talk. When he’s angry he’s angry. When he’s fine he’s fine. I just think he’s interesting and provocative. Ardently. You think the weight would hurt him though - that people would look at him not as a … I agree with you. Your father does not. I think America would relate to it. America is not a skinny country. I just toured it. I know. For me I kind of like it. He’s like “Yeah I’m fat. Get over it.” I like that. No. What kind of father is your dad? Is that a source of argument? A great father and I’m not just saying that because I’m on camera right now. We talk every day every other day. He called me from - he was overseas in Afghanistan over the Fourth of July. He called me in Germany on his way there and he checks in. He wants to know everything that’s going on in my life –not just politics. He wants to know about personal life - “Are you dating? Are you happy? How are you friends? Are you doing okay?” He’s fantastic. He always makes time for me. It’s not argument. Well I came out of the No Hate campaign which is a campaign - it’s in support of same-sex marriage. There’s a picture that goes along with it. You have duct tape on your face and “No Hate” on your cheek. He wasn’t terribly pleased when I did that because it got a lot of attention. Then my mother did it because I convinced her to do it and he wasn’t terribly pleased. He doesn't like it when it turns into this thing that it pits my family against each other in the media. Do we go home and fight about it? No He’s a great guy. Do you think Obama’s been okay on gay rights? Coming out for gay marriage? Yeah. He’s publicly come out for gay marriage but he hasn’t done anything regarding legislation. I think if he were really supporting it he could jam legislation down America’s throat like he just did with immigration. For me I don’t understand why the gay community is somehow satisfied with this. For me if you change gay and put it in the term “interracial marriage You describe yourself as a progressive Republican. But Romney is hardly supportive of that. Yeah. No don’t quote me. I know he’s against same-sex marriage. I don’t know about civil unions. I think he believes it will be state-by-state issue. Listen Republicans have a lot of places to go. But I’m not a one-issue voter. Are you therefore in the distinct minority? I would have gathered you would have supported Huntsman. No I think there’s a lot of moderate and progressive Republicans out there. No. Where are they? Socially liberal. They’re not on TV. They’re average Americans in America. They’re not pendants on TV. You know he didn’t inspire me. I just like grit and he didn’t seem to be very much of a fighter. I also didn’t understand sort of - I don’t understand how you can work for the Obama administration as a Republican on a very basic level. I know he said he chose to serve his country which is a great thing for him to say I just - he was not my candidate. Talk radio is rightwing. Coming up - you asked she’s telling. Meghan answers your Twitter questions. The book is “America You Sexy Bitch.” Be right back. We’re back with Meghan McCain. Let’s get to some Twitter questions. Melva Williams wants to know - do you think Romney has a chance to defeat Obama?

The clip answering twitter questions from Larry King Now!: Meghan McCain (2012) with Larry King, Meghan McCain. Powered by: Anyclip. any moment from any film. They’re not on talk radio. They’re not in the media. I think it’s average Americans that just –again 20-somethings grow up with gay friends. This isn’t this controversial crazy thing. This is something that is very normal for the majority of Americans in their 20s. Yeah. Like I just said if the economy keeps going the way it’s going we’re going to see President Romney in office. How do you think this election is going to go? Give me an analytical. Give me an objective view if you can. Stacy Sherwood Reece asks - as a young Republican what do you envision for the future of your party? Do you think it will move closer to the middle or further to the right? Good question. I think objectively if the economy keeps going the way that it is; if Obama keeps coming out saying he’s only raised 60000 jobs80000 jobs per month - Americans just aren’t going to stand for it. It’s not enough. I think Romney could very well win if the economy keeps going the way that it will. I think if we keep losing elections there’s absolutely no other option other than for the extreme right to start accepting people like me. There’s really no other option. We’re going to continue to lose elections unless we start branching out and reaching different voters. You ardently support same-sex marriage. A little bit about you personally. Is it hard to date when you’re Meghan McCain? Ardently. Yes. It’s the hardest thing. I agree with you. Your father does not. Are men intimidated? No. Yes very very. And men want to go out with me. I’ll get asked out and they just want to go out with me like it’s some kind of - to go on a date with the controversial senator’s daughter just to have the story Is that a source of argument? Another Twitter question - PRNZ3 wants to know who’s your favorite person to follow on Twitter? Yes very very. And men want to go out with me. I’ll get asked out and they just want to go out with me like it’s some kind of - to go on a date with the controversial senator’s daughter just to have the story Because of her hair - beehive. Do you think Obama’s been okay on gay rights? Coming out for gay marriage? Would you run for office? He’s publicly come out for gay marriage but he hasn’t done anything regarding legislation. I think if he were really supporting it he could jam legislation down America’s throat like he just did with immigration. For me I don’t understand why the gay community is somehow satisfied with this. For me if you change gay and put it in the term “interracial marriage No no. But Romney is hardly supportive of that. Not at all? No don’t quote me. I know he’s against same-sex marriage. I don’t know about civil unions. I think he believes it will be state-by-state issue. Listen Republicans have a lot of places to go. But I’m not a one-issue voter. No but I would love to help run a campaign again. I would love to work on another campaign. I would have gathered you would have supported Huntsman. We’re almost out of time so what we’re going to do here is I’m going to - we do this little game here.
