The preceding response suggests that my research and that of Giles and Buckner (1994) produce results that are substantively the same. This is not true. The following findings either contradict or supplement theirs: 1. A high concentration of African Americans in a white voter's parish did not, on average, increase the probability the voter would support Duke. 2. An urban white's probability of voting for Duke decreased, on average, as proximity to African Americans increased. 3. The bulk of David Duke's support came from urbanized areas, especially suburbs, that were once thought to have little interest in such candidates.
