This study on race and the 2008 election concludes the following:

Overall, we conclude that racial attitudes did not play a major role in determining the outcome of the 2008 Presidential election ... We find little evidence that Obama underperformed relative to congressional Democrats in states that have a white electorate with stronger racial bias. We also find little evidence that turnout was higher among segments of the electorate that are predicted to be more racially biased."
