Not really a surprise, seeing as how Blacks vote 95% democratic nationally regardless of the candidate, but that still has to sting

Psssst, thepenis-goes-war legislation backfired. Apparently they don't care as much about the gays as they do about the plantation owners.

The margin of error is plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.

So, it may be less than 0%.

consider this: If a black republican was running against a white democrat, 90% would vote republican. Blacks be crazy like that.


tell that to alan keyes.

It's probably a relief. He can go outright racist without the risk of losing their votes.

You see, conservatives just need a great communicator to better, uh, communicate conservative positions on the issues near and dear to our more-than-welcome African American broth... er, rather fellow Americans. yea, our fellow African Americans. wait. Well, not fellow African Americans of course, our African American fellow Americans. That's better. Once they... er, once everyone understands the virtue and Americanosity of making yourself into everything you can be, just like Mitt Romney, well, those people... err, African Americans will be voting for America-loving conservatives all over the country.

Hopefully Skinnyhead can get over there and explain how racist the Obama administration is to them.
 
2012-08-23 11:32:32 AM
Just multiply thay number by 3/5 and it doesnt hurt quite so bad...thats if they vote at all
 
2012-08-23 11:33:04 AM
Obama also beats Romney among Latinos, voters under 35 and women, while Romney does better than Obama with whites, rural voters, seniors, people of the land, and common clay of the New West.

he's white a really really shiatty candidate that the GOP is constantly complaining about so why expect blacks to like him?


FTFY

totally. Otherwise the GOP would have the black vote in their back pocket like they did in 2008 and 2004 and 2000 and 1996 and 1992 etc.

I mean, even McCain got black votes when he ran against Obama.

I don't get this. 0% among Blacks, 28%(vs 68%) among Latinos. Who the fark is out there to make this "close" for Romney, as people keep trying to say?

That's because minorities are not allowed to vote.

I'm not good at looking at the big picture, so bear with me.

1. The media (yeah yeah). It's so much more "interesting" to say that things are SO close. So exciting! Stay tuned!
2. Crazy rightwingers. There seem to be a fark of a lot of them.
3. Less crazy rightleaners? Here's where I'm lost. I wouldn't piss on Romney if he were on fire, and yet I'm almost certain that my well-meaning fairly intelligent co-worker is going to vote for him. And I don't know WHY. Is it Obama WharGarbl? He doesn't seem stupid enough to believe that. Is it wedge issues? Could be. And yet... I keep hearing rightleaners talk about how incredibly spendthrift Obama is and I just don't see the evidence of that... So... Are people buying into the spin?

Lord_Baull: What's the uptick on BIPARTISAN tea party voters for Obama?


I imagine not alot, since he's increased taxes more than all other US Presidents (and most European ones) combined. If he can't even abide by their central tenet, he's f*cked.
 
2012-08-23 11:45:16 AM
Remember when black people were going to flee from Obama because he came out in favor of marriage equality? That was a fun day.
 
2012-08-23 11:45:18 AM
For some reason he isn't appealing to the blah voters.
 
2012-08-23 11:46:18 AM
What we need now is to have a Rassmussen poll to be linked. I think they released and updated one about the Akin race.
 
2012-08-23 11:46:36 AM
If it is that high, the pollsters must be counting voters like this guy:

If there are still any black voters out there thinking of voting for Rmoney you should go read up on how Mormons feel about you dark-skinned folks. Spelled out very clearly in the book of Mormon.

Dusk-You-n-Me: Remember when black people were going to flee from Obama because he came out in favor of marriage equality? That was a fun day.


Well, don't forget about that 6% of undecided (or just not counted in the poll, I should say). They either are a legitimate threat or they had better things to do than respond to a rubber stamp poll.

Less than zero. See? There's your voting fraud, whiny libtard crybabies.
 
2012-08-23 11:47:52 AM

consider this: Obama could be caught stealing millions of dollars from the country and he'd still have the support of the majority of blacks.


Yeah dude like totally.

2012-08-23 11:47:59 AM
My headline was just: Get it?
 
2012-08-23 11:48:26 AM

consider this: Mikey1969: I don't get this. 0% among Blacks, 28%(vs 68%) among Latinos. Who the fark is out there to make this "close" for Romney, as people keep trying to say?

the 75% of the population that isn't black or Hispanic?


Uh, per the 2010 Census, Blacks and Hispanics make up almost 30% of the population. That's not including other non-Whites (Whites were down to almost 60%). Also, some Latino and Hispanic people identify as "White" on the Census. Also add to that the fact that the percentage of the US population that identifies as "White" has been on the decline for quite a while now, and the 2010 numbers are no longer valid.

So no. 75% of the population isn't non-Black and non-Hispanic. It's actually less than 70%, with even more points lost due to categorization issues.

Feeling lonely yet?

No no no, God changed his mind. It's cool now.
