The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows Mitt Romney attracting 47% of the vote, while President Obama earns support from 44%. Five percent (5%) prefer some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided.

Romney has a 20-point advantage among white voters. Obama is supported by 91% of black voters and 57% of other minority voters.

You are absolutely correct. When 91% of blacks support a total disaster like Obama, the only explanation is that they are obviously RACIST.

McCain won white voters by 55-43 over Obama. I read one analysis that said that Romney needs 61% of whites to win:

The white margin to watch: 61-39. That’s the rough break-even point. Obama likely needs more than 39 percent of whites to assure re-election. Romney likely needs at least 61 percent of whites to assure Obama’s defeat (or 60.5 in some scenarios). These are estimates based on an electorate that matches the diversity of 2008 or is slightly less white. It presumes the Electoral College outcome does not diverge from the winner of the popular vote (loose talk aside, it’s only happened four times in U.S. history).

Obama's White Support Is Too Low to Win

I wonder what percentage of blacks hate what percentage of whites? I wonder what percentage of whites hate what percentage of blacks. I wonder what percentage of rationality each group utilizes in their assessments? I wonder whether blacks or whites are more honest in their declarations.

Me? I love all races equally. The only difference in race is superficial. I was told that in elementary school and no one has been allowed to say differently since.

Hopefully this indicates the white guilt factor is gone.

ANY white person who would vote for this guy at this point needs medical care.

OK, except for the Occupiers, but any working white person, low, high, or in the middle, needs to know Obama pretty much hates them. Yeah, he hates us, even though his mom was white.

Check the new WHI interview. Internal polls are totally panicking the Obama campaign.

When most whites support Romney, it’s racist.

But when 97% of blacks support obama, it’s just fine.

They’ve used the “racist” angle so much it doesn’t have the sting it used to have. And that’s too bad.

It’s more of a blind, “he’s one of us” thing.

That’s why there are neighborhood troubles.
When Jay’von the crack dealer gets shot they wig out because he was one of us.
Everybody knew he was a turd but, you didn’t have to kill him.

I just happened here in S Dallas last week.

Obama did himself in with the black racist display he put on in an effort to divide and conquer Americans by race.

Any white who voted for him thinking he’d overcome racial division, just got kicked in the head directly by the community organizer.

Leftists are so full of hate, they can’t keep up the happy face for long. Hopefully more Jewish Americans will wake up, too.

I understand why they think they have to do it...and wish no criticism of the pollsters BUT I am sure sick and tired of hearing how various racial or ethnic subgroups poll for Candidate Zero or Candidate R or Candidate X.
At one time we were, as a society, pretty much dedicated to treating every person as an equal. At least that was the general consensus. Now, especially under the current regime, we are being torn about, Balkanized.
This is one of the many reasons why our country is sliding into the dumpster.
Is there ANY way the politicians and pollsters can PLEASE stop dividing us by race or ethnicity or whatever?

55-57 percent of white vote wins it

Depending on minority turn out

Hopefully the small but crucial mostly White states of NH and Iowa go Republican.

As I recall, Clinton got 93% of black vote (although Zero turned out more actual numbers) . Kerry also turned out a higher percent.

I can’t access the subscriber side; what is Romney’s white percentage in this (not just his percent lead over Zero)?

“Add 5% more for the Bradley Effect”

I guess the complete disproving of the “Bradley Effect” theory in 2008 wasn`t enough, huh? It doesn`t exist.

Actually, the same type of reasoning but opposite effect for the squish voter. It goes something like this in the mind’s of a rationalizing squish: I know he’s not qualified but what the heck, we can make history here by voting for Obama. Now I feel better. It makes me feel good! I won’t feel guilt. Yippee. If you recall in 2008, about every two weeks like clockwork, Obama played the race card in some form or fashion.

The feeling “white guilt voter” lying to pollsters could be in play for 2012.

Well, I do not buy the Bradley Effect. That was disproven in 08. I DO buy that the pollsters are turning cartwheels to create vastly inflated Dem samples to show Zero doing ok.

I don't know if it can be disprovable or completely provable or can it be accurately measured, but I DO think it's a distinct possibility.

I DO buy that the pollsters are turning cartwheels to create vastly inflated Dem samples to show Zero doing ok.

I agree. Now, this is measurable as we see in the oversampling of Dems and Independent voters in the AP and NBC/Wall Street polls

depends on who one reads on this

and there is not much on this...I would Google “ Buchanan, White Vote, 55% or 57%”..for starters to see

Human Events, VDare, Locust, and other sites some of which are not in favor here

mainstream media and I imagine..ahem...faculty...don’t spend a lot of time pining for how whites will vote

they are just pining for the day when how whites vote doesn’t much matter

Bush II got 58% in 2004 and won handily with nearly 4% more popular vote overall

again it depends on minority turnout and Dem enthusiasm
