If these numbers are accurate, than this is astounding. In the North Carolina poll released Tuesday, Obama got 76 percent of the African-American vote, to Romney's 20 percent.
Much like North Carolina, Obama garnered the vast majority of African-American support in Nevada in the 2008 election. He received 94 percent to John McCain's 5 percent.

Hence, he is campaigning in black barbershops.
Yup and Obama’s October surprise is a big fat raise in all his chilldrens allowances
To be more accurate he lost the support of Thinking African Americans.
So he’s lost OJ’s support?
I agree with you - for the ones that actually go to the polls. But just think of how many will simply stay home and not vote because of the lack of support.
Sounds like head fake to me. What to look for on election day is what percent of African-American voters go to the polls because I am sure Obama will get his 99.9%.

They will if they feel motivated to show up.
But if they see him as the clown that he is, they will just sit it out.
The black subculture is very macho, same with latinos. This is no surprise at all. How it pans out next November remains to be seen, but it is looking like many will just stay home.
I wouldn’t be so sure. I know blacks who oppose him and others who have no intention of voting.
They will all get a fun bus ride and some free sneakers and coupons to Popeyes chicken for the field trip too the voting booth count on it
Dems people? Will still vote for dey man.
Thick or thin, he black.
AND its NOT racism in full regalia.
Flippin alien Zebra. I’ll bet Zebra’s are insulted, he gives zebras a bad name!
They’ll either vote for him or stay home, play XBox and eat Skittles.
