Romney leads Obama 16% among whites enough to win the election
The Examiner ^ | August 30, 2012 | Sahit Muja

Posted on 08/30/2012 7:26:55 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

All latest election 2012 polls show Mitt Romney lead Obama average 16%. Gallup Romney 55% Obama 38%, CNN Romney 56 vs Obana 40% and NBC and WSJ Romney 55% vs Obama 40%.

The overwhelming majority of voters in The US are white which accounting for 72 percent of all people living in the United States.

Romney and GOP is offering solutions, Romney gain huge support among white voters after Joe Biden (D) playing the race card last week, stating "They'll put y'all in chains".

The speakers at GOP convention last night were terrific. The GOP is taking the high road by talking about the big issues and offering solutions rather than distractions.

The tone and the quality of the GOP convention will be a a stark contrast to the negativity, anger and extremism that will be in display in Charlotte NC next week.

I'm more interested in substance than style. Look where all of his flowery speeches have gotten us? We're worse off than we were four years ago, and are on the verge of a triple dip recession. Keep the pretty speeches and give me action to fixing the problems!.

Obama is all about rhetoric, but has yet to implement anything of substance to improve the economy.

Ryan's speech set forth the clearest distinctions between those who believe in free people and free markets and those who believe in central planning and redistribution.

Unfortunately, after 4 years of the "drip-drip" of leftist propaganda in schools, in the legacy media, and in Washington, all too many of our citizens are being manipulated, and have delegated their powers of reasoning to people they falsely call their "leaders," but who are in fact our "employees."

It's time to call out the left for advancing false narratives...

I’ve read that Romney will need to win at least 60% of the white vote to win. McCain won 55% and still lost. The country has turned more non-white since then and will continue to at a faster and faster pace.

Will the media say “Obama has a white problem?”

I’m not sure that math still works. 55% of 72% of voters is only 39.6%. If non-white voters vote at the same rate as white voters, we need 40% of the other 28% non-white voters to get to 50.8%. I don’t think there’s any polling that has us that high among non-white voters, so we need a much higher turnout if we only get 55% of all whites.

it’s probably also enough for a sizable riot or two in a couple of major US cities on election night — after the MSM inflames the passions of the gullible by insisting that white folks voting for a white guy is “racist”.

it will happen. the preview was chris matthews and his “you’re garbage” comment.

That’s my position.

Don’t care what the polls say.

We are behind, until we win.

Jobs not done and we can not claim victory until every Rat and Rino are voted out and replaced with conservatives that restore our country to its intended state.

Until then our job is not done.

Mitt won’t do a thing to help the above. So we need to work down ticket and hold Mitts feet to the fire. (or veto proof conservative majorities in the house and senate would work too. I can dream right?)

You are comparing apples and oranges. Obama got 43% of white vote. The above poll shows him only getting 38%. That’s a 5 point decrease.

The undecided usually break against incumbent.

Obama is in trouble.

Nonwhites should seriously question their reasoning for pulling the Obama lever on election day. Economics are getting worse for everybody and there is no reason that believe four more years this administration will reverse the trend. Pulling that lever means the majority will more likely take a bigger hit than the minorities and that is exactly why is pulled with enthusaium. Never mind the the fact that everybody loses in the long run.

Black youth unemployment has been 50% for some time now. Think about what that means. Every OTHER black youngster is unemployed.

from 2000 to 2010 the White population has changed from 77.1% to 74.8% so your looking at a 2.3% change which isn’t very significant unless it comes down to a horse race.

Incorrect. Mitt buys us 4 years to rid us of the Rats and the RINOs.

If Zero wins. . . .game over. . .

Redistribution. Spread it around. For some to have more others have to give up.

All that is Black Liberation Theology. Wealth of whitey is laid up for the black folks.

Also shows a disbelief in wealth creation and expansion. Rising tide raising all boats.

Rats instead believe in a finite amount of wealth to be controlled by the government and distributed as they see fit. Richest counties in America are the DC suburbs.

Obama may be in trouble, but I think Romney will need 60% of the white vote to win.

Hmmmm. I keep reading the white population is 72% now. Also, the older the age group, the more white it is. The younger the age group the nore non-white it is. So you have a lot of old whites who will die relatively soon and will not be having kids, and a younger non-white population that is going to be around and probably will have kids. That means the non-white population is going to start growing at a faster and faster rate.

uhh ya.. that is what I said.

Mitt won’t help so we have to KEEP working to rid our selfs of the rats/rino’s. Mitt would be one of those.

But I’ll take a rino over a rat in this case.

I agree with your analysis of the non-whites being younger and multiplying. This is intentional by those who tell us to “celebrate diversity”. In the last few months I’ve seen covered Muslim women and their kids in my mostly white upper middle class neighborhood and this is happening with increasing frequency. The kids are like seeds meant to change our country.

How did these people get here? Who is supporting them? The whole thing makes me feel helpless and very angry.

The above poll has Obama with 38% with 7% undecided. If the undecided go 38% for Obama then Obama would get 40.7% and Romney would get 59.3%.

By your own standard, Obama is in trouble with less than 1% margin.

All that is Black Liberation Theology.

Or Any Liberation Theology. "Hey kids,this Economics and Business Science is really hard to teach and even harder to learn. Even if you learned it there is no guarantee you can make a go of it. So we are going to take up this new religion. Now open your books to Chapter One,-- Social Justice."

So you get to change their traditional values.

Do not forget about turnout. You can’t assume that only 72% of the electorate will be white. You have to take into account that in 2008 non-whites had a higher than usual turnout. Look for a white turnout between 75% and 76%. If Romney get between 59% and 61% of the white vote he will win.

The 72% includes people under 18. Since comparatively White have less children on average, the proportion of voting-age for White should be larger a little bit than that number. Then, of course, there is also the issue of turn out.

Different dynamics. Ratios take more from Obama and I believe the minority vote will swing at least 5-7% away from Obama too. Should be a shoo-in if not an actual landslide.

That’s before Romey’s speech last night. I’ll be surprised if all his numbers don’t go up now, especially among white women.

Yes, it is possible that Obama won’t do as well with the non-white vote as he did in 2008.
