Skip to comments.The White Romney Vote: Based on Race? (Cover keyboard & monitor before reading)

Blacks are accused of backing Obama out of racial loyalty, but white GOP voters get a pass.
Little about the GOP candidate appeared to qualify him for the White House as he sweated freely over foreign-policy debate questions Monday night. Clearly ill-suited to be commander in chief, Mitt Romney fidgeted in his chair, fudged his Afghanistan position and, in the cross talk over Iraq, seemed on the verge of proffering another $10,000 bet on whether his position had changed.
Despite losing two of three debates, Romney has going for him a poll-obsessed media keen on a close race sustaining their $2.5 billion flow of TV ads. Plus, he can count on reflexive support from the dominant population backing his party. And what exactly is the makeup of the GOP?
Alas, in this year of our Lord 2012, the Republican Party structurally is 97.9 percent non-African American, fielding only 47 blacks among the 4,411 delegates at its Tampa convention!
With blacks constituting some 13 percent of the electorate, the GOP, win or lose, is likely to register a popular vote that is 99.5 percent non-African American. And this near lily-white party operates in a diverse republic -- with a black president, who attracted 43 percent of the white vote in '08.
The pattern is no accident, for the GOP has been heading this way since President Johnson signed the 1965 Voting Rights Act...

Yeah, of course. Never mind that he's an America hating Marxist and a complete failure and pathological LIAR, who's an unfit CIC!
Les Payne is going to be feeling More Payne on November 7th. The commie bigot.
It’s just ignorance on display.
Les Payne used to work at Newsday. He got an affirmative action Pulitzer long before Obama got his affirmative action Nobel.
I guess we should have been proud about Obama’s stink eye stares, rude interrupting and not being able to open his mouth without a lie stumbling out.,oh yea that was mighty presidential man.
Bingo!...but its sure hard to keep your mouth shut sometimes...
If the Republican Party is 97% non-Black, then whose fault is that? It’s not as if the Republicans refuse to let blacks join the party nor is there any discrimination in choosing delegates. The REAL question should be, “Why are Blacks 97% Democrat?”. It’s kinda funny that this question never seems to get asked.
Yep, and he’s just so dang cool with his cursing about his opponent and jive talk to his idiot audiences.
Oh, and let’s not forget his presidential bow to that Saudi king...
I’m thinking he will feel Major Payne....sorry I couldn’t help myself
What Payne-in-the-ass does not appear to mention is that Black voters are more likely to vote based on race than the average White voter.
les payne’s parents must have had a warped sense of humor and les payne is just warped period. les payne? Seriously? Wonder if he has a sister named More.
“Are whites voting against Obama chiefly because he’s black?”
No, not exactly... He’s an afirmitave action president with no qualifications except that he IS black. Well. half black...
If only 60% or so of Whites are voting for the White GOP candidate...and 97% of Blacks are voting for the Black Democrat candidate...logic would tell me that Blacks are the racists..as their pct of votes goes higher for the candidate of their race
Of course, it is a waste for the GOP to go after minority/race votes...because the overall pct of Blacks and Hispanics that vote is still quite low....compared to Whites
Stick a sock in it, Les Payne.
We have in Obama easily the most leftist president in American history, and the idiots in the Dem Party think if he were white, millions of conservatives would vote for him over Romney. I don’t know how someone gets to be that stupid.
‘The Root’ now there’s a non racial source for ya!
