On Election Day itís white voters vs. everyone else
The Grio at NBC News ^ | October 25, 2012 | David A. Love

Looking at the polls, this presidential election season is poised to give birth to the most racially polarized electorate in U.S. history.

Whites are backing Mitt Romney in historic numbers, while Obama is garnering historic levels of support among blacks, Latinos and Asians.

While the latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll has the president in a dead heat with his GOP opponent, recent surveys show wide swings in support based on race. In other words, it looks like white voters versus everyone else.

Looking at a composite of polls, Obama’s white support averages 37.9 percent, ranging from 35 percent to 41 percent—the share of white support he enjoyed in 2008. Meanwhile, Romney’s portion of the white electorate is somewhere between 53 and 59 percent—20 points higher than Obama in four major polls— if these figures are to be believed.

Meanwhile, among voters of color in general, the President has close to 80 percent support. With African-Americans, support is nearly exclusively in the Obama column at around 95 percent, the share he received in 2008.

Latinos favor the president by a 3-to-1 margin, with Obama maintaining a 74 percent to 26 percent lead, according to LD Vote Predict projections. In a tight race, turnout in the growing Hispanic population is key, though they are underrepresented in the electorate.

Similarly, Americans of Asian descent, now surpassing Latinos as the fastest growing immigrant group, prefer President Obama by an increasingly wide margin.

According to the National Asian American Survey, likely voters of Asian descent back Obama by a 50 to 19 percent margin, with 30 percent of voters undecided...

Blacks vote in local elections almost exclusively for black Democrats. They have the race problem.

If I read these Journolistas and their term “dead heat” one more time, I’m going to projectile hurl.

Give me a physical break!

Whites against the world...trying to hold it down and back and exploit it.

You’d think after awhile, brighter people would catch a clue.

Actually, the brighter people do, and they ain’t all white, by a longshot.

Already setting up the racism excuse for the Kenyan’s loss — I’ll take it.

It is totally bogus, but I’ll take it.

Yup, me too. I don’t give a sh*t anyways. As long as Klownie the Kenyan is out, you can call me “super duper racist dude”, and watch me LOL at your face as the 4 years of darkness is finally over.

Asians are stupid to support democrats, as are the Jews. Anybody productive should not support that party in any way.

Not entirely. Everywhere I go, I run into black people who are not voting for Obama. Just met another today--a mid-fifties black woman struck up a conversation with me in a suburban box store. As we chatted, we realized that we had a great deal in common. Yes, she is a Romney voter.

Even in 2008 it was happening. On Inauguration Day, 2009, some employees at my office requested that a TV be turned on briefly so that they could see the inauguration. "It's an historic event," they said. "It's important."

One of the managers, a young black woman in her thirties, turned to them with flashing eyes. "Maybe to you," she said sharply. "Not to everybody. Not to me."

She is very far from being alone. I have several conservative black friends, and they hate Obama worse than I do.

These race-baiting journalists keep turning up the heat, but the kitchen door’s locked, so once it’s too hot for them, there’s nowhere for them to go . . .

If this is true, I'm really disappointed in the Asians.

They generally have higher IQ's.

and don’t misunderstand mitt ain’t perfect and i’d have rather had a different candidate, but he isn’t a devout socialist intent on continuing to economically disassemble this country. the socialist in the white house HAS to go. and if mitt ain’t cutting it in his term, he’s going to go, too.

“If this is true, I’m really disappointed in the Asians.

That is a myth. They are simply more serious about education. The “smartest” Asian kid in my school when I was a kid couldn’t find his way out of a paper sack, unless instructions were written in a book.

At any rate, I am surprised at Asians being for Obastard, because every family I have ever known owned small businesses and worked their asses off for it.

Mexicans being for Obummer also surprises me because I have never detected any love between Mexicans and blacks.

So why do you post garbage like this ?

from the article:

“the Republican Party has become a captive of its most extremist wing, and has made a conscious decision to go for broke and consolidate the white working-class vote. This includes Romney’s claims that Obama removed welfare work requirements to “shore up his base,” a thinly-veiled reference to the Reagan-era black “welfare queen” who made $150,000 through government checks she did not deserve.

Republicans have doubled down on intolerance, xenophobia, and the shunning of racial diversity as a winning strategy. Blacks, Latinos, Arabs, Muslims and others need not apply—or vote, for that matter. They are not part of a winning Republican strategy.

Oh my goodness, I fear for your salvation.

Your only hope is to immediately check yourself into a reeducation camp conveniently located by the government near your home. There you will will be brought to understand that truth is no defense to the making of such grotesqueries.

Please do not be alarmed, your enlightenment will be gentle. Our facilitators are very experienced and have never lost the patient yet. After all, your enlightenment is in your hands entirely as expressed in our motto:

Submission makes free

Be not anxious, waterboarding is rarely resorted to, it is not really torture if done to our own, and it is far more benign than chemotherapy or shock treatment. You will be released back into the general population as soon as our federal inspectors certify that your condition is in remission-of course, you are never really cured as this malady is liable to reappear at any time, especially before elections.

I wish you a speedy, thorough and certifiable recovery in time for you to celebrate the winter solstice with your family.

Kindly report to your local reeducation center before election day to avoid embarrassing and tedious apprehension by the designated authorities.

Your friend,

Chief, Attitude Adjustment Division of Homeland Security

More likely it’s a Half-White/Half-Kenyan voter vs. everyone else.

I don’t think a single non-White-male demographic is more behind him this go around. He done lost his shine.

...while Obama is garnering historic levels of support among blacks, Latinos and Asians.

This is a lie on its face. Blacks typically vote Democrat in the 95% range or so, but for Obama, in 2008, I wouldn't be surprised if it was more like 98% or even 99%. How then can Obama, this time around, have "historic levels" of black support as compared to 2008? Mathematically, that is impossible, therefore, the author is full of sh*t. And that is not taking into account the fact that many blacks have been turned off to Obama due to his incompetence, his stance on gay marriage, and the fact that this won't be a historic first anymore.

They voted for Obama because he was not white. It's that simple. And I say that as someone who has a number of friends and acquaintances in the local Mexican/Mexican-American community. The fact is that a lot of resentment toward white people that blacks and Mexicans feel is taught to them from birth. Blacks are taught that everything is whitey's fault because of slavery and racism, and Mexicans (the illegal immigrant kind) are taught that el gringo stole all of the land from the pobres mexicanos, especially the parts of the land with all of the paved roads.

When obama won, we were all socialists.

When Romney wins, we'll all be "White Voters".
