Has Obama lost white America?
WorldNetDaily ^ | 01/21/10 | Patrick J. Buchanan

Posted on 01/22/2010 12:24:29 PM PST by crosshairs

If Republicans will study the returns from Massachusetts, then review the returns from Virginia and New Jersey, light will fall upon the path to victory over Barack Obama in 2012.

Obama defeated John McCain by winning the black vote 24 to 1, the Hispanic vote 2 to 1 and taking a larger share of the white vote, 44 percent, than did John Kerry or Al Gore. As the white vote was three-fourths of the national turnout, Obama coasted to victory.

Now consider Massachusetts. In the 2008 election, no less than 79 percent of the voters were white, and Obama carried them by 20 points, winning the state 62 to 36.

How did Scott Brown turn that 26-point deficit into a 6-point victory? By winning the white vote as massively as did Obama. While there are no exit polls to prove it, we do have exit polls from Virginia and New Jersey, which tend to corroborate it.

It's not too late to rescue the nation! Read how in "Save America Now! The New Revolution to Save Freedom and Liberty"

Bob McDonnell won the Virginia governor's race by 17, while McCain lost Virginia by 6. As McDonnell did equally poorly with African-Americans, losing the black vote 90 to 9, while McCain's lost it 92 to 8, what explains his Virginia landslide?

The white vote. McDonnell won Virginia's white vote 68 to 32, though his opponent was a downstate Democrat more conservative than the Northern Virginia candidates he beat in the primary.

In New Jersey, same story. McCain won 8 percent of the black vote. Gov. Chris Christie won 8 percent of the black vote. How did Christie turn a McCain loss of New Jersey by 16 points into a 5-point victory?

Whites are the swing vote, though that might be too generous because of the size of the vote numbers they have.

What they failed to say is that Obama had greater percentages of the blacks and hispanic because of illegal voting!

It’s repudiation of Socialism, Congress, and Obama’s agenda.

It’s not his color nor ‘dialect’ that’s being rejected.

I do think that Pat is bright, but sometimes he demonstrates a clumsiness that is clearly surmountable, and makes a lot of folks look bad.

That said, In South eastern Massachusetts the other day, Scott Brown won a race.

In Brockton and Randolph Brown lost, clearly.

Brockton & Randolph have large black communities.

Scott Brown won every other community in the greater Brockton area.

Clearly there is racism in America, but I submit, that it is not coming from white America.

Many blacks vote mindlessly for Democrats.

That fact, baffles me. I simply do not grok it.

It is worth noting that whites are the one group for which ethnic solidarity is not a major, widespread factor in voting, unlike for minorities like blacks and hispanics.

With the liberal multicultural balkanization of the nation, the media-academic focus on skin color as the defining characteristic of a person and whites becoming a minority in the next generation, it would not be suprising to see the dominant political dynamic become race-loyalty on the part of all ethnic groups.

Thanks, liberals, for f’ing up the country.

You may be correct. She looks terribly aged & miserable as SOSUS. Bill is getting more press running around, flying off to Haiti and hobnobbing with the Bushes.

As for the *white vote* focus of this thread - certainly many Dems wanting to be *color blind* went totally blind, deaf and dumb embracing the first less white president. They are beginning to open their eyes and realizing he is worse than John Kerry, Mike Dukakis, Walter Mondale or Al Gore and not near as cuddly as Bill Clinton.

Whites will never be the minority in this country.

The 2000 census created the race “hispanics” in order to among other things give the perception that whites would soon be the minority. But the FACT is, more than half of hispanics self identify as white.

People who are smart enough to support Allen West are not distracted by skin color. As for the swing-vote sheeple, once they hear a few sentences from West, they will know they are not confronted with another Zero.

My sister is raising her bi-racial granddaughter. The girl is quite upset with Zer0 for divorcing himself from his "whiteness." (tortured sentence, but you know what I mean) I'm told that she's in the process of composing a letter to call him to task for this. I told my sister that I expect a copy when the kid sends it off.

Obama only won 44% of the white vote, so he never “had” white America. Clearly, many of the 44% are now waking up and each percentage that shifts presents a monumental downturn in his electability, just by the sheer fact that 74% of voters are white.

Over half of hispanics self identify at white, so in reality the white population is still 80%+

I’ve read that 80% of “Hispanics” self identify as white.

In fact, my two sister-in-laws - a Dominican but US born and a Columbian by birth - are both pretty darn white looking to me also!

The cool thing is that my Columbia born SIS is now a US citizen (and her mom too) by way of the old fashioned way, meaning, they earned it!

That's a bit like blaming Reagan for the arms race, the Soviets and their left wing fellow travelers in the West preferred it when the Soviets were the only ones racing. The Democrats have been waging race war since the seventies, fighting back is not starting a race war. The left started the race war long ago, and if the GOP knows where its bread is buttered it'll all start sticking up for those who actually vote Republican, rather than pandering to those who don't.

The long-range prospects for election of conservatives/Republicans do not lend optimism when evolving demographics are resulting in whites being a minority nationally, which has already occured in such populous states such as California.

I think white guilt was the swing vote, and many white Obama voters are getting over their guilt after a year of Obama policies.

Pat's on a wild goose chase here, IMO. Obama won because McCain suppressed the GOP vote. Here are some approximate total vote figures.

2008 - 125 000 000
2004 - 121 000 000
2000 - 104 000 000

Enforce immigration laws and that won't happen. "Evolving demographics" includes 500,000 - 1,000,000 illegals per year, most all Hispanic.

http://www.infoplease.com/us/government/presidential-election-vote-summary.html

I used same source for 2000 and 2004 results.

The source you cited agreed with infoplease 2004 results, and had no comparable listing for 2000.

Interesting rant. Since minorities seem to be incapable of seeing the horrible things being done to America and the economy — and are suffering more than whites from the crazy policies in Washington — what does this say about them? Are they so attached to Obama because of his race they cannot even see their own best interests?
