Skip to comments.Obama won’t lose Latinos and Blacks because of gay marriage

One key point conservatives made in todays story about President Obama backing same sex marriage is that it would drive away conservative Latino and African-American voters. Thats what folks like conservative activist Gary Marx told us.
That possibility is wildly unlikely, said Gary Segura, professor of American Politics and Chicano Studies at Stanford University and a principal in the polling firm Latino Decisions.
While many Latinos are Catholic, a religion which does not condone same sex marriage, Segura said Latinos rarely let their religious beliefs steer their votes.

Obama would not lose the black vote if he started to randomly shoot black people on TV.
I’ve never seen such blind allegence.
Of course not. Did Jim Jones lose sheep because he spiked the koolaid?
I’ll bet he loses some Latinos.
I saw the source and cracked up. :-)
Of course not. Latino “Catholics,” Black “chrstians,” and wealthy white homosexuals are one big happy family united by thousands of years of oppression by trailer-dwelling rednecks!
Well, yeah, he did.

Well, I don’t think blacks will vote in any numbers for romney, but I think this will have a HUGE impact on the black vote. They just won’t bother.
Hmmmm. I was just talking to a coworker (Republican) today whose parents are Hispanic (Conservative). She said Obama is the first DemocRAT presidential candidate that they didn’t voted for. She went on to say that they are so upset with Barry’s policies that they are going to work against his reelection this time. I think the ‘RATS may be counting chickens that they don’t even have eggs for.
Its not that they would vote for a Republican its that they may not vote at all because of this. He has a 98% block that may now under-produce.
They are right, he is not losing anyone over this because (excepting the black vote) he has already lost them. Nobody, NO, BODY, gives two hoots and a holler about gay marriage.
Well he might not “lose” them in the sense that they will vote for Romney, but I could see some just not coming out to vote because of it. I don’t see any scenario where he could match his 2008 turnout.
Not my recollection, the sheep all followed the judas goat to their demise. None went missing though many went dead. AA
They were fired up in 2008. The large turnout was obama’s friend.
They will simply sit this one out because of this and other reasons.
Obama’s main challenge this time is not to get people to choose him over Romney. Rather, it will be to get them to bother to vote at all.
They won’t vote for Romney, but they may well sit it out, particularly if the GOP is smart enough to drive home the message that Obama has done nothing but make their lives harder.
He gained campaign money but lost votes.
>> Did Jim Jones lose sheep because he spiked the koolaid? Well, yeah, he did.
Which reminds me: do you know why so few comedians include Jim Jones “Jonestown” jokes in their acts?
Ive never seen such blind allegence.
They’ve been properly conditioned.
Most have been used and abused and they can’t feel the pain.
It’s beyond disgusting.
There’s NOTHING barry could do to lose the negro vote. NOTHING!
