President Barack Obama and Republican rival Mitt Romney are working feverishly for an increasingly smaller but crucial slice of the electorate white, working-class voters.
These clock-punching voters from Iowa's tiny manufacturing cities to Virginia coal country to pockets of Ohio reliant on the auto industry are considered the potential tipping point in battleground states that will decide the winner on Nov. 6. These voters are also critical to turning less competitive states such as Michigan into suddenly swing states in the final stretch.
Romney is trying to expand what polls show is an advantage for the Republican while Obama hopes to narrow the gap...

After seeing the zoo in Charlotte, why would any working class White man vote Democrat? Such a man would be too stupid to find the polling place.
They broke for Reagan in the past. They support national defense and economic primacy. They are Romney’s to lose, and he would probably have to work at that.
Here's a hint A/P; Obama ain't gonna win coal country.
Any white person who would vote for Obama is either mentally incompetent or a self loathing waste of life.
Not to mention Ohio coal country, Pensylvania coal country, West Virginia coal country, Wyoming coal country, etc etc. Idiot Boy the Usurper signed his political death warrant when he declared war on King Coal. And on America, in the process.
The Future of the Obama CoalitionBy THOMAS B. EDSALL, New York Times, November 27, 2011, 11:34 pm
"For decades, Democrats have suffered continuous and increasingly severe losses among white voters. But preparations by Democratic operatives for the 2012 election make it clear for the first time that the party will explicitly abandon the white working class.
All pretense of trying to win a majority of the white working class has been effectively jettisoned in favor of cementing a center-left coalition."
“Romney, Obama in battle for working-class whites”
It may seem illogical, but I sense that the “working-class” whites are considerably wiser to Obama than are the over-educated white elites...
No they are not.
Romney and Obama should not be in any battle for votes. Obama is a sorry excuse for a President that has severly damaged this nation. Anyone still voting for him is either a racist or has their head stuck up their rectum.

Affirmative action is designed to cripple whites’ ability to earn a living (and it is working well); there was only so long the Dems could hope to hang on to those voters, many of whom fled during Clinton’s PC presidency. The white majority is being destroyed because they can’t afford to raise families while others do so with reckless abandon (paid for by taxpayers).
Obama’s speeches give the impression that there are no whites left in this country; it is an eerie precursor to what will be routine (and accurate) in 10 years.
