Romney is winning the white vote by a lot (Most since Ronald Reagan)
Washington Post ^ | 10/18/2012 | Aaron Blake

Political analysts (including The Fix) spend a good bit of time these days talking about important voter groups — Latino voters and female voters, in particular.

But all of the focus on these groups has obfuscated one fact: Mitt Romney is performing very, very well among white voters. And in fact, most recent polls show him winning the white vote by more than any GOP presidential candidate since Ronald Reagan.

You know, “shakin hands and kisssin babies” is part of the job. But Romney looks like he truly loves it and truly loves America.

Nothing better than kissing a baby’s head. I love it.

But, it really helps when the opponent is a lying, two-headed, slithering snake.

GOOD.

The Left can comfort itself with babbling about demographic changes, but the fact of the matter is, when Republicans win a larger than average share of the white vote, they win big.

This is the 800 pound gorilla that no one in the media wants to talk about——the white vote——too politically incorrect to discuss in polite company. Fact is in 2010 mideterm elections GOP congressional and senate candidates won about 62% of the white vote and netted 63 House seats and six US Senate seats. Most polls I’ve seen lately show Obama drawing only in the low 30s of the white vote. Assuming these trends are correct and there is carry over from 2010, we are looking at a landslide.

I’m sick and tired of having “you’re racist!” shoved down my throat while I pay $4 for gas, get hammered at the grocery store while watching this country disintegrate.

Too bad we didn’t get a black conservative for POTUS - it could have really helped race relations - but wishful thinking is a waste of time.

Exactly. Steve Sailer has studied and written on this in depth. Despite the efforts of the Republican and Dhimm elites to flood our country with third-worlders, Republicans can still win every time by expressly going after the white vote. Someone as dumb as McCain would not understand that, of course.

Too many women let themselves be used and manipulated. Hugh Hefner and co-horts enticed so many women to willingly turn themselves into total whores - women who go against their very nature to nurture a family - and they wonder why they’re not fulfilled???

Not sure why but I never fell for that - traditional family values I guess. But the rat party is doing it’s best to destroy those in favor of a life on the dole - and children only for the weird. Of course the reduced traditional population will just speed up the muslim takeover since they’re out producing us. Maybe this is Obama’s end game all along?

We might get our chance in 2020 when Senator West from Florida runs (or is at least on the Ryan/West ticket).

If whites were ever actually referred to as a voting bloc, it would be somehow racist.

Obama racially divided the country and then took sides.
No one but himself to blame for this.

True - and I wish conservatives would just acknowledge it, instead of kowtowing to the meme that says that admitting that white people vote for your party means you're racist.

Even here on FR, Steve Sailor is persona non grata, because JimRob and the mods are deathly afraid of anything having to do with race issues.

They should be afraid and so should we. If FR gets labeled as a hate group and it sticks, it will be closed down. Lawsuits will follow.

Besides, there are sites I visit that allow any sort of race or religion comment that I can ignore, but I would never send anyone else there as the comments, especially the anti-Jewish ones, are horrid regurgitations of all the old *own the world* libels, courtesy of the Paultard brigade plus a few StormFronters.

I understand what you’re saying and don’t disagree. However, I don’t think there’s cause to be quite so skittish about people merely applying demographics to elections, etc. We can’t let the Left control the determination of what is racist and what isn’t.

I am sure that just makes us all “racist.”
Not that I care any more...

Indeed, it’s not unreasonable to think that Romney could win 60 percent or more of white voters this year.

I'll go with more. The GOP got 60 percent of white voters in 2010 in the average Congressional District. That was a first. Things have not gotten better.

This tells me more “whites” (and blacks/hispanics for that matter) are NOW USING their brains, and maybe even getting research via the Internet, instead of just the nightly news.

When the printing press was invented...the knowledge and those with knowledge of the world changed. The Internet is accomplishing the same thing. We're just too close to it, to see the actual results of what is happening to ALL facets of the population.
