Mitt Romney won white voters by 20 points in todays presidential election, according to exit polls, which is the same margin that Ronald Reagan won that demographic by in his 1980 landslide over Jimmy Carter. But given that white voters are a smaller percentage of the electorate these days and hes doing poorly among minority voters, Romney is on the cusp of losing the election. In 1980, Reagan won white voters 56 percent to 36 percent, with third party candidate John Anderson taking 8 percent of the vote. He ended up beating Carter by 10 points and winning 44 states.
Romney has won white voters by the same 20-point margin, 59 percent to 39 percent. But the big difference is that in 1980, whites were 88 percent of the electorate, whereas in this election, they were just 73 percent.
So we can either fear that and rue our demise or look for like minded individuals in those groups. You have to remember, Hispanics were traditionally conservative. They are very religious, anti-abortion, hard working and pro-family. They have been slowly morphed into the new liberal stronghold but we can’t just surrender that. We need to get in there and fight it out.
