Never happen within a majority class.
A minority is a clique. They find solace in unity.
A majority thinks it can afford to split and fight with itself.
Romney got 61% of the white vote this time. If he had campaigned as a true conservative and had the record to support him, I think he would have captured up to 65%. He would have won the election....
Anyhow, I am aware that there is at least a 1/4 hardcore leftist faction within the white vote. They will never be swayed.
If you think whites can’t vote as a block, think again. I believe that Mississippi and Alabama are close to 40% black/minority, but the top political offices go repub due to voter solidarity. I think that such things will become more commonplace as the demographic reality starts to become more apparent to people. I don’t really think this is a good thing. People should vote based on merit of candidate only, but since the dems are causing this to happen, future race-block voting will become increasingly more attractive to white voters as well.
