Skip to comments.In a first, black voter turnout rate passes whites [2012 Election Analysis]
Posted on 04/28/2013 7:53:03 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
America's blacks voted at a higher rate than other minority groups in 2012 and by most measures surpassed the white turnout for the first time, reflecting a deeply polarized presidential election in which blacks strongly supported Barack Obama while many whites stayed home.
Had people voted last November at the same rates they did in 2004, when black turnout was below its current historic levels, Republican Mitt Romney would have won narrowly, according to an analysis conducted for The Associated Press.
Census data and exit polling show that whites and blacks will remain the two largest racial groups of eligible voters for the next decade. Last year's heavy black turnout came despite concerns about the effect of new voter-identification laws on minority voting, outweighed by the desire to re-elect the first black president.

I am certain most FREEPers are white, but among the black conservatives we have here...what CAN be done to turn this tide? My heart breaks knowing that most blacks are voting for a party and a candidate that wants to enslave them to dependence on government.
This demonstrates why the GOP-e’s strategy of trying to get the votes of liberal minorities by alienating white conservatives is doomed to failure.
Instead of looking at this racially, let’s look at it philosophically.
This is what happens when you have a Marxist and a liberal as your two major party candidates for President. I didn’t stay home but I can understand why some people did.
Romney hurt the Republican Party all over the ticket, as some of us here predicted he would. Yes, black turnout was high but an energized conservative base with a conservative candidate would have been preferred.
Yeah but - who’s winning American Idolatry and Danzing with the Starz in between commercials for Viagra, Depends, and Sleeping pills this week?
That’s what the McSheeple think is really important.
“Whooooa Duuudes! Where’s the Republic?”
But, that would be racist to think blacks would commit voter fraud to get one of theirs elected to office/sarc off!
100% turn out in districts voting for Obama mama? 110% turn out for Obama mama in some districts where blacks only make up 9% of the population?
Yes, I voted twice,” Richardson told WCPO-TV. “I, after registering thousands of people, certainly wanted my vote to count, so I voted. I voted at the polls.”
Authorities also are investigating if she voted in the names of four other people, too, for a total of six votes in the 2012 presidential election.
“I'll fight it for Mr. Obama and for Mr. Obama’s right to sit as president of the United States,” Richardson vowed when asked about the voter fraud investigation that is now under way.
Richardson is one of 19 people suspected of illegal voting by the Hamilton County Board of Elections in the last election.
“I'm outraged, and every voter, regardless of their political affiliation, should be outraged,” said Hamilton County Board of Elections member Alex Triantafilou, who is also chairman of the county Republican Party. “It causes folks to have real doubts about the fabric of our very democratic process, and it's dangerous. It is disconcerting that someone would be so bold as to admit their conduct in such a fashion ... We fully intend to prosecute these cases.”
Richardson claimed she had submitted an absentee ballot, but was afraid her vote would not count so she also voted in person. She also said she voted in the name of her granddaughter and yet another person.
Translation: reflecting that blacks are racists.
But how many ACTUALLY VOTED, rather than have the poll workers do it for them, as the Congressman’s son (Moran, I think) gave EXPLICIT instructions on how to do.
I don’t think that REAL black turnout will exceed white turnout for a long time, but “apparent turnout”, due to their methods of “counting the vote” (i.e., “100% plus” turnouts in inner-city precincts) will make it certainly appear that way.
Well, when an unsupervised election judge simply lines up the registration number with the number voted and it all goes to Obama, magic happens.
How much of the black turnout was fraud?
How many of them got to vote 72 times in the same election?
Voting is so passe. Getting ready for the melt down is more fashionable.
This is the Asspress after all, the fountainhead of all lies and propaganda.
That’s at least partially thanks to the “Romney’s a Commie atheist” crowd right here on FR.Refusal to vote for the lesser of two evils (and Romney was,and is,*far* less evil than Osama Obama) got us not the *greater* of *two*...but the *GREATEST* of *all*....evils.
“...what CAN be done to turn this tide?...”
Nothing; it’s too late and will only get worse.
“This demonstrates why the GOP-es strategy of trying to get the votes of liberal minorities by alienating white conservatives is doomed to failure.”
And at the same time demonstrates how white “conservatives” gave Obama 4 more years.
Given every conservative knows the media is in the tank for Obama it is truly a wonder that folks actually thought Obama in office would be better than Romney.
And given that on any day of week any GOP-e would be no worse and most probably better than Obama.
But the dems are much better lying and posing as conservatives to convince people that staying home is vote for their conscious (to teach the GOP a lesson) and not a vote for Obama.. woohoo that’ll show em.
Why in the heck would the GOP change when their voter base doesn’t even show up?
And the percentage of those votes that were fraudulently cast?
Of course its fraud. And if this is how the game is played - play it. We need to be the people counting the votes. And if we need more votes, we pull them out of a bank of boxes and car trunks.
If we are unwilling fix the fraud or too good to do it, then we lose.
"I got the feeling Mitt Romney couldn't care less about me and my fellow African-Americans. A white Mormon swimming in money with offshore accounts buying up companies and laying off their employees just doesn't quite fit my idea of a president," she said. "Bottom line, Romney was not someone I was willing to trust with my future."

What can be done to turn the tide?
You need to prove to the black voters that the Democrat party is the party of eugenics, immorality, and anti-Christendom.
How you do that is through education via the local churches.
Unfortunately, our fascist Government has every church afraid of losing their tax exempt status if they talk politics. (I know this through personal experience—I was once an assistant pastor at a black church in Oakland, CA).
So, step one is to strike down the laws which tax the churches if they talk politics. It can be done via civil disobedience followed by litigation through the courts in which it is stressed that the prohibition against talking politics in church violates an individual’s Right to Free Speech.
Concomitantly, ALL churches need to begin educating and sheepskinning (diploma-ing) a new breed of educators which will fan out across the nation and replace the retiring Marxist school teachers in Middle-schools and High-schools where the majority of Liberal and Leftist indoctrination occurs. The Elementary schools can come later—no need wasting limited resources in the opening gambit.
Anyway, that’s the way to do it if you want long term, lasting payoffs. All else is just short-lived rewards with only temporary victories.
It’s a long, winding road, so don’t expect an immediate payoff. After all, it took the Proggies over a hundred years to get a full-blown commie into the White House.
If I am not mistaken, the Secretary of State in Ohio, Jon Husted, the person who oversees elections, was a Republican in 2012. Yet Ohio probably endured the most voter fraud in the nation.
Precinct chairs should be made up only of Grand Jury members, who work until 3 hours after poll closing time. Wouldn’t be
hard to make law if Grand Juries, on average, mirror the white/minority make-up of the precinct or county.
I don’t believe this for one minute. It’s only true if people names were written in or made up.
I gar-on-tee that most of those black voters voted by proxy. Obama’s myrmidons in the “community” industry took care of the actual ballot submission.
Black turnout was in excess of 250% - a new record
But what percentage of them were actual living people?
And how many “white” votes were selectively “vanished” in small, unnoticeable chunks (percentages)?
Why don’t people understand that we are seeing MASSIVE vote fraud at work?
Romney and the establishment pubbies got rolled because they are innocents who want to ignore the obvious.
We need street fightin’ pols who will not take this crime lying down.
We're still waiting.
The first thing is to ban all Republican candidates from using the services, or accepting money, from Karl Rove and his organization. Either they agree to this, or from the very start the Tea Party and other conservative organizations should make it clear that no matter how much money they get from the big money men, that Republicans are not going to vote for them, so they might as well run as Democrats or independents.
In some black areas, over 100% of the population voted.
I’m calling total Bull! Voter fraud on a scale never seen before and no one in government has the stones to look into it.
Down ticket is where races are won and future policy is created. Romney was a pathetic candidate from a conservative’s point of view and he was a bridge too far for me and may others here, but you’re quite right to note that replacing Democrats is the key.
I just prefer not to do it with other Democrats.
Down ticket is where races are won and future policy is created.
Correct you are. But if people are disheartened to the point of not bothering to get out and vote because of the top of the ticket then the impact if felt down ticket as well.
I still don’t understand the loss by Allen West in Florida’s 18th. Romney pulled something over 6,000 more votes than did West in the 18th. Had West got 1/2 of those votes he’d have won without a problem. Boggles the mind sometimes.
We agree. :)
And yes, West is a mystery. In a race as vicious as that one was, though, I can’t discount cheating. It appears to have been a widespread, and naturally unreported, problem.
reading the article, these guys must be working with the climate change scientists’ data models.
Vote early! Vote often!
Naturally not reported? I guess you mean that since the MSM is totally leftist and corrupt it is natural for it to lie and to censure information.
Yes, it was not actual black voter turnout, but poll workers voting for black people who failed to turn out.
Voter fraud was MASSIVE last election. The swing states were stolen.
I wish I could believe that scenario.
At the present, or even slightly decreased rate, the US will - not might - collapse, SHTF, and we will cease to exist as certain foreign powers take-over our worldwide interests, our allies collapse and possibly even wreak irreversible havoc (massive ‘soft target’ terrorism, Aztlan invasion chaos, EMPs etc) on us, here.
The carnage will be so far beyond massive as to be unbelievable.
What’s left will be the size of Texas or a few scattered states trying to reunite. Perhaps we can pull parts of it back together; at 63, and as well-prepared and well-armed as I am, I hope to be around to get in on it.
Personally, I’d rather it didn’t happen, but the true facts indicate otherwise.
Easy when they vote 50 times!
Bingo! All those wards in Philly and Chicago where the turnout exceeds registration will have affected the statistics.
Bingo, Colonel. That is the irreducible equation that explains the last election to a T.
