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.
