Blacks outvoted whites in 2012, the first time on record (and they got their Socialist)
cnn ^ | 5/10/2013 | Dan Merica

Posted on 05/10/2013 5:24:07 AM PDT by tobyhill

A new Census Bureau report shows a higher percentage of African-Americans than whites voted in a presidential election for the first time in history last year during the matchup between President Obama and GOP nominee Mitt Romney.

The report, released Wednesday, found that more than 66% of eligible blacks voted in the presidential contest. Only 64.1% of whites turned out to vote.

This marks the first time since 1968 that blacks turned out at a higher rate the whites.

In addition to blacks turning out at a higher rate, the number of Asian and Hispanic voters grew from 2008 to 2012. Hispanics added 1.4 million people and Asians added over 500,000. Between 1996 and 2012, blacks, Asians and Hispanics all saw their percentage of the voting population increase.

"Over the last five presidential elections, the share of voters who were racial or ethnic minorities rose from just over one in six in 1996 to more than one in four in 2012," said Thom File, the report's author.

The highest turnout of blacks, in addition to the growing number of Hispanics and Asians, could also explain Obama's success in defeating Romney.

According to CNN exit polls, 93% of African-Americans, 71% of Hispanics and 73% of Asians supported Obama over Romney.

yea and now take how Obama is not all white and lets see blacks coming out to vote for a white person, oh wait, they don’t .
All about colour to them, they are the classic low info voter.
See colour, and then come out to vote, which is why we have nuts like dear Maxine Walters, or S Jackson or even Sharpton, ad the other race baiters.

Blacks want their welfare and their brother to be in power ten they moan about them not getting enough because they are in worst state than before.

The left cares nothing about blacks, they care nothing about turd poking pushing homosexuals, they care about their own power and making this country onto a communist country.

When Govt is big enough to give you anything it is stronger enough to take it all away

got get me that obamaphone, me want me welfare, hate Romney , obama is a brother.

I feel sorry for the decent few blacks in the community who have brains and are attacked for actually having their own minds and can get ahead in life without playing a race card like Cain, Col West.

Exactly. That is why the GOP just needs to get out of the way and let the destruction begin. The GOP should not pass any bills, including budgets, CRs or Debt Increases.

If you’re one of Holder’s people, you get to vote multiple times in Ohio, Virginia and South Florida, so it adds up.

Highest voter participation?

Well Duuhhh!

Did anyone remember “voter fraud”? Of course the percentage was high, in some districts the percentage of votes was 140% of the registered voters and 100% (not a single vote for GOP).

Well Duuhhh!

Last I checked blacks, prepresent 13% of the US and by all accoiunts, white people were voting. There were no reports of no white people showing up to vote in any area. There were many accounts of votes in white areas not be recorded by the machines and accounts of Blacks voting multiple times in swing states and locking out Republican observers.

This is irrelevant since blacks make up only 13 percent
of the population.
Naturally, nearly 100 percent of that 13 percent voted for Obozo, but so did most white idiots.
Obozo won because of the dumbing down of Americans by Marxist media and educational systems.

At the risk of being called a “-ist”, I don’t think your average black person on welfare, EBT cards, Obozophones, etc. even knows what socialism is. And that goes for your average white person on welfare as well.
If the govt told those on govt assistance tomorrow that they had to give up their satellite dish...they’d sit up and pay attention. Right now, it’s “where’s the office, what forms do I fill out and how much do I get?”

____________________________________________

Even so, it is immaterial.
The blacks could have stayed home and Obozo would still have been put in office by STUPID white voters.
There was, no doubt, plenty of white voter fraud to go along with black fraud in electing your Premier/Dear leader.

I have put some numbers to the 2012 vote:

US population: 320,000,000 (roughly)
Voted in 2012: 120,000,000 (roughly)
Not eligible to vote: 100,000,000 (roughly)

CHOSE NOT TO VOTE: 100,000,000 (roughly)

The numbers may not be US census accurate, but you get the picture: Why did roughly 100,000,000 eligible voters stay home?

That is the question we Conservatives must find an answer to and then work to get them out in 2014 and 2016!

Reality today is threatened. It is absent in the MSM. No sense of reality. It is absent in the schools and universities. It is absent in the leadership of the nation.

We are truly past Orwell’s 1984, the Truth is a casualty.

And the consequences? Collapse of society. Destpotism?

I smell the stench in my nostrils every day. We must stand together as a nation or die.

The commies took Romny’s 42% remark and played it against him. Romney could have played up the reasons why there was an artificial increase in costs due to Obama’s energy policy.Thus forcing those on limited income to rely on the dole. Hence making them victims of goverment policy. But his handlers and that includes Rove amd Priebus were too dumb to know how to do it. Besides that they felt boxed in because of his previous positions on globull warming and Romneycare.

Worse yet they’re still at it.

Shorter term you are correct.

We need to get out and vote. Which means we need a pair of candidates to vote for.

Longer term however, we need jobs. America has been sending American jobs elsewhere.

Unemployed Americans do not vote Republican.

Bring back American jobs. Now.

“Why did roughly 100,000,000 eligible voters stay home?”

I read here at FR last year that a vast majority of Evangelicals refused to vote for a Mormon, and stayed home. They didn’t vote. Apparently that amount of Evangelicals was according to the article enough to hand Obama a second term. If that article I read here at FR was correct then I suppose that along with the fraud is what kept us in hot water.

Even their dead voted and probably a few that weren’t born yet. Many voted more than once. People forget where 0’ worked at prior to the WH. It was voter fraud pure and simple but Romney didn’t want to challenge it because he knew what he was up against and that it would be fruitless.

For them, it's a pretty good deal. Could Obama and wife have gotten into Ivy League schools without quotas? For blacks, quotas are like being born into the Bush family without being born into the Bush family. Even the Bush family has limited reach. Quotas are nationwide.

Nixon believed there was voter fraud in 1960; Romney in 2012 hoped there wasn’t voter fraud and buried the matter. Nixon knew that he could never overturn the fraud in TX, MO, and IL that year.

"...the socialists, in the long run, can’t lose."

Yup, they can count on the kamikaze Conservatives sitting out elections because the conservative candidate isn't conservative enough or he is Mormon or whatever. McCain received more votes than Romney. Too many "Conservatives" sat home in a misguided, counter-productive protest.

One should vote his principles in the primaries but be realistic and pragmatic in the general elections.

66% of eligible blacks voted in the presidential contest. Only 64.1% of whites turned out to vote. According to CNN exit polls, 93% of African-Americans, 71% of Hispanics and 73% of Asians supported Obama over Romney.

Only 48% of the Latino population turned out, which was nearly two percentage points below the 2008 rate. non-whites made up 26.3% of all voters, another all-time high.

The share of the non-white population is also expected to rise from 33.9% to 37.8% in 2020 and 54.8% by 2060, according to Census Bureau projections. – Mitt Romney captured only 17% of the growing non-white population.

Adults born after 1980 who are now between 18 and 33 – continues to grow. “Over the last five presidential elections, the share of voters who were racial or ethnic minorities rose from just over one in six in 1996 to more than one in four in 2012,” said Thom File, the report’s author.

While Millennials are currently 25.5% of the electorate, they are expected to make up 36.5% by 2020. http://www.census.gov/prod/2013pubs/p20-568.pdf http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2013/05/09/blacks-outvoted-whites-in-2012-the-first-time-on-record/?hpt=hp_t3

And is there any question why I still say that 2/3 of Americans are dumb as a box of rocks. No way to reeducate them. And the new generation is about just as bad. America is lost to the insane. And as for the few, how stupid were you in not realizing that our only chance this time was Romney. Not perfect but what the hell is King Obama. Think, or is that a lost trait!

I read here at FR last year that a vast majority of Evangelicals refused to vote for a Mormon, and stayed home.

Likely posted by those who were not Evangelicals, and who are paradoxically blamed while being the most conservative religious group , voting for Romney even (marginally) more than Mormons! But i have yet to see stats that corroborate that the "vast majority" of Evangelicals stayed home, or that they did so much more than any other group, or that they did not vote because he was Mormon. When they voted just as strongly for Romney as for McCain, and outdo Mormons, then the latter is hard to believe.

Rather than blaming most conservative religious group, why not blame the Republicans for producing and choosing such a quasi-conservative candidate, and for not getting down and educating non-whites.

And as the stats in my post #33 above shows, Romney's loss has to do with changing demographics rather than a change in evangelical voting.

“The report, released Wednesday, found that more than 66% of eligible blacks voted in the presidential contest. Only 64.1% of whites turned out to vote.”

Now...the truth of these numbers:
There were votes cast, equal to 66% of eligible blacks, but that does not mean that 66% of eligible blacks voted. We have confessed stories of multiple votes being cast by a single person, from Cleveland to California. So, the fact is that the vote count does not actually reflect the number of black voters, but rather the number of votes cast representing black voters.

Vote Fraud has been a significant component of the last several presidential elections, IMO. And, last November was no exception.

That is your view of why Romney didn’t challenge it and it could be the right version.

I don’t believe Romney wanted the job in the First place.

If he were a Patriotic American he would now be trying to find a way to stop it from happening again, but he has gone back to getting richer.

This was posted last week.

Not shocking. Blacks had their half-black president and as signs on their Baltimore abodes said, “WE got your back, Uhbama”. They came out in droves just to vote for a halfie and make sure he got back in, and of course they lock-step it for Dems anyway.

I was right, though it’s barely been mentioned. Blacks put Uhbama in and again.

No. Whites are not nearly as predictable as blacks. So if even a slight majority of whites votes Dem, tons of blacks coming out will vote 99% Dem and make a difference. Thus Uhbama’s slight overall win.
