LOL I guess the 1% prevent the monolith.


Post Poll: Obama leads Romney as campaigns converge on Virginia - The Washington Post

Quote:
Christianne Rutan, a Prince William County Democrat who is African American and voted for Obama four years ago, said the president will get her vote again.

“No question, I would stick with Obama,” said Rutan, a 22-year-old mother of two who is a therapeutic recreational assistant at a nursing home. “I think he’s doing an amazing job. He doesn’t get the credit that he deserves.”

By a whopping 97 to 1 percent, Obama thumps Romney among black voters, and he has a wide lead among women: 56 to 38. Obama’s up by better than 2 to 1 margin among those aged 18 to 29, but he faces a challenge in the coming months in that many of them— 34 percent in this poll— are not registered to vote at their current address.

Face it, blacks vote for Obama simply because he's black, or because they think he's going to extend welfare.

Do you really think most blacks would vote for Allen West, Alan Keyes, and J.C. Watts over white Democrat's, simply because they are black?

That pretty much kills the OP. In other news, I wonder what percentage of the Mormon vote Obama will pull.

That's fine. Blacks are politically irrelevant in this country, and this is why.

Yes, that's why Herman Cain was taken out of the race.
