“Deconstructing exit poll data from 2012, African-American voters accounted for Obama’s entire margin of victory in seven states: Florida, Maryland, Michigan, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Without these states’ 112 electoral votes, Obama would have lost decisively,” Walter and Wasserman wrote, adding, “African-Americans also accounted for almost all of Obama’s margin in Wisconsin. All of these states, except Maryland, will be crucial 2016 battlegrounds.”
And how did putting Obama in office twice help us out, folks? Hillary is just gonna be a continuation. Leverage our votes, get into office, screw minorities. What's wrong with Carson?

He's intelligent and a republican, so he is probably disqualified from getting the black vote.

He is semi pro gun, so no demonrat will vote for him.

I think we've had enough African American presidents for awhile. We need another movie star.

A woman would be great - just NOT the one running this time.

Pretty well. He pulled us out of the housing bubble and collapse that the Bush administration created. The United States has recovered far better than Europe. His scandals (solyndra, benghazi) have been limited in number, small in magnitude and largely irrelevant.

Well, he thinks that the Nazis came to power because Germany restricted guns.

He thinks that the ACA is the "Worst thing to happen in America since slavery," and specifically said that the ACA is "worse than 9/11"

He thinks secular progressives are a threat to his security

His tax plan is completely implausible and actually based on the bible (lol).

He claims to want to "tax GDP" but has not yet explained how such a thing is possible.

He compares homosexuality to bestiality.

Basically the only people that like him are people who are think being neurosurgeon somehow prepares you to set federal policy.

I like Carson. He's level headed, stands by his beliefs but seems willing to discuss options. I've said it a 1,000 times. I could careless about a persons race, religion etc.. It's all about actions to me. Blacks elected Obama thinking he would care and help them. What did he do? ENFLAMED racial hatred and left them behind in their anger. Now? He brings in millions and millions of illegals that will compete directly with any hope of financial well being they had hoped for. He screwed them and doesn't give two chits.

If they wake up and realize it the should vote for Carson. I believe he will make a difference.

He's also a paranoid conspiracy theorist...

Ben Carson, Paranoid - The New Yorker

He knows less than zero about policy.

Religion does matter in this case because like Huckabee, he has said it will shape his policies.

Further more, Barack Obama did not inflame racial tensions in this nation. it is those who believe that any talk about racism in this country is a problem that inflamed it.

and the illegals you speak of are already here. He didnt bring them.

net migration of Mexican immigrates is 0, for other nationalities, we need more research.
