PA Dem Voters
Women
Clinton 55%
Obama 44

Men
Clinton 47%
Obama 53

Whites
Clinton 60%
Obama 40

Blacks
Clinton 8%
Obama 92

Now Im going to go out on a limb and state that I highly doubt that 92 out of 100 blacks are voting for Obama on issues alone.

I wasn't quite sure how to title this as I know it is a sensitive subject, but one that truly does deserve some discussion.

What do I take from this? We as a country only get force fed 1 side of the racial problems in this country. Anyone agree, disagree? I would think that this is something that people like Rev. Jackson and Rev. Sharpton would be discussing as the numbers truly are staggering. If Whites were voting 92% to 8% for Clinton I think there would be some SERIOUS accusations being leveled at the avg. american voter (not voter fraud or anything but racial accusations).

Sorry if this is offensive to anyone as it's truly not meant to be but I find those numbers truly staggering and worthy of discussion.

It is obvious that blacks are voting for him by that margin because he's black.

Please ANYONE tell me what policy of his is better for blacks than hers?

Guess what? many women vote for Hillary only because of her gender. I don't see you bringing that up.

Some blacks vote for Obama because of his color, just as some whites vote against Obama for exactly the same reason. That's just the way it is. My question would be, why are you focusing on only one side of it?

Go back up to those numbers and look at the white numbers and the women vote. Then give me a reason to bring it up.

In 2004, in the GE, John Kerry got 90% of the black vote. Must of been because of his color.
