Obama took the 'no high school diploma' demographic by a margin of 63% to 35%.
I will assume that that statistic is representative of the Democrat base?

Obama was favored by people of all educational classes. Who supported Bush? How much education did they obtain?

He took 2 demographic by an overwhelming majority.

Post grad and drop-out.
The rest were as close or closer than the at-large election results.

Alright then.
Let's settle on the democrat base being professors and welfare mothers. Mmmm-kay.

That would be a broad generalization considering he won each demographic, but hey, whatever floats your boat.

I am technically a "drop out", but I'm not a welfare mother.

Remember how during the election people would post videos of people thinking Obama would pay their mortgages, or people acting like Obama was the "messiah" and rant and rave about how that's who his supporters are?

My point was, lookie here! Do you think these people represent all of McCain's supporters?
