Tell your Republican representatives to work with the president instead of blocking every move he wants to make. (How did that work out for you these past 4 years?)

Bayner and Mitchell "It is our job to insure Obama is a one term president"
Didn't work out for those two clowns did it?

nah, I would rather tell republicans to screw things up and dont work with pbo at all. do exactly the same that democrats did to republican presidents in the past.

Example # 10087 of why the GOP lost. With this view of your fellow citizens, who in their right mind would put you in charge?

That article clearly states for those figures are for Virginia alone.

2012 results are not yet available, but back in 2008 voters with less than a high school education broke for Obama by a large margin, in fact every election back to 1980 shows Democrats emerging victorious among the uneducated (or rather, undereducated);

Otherwise there is not that big of a split between Democrats or Republicans in the various education levels (note that the 2012 race was much closer, therefore each category is probably closer to 50-50).

Hmmm..from the data I've seen, college-educated whites lean Republican just as much as high-school educated whites (especially in the "Some college" and "Bachelor's degree without graduate degree" categories). It's the graduate (or post-graduate, whatever) degree folk who now lean Democratic.

High-school educated whites, however, are not so much leaning Republican so much as not voting Democratic as much as they used to (there's a difference; many of them don't vote at all). The ones who do vote Republican, in my experience, tend to have resentment and cynicism towards prevailing institutions (especially the government). And while the Democratic Party has done a great job of carrying urban and metropolitan areas, they have utterly failed, in recent years, to offer much of anything to rural/blue-collar white America (at least, that's the perception of a lot of blue-collar whites, especially rural whites). And I say all this as a metro area Democrat.

That being said, the core of the GOP is still suburban/exurban white-collar whites, in terms of raw numbers and influence. This is especially true of married couples with children living at home, who attend church more than average. That is the demographic from where the GOP's conservatism is coming from, by and large.

I guess the correct answer to such a questioin is because all the dropouts vote Democratic.

Its close to 50/50 for all education levels except post grad. They predominantly vote for Obama, 55% to 42%. That is interesting.

The reason poorly educated whites lean Republican is because they are stupid and easily lead. That's a hard truth which upsets people but it is never the less the truth.
