Default Middle age white men, vote republican

because your president doesn't want you:


"It will be up to each of you to make sure that the young people, African Americans, Latinos and women, who powered our victory in 2008 stand together once again," he said.

"If you help us do that -- if you help us make sure that first-time voters in 2008 make their voices heard again in November -- then together we will deliver on the promise of change and hope and prosperity for generations to come," he said.

Don't worry, he says nice things about Latinos and women, but he passes the corporate-friendly policies for the middle-aged white men.

Post Civil Rights Voting Patterns

The United States Census reported that 58 % of African Americans were voting in the presidential election of 1964. African Americans were voting Democratic 82% of the time. This number would swell to 92 % by 1968. With the exception of the 1972, 1984, and the 1992 elections Blacks would continue to give at least 80% of their collective votes to the Democratic presidential candidate says Minion K.C. Morris in African Americans and Political Participation.

2008 Primary Indicators

According to the DNC (Democratic National Committee), Black voter turnout reached a highpoint in the 2008 primaries. Certainly, the uniqueness of the candidates bolstered this turnout. In South Carolina 48% of all primary voters was African American. Georgia saw an 85% increase in Black voters from 2004. Likewise, around the nation a boom in Black turnout was evident.

Fun With History

African Americans have a history in both major political parties of the United States. After the Civil War almost all Black Americans considered themselves Republicans. It was the Republican Party that was started by abolitionists and of course the party of President Abraham Lincoln. It was the Southern Democrats who strongly opposed any rights to Blacks at the time.

Things began to change during the "Great Depression" of the 1930s with Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal. The New Deal was a program that helped disadvantaged and minority communities. This persuaded more African Americans to vote Democrat. During the Civil Rights Era the Southern Democrats break from the party forming the Dixiecrat Party and eventually moving to the Republican Party. By this time the majority of Blacks had become Democrats.

By 2004 only 7% of African Americans considered themselves Republicans. The most votes any Republican candidate received from Blacks since 1968 was George H. W. Bush in 1992 (21%). In 1980 Jimmy Carter received 94% of the Black vote against Ronald Reagan.

Obama secured 95% of the Black vote...11% of the total vote. Why waste the effort/money campaign to the people who are going to vote for even if your threaten to jihad their children.
