A changing America: In 2012, blacks outvoted whites

Via Billy

President Obama won a second term thanks to record high turnout among black voters and the first-ever decline in the number of white voters, a U.S. Census report released Wednesday shows.

For the first time, African Americans were more likely to vote than non-Hispanic whites were: 66.2% of eligible blacks voted, compared with 64.1% of whites. Since the Census Bureau began publishing voting data by race in 1968, whites had voted at higher levels than black.

"That's a landmark in American history," says William Frey, a demographer at the Brookings Institution. "And it's pretty clear that black turnout made a huge difference." His analysis of voting data shows that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney would have won or tied Obama in the popular vote if groups had turned out at the same rates they did in 2004.

  1. Yes and how do we know that one word of any of this is true? How do we know that the "election" wasn't simply rigged by the same people that are currently blackmailing congress and the courts into passing the agenda to end the American Republic? We believe he "won" because we want to. Without proof----Ray

    1. Probably true, but at any rate, the whole system is smoke and mirrors.

  2. I didn't vote and perhaps have my regrets but I was looking for a champion for America.
    Not somebody who says corporations are people. I believe Romney was set-up
    to lose anyway. The first debate he was great and made Obammy look inept;
    the second debate, he had not fully recovered from the media attacks.

  3. You have probably read about this treason incident but just in case. I guess there
    must not be many jobs out yonder to terminate seasoned employees for third
    world foreigners:
