Yeah cause %60 of white people voted for Romney it makes us center right?? No it might mean white people are more center right by the numbers but I think the election proved this country is moving to the left in a hurry! A few more women were voted in and the first openly gay women was voted in. This election proved everything BUT that this country is center right

 this is pretty much correct^^ the integration and equality things that fdr and his wife championed is what got the switch started and republicans hardline stances during the civil rights era cemented it

Your lack of American and Civil Rights history is pretty evident. You need to actually stay awake in school to learn something, other than conservative talk shows and websites.Like I said blacks voted mostly republican up until the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, when the elements of both parties switched. Mostly because the Southern Dixiecrats felt betrayed by the Democrats for voting for the Bill.MLK never really endorsed either party, although he stated that he voted Democratic mostly and especially for JFK.FDR's new deal did attract blacks thanks to certain provisions in the Civilian Conservation Corp that initiated employing and providing equal pay for the then segregated black population. Among other things FDR was one of the first Presidents to abolish certain segregation and discrimination polices in both the Federal government and the Military.While the Democratic party was starting to Transform progressively, it was still rooted with Southern bigots called Dixiecrats, who's leverage of the party soon eroded during the Civil Rights Era.Pick up a book son. The internet is no way to educate yourself.

That's a stupid assessment. Blacks vote just as much as any other group. The fact you would embarrass yourself by making such claims, just goes to show how far removed some people are from other races that they create their own reality about them.

The PERCENTAGE of black voters may have always cracked 90%. But 90% of what?90% of what number. The total number of voters who came out to vote Obama dwarfs that of the aforementioned Democratic candidates. If 9 out of 10 vote, it is a fact you can tell me 90% voted one way. But it's 9 people. 9 thousand is a little more and so on and so forth. I'm not saying blacks haven't been Democratic as a rule but that they simply never voted at all until they had a reason to do so. And it had little to do with politics. I'm a Steelers fan. I watch the Super Bowl a little closer if the Steelers are playing. I don't care who wins if they don't. I'm saying they collectively haven't cared about the Super Bowl for a long time.

Not out of context. Show me any election ever where this many registered black voters actually VOTED. Show me. If the same numbers came out in support of Clinton, Gore, Kerry, etc; you are correct. However, you will see that it is a fact that the black voters have come out in force to vote Obama like Yankee fans stuffing ballots for A-Rod. I'm not stirring anything emotionally. Strictly facts of the numbers and the basis behind WHY they suddenly voted 4 years ago and this year yet never did before either of these elections.

Pretty much spot on. Though this really proves that the voting pattern is less about skin color and more about lack of education.

That's the liberal fantasy anyway. Black America was as consistently Rep as they are Dem now. Up until FDR bought them with the New Deal, and LBJ put the nail in the coffin. The idea that Lib/Con flipped is just a rationalization for people who want to pretend that Lincoln would be a Dem today. From the same kind of people who ignore the fact that MLK Jr was a Conservative Republican."I'll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years." —Lyndon B. JohnsonBefore the leftists like LBJ and FDR did their damage and bought the black-vote, black Americans had less unemployment than white Americans. Their other social problems were no more severe than in white America. Things like education, crime rates, single-parenthood. etc. The problems today are the result of big-government politicians buying votes by waving Obama-phones and welfare checks.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpAOwJvTOio
