    NBC and the Wall Street Journal poll shows Obama beating Romney among Afros 94%-0%.


    Looking inside the numbers, Obama continues to lead Romney among key parts of his political base, including African Americans (94 percent to 0 percent), Latinos (by a 2-to-1 margin), voters under 35-years-old (52 percent to 41 percent) and women (51 percent to 41 percent).
    Romney is ahead with whites (53 percent to 40 percent), rural voters (47 percent to 38 percent) and seniors (49 percent to 41 percent).

    They didn't talk to Cain or Rice? And how many coal miners are going to vote for President Obama. We vote our interests.

    To be fair, the size of the sample was 1000 voters total, and 100 respondents were African American. So it's very possible with the margin of error, Romney could get as much as 4% of the African American vote.

    That said, this was never a group Romney was going to do well with. His best shot is to win more of the white vote than McCain did, and do a bit better with HIspanics. Right now, he's doing worse with Hispanics and the white vote, not so much.

    The question really isn't how many African Americans will Romney pull away from Obama, but how many AA will actually show up at the polls to vote for Obama. His base is not as energized as it was in 2008 and unemployment among blacks is still very high.

    Very true. The youth aren't too thrilled either since his hopey, changey didn't exactly produce a job for them.

    Wishful thinking.

    voter participation has increased every election, not decreased, with the exception of 1996.

    The total number of votes the Democrat gets has increased on average 10% every election since 1980. So if Obama even gets the average, he'll get 7 million more votes than he did in 2008.

    Meanwhile, the Republicans don't increase their vote totals consistantly. They got less votes in 2008, 1992, 1988 and were flat in 1996.

    My guess is, Obama will get about 75 million votes and Romney will get something like 62 million.

    Really? That's funny, because I haven't even looked and I found two - Allen West and Herman Cain will both be voting for Romney.

    Why do you guys post such drivel? You know NBC, MSNBC is desperate to get Obama re-elected. However, wishing something over and over won't make it happen.

    Obama is going back to what ever marxist rock he crawled out from under. Even he knows it. His fate was sealed when his radical marxist policies led to a conservative electoral college landslide in the November 2010 elections.
