    I don't discount racism.

    Obama has gone from 43% of the White vote in 2008 to 37% now (if the polls are right, which they probably aren't.)

    Which- again- not enough to overcome the fact he has 80%+ support from minorities.

    So what you're saying is that 10 of millions of Americans having voted for Obama suddenly became racists in "post-racial America" or as other's portrayed it, "the Age of Obama"?

    Sounds more than just a bit goofy to me.

    well, first, I doubt it's "10's of millions". 6% of the White vote probalby only equates to about 4 million people, tops.

    Second, I haven't talked to one person yet who voted for Obama in 2008 who tells me he or she is for Romney now.

    Do I think that there are people who are disappointed with Obama. Sure.

    But 90% of what animates Romney's campaign is racism that was there in 2008 and is still there now.

    Sorry, that dog won't hunt. The racism excuse is too old and too unproven. People voted for Obama precisely because he was black. Now they won't, not because he suddenly became blacker or because they hadn't realized he was black originally but because he is a fucking disaster of epic proportions. Like your posts.

    True story.

    At a party, a woman said that Facebook cancelled her account after she called Obama the "N-word", and she didn't understand what she did wrong.

    Please, it's all about the racism.

    Really? Thats your response? Total pitiful fail.

    I also dont understand what she did wrong. If someone called George W Bush a cracker would FB cancel their account? No.

    Not even comparable, and you know it.

    Oh, wait. Maybe you don't.

    You really need to go back to school and take math over. Maybe this time around, you will pay attention so that you receive a passing grade. If Obama was down 43% with white voters, Romney would be up in the polls by seven to ten points.

    In 2008, Obama received 43% of the white vote. This year, he is only polling at 37% which is a 14% drop. Some of this he has made up by taking a larger slice of the minority vote along with the fact that the minority vote is a larger percentage of the total vote this year.

    That's really your response?

    Obama's piss-poor performance is responsible for his high negatives among whites. Racism is merely an excuse by the left and the brain dead who support them, like you.
    Remind me why you don't support Romney. Oh yeah, you're a fucking bigot.
