    I received this chart for the US Census concerning voting trends since 1964. If the black vote comes out again in November like it did in 2008, any GOP nominee is going to have a real uphill battle. Select the image below:

    Examine the chart and see the significant increase in blacks between 18-24 that voted in 2008. If that trend repeats, Obama has what appears to be a very real advantage. The question will be, "Can he once again be able to energize that sector?"

    With the very high unemplyment rate for that segment of the population, it may be a challenge.

    No need to hope, I guarantee that President Obama wins reelection this November by at least 6 percentage points. The black and Hispanic vote percentage will be greater than in 2008.

    Minorities come up short in census count...
    :confused:
    Census continues to undercount blacks, Hispanics and kids
    22 May`12 - The Census continued to miss blacks and Hispanics in 2010 despite achieving what was probably the most accurate count in the nation's history, according to Census analysis out Tuesday.
