For more than three decades before the 2008 election, no Democratic president had won a majority of the electorate. In part, that was because of low support -- never more than 38 percent -- among white male voters.

Polling suggests that the shift was not because of Obama but because of the financial meltdown that preceded the election.

It was also at that point that Obama first sustained a clear majority among all registered voters, according to the Gallup tracking poll.
