Or is it mostly because of all the taxpayer-funded "free" handouts (welfare, unemployment, cell phones, food stamps, health care, etc, etc)?

No, that would be kind of racist to vote for someone because of the color of their skin.

The better question is how many white people are voting for Mitt Romney because he's white? A poll last week found Romney's support among white men to be as high as 68%, far higher than any other demographic group; well, save one. African American support for Obama is similarly high.

So, if you want to make the claim that African Americans are voting for Obama because of the color of his skin, just be sure to look in the mirror on election day and realize you're likely doing the same.

Last election, 98% of blacks voted for Obama. This year, they estimate that it will be around 92%, definitely higher than the 68%.

I am voting for Romney not because he is white, but because of Obama's failed policies.

Your 68% figure pales in comparison to the 97% support Obama received from blacks in 2008. There are plenty of black people I would vote for, including Condoleeza Rice and Clarence Thomas. I voted for Alan Keyes. White people I know who are voting Romney are fed up with Obama's ineptitude.

You're an idiot. We are white and voted for Obama because we felt he would do a better job. There are about 160 million more whites than blacks in this country so he had to have won millions of white votes. Who cares what color anyone's skin is? This is not 1930 anymore. Please educate yourself. Try to evolve a little bit.

Hey loser, are you under the porch licking you ass like a whipped dog?

The abject ignorance in Williamson County never ceases to amaze me. Give somebody an 80K a year job and they think they are "rich", like ole Mitt the chalk face loser.

Now we have to put up with the senile ramblings of John McCain. I think he got beaten badly too.

Tennessee has become such an intellectual embarrassment, go Scott DesJarlais! The new symbol of Tennessee!

Don't get me started on that slimy little bag whore Marsha Blackburn.

Actually most of the poor uneducated states voted for Romey. Red states receive the most foodstamps and government aid in general. Most blue atleast 8 out of the 10 richest most educated states are blue states. Infact the blue states subsidize the red states. Simply put, the red states are a drain on the US economy except they are either too uneducated or can't see past their own prejudices or both and vote against their own economic interests.

You're an idiot. Do some research please. Blacks have been voting Democrat for decades. Startes in 1964 when LBJ held 94% of the Black vote and since then blaks have voted Democrat. This is not a new development because Obama is Black!

This comment alone is proof that you are one of the many uneducated people that voted Romney!

"Put differently, of the states with the highest percentage of high school graduates, 64% are blue, 36% red. For college graduates, the break is more dramatic—80% to 20%. And for those holding graduate and professional degrees, 87% of the states went for Obama, 13% for Romney. These numbers, crude though they may be, are statistically significant.

If one is willing to assume a correlation between educational attainment and income, the numbers are even more surprising. Wealthy voters could be presumed to be more highly educated, which would tend to increase Romney’s popularity among folks who have graduated from college at least once. Yet nothing could be farther from the truth"

Actually, the "sad" reality is that you are mistaken. The people that are getting "handouts" are the red states that voted Republican, you know the Romney voters. Blacks only make up about 13% of the United States so can you please explain to me how Blacks are winning Obama the election. I would really like to know. Also, most of the poor uneducated states voted for Romey. SURPRISE!! Those states are red states! Red states receive the most foodstamps and government aid in general. Most blue atleast 8 out of the 10 richest most educated states are blue states. Infact the blue states subsidize the red states. Simply put, the red states are a drain on the US economy except they are either too uneducated or can't see past their own prejudices or both and vote against their own economic interests.
