Free Stuff Trumps Morality in Voting
There’s a new report out that says that blacks oppose homosexual marriage in greater numbers than Latinos and whites and yet more than 93 percent of blacks voted for the first pro-homosexual-marriage president.
Among blacks, Latinos and whites, blacks were the only racial or ethnic group in which a majority of respondents said they opposed gay marriage, in a Washington Post-ABC poll. On marijuana legalization, blacks are most supportive while Latinos are the least supportive.
Fifty-one percent of blacks, 45 percent of Latinos and 47 percent of whites said they oppose gay marriage in the Nov. 7 poll of 1,023 adults. The margin of error for the full sample is 3.5 percentage points.
So why did blacks and other targeted groups vote overwhelmingly for President Obama? Free stuff. Post-election-Mitt Romney said as much:
“What the president, president’s campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote,” Romney said in the afternoon call, according to audio aired on ABC News.
In addition, there is the forgiveness of student loan debt to young people and including them on their parents’ insurance program until they’re 26, thus burdening employers who are paying for the insurance. Then there was the gift of free contraception and healthcare in general.
So it’s not surprising that Obama won 93% of the African-American vote, 71% of the Latino vote, and 60% of those between the ages of 18 and 29.
Now take a look at this video from the Judge Judy Show to get some idea of how a significant number of people think about where the money comes from. The young man’s color is not relevant. There are whites – especially college students – who think the same way.

This "free stuff" story has been blasted by several repubs as being lunacy. You also forgot to mention more whites voted for obama than they did romney.

Repubs have been giving free stuff, ie tax cuts, to the rich for their votes for years.

Judge judy---yep that's hardcore proof!!!!
