I support Obama because I am not in the top 1% earners. Hell, Im not even in the top 5-10%.
I dont agree with Obama 100% of the time but for me...he's the lesser of 2 evils.

Seeing that 98% of blacks voted for Obama according to exit polls I would say YES color did make a different. The real question is are they going to vote for him again after his 3-1/2 years of lies and failures?

Some people are only affiliated because some states do not allow local voting if you do not claim a party.
I consider myself ind. but am registered Dem so I can vote locally.
Do people understand that a dem does not have to vote a straight dem ticket & vice versa?
Registered party affiliation means nothing.

The question you need to be asking yourself is white people voting for Roomney is because he is white? President Obama blackness and his policies play a major role in most African American's voting for him. However if he was another anti-black republican Iwould not vote for him. Race is only psrt of the answer. Would your pink butt vote for some one who can't stand you.The vast majority of the republican party are just bareley left of the Klu Klux KLan.Obama bing elected to the top position in the world was a act of God.President Obama adminstration has been very sucessful in bringing this country back to promience,after the fail policies and two war's of the Bush gang.

Exactly. Poor whites are voting Romney just because he is white. They dont even have a clue. Saw a low income redneck on tv the other day with a shirt on that said "Put the WHITE back in WHITE HOUSE". Im thinking really?
Maybe I was wrong to assume he was low income...the state of toothless-ness and redneck-bonics led me to that conclusion. lol

Yeah, he's doing such a great job. That's why we are 6 trillion dollars more in the whole since he took over, lost our three star credit rating, and have the most people ever on food stamps while still leaving office with the same unemployment rate as when he took over. Great job.

I never seen Oprah ever back a candidate until DumBama came along. I was not surprised when Powell stabbed his so-called friend in the back to support Dumbama, and I've never heard Lebron James back a candidate since DumBama either. No........ race isn't an issue with the blacks.

Really? If that's so, why is the race nearly neck and neck according to the polls? If whites are voting for Romney, how is it DumBama was ahead in the polls before the debate?

That sounds very sterotypical of people living in the rural areas of our country. Its almost racist. But they do have a clue. They know when they have been had by an acedemic inexperienced socailist who never held a job of met a payroll in his life.
He is destroyng the country and do not want him to have a chance of completing the job!You and Biden can keep your LOLs as this is much to serious to laugh about.

1-He is part of the 1%(thanks Grob!) and will raise taxes on himself because he knows it has to happen, thats commendable.
2-I also mentioned in here that in some states you have to be party affiliated to vote in non presidentail elections. That does not mean that person is voting a straight ticket. Yet people-not just trolls- always yell that blacks are stuck and only dems...yada yada yada.....
Not mentioned in here, but imma say it anyway
3-Some people are uninformed on both sides. Those are the idiots voting on skin color-ON BOTH SIDES.
4-I know plenty of black people that are anti obama,(especially on black websites and they are not trolls)so all blacks are NOT voting obama. There goes the whole skin color theory

Maybe someone should present some facts to you on the idiocy of being a registered democratic voter. The democratic socialist party, having been infiltrated and taken over by communists, marxist and socialists is no longer the party of JFK.
Fact: the communist party USA is suing the democratic party for stealing it's platform and have presented documents showing that the democratic party platform of 2010 almost line for line reiterates the communist party USA platform of 1963
Got dammit...you feeble minded muthafucka!
What did I just say?!
I am in a state where you HAVE TO BE AFFILIATED to vote in local elections and local issues!!!!
It doesnt matter what the fu-ck you are registered as! The vote counts, not the party! I vote across party lines (never a straight ticket)depending on the candidate & issues! Fuktard!
