Survey: One-Third Of Americans In ‘Lower Classes’ Since Obama Took Office
The Unreported Racism Of The 2012 Election: 0% Of African-Americans Support Romney
"The results of an NBC-Wall Street Journal poll came out recently and got very little play in the media. The poll’s results were race-related and quite startling. While the media has jumped on anything involving race quite readily during the Obama presidency – and even before – apparently this survey didn’t produce the type of front page race-talk the media likes to report on.The Plus in Romney's 0 Percent Black Vote Support - Earl Ofari Hutchenson
According to the NBC and Wall Street Journal’s poll conducted in August of 2012, 0% – that’s “zero percent”, not a typo – of African-Americans support the GOP presidential candidate-to-be Mitt Romney in the presidential election of 2012.
The media keeps suggesting that the racism regarding candidates has to do with whites not wanting to vote for a black man, even though Barack Obama won a presidential election with a great amount of white support – obviously – or he wouldn’t have won an election in the country where the vast majority of people are white."
"why is the support for Obama among African-Americans is so strong. Black persons’ economics have reportedly worsened during the Obama administration over the past four years. The extremely poor unemployment rate among African-Americans has worsened during Obama’s term, as it is now estimated to be up to approximately 15%. The Obama economy has caused people’s need for federal assistance, such as food stamps, to increase to 50% of all Americans – with a great deal, but not a majority, of those in need being black persons. The housing situation in America which has had an extremely negative impact on minorities in this country is reportedly worse than it was in the mid-1930s during the Great Depression. Crime and murders in the big cities are still atrocious, quite often in the minority areas of those cities, such as in Obama’s own hometown of Chicago.
With all this factual data – not propaganda – created during President Obama’s term, it is incomprehensible to think that 94% of African-Americans are still supporting Obama and 0% is supporting Romney – unless one thinks like a racist and only vote for one’s own race."

Another insidious GOP ploy with its eye on black voters is to bankroll and promote a handful of visible and vocal black conservatives to recite all the stock criticisms of Obama, civil rights leaders, and Democrats. This creates the deliberate and false impression that a substantial number of blacks don't support the Democratic Party despite the polls. Davis, for instance, plays that role well. In highly touted interviews and appearances, Davis pounds on the tired theme that the Democratic Party has betrayed blacks and that it practices a modern version of plantationism; that is perennially taking the black vote for granted, while offering no tangible programs for the black poor. His tout of Romney and Ryan's emphasis on private sector growth, school choice, and further shredding welfare, is supposedly the path to economic well-being and uplift for blacks. This line will be repeated incessantly by black GOP pitchmen and women in the run up to November 6.********
The GOP's aim is not to add a digit or two to the goose egg that polls show Romney will get from black voters. It's to sow seeds of doubt, confusion, and even some hostility toward Obama among just enough blacks to keep them from the polls in the must win battle ground states, present the façade of a color blind party, and sprinkle it all with racially loaded code terms to further inflame conservative white voters. This is the plus GOP banks on among blacks despite Romney's 0 percent black voter support.
Zero—Literally Zero!—Percent of Black Voters Support Mitt Romney
After Romney suffered sustained booing at an address to the NAACP in July, the organization’s chair, Roslyn Brock, released the following apologia: “This morning Governor Romney laid out his policy agenda for this nation. Unfortunately, much of his agenda is at odds with what the NAACP stands for—whether the issue is equal access to affordable health care, reforming our education system or the path forward on marriage equality.”*********
Empirical research conducted on the “Blacks/Afro-Americans for Mitt Romney” Facebook page confirms Romney’s unpopularity within the black community. Many members of the group appear to be white; still more appear to have joined the group with the intention of arguing how disingenuous most of the posted pro-Romney arguments were.

Mitt Romney’s Lack of Blacks
There still are no pictures of Blacks anywhere to be found on Romney’s campaign website. There is a full section targeting the Hispanic vote, even a section in Spanish; but nothing targeting the Black community. Enough said!
This is what happens when you have no capable Blacks around to advice and work on a campaign. If Baca is in charge of coalitions, then why has he not reached out to experienced operatives like Shannon Reeves, Allegra McCullough, David Byrd, Aaron Manaigo, Francis Johnson, Ada Fisher or James House? Why has he not reached out to the National Association of Black Accountants, the National Association of Black MBAs, or the National Association of Black Engineers, to name a few?
I know the leaders of most these groups and know for a fact certain that they would be fertile ground for an intelligent message put forward from the Romney campaign. The few Blacks Romney may have around him are all functional people—meaning they follow orders; they don’t give the orders! That is what I mean when I talk about being in a position of power—can they authorize an expenditure of money, can they get an event on Romney’s schedule, or can they get a private meeting on Romney’s calendar?
I would much rather the Romney campaign simply tell the Black community straight-up that they have no interest in our vote because their actions speak so loud that I can’t hear a damn thing they are saying!
