(PICTURE) 2012 Election Map if ONLY White Men Had Voted - Look at all that Sea of Red!!

Last edited Wed Dec 5, 2012, 09:14 PM - Edit history (3)

What's astonishing is that most of these white men are poor or middle-class; and apparently based on this map will gladly vote against their best interests (economically and socially) if in the end it means less power to the people (themselves). That is f'ed up!



All i can say is thank god for women and minorities or we'd all be back living in caves as a patriotic American duty proudly chanting USA..USA!

13. Not all of you.

The good ones voted for Obama. Like you. Wish there were more who would turn away from the Republican party.

5. I think that NY would have been blue

When it comes down to it, only a minority of white men here are conservative. At least that's what I have found.

6. They may be poor and middle class,

but they have had over 300 years of ignorance pumped into their pea brains. They stand silent in the cesspool of ignorance and hate. I don't feel sorry for them. They chose this. They wanted an all white party since 1964. Now they have it. Where's the PARADE??????

9. I find it hard to beleive he would have lost Hawaii

He won that state with over 60% of the vote.

10. Hawaii is less than 25% white

White men account for 12% of eligible voters at best.

21. It's not. More whites voted in '08 than any other demographic in Hawaii.

20. In 2008, white voters made up 41% of the voting electorate in Hawaii...

Obama won 'em 70-27 over McCain.

Now, unfortunately, there wasn't an exit poll done of Hawaii (and a bunch of other states) this go around - but I find it hard to believe it dropped that fast over the last four years. Considering Obama won Hawaii by only one-point less this go around than in '08, I'm gonna wager he won the state's white male vote.

17. But he didn't lose them in so many states

For instance, the New York exit poll says Obama won white women 54% to 45%.

23. This is likely not true to how people actually voted

It is based on statistics
