Ron Brownstein, on MSNBC, just said...
on the subject of minorities (Hispanics) growing by a great amount, "...On the other hand, the Democrats and Obama have suffered erosion of support in the white community. The Republicans won a higher share of the white vote in the 2010 congressional elections than they've won in any election since the advent of modern polling, so that is the basic dynamic-can they hold enough of the white support verse the gains they're gonna see in the minority group in all likelihood?"

Right-OBAMA suffered erosion even though he wasn't on the ticket. Teabaggers made up a large percentage of the white vote in '10. It won't be the same in '12. :eyes:

1. Let's pray for a monumental thrashing of Republicans in 2012...
We need to send them to the trash heap of history.

3. Uninformed Unaffiliated's
will swing back to the Dems and if that doesn't work for them...in 2014, they will swing back, and so on, and so on, and so on.

Independent they ain't.

6. I'm not surprised at all. They were "fired up." In '12, we'll have the UNIONS fired up and last
time I checked, there were more than a few white people in unions-not to mention those of us who support them.

4. Personally I don't believe that they won the white vote in 2010. It was more like fewer minorities
and younger white voters showed up.

8. Racism and Misogynistic Agendas MUST be exposed!!!!!!!!!
Our population has more minorities and young people ready to vote everyday.

Most of the movers and shakers of the parade of stupid Republicans, are baby boomers or younger.

These are men who have been pissed for 40 years that the sexual revolution didn't work in their favor.


America was revolted by racism and evolved to a paradigm where men and women are in this together!!

We can do this.
