14. Blacks are not the base of the votes for the Democratic Party, they just have no where else to go

In the 2012 Presidential Election Obama got 36,000,000 non-hispanic white votes and only 16,000,000 black votes. In fact, in 2012, more non-hispanic white voters voted for Obama than all PoC (blacks, latino/hispanic, asian) combined (36,000,000 vs. 32,000,00).

Thus, whites are the base of the votes for the Democratic Party, at least according to the 2012 Presidential Election results.

This myth that the "blacks are the base of the party" is false.

What is true is that blacks have no where else to turn. Given this, Romney only received 1,000,000 black votes in 2012 by comparison. Though this is relatively few (16:1 ratio), it's still a million more than I would expect.

Here's the link with the numbers:
