So why are white voters not supporting Obama? Could it be you know what? And if so, are whites going backward? Are whites afraid of what the 2010 census reported? One more question: who are these whites?
From my observations, it has to be the less-well educated whites because all of the white people with whom I frequent support Obama and they all have post-high school education degrees. Therefore, my conclusion from my sampling is that 12th grade or lower educated whites are in the majority of those supporting the GOP candidate.
Need I mention the stupidity of this? Okay, I will: how do under-educated whites expect the GOP candidate and the GOP agenda to help them to become economically viable? Or, do their bigoted glasses filter out economic reality? Of course, but ‘they’ would rather vote against their personal financial interests than the black man. The ignorance of it all!
If we play this forward and Obama loses, these white voters will find out that their job skills will not keep them afloat in the job pool and will also find others [blacks and Hispanics] floating in and competing with them in that same pool. At that point, of course, you know who they blame for their stagnation. And, as a result, the vicious cycle continues to spin.
Note that the topic of education arose many times during the 3rd debate- embraced by Obama and cursed by Romney. Obama’s new pamphlet touts education as the key to moving forward in the quest for economic security. Yet, the Department of Education is the bane of the GOP and will surely be one of the first ‘unnecessary’ government agencies on the chopping block of a Romney presidency. What did Romney say about the teachers’ union?
Dumbed-down, bigoted whites, living in a bubble that is soon to pop.
The ignorance is stunning and unworthy of a fully-functioning, 21st century democracy.
