Tom Scocca over at Slate created the graph below in an article, Eighty-Eight Percent of Romney Voters Were White. It is a shocking collection of data. Of course, it goes along with my argument that the minority issue the Republicans have is much bigger than toning down the rhetoric.
Another interesting thing to note is how ridiculous is the idea that Obama didn’t get a mandate. If Romney didn’t win, you could say it depended upon a single segment of the electorate. But you just can’t say that about Obama. Those claiming that Obama doesn’t have a mandate are racists. Just saying.
