The rest of us may as well stay home. Hypothetically.
The above assertion presumes the black vote will represent 12.5% of the electorate and that the poll accurately predicts the outcome in November.
If 131 million Americans vote for a Republican or Democrat (the same as 2008), Obama's 4 percent advantage will represent 5.24 million votes.
Without the 16.4 million black Americans who will vote for Obama, he would lose by 11.6 million votes.
|Look who's in the pilot's seat|
and prepare for a rough ride.
In other words, black Americans are in control of the election.
There are plenty of variables:
• The poll could be wrong.
• The numbers could change (and probably will)
• Black turnout may be less than 12.5%. (Blacks comprised 12.1% in 2008).
However, if 12.5% of the electorate represents blacks who vote for Obama and if Obama wins by less than 12.5% of the vote, then blacks will be responsible for returning the president to the Oval Office for four more years.
Consider, also, that the federal government employs about 15.1 million people, about one of every 20 Americans and about one of every 10 working Americans. Blacks are largely over-represented in federal government jobs, including decision-making positions.
And that's the way they like it.
Skin tone, in spite of what the liberals tell us, is not the issue.
Were blacks to vote in a solid block for conservatives you would find a host of most liberal Democrats donning white robes, tall pointy hats, and parading around a cross lit corn field in the dead of night.
Herman Cain, though four shades darker than the current don of dumbness, would be preferred to the much lighter (and brighter) Mitt Romney. And, no, that's not a blanket endorsement; just an underscore to remind readers that it's not a race issue. It's about agenda.
