Jay Cost: Hey, You Know, Biden Didn't Just Accidentally Tell Blacks "They Gon' Put Y'All Back In Chains"

It's all about turnout. As there are, apparently, only 3-6% (or so) of actual undecided voters, this is all about base maximization.

Telling a group of people whose ancestors had once been slaves that the opposing party intends to reinstitute slavery could sort of motivate people.

The latest Rasmussen poll of likely voters finds Romney pulling in 9 percent of African American support, and African Americans making up 12 percent of the total electorate. If that turns out to be the case in November, Obama would still do better than Kerry, but about 1.5 points worse than he did in 2008, taking into account the black vote alone.

The vital context here is Obama’s decline among white voters. This week, the Rasmussen poll finds him winning the support of just 35 percent of likely white voters, compared to 43 percent support from whites in 2008....

So, Obama really needs African Americans to come through for him about strongly as they did in 2008. Right now, that looks like a questionable proposition, which may help explain Biden’s remarks this week.

Moving forward, we should expect more of the same from the Democrats.

I made this point to my punching bag @dumme -- it sure seems like there's a coordinated effort to stoke enthusiasm among Obama's base, and since he can't run on his record, that enthusiasm will have to come from hatred of the opposition.

I Wish Conservatives Would Stop Injecting Race Into This Campaign At Every Turn: How dare us.

RUSH LIMBAUGH: “In many ways — especially for progressives — [Obama] is too white for them. He plays golf, he’s too cozy with bankers. But when it comes to knowing how to fight, he’s black."

Oh wait, that wasn't Rush Limbaugh. That was Bill Maher.

5 Meh, I've been saying that all week. Its sort of obvious, he has to get that turnout ramped up.

The problem is, if that big "preference cascade" you guys keep talking about happens, blacks will pile on the bandwagon too.

Sure, they won't vote for Romney more than, say, 12%, but a lot more will stay home if they think the brother is going to lose.

The left is pushing the narrative that voters are locked in already. In other words, Obama has already won. That ain't the case. Plus nobody knows yet who will really be coming to the polls, the enthusiasm is on the Republican side.

The fact is that he got a fair deal of cross-over vote in 2008, and a large percentage of the white vote. This seems like it would hurt him there. Or is that just me.

He may need the black vote, but not at the expense of 8+% of the white vote.

On the other side we have a plan for fixing the debt, fixing Medicare, fixing Social Security, helping small business, changing the tax system and most importantly restoring jobs. That's all before I even start on National Security and supporting our allies.

What kind of horse's ass would vote for the Obama/Biden ticket in this election? I almost could understand it (a little) in '08 due to the specific circumstances that existed with the economy, the lousy GOP candidate, Bush fatigue, etc., but this time? Then again, maybe many voters are worried about what might happen if Obama is voted out of office. He and his political people have exacerbated the differences -- ideological, wealth, race, etc. -- that exist between Americans so I fear the reactions by some if Romney beats him.

70 They were talking about Obamas campaign deciding not to go after white, working-class voters on the talk shows as far back as this winter.

Even if I hadn't heard this turn in strategy, it would be clear that the Obama campaign is no longer thinking about strategy, but rather about logistics: how do they turn out their voters and keep ours home?

It's smart in terms of getting him elected, but it also points to his weak ess as a candidate. If he had anything positive to offer, he would be offering it. All he can do is play good-cop, bad-cop, framing the RR ticket as the heavy in the coming fight.

I have been saying that for a long time. There never has been a real number of "flip flopping" independents. People routinely vote for the same Party they have always voted for. The trick to winning elections is to motivate your normals to the polls.

This means for certain the Obama cannot win re-election. In fact if Obama is less than 38% among Whites then he is going to lose the election for certain.
Withan electionprediction mode that I made Romney is going to win the following battleground states if the following percentage of White voters who voted for Obama in 2008 switch and vote for Romney in 2012:

Florida (10% White Voters switch)Ohio (11% White Voters switch)Virginia (13% White Voters switch)North Carolina (7% White Voters switch)Indiana (3% White Voters switch)Colorado (13% White Voters switch)Iowa (10% White Voters switch)New Hampshire (13% White Voters switch)Wisconsin (17% White Voters switch)Minnesota (15% White Voters switch)Nevada (22% White Voters switch)Michigan (21% White Voters switch)Pennsylvania (23% White Voters switch)

I think that 15% to 18% White voters switch from Obama in 2008 to Romney in 2012 is very possible and I think it is likely. However it may be very difficult for more than 20% of White voters switch from Obama in 2008 to Romney in 2012 but we shall see….

But if Obama is 38% or less among Whites than he would certainly lose. My prediction model is very accurate see my post # 77.

Telling a group of people whose ancestors had once been slaves that the
opposing party intends to reinstitute slavery could sort of motivate
people.


So, BiteMe's next stop on the Slavery Tour will be at synagogues? He could rope in alot more folks if he expanded his appeal to indentured servitude, too ... though that would sort of clash with ObamaScare. Luckily, cognitive dissonance is where the Left lives.

101 Well, let's not be as naive as Ivory Snow. No chance that Romney gets 9% of the black vote. Obama from that demographic will receive at least 95% and it will be on heavy turnout. That said, however, if Obama only receives 35% of the white vote, as Rasmussen suggests, then Romney will be the next president.Obama simply can't win or steal the election if he doesn't hold Romney at or under 60% of the white vote.

103 "I'm so glad that Obama has changed the cynical politics of the past and is rising above it to elevate political discourse and campaigns for the greater good of the country, especially by eschewing the old politics of stoking racial divisions."

And this is why I always disagree with people who say Romney should go for the juglar, to get mean and awful and roll around in the gutter with Obama.

If you do what Obama does, you not only make the "racism" charge easy, but you make this observation less inevitable. The bigger a jerk Obama acts like the more stark the contrast with his 2008 winning persona.

And like comedian Patrice O'Neal pointed out: look we're willing to turn against this guy if white people would just back off. The more whites bash Obama, the more blacks feel like they have to defend him. Romney isn't dragging Obama around by his meat satchels like he could, he's poking around the edges and calling for Obama to be a better man. Exactly the right tone.

There is no way that they are going to get more black voters in 2012 than 2008... At best they are going to match the 2008 turnout of black voters... However this does not matter if Obama is at 38% or less among White Voters because if this is the case then Obama is certain to lose the elections...

likely. However it may be very difficult for more than 20% of White
voters switch from Obama in 2008 to Romney in 2012 but we shall see….

Slightly OT:

I'm a little tired of hearing businesspeople say that what business people are concerned about is "uncertainty". It's certainly true that they would be able to function better if they could do some planning, but that's only part of the story.

It reminds be of a big corporation I worked for long ago. At one point they decided that morale was low because they (the management) weren't communicating enough, or effectively enough. They tried communicating more for a while, and then eventually some of them started to figure out that the employees really just didn't like what they had to say.

So, yeah, if a business knows whats going to happen they can make adjustments accordingly, but if the "certain" tax code is onerous enough, their adjustment is going to be to shut the place down - ASAP, and in a less extreme case they will cut back on raises, cancel expansion plans, etc. I can't believe it's all about "uncertainty". Iswear sometimes these people just sound like liberals (and I guess a greatmany of them are - of the "useful idiot" variety).

Democrat Obama was chosen by 42.7 percent in the 1,700 respondent poll, compared with 20.5 percent for Romney. The rest said "neither".
The result was
different among respondents in the United States, where a slim majority
thought Romney would be better for their businesses than Obama."

260 13% of the 2008 voters were black. They went for Obummer by 95%. There are app 39 million blacks in the US which is roughly 13% of the population. Turnout for them in 2008 was therefore very heavy.


It will NOT be in 2012 and there lies the issue for Dems. NC and GA both went for Obummer by narrow margins. Republican turnout in these States were low and Dem turnout was high, largely due to the black vote. Both of these two States have a large black population.

I hate to be put in the position of backing up oZfic, but there is a lot of NYC outside of Manhattan. Quite a bit of it has real neighborhoods with lawns and everything.

Is it conspiracy theory crap, or is it a documentary of Obama's life, withan introduction to Saul Alinsky,Fabian Socialism, andthe Cloward-Piven theory?

Its kind of hard to say what neighborhoods are like in "New York City" because most people mean a huge metropolitan area when they say that, including many lesser towns and areas.

There are some lawns on top of really rich buildings that penthouse inhabitants use, but most of the city proper is brownstones without any lawn. Not sure why this matters though, did I miss something?

Posted by: joncelli, heartless Con and all around unpleasant guy at August 17, 2012 04:39 PM (RD7QR) "


My elections prediction model is based on vote by RACE. I am assuming in my model that in 2012 there would be thesame percentage of each RACE participation (Whites, Blacks, Hispanics) as it was in 2008 (based on exit poll data from 200. I am using the exit poll data from 2008 for the percentage of votes per Race that were given for Obama and McCain in each State. Then I calculatethe percentage of "White Voters" who voted for Obama in 2008 (based on exit poll data) that need to switch to Romney in 2012 and would cause Obama to lose the State to Romney. I also assumed that in 2012Obama would receive the same percentage of votes from Blacks and Hispanicsthat he received in 2008 (based on exit poll data)and Romney would receive the same percentage of votes from Blacks and Hispanics that McCain received in 2008 (based on exit poll data).
Therefore my prediction model as described above says that Romney is going to win the following battleground states if the following percentage of White voters who voted for Obama in 2008 switch and vote for Romney in 2012:

Florida (10% White Voters switch)Ohio (11% White Voters switch)Virginia (13% White Voters switch)North Carolina (7% White Voters switch)Indiana (3% White Voters switch)Colorado (13% White Voters switch)Iowa (10% White Voters switch)New Hampshire (13% White Voters switch)Wisconsin (17% White Voters switch)Minnesota (15% White Voters switch)Nevada (22% White Voters switch)Michigan (21% White Voters switch)Pennsylvania (23% White Voters switch)

300 Antinomianism. This is what Gerson thinks the Obama campaign is slipping into.

I had to look it up. Not easy because a lot of the references are to theology, Martin Luther, etc. But the Free Online Dictionary gives this alternate.

"The belief that moral laws are relative in meaning and application as opposed to fixed or universal."

So, in essence, the JEF believes he can do whatever the fuck he wants to get reelected, and that no moral laws apply.

Good luck with the youth vote, the white wimmenz, and probably a lot of latinos.

I didn't say it wasn't - in fact I said it was important, myself. What I'm talking about is that what they actually decide on - were they to decide - will also have a significant impact on that plan, once you are allowed to make it.

To put it simply, if you're "paralyzed" because you have to plan for the "worst case scenario" (and I don't doubt it!) are you going to stop being paralyzed if the "worst case" scenario becomes the certainty? What if the "certainty" is actually WORSE than you imagined the "worst case" would be? "cause I can EASILY see that happening.

306 Think of antinomianism as anything-goes-ism. In theology, it's used to describe (among other things) the view that since I'm totally saved, righteous, and one of God's elect, everything I do is just hunky-dory. Which of course totally isn't applicable to libs at all.

If merconish wasn't attacking him, the dem operative allegely representing some veterans organization did. Oh and the guy sounded like a 7th grade girl indicating his organization had more members than the organization connected with the leaks video. Didn't see the whole thing, hope they put up the unedited video.

The operative said a lot of romney/ryan damaging stuff and the guy who made the leaks video just seemed stunned. If they keep going witht eh bullying tone and the behaviro spouting "facts" as they invent them, Bo might just get re elected, the romney/ryan folks need to make sure they send out pitbulls with facts...maybe sarah palin...?

338 Obama and his campaign seem to think:

1. Accuse Romney of wanting to oppress black people (each accusation more outrageous than the last to get attention)
2. ???
3. More blacks show up at the polls for O.

I don't really get this. If the first 87,000 false accusations didn't motivate them, why would # 87,001? Not to mention how much it turns off people of ALL races, and sends many into Romney's arms.

And the supreme irony is that if Obama tried to aid racial harmony, he'd help himself immensely. If he'd genuinely tried to bring people together in a way that was respectful of all, he would be practically unbeatable now.

Someday I hope he and his advisors understand how they blew it. It's sad when you think about the missed opportunity.
