Video: Black Voters Disappointed In the Liberal Democratic Agenda

Interesting video by Rebel Pundit at Breitbart.

The video made me think of the Bradley Effect, which is usually thought of as whites falsely claiming they will vote for a black candidate, thus inflating the black candidate's standing in the polls, as compared to actual votes.

I'm wondering if there isn't a black Bradley Effect in play at the moment.

Blacks support Obama -- they say -- by 92-8. That makes sense, as blacks generally vote for Democrats by 90-10 or, at worse, 88-12. With a black president on the ballot, 92-8 seems pretty likely.

Except... except for the fact of Obama's record, which is generally miserable, and specifically miserable when it comes to soaring black unemployment and rising black poverty rates.

Plus, some progressive social policy adventurism, which is generally unpopular in the black community.

Now, the Bradley Effect posits that there is a "socially preferred" answer and, people being people, they offer the socially preferred answer -- sure, I'm voting for the black candidate -- in higher rates than they actually vote for that candidate. The voting booth makes no judgments, whereas in the usual sort of poll you're on the phone with a human being, who might.

It seems likely to me that within the black community there is an even stronger social preference to stating that one is supporting the first black president.

And so the polls might overstate Obama's support among blacks. Given the very high passions of some blacks about this -- Stacy Dash was vilified with the worst sort of racist and sexualized insults -- it just might be that more blacks are voting for Romney than are willing to say so aloud.

Now blacks only make up 12% of the population, and even a robust Bradley effect would only account for a 5% swing within that 12%; so we're not talking about large numbers of votes here.

Still, in a tight election, in a state like Pennsylvania... who knows.

Wait, so black people don't want the countr yot move forward to some bizarre THX1138 genderless fucked up society?

I thought they did!

That's what the Frankfurt school dropouts in the Obama-land want, so I thought that since they support this guy so heartily, and don't wnt to ever have to work again for a single thing, they would follow forward!

I am shocked.

He told me last night that he voted for Obama again. He voted early.

It's a cult, and a lot of cult members are prepared to go Jonestown with it, apparently.

17 I like to say that government is made up of "Stuff White People Like."

Really, Obama, in his ploy to fundamentally transform America, sold it to blacks as they had been on bottom, and now they were going to be on top. The expectation was that he would pay their mortgage and gas bill and whatnot.

Instead, he is an academic liberal full of SWPL. Like Bill Ayers with a tan.

Early on the whispering campaign was that he wasn't "authentic." Well, even white bread like Bill Maher figured that out.

So I think that, yes, a lot of blacks will support him for reflexive Democrat reasons, and some will support him for race, but, really, the proof that a black man can be President is made, and a black kid rubbed his head and everything to make sure it was for real.

So they can move on.

That is, if 90 percent of blacks vote Democratic, blacks are 12 percent of the population, and the Democrats gets 50 percent of the vote, then blacks represent almost 22 percent of Democratic votes.

Democrats can't afford to lose *any* black vote--especially when their ground game is based on turnout. It's much easier going through a neighborhood and getting people to the polls when you know that 90 percent of the votes will be with you than when it's more of a mishmash.

Here's another Jimmy Cartercomparison. In 1976 Southerners had the first chance in almost a hundred years tovote for a mainstream Presidential candidate from the Deep South. Carter was very much a New South Democrat, theantithesis of George Wallace and Lester Maddox. Carter took everySouthern state except Virginia. (What a difference 36 years makes: Ford wonCalifornia, Illinois,Michigan, New Jersey and Connebticut. )
Four years later Cartercarried Georgia but no other southern state.
A lot of people, black and white, voted for Obama in 2008 because they wanted to elect a black president. A lot of them will votedifferentlythis year.

Much if not allof thereported "Bradley Effect" was due to "leading" pollsters (not just one of them) not conducting surveys in the Central Valley and similiar agricultural-oriented parts of California - where voters were fleeing Governor Moonbeam and the state Democratic Party for reasons from the death penalty to Medflies.
"It costs too much to send people out there to interview voters."
"We only need to interview in the largest counties in the state."
"Be reasonable, this is what the other(s) is/are doing..."
It was a lot of fun at theLA DNC affiliate that night...as both their pre-election poll and their exit poll blew up in their faces (just like the 2004 exit polls blew up).
So, to a considerable extent, the "Bradley Effect" was a face-saving lie from Day One.

The Gays, Lesbians, Blacks, Jews, and others that leave the Dem reservation are often treated very harshly, because dem activists know their voices and votes will screw up the activist gravy train / ricebowl. After all, if the activist cannot deliver, what use are they?Dem activists are just like the Mafia, and will do anything to keep their "business" going.

93 A gay friend of my sons is voting Romney and has said so on his FB page. The hate that followed from his so called "friends" was disgusting. I jumped in and tried to help him out but these people are just certifiable. I finally gave up. He sent me a private message thanking me for trying. I felt so bad for him. He's lost several friends over this, but as I said.. I guess they weren't really friends to begin with. He's still very hurt over it though.

Yup. Of course, pointing this out will result in accusations of lying and but but but Reagan started AIDS and it's all the Republicans fault because reasons. Really, the gay left is simply *boring* in how predictable the justifications are for those who are actually homophobic.

They voted Federal government. Understandably, I would argue, since state's rights hadn't exactly been such a winning proposition for them.

The Great Society has been a disaster for them though. Everything's changed but the voting patterns remained.

119 If anything it's a reverse, reverseBradley effect. Blacks say they'll vote for Obama 92-8. The actual number might be 95-5. Some might be embarrassed about how they'll ultimately vote. That said, however, if Obama doesn't get at least 90% of the black vote not only will Romney be the next president it won't nearly be close enough even for the Dem-media-union cabal to steal.

Don't think about blacks in terms of the *population* but in terms of Democratic voters.

That is, if 90 percent of blacks vote Democratic, blacks are 12 percent of the population, and the Democrats gets 50 percent of the vote, then blacks represent almost 22 percent of Democratic votes.

Democrats can't afford to lose *any* black vote--especially when their ground game is based on turnout. It's much easier going through a neighborhood and getting people to the polls when you know that 90 percent of the votes will be with you than when it's more of a mishmash.

This is the reason Hillary will not throw Obama under the bus on Benghazi. Imagine pissing off 1/5 of your base? There is no way she hurts Barack before the election. She would be viewed as a traitor to the race. Even by blacks that despise Barack Obama.

No, Hilary will stand by Barack on Benghazi Libya through November 7.

Reagan started AIDS


As we now know from the Mitrokhin archive and gaining access to KGB archives, the KGB started that "the CIA engineered HIV to hold blacks down" crap back in the 80s. They planted the story in some newspaper in India (IIRC) that they'd penetrated (the sources above detail their efforts at penetrating news media everywhere). They laughed their asses off when the story took wing, almost as much as the stories about J. Edgar Hoover being a cross-dresser (another of their exploits).

Posted by: Jay Guevara at October 29, 2012 06:33 PM (U+DUu)

129 dunno, remember some of the softer-on-immigration Bush Republicans assured us that Latinos would be solid GOP votes in the future, cuz they're like, Catholic 'n stuff. family values. so far hasn't really worked out that way, except for Cubans, who've always been more GOP for obvious reasons.

Likewise I don't think the deeper religious sentiment in parts of the black community is gonna help the GOP much for now. Maybe at the margins, like you say, but I'm pretty sure racial solidarity/the image the media's created of the GOP as Dixiecrats/nefarious Southerners trumps that

I've been reading blogs long enough now to notice the pattern when a single person blog goes group -- it's often due to an unmentioned health problem with the individual or his immediate family. So I was getting a bit concerned that there was some health issue. Good to hear that's not the case.

I jumped in and tried to help him out but these people are just certifiable. I finally gave up. He sent me a private message thanking me for trying. I felt so bad for him. He's lost several friends over this, but as I said.. I guess they weren't really friends to begin with. He's still very hurt over it though.

Good for him for his courage. It's not easy to swim against the tide of peer pressure.

As an ex-liberal, I know what it's like to lose friends over politics. When I "changed" about 15 years ago, some friends abandoned me and I abandoned some others. I still have some other friends from back then, but our relationships are considerably strained and I don't care to talk politics with them.

I'm of a mind that we should take the offensive, and threaten to cut off friends and relatives who plan to vote for Obama again. Tell them before the election. Maybe try to shock some sense into them.

Those who voted for him the first time were ignorant, uninformed, and misguided. Those who vote for him a second time are evil.

183 Boortz said it best, Democrats will not help the black community because they know they have their votes, republicans will not help them because they can not get their votes, they will not improve their lives until they start thinking for themselves.

184 My strategy for how Republicans should "court" blacks is to aggressively support a federal law banning all racial preferences and scarpping affirmative action.

Sure, they'd be livid for a single election cycle, but after that they would be free from the Democrat plantation and stop seeing themselves as group of victims and instead as individuals. Blacks vote uniformly Democrat anyway, it might boost turnout a bit on the margins, but it would quickly dissipate.

As long as Democrats have that fear they can hold out in front of them and make black people think they're the only thing keeping them from being homeless, they have the power.

186 I think part of the problem with polarization is, as I saw one blogger as well as Richard Mourdock (!) put it, today we don't just disagree about the means, we disagree about the ends. So "compromise" isn't feasible in a lot of cases.

add the fact that the Left is constantly trying to claim their positions are the only "reality-based" ones (Jonah Goldberg nailed this) and agree to disagree becomes agree or you're evil

193 I read today where the Black participation in the work force was 55%.

I guess that means 55% of 12% which is 6% of the population(all) are working blacks and they've got to be a little more tuned into the reality of what the Democrats agenda costs as far as taxes and such.

Plus they can see how they were doing under Bush (and to be fair under clinton) and can see that Obama ain't got a handle on the problem.

They can also hear and see that the job losses are hitting whites pretty hard also so it's not a ghetto thing.

People vote their pocketbooks and their religion (or their strongly held beliefs) and Obama has smacked them in both.

195 The most interesting thing in the video is the accusation that the programs amount to money being handed to supervisors and then they shuffle lots of papers. NO JOBS.

This is what Obama did as a community organizer down there. He got money to build a park and the contractors ran off with the money, in one instance. All the housing was still substandard when he was done. Not one job was created.

And now the folks get it. Which is more than you can say for the elites.

196 Remember, we don't care if the black Democrats vote for Romney; we just want them to stay home.

I understand the sentiment but you do realize that's leaving millions in the lurch?

I don't think even supposed Mormon racist's would agree to that and definitely not Romney.

Better for them to see they've been getting the short end of the stick by NOT voting Republican and for them to do so now if just to jack up the Democrats who take them for granted.

197 Timon,
Well the wind is starting to pick up now, and I'm getting a little nervous, my neighbor has 2 very questionable trees swaying in my direction. I had a huge oak tree fall in Irene, it landed on my neighbors house and she didn't get back into her house for 3 months. I took down all the trees in my yard, but my side neighbor still have3 large not so healthy oaks that are very top heavy. I've been watching them for the last hour swaying back and forth. I hate wind.

198 I'd like to have more blacks feel that they belong here and are Americans and have a stake in what goes on.

Michelle Obama's attitude about not being proud of being an American has some validity as many blacks do feel disenfranchised and are treated as foreigners in the land of their birth. I can understand how they might feel that way if they didn't have someone pointing out how they are part of this country and should BECOME Americans in thought and deed. (those that for whatever reason don't already. It's a smaller amount than the country deserves so there's hope.)

turn off your TV's (except for known conservative shows.

cut your cable (if you dare) and let them know why.

205 For a variety of reasons, I've been at our local early voting place in a suburb or Dallas four times in the last 5 days. Voting turnout is incredibly heavy. Each day of early voting has had totals that equal the total turnout for 'ordinary' elections.

Each time I have seen a heavy turnout of Black voters. Somehow I don't think they're standing in line for an hour to early-vote for Romney.

I think that there is going to be a heavy turnout on both sides, and I'm not optimistic for Romney right now. I think that the election is going to easily fall into the margin of fraud.

Posted by: Lokki at October 29, 2012 07:41 PM (a5F9g)

206 Blacks get a limited amount of benefit from Dems (jobs, welfare). They don't get anything from Repubs. Blacks vote Dem because they saw how sweet the goodies were for white Dems and are still awaiting that level of benefit. Repubs cannot promise that blacks will get the cop/firefighter jobs exclusively for several generations (irish/italians). White dems aren't going to give up the access to the government jobs other white people still think are important to have around, but they will still scatter a few crumbs to blacks.

Until blacks get nothing from anybody, they'll take the crumbs of jobs and the welfare from Dems and vote Dem. If they got nothing, they wouldn't vote Dem or Repub, and their behavior would change to reflect the new total isolation from the political process.

Lubbock County voters have supported Republican candidates by margins of 2 to 1 or more in the past decade. Population: approx. 300,000.

Not as much as Dallas, but you did say "suburb"......which could be any of the small cities around Dallas, which I don't think will be voting for Obama. And, you forget Ft. Worth.......that Stetson-wearing, horse-riding city......definitely a cowtown and not one for Obama. Population: Approx. 760,000.
That's about 1mil so far.

And, then there's the whole metro area........those little towns tend to be more conservative....small town folks

Look on the bright side. When you prove to her - beyond any shadow of doubt - that Lincoln was in fact a Republican, and that the Republican Party was founded in essence to abolish slavery ... there's a chance you might shake her allegiance to the Dems.

Not a real big chance, mind you, but a chance.

If possible, pile on by pointing out that Bull O'Connor was a Dem, and that the man who sent the 101st Airborne to Little Rock to force integration of the schools was Eisenhower - a Republican.

209 avagreen -

I know that there's more chance of Hurricane Sandy getting my feet wet than there is of Obama winning Texas - but that's my point. If Blacks are turning out in big numbers here - where there is no point- then I'm guessing that they'll turn out in big numbers in states where it does matter.

Blow her mind. Point out that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a ... Republican.
