    If a minority claims that to be their motivation, then you might be right. Meanwhile, 70% for Dems is enough; it gives us a lock on the White House.

    All the more reason to keep them on the plantation eh? Pretty shrewed and has been a good tactic for the dems for a long time...hopefully, the 70% will not start to wonder why the other 30% are doing better than they are.

    Think whatever you wish. But as long as the GOP is (they are) or are perceived as (they are) the party of Angry Whites, they lose presidential elections, and stand little chance of a senate majority, and at best can gerrymander enough loopy-right districts to maybe hang onto the lower chamber, thinly, for now, since the demographics are not only death for the GOP, but worsening each and every day if you look at fertility rates by ethnicity.

    And if supporting causes that Del a Raza, NAACP, etc think are important, how is that Dems keeping them captive on a plantation? (tip: absurd) We keep them captive by being sensitive to their wants, as does the Tea Party when keeping captive the abject morons who attend those meetings.

    Vice sensitive to their needs. Paint much? (tip:Perhaps you should consider using a smaller brush...)

    It's what they want. (fact) What they need is anyone's call (subjective.)

    That help?

    Does not help minority constituants but certainly helps those that offer the empty promises.

    The promises are not empty, and in fact prove the reverse of your thesis (we hold them captive). In truth, the Dem Party is captive of women's and minority issues, and is the GOP captive of Christian Conservatives.

    The thing is, the Dems have the winning strategy, from a statistical majority standpoint, proving we support what a majority of the American People want (in democracy we call that "functioning"), and the GOP merely supports what majorities want within gerrymandered boundaries of their own making (in democracies, we call that "non-functioning")

    Plus, the query was "what minority issues?" So if even not factual (they are) if minority groups in fact have taken them up as causes (they have) then my answer is still true.

    Simply put: Does Del a Raza oppose laws like that in AZ and other anti-immigration effort? Of course.

    Does NAACP support and defend Affirmative Action, decry incarceration rates among Blacks, promote food and housing assistance for the poor? Of course.

    Hence, there are in fact many minority issues, which the GOP is on the wrong side of reflexively. So the question is, in my mind, not why 70% of minorities voted Dem; it's why did 30% vote Rep????
    And i am surprised that more minorities especially blacks don't vote republican. the democrat war on poverty is a dismal failure. we have just as many in poverty as we did when it was started only difference the programs have decimated the black family by encouraging black women to have as many children out of wedlock as they can for the hand out. more then 70% of black children are born with no father figure. all the war on poverty has done is replaced the southern plantation with the democrat plantation by forcing blacks to to be dependent on the government all for their vote

    Ask them when standing in line to vote, and I'm sure they'll gladly give you an ear full.

    I don't think Sisyphus would accept a view counter to his own from a minority. Anyone who is not a democrat must be the enemy and their views are not worthy of notice...
