    you have me cringing again ... at a higher rate means relative to their numbers, but I recall that you had a problem with this kind of thing before ... here, hopefully this will help ...


    WASHINGTON — The turnout rate of black voters surpassed the rate for whites for the first time on record in 2012, as more black voters went to the polls than in 2008 and fewer whites did, according to a Census Bureau report released Wednesday. The survey also found that Hispanics and Asians continue to turn out at much lower rates than other groups, and that women turn out at higher rates than men. The increase in black turnout was driven in significant part by more votes from black women.

    According to the Census report, 66.2 percent of eligible blacks voted in the 2012 election, compared with 64.1 percent of eligible non-Hispanic whites. An estimated two million fewer white Americans voted in 2012 than in 2008, just as about 1.8 million more blacks went to the polls, more than 90 percent of them voting to re-elect President Obama, exit polls showed.


    and guess what?

    In 2012, 73.7 percent of voters were white, according to the census, down from 82.5 percent in 1996.

    And where do you get the idea that the trend is moving toward the GOP? Clinton got 88% of the black vote, Gore over 90%, Kerry 89% and Obama 93% ... explain the trend to me ...

    I don't think you'll find many present day registered and active Republicans that do not idolize Abraham Lincoln. The Republican Party still very much is the Party of Lincoln.

    Ok, that's awesome. I hadn't seen that the rate was higher, but I'm happy it is. Still, the black vote for Republicans is climbing as well, along with an increased number of black conservatives getting into the races.

    I'm happy to be proved wrong on this point.

    no, no, no ... the way it works is that you back something up with data, a link or something ... you may be right ... show us ... but no, you don't get to say, "I'll say whatever I please, I'll even make up ****, and it's up to you to show me data to the contrary?" What's wrong with you?

    I conceded your point, what's your problem, Lenny?

    Today's GOP is not even the party of Reagan, let alone that of Lincoln. Try Paul v. DeMint v. Rove

    Just like Lincoln, the GOP says you can, and should, stand on your own two feet, and that you should not be blocked by govt from doing so.

    Nor any sheet wearing Southern pinheads, whose ancestors were Dems voting for a Democrat.

    sorry Guber ... I thought you were referring to your other ridiculous statement that the GOP is making steady headway into the minority vote and that I had to prove you wrong ... my bad ... I need a break before you start making sense to me ... then it will be too late ...
