    I say no.People being interviewed on the street do not represent the whole population. That said I do believe a lot of people both white and black voted for Obama because he is black just like a lot of people voted for McCain because he is white. But those people do not represent the majority.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Because he's the democrat candidate. You can tell someone he supports or opposes abortion or anything else, but I doubt you're going to convince many he's not a democrat. Most people view themselves as democrat or republican and will tend to vote for whoever the party runs regardless. If the democratic candidate got high 80s of the black vote when the democratic candidate was white, my guess is roughly around high 80% of them would vote for Obama were he white too.

    again? you never asked me anything thanks

    and I dont know if you know this or not but A LOT of americans dont know about the candidate they support or they only care about ONE thing and the rest dont matter.

    lots of people vote SOLELY based on gay rights, abortions, religion, gun laws, party affiliation.

    so now that your question is answered and my post still stands do you have anything factual or even logical to support your false claim of "most Blacks vote for Obama just because he black"

    1. Some random television show you watched is not representative of an entire community of people.
    2. Maybe that person didn't mention any issues that the interviewees cared about.
    3. Maybe they think that the Republicans will be worse, even if they didn't agree with what they perceived Obama's stances on the issues to be.

    I know that you're chomping at the bit to push the "black people are stupid" meme, but the fact is that 90+ percent of blacks voting Democrat is nothing unusual or unique to Barack Obama. It's been that way for a long time. Largely because of people like you in the Republican Party.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    In 2006 in Maryland, Democrat Ben Cardin got 75% of the black vote against Republican Michael Steele. Cardin is white, Steele is black.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting
