I noticed this from the prop 8 vote in california:
“According to exit polls, whites opposed the amendment 53-47. But blacks supported it 70-30, and Latinos supported it 51-49. The polls have blacks at 10 percent of the electorate for this issue, with Latinos at 19 percent and whites at 63 percent. (Asians, at six percent, opposed the proposition 53-47.)”
Now, i read that as a confirmation of blacks and hispanics as socially conservative, moreso than whites.
It is my opinion that if the GOP can get back to making the talk of smaller government, spending, taxes and increasing energy within the US into action; they can turn back the tide.
