FROM THE RIGHT

right only grey

black_woman_votingThe Brookings Institute has released a study that will be of great interest to politicos everywhere.  They have determined that in the ’12 election blacks voted at a higher rate than other minority groups, and by most measures surpassed the white turnout for the first time. Blacks strongly supported Barack Obama while many whites stayed home.

Further it is reported that had people voted last November at the same rates they did in 2004, when black turnout was below its current historic levels, Republican Mitt Romney would have won the popular vote narrowly, according to an analysis conducted for The Associated Press.

Perhaps most interesting is the report that using census data on eligible voters and turnout, along with November’s exit polling, the AP study by Brookings, estimated total votes for Obama and Romney under a scenario wherein 2012 turnout rates for all racial groups matched those in 2004. Overall, 2012 voter turnout was roughly 58 percent, down from 62 percent in 2008 and 60 percent in 2004. Had white voters participated at the levels of the 2004 election, Romney would have narrowly won the popular vote. More significantly, the battleground states of Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Florida and Colorado would have tipped in favor of Romney, handing him the presidency if the outcome of other states remained the same.

Latinos are now the biggest driver of U.S. population growth, but they still trail whites and blacks in turnout and electoral share, because many of the Hispanics in the country are children or noncitizens.

Perhaps even more interesting is the fact that 2 heavy hitter Democrat pols in Indiana have just been convicted of voter fraud. They were convicted of forging voter names on petitions to enable Obama and Clinton to be presidential candidates.  The prosecutor has determined that they had forged enough names in support of Obama that had the names not been forged, Obama would not have had sufficient names to qualify as a candidate. WOW!

Part 2) We all know that this last winter was a real ordeal for folks not living in the tropics. There were many records broken for snow fall and for cold. According to the NCDC records website, 10,167 record lows have fallen so far in 2013 in the United States, compared to only 2,185 for the same time period in 2012. In the last week there were 2,901 record lows, only seven record highs! Additionally, 5,000 snowfall records have been broken so far this year.

Spring is here, but the record breaking continues. It’s just now being reported that the only year when the spring started colder was 1975. Do you suppose that all this record cold is being caused by global warming?
