Obama Wins the Emerging Groups...The GOP Wins the Declining Groups

   In the slice and dice world of media and politics, identifying voting blocks is a big deal and we now see polls show 73% of Asian folks voted Obama...Near the same for Hispanics and of course much more for blacks.
    At Pete's tonight I am talking to Caitlyn, a Romney voter who tells me among her peers the prospect of free health care was a big deal. Another lad of 22 tells me he voted for Mr. Obama because of his stand (recently acquired) on same sex marriage.
    First lesson of 2012....no one cares about party labels....It's about niche issues and being hip.
    My frustration is that you can't get pro-business, conservative economics without a lot of abortion-religious right-gay marriage is heresy type rhetoric.
     A white middle age Republican elected official told me last night the composition of voters has changed.  He was right, and that leaves the old bromides about registration advantage and the like very obsolete.

White men are not racist enough so they won't stick together and vote for their guy. If they would vote in lockstep like the other races then we could keep this country going for another 30 years.

Oh, come on ... we all know that gay folks, the downtrodden, non-Christian minorities never ever work for GOP-owned or operated businesses ... only straight-laced, self-righteous, and well ... you know do ... so give it a rest - their base is well-known.
