Black Voter Turnout Surpassed White Voter Turnout?

by Dan Poole | Contrary to what you may have heard over the last week, the white vote remains the most important demographic in every election for the next several decades. On April 28, the Associated Press ran a story claiming that in 2012, the black turnout “surpassed the white turnout for the first time.” This is misleading on several levels.

For starters, whites still composed 72 percent of all voters. In Texas, one of only four non-white majority states in the union, 76 percent of whites voted for Mitt Romney. As a result, Texas went red yet again. If 76 percent of all whites who voted went for Romney, then he would have won 54.7 percent of all voters and, barring an anomaly of the electoral system, would be President today. If Romney won 88 percent of the white vote like he did in Mississippi, he would have won 63.4 percent of the total vote, which is only three points shy of a supermajority.

Furthermore, the Associated Press made it sound like more blacks voted in absolute numbers than whites did. In fact, as the AP itself says in the middle of the article, where people are less likely to read it:

“The gap between non-Hispanic white and non-Hispanic black turnout in 2008 was the smallest on record, with voter turnout at 66.1 percent and 65.2 percent, respectively; turnout for Latinos and non-Hispanic Asians trailed at 50 percent and 47 percent. Rough calculations suggest that in 2012, 2 million to 5 million fewer whites voted compared with 2008, even though the pool of eligible white voters had increased.”

In other words, it may not even be the case that a higher proportion of blacks turned out to vote than whites, and it certainly isn’t the case that more non-whites voted in absolute numbers. As Peter Brimelow pointed out in a terrific article for World Net Daily: “Indeed, even if immigration continues at current levels, the GOP could still win the 2052 presidential election – if it could increase its white share to 70 percent.”

Whites are decreasing as a percentage of the population, and after 2024 whites will decrease in absolute numbers. But for now and for years to come, whites will still decide election outcomes. The raw math proves it. However, the GOP not only has zero interest in raising its share of the white vote to totals it already commands in Texas, Alabama, and Mississippi, it’s wasting $10 million to “reach out” to non-whites, none of whom show any indication whatsoever of supporting GOP policies like tax cuts or welfare reform.

“…most white people would not vote for a black candidate,” announced Rep. Mel Watt, D-N.C.

However, 97% of black voters did not vote for Mitt Romney.

Where the GOP has abandoned its white base, the American Freedom Party seeks to fill the gap. We stand for an inclusive policy of welcoming whites from all walks of life – including the white working class, the demographic that the GOP sees as “lazy welfare brats” and that the Democrats dismiss as “morally backward racist scoundrels.” Neither of the two major parties stands for the white working class. Neither of the two major parties stands for white Americans period. Both have their own anti-white vision of a diverse, multicultural utopia. They are two wings of the same pterodactyl.

In an age where both major parties refuse to support the economic, social, and cultural interests of white Americans, the American Freedom Party stands for white interests. If you’re sick of being denigrated for being white, or lost your job thanks to the giant sucking sound of free trade, or despise the constant war-mongering of what passes for the U.S. government, or are disgusted by the mess blacks and latinos have made of the welfare system, please consider joining the American Freedom Party.
