No Blacks Support Romney: A new poll by NBC and
the Wall Street Journal finds that about zero percent of Blacks support Mitt Romney for president,
compared with the 94 percent who support Barack Obama, reports BET.com.
Sen. John McCain got 4 percent of
the Black vote in 2008 and 11 percent voted for George W. Bush in 2004.
David Bositis, senior political
analyst for the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, told BET: "…his issue positions (aren't
attractive); he has no history with Black people whatsoever; he's Mormon, a religion that until very
recently was prejudiced against Black people and at the present moment in time African-Americans have
totally and completely soured on the Republican Party."
Also noteable from the poll: Obama leads with
Latino voters by two to one, under-35s by 11 points and with women by 10 points.
