As is so often the case with the left-liberal failure to accurately predict the consequences of their policies, America’s increased diversity and vibrancy is not going reduce racial tensions and polarization, but increase them.
Now, as you get further down, you see outliers, where the GOP’s share of the white vote is far higher than the GOP’s overall performance: for example, Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi. These are states typically in the Deep South, with large black populations. Obviously, there’s a strong degree of white solidarity to keep blacks from taking over the state.
For example, Mississippi went for Romney 56-44—and the way he won was by getting 88 percent of the white vote. Why did he get 88 percent of the white vote? Well, Mississippi has the largest black population of any state and according to this Reuters-Ipsos poll, blacks in Mississippi voted 100 percent for Obama (sample size = 38)
This is what “diversity” gets you in the long run. Lee Kwan Yew of Singapore says, in a multicultural democracy, everybody ends up voting on race.
But probably the two most interesting states that Romney won are not in the Deep South: Texas (76 percent of white vote) and Arizona (66 percent).
Texas is not really an old Deep South state by any means. It has had a huge influx of Americans from all over the country since oil was first discovered in 1901, and it has its own culture. It shows the possibilities of what a state could do in terms of going heavily toward Republicans as a bloc vote: 76 percent is a pretty amazing number, but that’s what it took to keep rapidly-Hispanicizing Texas handily Republican.
If whites in Texas don’t vote consistently Republican, then the state, with its 38 Electoral Votes, will go Democratic in some future presidential election. And that would end the chances of the Republican Party as we know it ever regaining the White House.
So, GOP, you better hurry up and put all those illegal aliens in Texas on the path to citizenship!
Not being a Republican, I’m not at all concerned about Republican electoral prospects. But it is worth noting that many Democrats like McRapey who have already fled their vibrant former neighborhoods for white strongholds are soon going to find themselves voting for what has effectively become the White Party whether they like it or not, not out of racial solidarity or because they have learned a strange new respect for Republican Party policies, but because the Everybody Else Party is going to abandon its feigned interest in equality as soon as the Latinos, Blacks, and Asians realize they have the numbers to quit playing poor helpless minority with the white left-liberals who previously dominated it.
It should be very interesting to see if Hillary Clinton is the Democratic nominee for 2016 or if she is again shouldered aside by a minority flag-bearer. If that happens, we can be fairly certain that we will have seen the last white Democratic presidential nominee.
