Romney needs white power heading into demographic headwinds

Racial and Ethnic Composition of 2008 Eligible Voters
"[I]f Romney fails to energize white working class voters, and Obama turns out his key constituencies, Romney will lose." (Alan Abramowitz)

"[T]he surge in black voter participation in 2008 was driven by increased participation among black women and younger voters. The voter turnout rate among eligible black female voters increased 5.1 percentage points, from 63.7% in 2004 to 68.8% in 2008. Overall, among all racial, ethnic and gender groups, black women had the highest voter turnout rate in November's election -- a first." (Mark Hugo Lopez, Associate Director, Pew Hispanic Center, Paul Taylor, Executive Vice President, Pew Research Center)

With a shrinking white percentage of the electorate, to win Republicans must obstruct non-GOP voters, and convince rural and suburban whites that only Mitt Romney can save America from the Bush-Cheney nightmare by replicating the Bush-Cheney policies, ... and god is watching.
