It was Republican efforts to restrict early voting hours that led to the lines. And as far as your "free stuff" comment in your earlier post, I think claiming that a whole race is lazy and wanting "free stuff" will not serve the Republicans well in attracting their votes. But maybe that's just me.

What is pathetic is reason the majority of minorities vote the way they do.

There is a difference between representing a group's interest and the country's interest. The voting public in general are stunningly ignorant about issues, politics, and candidates, and add to that single issue voters and party line voters, make the entire system an abysmal circus.

If this is true, RP; are you telling us that Obama never recieved One White vote in 2008 or 2012? How do you term those Whites? Are they racist?
Let's back it up a bit to 2004. Same question: How much of the Black vote did GWB get percentage wise? Are these same Blacks equally racist by your definition?
How do you explain the fact that Wall Street (historically Repub-leaning) supported Obama overwhelmingly against McCain in 2008; or Romney over Obama in 2012? Were those Whites racist to do so? Or were they opportunistic- just trying to go with the winning horse as they saw it?
I don't deny that Obama got the lion's share of the Black vote by virtue of affiliation. You can say that he's Black; and that's the reason. But, you are speaking of only a portion of the Black populace that will vote on that info alone- and by inferring that all Blacks think the same way, and act the same way for the same reasons; you would be sorely informed.
Let us jump ahead to 2016. Let us assume that Hillary Clinton is the Dem nominee. Is there anyone willing to bet me that she won't win the lion's share of the female vote over the Repub nominee (whomever you think that may be or hope to be)? Wouldn't that be the same affiliation?
In sports; we refer to this phenomenon as the "home-field advantage". It's really not complicated to understand. It's been around as long as there has been competion between human beings. In certain areas; one competitor will have an advantage over the other. The other competitor's obvious challenge is to either deny that advantage or to lessen the impact of said advantage!

Even more to the point: How do you explain Herman Cain in the 2012 Repub primaries? Sre you saying that the only Black votes he received were those of Black racists? That he also did not recieve any White votes?
Personally, I tend to agree with one Repub-leaning member in another thread: Dems don't actually win against Repubs; Repubs end up losing themselves! Until Repubs fix this situation; it will only continue!

I liked Cain. I wish he had been prepared on foreign policy; it was hard to watch him try to answer those questions. He wasn't in long enough to fully understand too much about him, but I like him over others early on.

He seemed kinda gimmicky. Not the person, but the policies. There was little depth to his big draw, the 9-9-9 Plan, especially since it came from Simcity 4.

Cain needed a lot more prepping in order to become a more serious candidate.

This post is why Republicans can't win with minorities.

That's sort of what I meant by more time; the prepping and gimmicks get sorted out. The prepping is only a media show; it is not indicative of capability because someone memorizes random world facts, but demonstrates the seriousness wirh the effort. I don't know who advised Cain on that. I wanted to see if his background would be an asset or not, but it never got that far. After a while someone's principles emerge through all the smoke and mirrors, and many do not get that far. It is only a novelty to me because of how late Texas is in the primaries; the last two cycles it was McCain and Romney and I never had a say.
