Barry Sotero will get the usual 90%+ of the black vote because they are stupid as hell.
You need to read the book BOSS about Mayor Daley who would for over THREE decades get over 90% of the black vote in his mayoral elections and then run right over them.The blacks never would consider voting for a republican candidate who would have given them much better representation.
Blacks are stupid as hell when it comes to voting it is like a virus that courses in their blood that make them chose the candidate with a letter D
next to their names.
That is why they are in a world of shit!

And if you think Mitt Romney would give better representation to blacks than Barack Obama would, you're out of your mind.

Funny how they insist in using this name.

Or, they know that Republicans don't give a shit about black people unless they're making several hundred thousand dollars a year. What's Romney going to do for them when he says he doesn't care about 47% of the population?
Why do they insist upon using that name? It's like they're trying to make something sinister out of the fact that he may have gone by a different name earlier in life. Hell, for the first 12 years of my life, I went by "Tommy" until I decided that "Tom" sounded more grown up. That doesn't make me an evil socialist-nazi-liberal-Muslim-commie-terrorist.

"The blacks never would consider voting for a republican candidate who would have given them much better representation."
I heartily agree about that concerning The Republican Party....100 + YEARS AGO!
But the REAL Republican Party went the way of the Whigs & a bunch of TheoFascists stole the name.
If the most venerable "Honest Abe" were alive today, he would be a Democrat.

Black people used to vote Republican all the time until the Republicans started using race as an election tactic.

Perhaps it's because the majority of black people are more likely to agree with Obama over Romney on the issues. Black people tend to be anti-war in high numbers (8 out of 10 blacks opposed the Vietnam War and 7 out of 10 blacks opposed the Iraq War); black people tend to be less opposed to federal programs; and black people tend to be less likely to support tax cuts for the rich and deregulation/de-unionization. The reason for the last 2 should be obvious - the "states' rights" movement has meant hell for black people 90% of the time (most of the time it means state "rights" to pass racist or bigoted laws, southern whites were angry about federal oversight because it broke up scams they had going that benefited the white majority). Deregulation and de-unionization has negatively affected blacks. It's one of the primary reasons why large urban areas have such high unemployment and poverty rates - jobs being shipped over to China and India and employers using undocumented immigrants as an excuse to drop wages or put American workers out of a job because they won't work for $4/hour.
So what about Romney is there for black people to support? Why should we support a man who:
*Supports (and made his fortune off of) one of the main culprits of black poverty and unemployment rates in urban areas - deregulation and de-unionization/shipping jobs overseas
*Supports tax hikes on the poor, which black people tend to disproportionately belong to (2.5x more likely than whites to be poor)
*Supports tax cuts for the rich - one of the main incentives for American companies to downsize (and minorities are often the first to be laid off)
*Wants to kick millions of poor and unemployed people off social programs
*Openly panders to white racists and bigots, as has every Republican since Barry Goldwater (one of the main reasons most blacks don't vote Republican anymore)...we all know what his "Obama is shoring up his base with welfare" is dog whistle for...

After Romney's comment about the "47%" (which ironically HE HIMSELF and his buddy Paul Ryan belong to) and his defense of those comments by admitting his tax plan is only made to benefit the top 5%, any non-rich person who votes for him is a fool. Any black person or minority who would vote for Romeny is doubly so after his comments about Obama's "welfare base" (dog-whistle for "black people") and about Hispanics. The Republicans seem bent on turning away Asian voters too with Michelle Malkin's comments about "Chinese dishwashers" and Pete Hoekstra's stupid ads about Chinese people.
It's ironic that poor southern whites hate federal social programs so much since they benefit from them as much as their poor black neighbors. The majority of white people on welfare tend to vote Republican and the majority of them live in the South. Most of the whtites (and blacks and Hispanics) who pay the federal income tax live in the North and Eastern Seaboard and are more likely to vote Democrat. Ironically more of Romney's base (at least with white Americans) belong to that 47% he despises, and ironically he himself belongs to that group too.
