A new poll from NBC and the Wall Street Journal shows Romney as 0% support from Black voters. 0%!!! You don’t have to be a polling expert to know that 0% in any poll is next to impossible. Kyle Becker from the Independent Journal Review (and our own CDNews) states:
Statistically, the polling of “zero” for Mitt Romney doesn’t even make any sense. Even if only one black person, say, Thomas Sowell, planned on voting for Mitt Romney, the statistic should be represented as <1%.
Apparently the poll “was conducted of 1,000 registered voters (300 reached by cell phone) from Aug. 16-20, and it has an overall margin of error of plus-minus 3.1 percentage points.” Did the “professionals” at NBC/WSJ even leave their own office buildings to conduct this poll? Who on earth were they polling? The White House Press Corps? The results of this poll say a lot more about NBC and WSJ then they do about Black voters. It’s one thing to take the poll, it’s quite another to publish it. NBC should have scrapped that garbage the second they got the results. As much time as the talking heads at MSNBC spend degrading Black conservatives, they OUGHT TO KNOW BETTER! Even just one view of my viral video response to their own Touré would be enough to prove that poll is complete bunk.
Sonnie Johnson, Alfonzo Rachel, Star Parker, Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams…these are just a few Black Americans who support Romney. They are the more well-known names but there are thousands of us, too many to mention here. Most aren’t even political pundits. Many are folks who voted for Obama in ’08 and have been disappointed with his leadership or turned off by his public statements on issues that are important to the Black community, like illegal immigration and gay marriage; and one need not even look very hard to find these people!
Is there any more question as to the reliability/integrity of the mainstream media?
Christians, in general, are not too happy about the idea of same sex marriage. It goes against their beliefs. It wasn’t that long ago that President Obama professed these same beliefs. The Black Pastors Coalition was excited to endorse this president.
But, times have changed. An election is upcoming. Votes are needed. And suddenly President Obama is quite in favor of same sex marriage. This new policy might rally the far left but has it alienated the Black voters? Maybe.
The Black Pastors Coalition, led by Reverend William Owens, met today. They are very unhappy with a policy that goes against their biblical principles.
They say they are not going to back down on this matter. And they are organizing a national campaign aimed to ‘save the family.’ Rev. Owens was joined at a press conference by five other black pastors who say there are over 3,700 African-American pastors joining together for an anti-Obama campaign.
There is a large portion of the Black voting population who are people of faith. What will be the impact of the coalition’s campaign? Has this president taken the Black vote for granted?
In 2008 Barack Obama received 95% of the African American vote. The news media reports rumblings of unhappiness (no surprise with unemployment over 14% for African Americans and young adult Blacks at 24%). But the news reported generally is more of whispers than actual signs of unrest.
This AlJazeera video clip was shared on NewsNinja2012.com. Filmed in Obama’s back yard it seems there may be many who choose not to vote this election due to disappointment and lack of promises fulfilled.
Herman Cain was interviewed by Greta Van Sustren on the 26th and had an interesting answer to how black voters view his candidacy.
