Joan Walsh’s provocative new book is called What’s the Matter with White People? Looking at the latest poll numbers I think it is more accurate to ask “what’s the matter with white men?” Consider this: 0% (yes, 0%) of Black voters support Mitt Romney. Less than 30% of Latinos intend on voting for Romney. And among women he trails Obama 52 to 36%.
So.. let’s see. Blacks, Latinos, and women all overwhelmingly favor Obama yet the race remains relatively close. So where is Romney’s support coming from? Hmmmmm….. let me think….
Full Disclosure: I am considered by most to be a white man.
