I admit YOUR logic is flawed. That's what this whole topic is about. how YOUR Illogic is BS. And again every one who didn't vote McCain gets it. People like me who voted Ron Paul get it's BS, people who voted Obama get it's BS, just your ilk still scream he only got the black vote because he's black while ignoring history.
95% of black voters went to the ballot for Obama and only 4% for McCain.
Obama has succeeded in mobilising African-American voters who, although strongly Democratic, have in the past been apathetic in turning out to vote.
Yesterday's surge in black voters, however, only boosted black turnout by two percentage points from 11% to 13%.
As in previous years, more black women turned out than men.
55% of white votes went to McCain including the notoriously hard-to-win white working class vote, but Obama stunned many by taking an impressive 43% of total white votes, cutting the Republican lead compared with 2004.
66% of Hispanic voters turned out for Obama - the best ever result for a Democrat.
McCain only took 31% of the Hispanic vote, despite courting them heavily in his campaign.
Obama used techniques such as Spanish-language adverts to win the Hispanic voters over, many of whom had grown disgruntled with the Bush administration.
56% of the female vote went to Obama, exceeding the usual Democrat advantage.
Many consider that Obama's appeal to women has been key to his electoral victory, while McCain's selection of Sarah Palin as his running mate, failed to help him secure the support of America's women.
It should be noted that while Obama won the female vote overall, he lost the battle over white women by 7 points.
The male vote was essentially tied with 49% voting for Obama, thus evening the score on the male-heavy Republican advantage in 2004.
41% of white males voted for Obama, making him the first Democrat since Jimmy Carter to take more than 38% in this category.
63% of Asian voters went to the ballot for Obama and 34% for McCain.
78% of the Jewish vote went to Obama. Jewish support - which made up 2% of the overall electorate - has, in recent years, been overwhelmingly Democrat; with Al Gore receiving 79% in 2000 and John Kerry 74% in 2004.

They claim Obama pals around with terrorists because of Ayers and Rashid. So I point out McCain Funded Rashid before Obama knew he existed. And that Ayers worked on a GOP charity board ran by RR's close personal friend. They claim the only reason Obama got the black vote was because he's black. I point out the history, and that Obama barely beat Clinton, and by the same logic Obama is also a Gay Jewish Woman and stuff.
