Nate Cohn: The Yankees Sunk Romney


H/T Rich Lowry

Here’s some more ammunition for neo-Confederates: a historic level of Whites in Dixie turned out to vote for two Yankees, one of whom happened to be a Mormon, just to rid America of Obama as president, and that tag team ended up running behind W. in the Northern states!

Update: VDARE links to my Southern State Wrap Up and acknowledges that the South has done almost everything it can do to pull America out of the ditch. We have maxed out on “Take Back America” through supporting Republicans.

Politically, there is nothing we can do to prevent Yankees from moving “Forward!” with Obama:

“Romney’s strong national showing among white voters was almost exclusively driven by historic support from Southern and Appalachian white voters. In many counties, Obama’s performance was the worst by any Democrat since McGovern or, in some places, ever. Even a quick glance at overwhelmingly white, Southern, or Appalachian counties with a history of offering even limited support to Democratic candidates shows Obama performing anywhere from 15 to 30 points worse than Kerry did eight years ago. Obama even lost more than 50 points compared to Kerry’s performance in several “coal country” counties in southern West Virginia and eastern Kentucky.

Outside the South, Romney’s performance among white voters was anything but historic. He ran behind Bush’s tallies in most of the northern half of the United States. While some believed that Obama’s weakness among white voters would translate into opportunities for Romney in overwhelmingly white states like Iowa, New Hampshire, and Wisconsin, Obama ultimately won these three states by 5.6 to 6.9 points, even though Bush never lost any by more than 1.3 points. More broadly, you can quickly consider changes in Democratic support among white voters between ’04 and ’12 in the nine states where whites represent at least 85 percent of the population. These states aren’t exactly representative of white voters elsewhere, but the big picture is about right: outside of the South, Romney ran behind Bush among white voters, but he made up for it in Appalachia and the rest of the South.”

  1. White voters did not turn out in sufficient numbers for the Republican candidate. And why should they have? I know I didn’t. Why should blue collar Northern factory workers ever vote Republican? It’s the party of big business and always has been. Maximizing profits by shipping factories overseas and letting in a continuous flow of cheap immigrant labor has been their policy from day one along with maintaining a Wall Street banking cartel that controls all the world wide capital it possibly can.

    And why should conservatives and pro-life candidates vote for a notorious RINO flip flopper of years standing on the issues of gun control and abortion, who instituted socialized medicine in Massachusetts, and who backtracked during the general election campaign on even his milquetoast promises on reducing immigration that he made in the Republican primary debates. I was fooled by George Herbert (“read my lips, no new taxes”) Walker Bush in 1988, but finally learned my lesson. I haven’t voted Republican since.

    To hell with Romney and to hell with the Republican Party. And to hell with all the Johnny Rebs on this site who used voting for Romney as some sort of litmus test of ideological purity for everyone else in the country and yet were such elitist vanguardists that they didn’t vote for Romney themselves? Hypocrites.

    It’s about time the Republican Party dies the natural death it deserves.

  2. Hunter please give the election a rest.

    We all know what happened, it’s pretty fucking clear. It’s time to move on.

    If we don’t stop analyzing who to blame for failing to fuel up the jet, we are going to smash into a cliff side.

    Maybe it’s time to start talking how to survive that crash.

    Better : how to avert it.



  3. “Maybe white voters in the north have already seceded from both major parties?”

    Turnout was down from 2008 for both major parties. If the Republicans think they can prosper by “reaching out” to Hispanic and other minority voters instead of concentrating on promoting the interests of the average White man then they are just whistling Dixie. “Me-too” liberal Republicanism kept them away from control of Congress for two generations. Utilizing that strategy again will result in them evaporating away in even more states just like they have in California, Illinois, and New York.

  4. “If we don’t stop analyzing who to blame for failing to fuel up the jet, we are going to smash into a cliff side.

    Maybe it’s time to start talking how to survive that crash.”

    Fiscal Armageddon is almost upon us. Trying to fly out on Republican Airlines is no solution. Think local. State legislatures ignoring federal mandates. Jury nullification. Income tax evasion. Live in all white counties. And the toughest one of all especially for Southern contractors: DON’T HIRE SPICS!

  5. Just for the record, Obama only won the majority of the white vote in New England, Iowa, Washington, Oregon, Hawaii and DC. All these states combined add up to a paltry 65 electoral votes.

  6. I Call Bullshit! Like Bonzo’s Hero Stalin said,”It matters not how the votes are cast that counts, but who counts the votes that matters!”

    F R A U D

    All the Chimp in Heat has WON is a Hole in the Head with Israeli Lead!

    BURN IN HELL, N I G G E R !!!

  7. Feel better now, Dr Doom? That sort of outburst and language gets us nowhere. We have to ask ourselves whether we want to go with what makes us momentarily feel good or what wins. Outbursts and language like that doesn’t help us win.

  8. This is strange. I thought all the news agencies used the same consortium for exit poll data, but Fox News lists New York at 50-48 for Obama among white voters and Connecticut at 49-49. CNN lists New York at 49-49 and Connecticut at 51-48 for Obama.

  9. @FBI Agent Doom

    – Athough I have no doubt that there was widespread voter fraud by the Democrats last week, I also accept that, disappointingly, a sufficient number of blue-collar and retired white people in the Northern states just plain honestly voted for the nigger. But it’s not worth getting upset over. It was an empty, pyrrhic victory for the Left, and may prove to be their final undoing.

  10. I think we can now definitively call the white vote in all 50 states. If we split the difference between Fox News and CNN’s numbers, then white New Yorkers voted 49.5-48.5 for Romney and Connecticut whites 50-48.5 for Obama.

    As for Delaware, where there is no exit poll data, looking at the demographic data (it’s 21% black and 14% other non-white) and the fact that the white vote in neighbouring Maryland collapsed by 13 points between 2008 and 2012 (from 56% to 43%; whites in Delaware voted 55% for Obama in 2008), I think we can safely say that Romney won the white vote in Delaware this year.

    So Romney won the whites-only electoral vote by a whopping 473-65, while Obama won the non-whites-only EV by an even more crushing 538-0. Obama clearly owes his victory to the non-white vote.

  11. Apparently Jesse Helms was good friends with Ian Smith, I know he used to sneak loopholes into Rhodesian sanction legislation. Hopefully someone will return the favor someday when sanctions are levied against us.

    Iran maybe??

    In 59 Philadelphia voting divisions, Mitt Romney got zero votes

    It’s one thing for a Democratic presidential candidate to dominate a Democratic city like Philadelphia, but check out this head-spinning figure: In 59 voting divisions in the city, Mitt Romney received not one vote. Zero. Zilch.

    These are the kind of numbers that send Republicans into paroxysms of voter-fraud angst, but such results may not be so startling after all.

    “We have always had these dense urban corridors that are extremely Democratic,” said Jonathan Rodden, a political science professor at Stanford University. “It’s kind of an urban fact, and you are looking at the extreme end of it in Philadelphia.” (snip)

    Still, was there not one contrarian voter in those 59 divisions, where unofficial vote tallies have President Obama outscoring Romney by a combined 19,605 to 0 (snip)

    “I’d be surprised if there weren’t a handful of precincts that didn’t cast a vote for Romney,” he said. But the number of zero precincts in Philadelphia deserves examination, Sabato added.

    “Not a single vote for Romney or even an error? That’s worth looking into,” he said.

  13. Maybe we can get Nate Silver to turn his excel spreadsheet toward calculating the odds that such an election day result is accurate. Hell, I’ll do it. Hang on.

  14. To hell with Romney and to hell with the Republican Party. And to hell with all the Johnny Rebs on this site who used voting for Romney as some sort of litmus test of ideological purity for everyone else in the country and yet were such elitist vanguardists that they didn’t vote for Romney themselves? Hypocrites.

    Like Damone in “Fast Times at Ridgemont High,” I come here for the stRudel.

  15. “In 59 Philadelphia voting divisions, Mitt Romney got zero votes.”

    That’s the Quaker city, all united in brotherly love.

  16. The simplest mathematics: Obama was OFF 10 MILLION VOTES from ’08. He didn’t win. Romney lost. And he lost not only to Obama. He lost to McCain ’08 by 2 MILLION VOTES. What is the discriminant between McCain and Romney? One issue: gun rights. McCain was excellent, Romney a career gun-grabber, and his August ’11 NRA manuever fooled no one. Romney lost because millions of HardRight White gunsels went to the gun shop instead of the voting booth. “Yankees”? They simply did their usual, and the NE states’ results had nil to do with the outcome. From now on, secesh, it’s bullets not ballots.
