Arrow US election: Breaking it down by social groups



Source: www.electoral-vote.com

Very interesting, but NOT surprising. I don't think anyone would be suprised by those figures.

Conclusion: The future is bright!

Young people 18-29 and a whole heap of minorities like African-Americans, Latinos and Jewish people generally prefer Democrats.

Michael Moore on his webpage said something like in 50 years, whites will no longer be the majority in America.

One can only hope he's right.

The future is bright indeed. Bring on Obama, he's the Democrats' best card.

Thank you for this analysis, I had been wondering how the votes were distributed among the population.

2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!
26.03.2009: More Kim years to come!

Well in 50 years time most white countries will have lost most of thier national identity, i dont think thats a thing to celebrate IMO.

The next big thing: Voegele

Yeah, but there's a missing stat: what % of population is to be put in each category (protestant, catholic, jewish and no religion)...

I have absolutely no clue, but it'd be interesting to analyze this in further details!

I read somewhere that 29% of people who identify themselves as gay voted for Bush, why, exactly, I am not sure.

If by "bright" you mean "people are going to vote democrat", then no, not necessarily. People generally get more conservative as they get older... young people will always be more "liberal" than older generations... that doesn't necessarily tell us anything about the future.

What you said about minorities may hold true, but policies and blah could change if "minorities" do indeed become the majority, so we'll see

Obviously. But, my question is why exactly, especially in this election where their status is being debated.

Their marital status... perhaps they don't care about getting married? Or maybe they do, but other Republican policies are more favourable to them then Dem ones so they weighed their choices and went Republican.

I don't think it's fair to assume that all homosexuals and all minorities should vote Dem and that those who don't are :retard: You may not be making that assumption and are expressiong genuine curiosity, but a number of people on this board do.

Well the only really thing being debated about them is the marriage issue. Since both parties have both said they are against this, then i guess they are just voting on what other issues best suit them.
