If President Barack Obama wins, he will be the popular choice of Hispanics, African-Americans, single women and highly educated urban whites. That’s what the polling has consistently shown in the final days of the campaign. It looks more likely than not that he will lose independents, and it’s possible he will get a lower percentage of white voters than George W. Bush got of Hispanic voters in 2000.It's looking pretty clear that President Obama will win re-election. But we really don't know yet how big that win will be. That's not what these folks are talking about though. What they're saying is that no matter how big the win is - if he doesn't get enough of the white vote - it can't be a mandate.
A broad mandate this is not.
Remember half-term Governor Palin's shit about "real America?" Yeah, that's what these folks are doing too.
