Poll: 0 percent of blacks support Mitt Romney
President Barack Obama continues to beat Mitt Romney among African American voters with a staggering 94 percent to 0 percent lead, according to a poll released Tuesday.
The NBC/Wall Street Journal poll — which gives Obama and Vice President Joe Biden a small lead over Romney and his running mate Paul Ryan — shows Obama has a massive lead over his Republican rival in the key political base of African-American voters, NBCNews.com reported.
Yes, blacks have long been the base of the Democratic Party. Even more so now that one of their own sits in the Oval Office. But that never meant a Republican wasn’t able to snag at least a few black supporters.
President George W. Bush got 11 percent of the black vote in 2004. That was up 2 points from the contested 2000 presidential election. Sen. John McCain didn’t do so well against Obama. Still, he was able to persuade 4 percent of African American voters to cast a ballot for him.
Obama also beats Romney among Latinos, voters under 35 and women, while Romney does better than Obama with whites, rural voters and seniors.
