    Romney is loosing the three most important minority groups. I do not like the word minority, but cannot think of a better word at the moment.

    The following groups are moving away from Romney and he and the Republicans have only themselves to blame.

    Latino vote
    Women's vote
    African American's vote.

    Romney and the Republicans appear to be running a look to the past strategy. Basically they appear to want to move the country back to a time period before the 1960's. It is a self-defeating strategy. If you expect to win you do not alienate, insult and marginalize groups and then expect them to vote for your candidates.

    On women:

    On African American voters:

    So what is new CrabTownBoy?

    Are we to believe anything you quote from the Huffington Post and the Clinton News Network?

    The black folks are like you CTB, they have sold themselves to the Socialist/democrat party.

    Sadly a sufficient number of women are pro "slaughter the unborn" like you CTB that they will likely vote for what? unfettered abortion.

    As for the Latino vote????????

    So exactly what is it that you think Romney and the Republicans are doing to those three groups? I bet Romney could take the same stance as Obama on every issue and those three groups would still chart the way that they currently chart.

    :laugh:

    Republicans want to bring us back into the 60's.....

    This is what happens when you have an irrational hatred. You are saying the reublicans want to bring us back under democrat control, where hooded thugs refused to let blacks vote, with full support of the democrat governors and their appointed judges, and where democrat lawmakers filibustered a civil rights bill.

    :laugh:

    Had Obama done a decent job, even as a moderate, the groups might have made a difference in some states. Remember, Presidents are elected by electoral votes in individual states. For example, had Obama done at least something to appeal to the average American, his attraction to the black community could have made a difference in the South, where white evangelicals do not like Romney. It could have made a difference in the interior West, where Latinos surely do not care for Romney's promises on immigration.

    He could have won by a landslide. Instead, he chose to push a ultra liberal agenda, and failed. If he does win, it will be by the skin of his teeth. The only reason he is still in the running is because of the quality of the Republican candidate.

    Liberal is dangerous, but very dangerous when mixed with stupid.

    This is not an exhaustive list ... but it is a start. I am sure you can do some research and find more reasons.

    Women:

    The Republican invasion of the bed room. I am not speaking about abortion here.

    The Republican blocking the 'equal pay bill'.

    Hindering access to health care. I am not speaking about abortion here.

    The Republican blockage of the Violence Against Women Act.


    Latinos:

    The Arizona law and other states that have passed draconian laws concerning Hispanics and Latinos.

    Their perception, right or wrong, that various states are intentionally interfering with the access to vote.

    For the women of this group add the list from above about women.

    African Americans:

    Surely you can figure this one out for yourself.

    So what are we talking about?

    A bill accomplishing the exact same thing had just been passed the previous year, so why waste time trying to pass another? They still haven't passed a budget yet continue to want to waste time passing legislation that doesn't need to be passed.

    How has it been hindered? Who doesn't have access to healthcare? Do you mean government-sponsored, "free" healthcare?

    How are the Republicans in the House blocking its passage anymore than the Dems in the Senate are blocking its passge?

    Latinos:

    The laws are against ILLEGALS. You guys seem to not want the laws applied equally.

    It's their perception so why is this a problem?

    For the women of this group add the list from above about women.

    African Americans:

    No I can't. That's why I asked. You made the statement so surely you've got some stuff in mind.:laugh:

    The only Republicans in my bedroom are my wife and I. CTB if anyone invades your bedroom call the police!

    Actually the statement: "The Republican invasion of the bed room." is democrat code for "Republicans oppose the slaughter of the unborn"!

    Women already control most of the wealth in the country.

    Is this what is called an ad hominem attack?

    You need to support your charges CTB otherwise I must consider this another ad hominem! Tell me CTB: Were all Republicans just hatched? don't they have mothers? do they have daughters?

    Laughable if not so asinine. You should live where illegals are flooding the region, where Walmart is like a foreign country.

    Only citizens who read and write English are constitutionally eligible to vote. Not that the Constitution means anything to a democrat.

    ad hominem, ad hominem!

    You afraid to say?

    CrabTownBoy?

    A philosophical question for you to ponder while you are searching left wing websites!

    How can you lose something you don't have?

    He never had the African vote, he is not losing the women's vote, and we will see where the Latino's will be come election day.

    Women are a minority?

    Isn't the ratio of men to women pretty much 50/50?

    Apparently the abortionists are trying to even things up with the sex selection abortions.
