White Men Can't Jump

Digby (via ERG):

Last night I overheard someone say,"It's not like the Democrats could ever win a real election -- w/o women and blacks they've got nothing"

Politico (via LGM):

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.

A broad mandate this is not.

Indeed, if we only count white men, then Republicans would always win, just like the Federalists always did before the Civil War.

Olson Johnson: All right... we'll give some land to the niggers and the chinks. But we don't want the Irish!
