The Democrat Plan for Race-Based Victory

For conservatives, Barack Obama's presidency represents such an obvious failure that they can't understand why the contest is even close. Among the 75 percent of the electorate classified as "non-Hispanic white" it isn't close, in fact, with 60 percent support or more for Mitt Romney.

The problem is that in the quarter of the voting public that's non-white, Obama prevails with a crushing 80 percent. This situation explains the shameful Democratic emphasis on racial issues and charges of GOP bigotry: if they can push Obama's support among blacks, Latinos and Asians close to 90 percent, they can win despite emphatic rejection by America's white majority.

That's why the top future political priority for the GOP must be building a more substantial base in the nation's non-white communities, to overcome knee-jerk support that gives Democrats such a powerful advantage.
