Democrats attracted fewer white voters on Election Day than in any other midterm election since World War II, according to a  RealClearPolitics report. Republicans won whites in Tuesday's U.S.  House vote by a 22-percentage point margin (60 to 38 percent), according to exit polls.

white, flght, democrats, pollsRepublicans won whites by just 4 points in 2006.

Whites defected at three times the rate of Hispanics between the two midterms — while the black vote remained fixed.

Democrats made out even worse than in 1994 — when Republicans won whites by 16 points (58 to 42 percent).

"Most whites have favored a smaller government over a bigger government for decades. Obama's agenda heralded the return of big government, or active-state liberalism. He gave the boldest liberal push since the Great Society," writes David Paul Kuhn for RealClear Politics.
