Obama Constituency Survey Excludes Whites, Men

A post-election online survey asking supporters of President Barack Obama which “constituency groups” they most identify with, lists 22 groups, none of which are for “whites” or “men,” according to CNSNews.com.

Examples of the groups listed include “Latinos,” “African Americans,” “Arab Americans,” “Asian Americans,” “Educators,” “Environmentalists,” “Youth,” “Students,” “People with disabilities,” and “LGBT” (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) among others.

The survey was done by staffers from Obama’s re-election campaign and introduced on Monday by a Tweet from Obama saying, “This movement has always belonged to you. Take a few minutes to help shape its future.”

In addition to thanking them for their support in 2012, the survey tells supporters that by taking the time to fill out the questionnaire, the Obama campaign will be able to “help take this organization forward as we continue our work beyond 2012.”

According to CNS News, the Obama campaign refused to comment on the survey despite repeated attempts by its reporters.

Republican Mitt Romney won the white vote by 20 points in the November election, 59 to 39 percent, with men overall voting for Romney by seven points, 52 to 45 percent, according to the Pew Research Center. Despite this, Obama was able to win the election through expanding his existing coalition of constituencies that consist of women, minorities and young people.

Many political analysts who predicted prior to the election that Obama would see less support from key constituencies, considering unemployment for Black and Hispanic Americans was 14.3 and 10 percent respectively, were proven wrong.

In the 2012 election, 93 percent of black voters and 71 percent of Latino voters supported Obama, according to Pew.

While many on the left have repeatedly defined the Republican party as the party of old, white men, Breitbart.com reporter William Bigelow in regards to the president’s “constituency groups” survey concluded, “Apparently, in Obama’s world, there are white men on one side, and everyone else on his side.”
