The industrious blog The Audacious Epigone

â€? among those who care about illegal immigration the most, Republicans won big, 69%-26%.
To me that means that getting voters to think about immigration is a winner for the GOP. Audacious Epigone
sees matters differently, but does note that by only asking voters about the less radioactive topic of immigration
as distinct from illegal immigration
, exit pollsters succeed in underreporting the publicâ€™s level of concern in the overall issue.
â€? McCain won in Arizona for Sailer Strategy reasons
He lost 40%-57% among Hispanics to Rodney Glassmanâ€¦Yetâ€¦still sailed to an easy victory because he won the far more important white vote by a wide margin, 64%-29%.
â€? Kentucky offers another reason to find joy in the phrase "the children are our future". Rand Paul pulled off a nearly impossible feat for a Republican in a tight statewide election—he won the 18-24 year old vote, 52%-47%.
â€? Despite the presumption many have of Christine O`Donnell as a Christian kook, she won among whites in Delaware, 51%-45%. She lost her Senate bid because more than one-fifth of the state`s electorate is black, and blacks voted against her 93%-6%, nearly the same rate that blacks voted for Obama in the `08 presidential election.Audacious Epigone
has audaciously proposed a reason for this gap, but Peter Brimelow
has prudishly forbidden me from quoting it.
