Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Democrats have been taking massive percentages of black voters for decades, because Republicans became the party of white racists.  Obama did a little better than Democrats usually do, but because black folks are a small portion of the population, and because the share taken by the Dem only increased by about 5 points, it really didn't make a huge difference, even taking the higher black turnout into account.

Obama drove excitement, but blacks voting over 90% Dem is nothing new.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
