Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:
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.
