Blacks for Bush

Well not many. But Clarence Page says enough to make a difference. He has a number of quotes from David Bositis of the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, a leading think tank on black-oriented issues.

Bositis, the center's senior political analyst, inserted a cautionary note: He thinks Bush will get more like 12 percent to 14 percent at best. Even so, a black defection that large would almost certainly signal doom for Kerry.

What accounts for this black surge in support for Bush?

Bositis says most of it comes from conservative, churchgoing African-Americans who are over age 50, opposed to gay marriage and have not experienced a decline in their incomes during the Bush years.

On the flip side, Kerry's strongest support among African-Americans comes from adults between the ages of 18 and 35 who feel financially worse off than the older generations, according to poll takers.
