  1. Obviously the dubious Romney was only a dubious *conservative* for some/many Elephant white voters.

    i.e. many of them did NOT vote.

  2. Actually, a lot of whites who voted for Obama in 2008 simply chose to stay home. Even tho Obama won the election, he did so with nearly 4,000,000 fewer votes than in 2008.
