CNN: 3% increase in black GOP vote nationally

According to CNN's stats, the black GOP vote increased to 11% of the total electorate, a 3% increase over the 2000 figures.

As I've said repeatedly, anything beyond a single percentage point increase is something that must be considered a total victory for black voter outreach by the Republican Party.

I'm very pleased.

I betcha the number is greater than that because this is that same erroraneous exit polling crap. Democrats and its media still want to keep the black americans on the plantation for 2008. I know quite a large numbers of new black american Bush supporters this election, including at my church. I saw black americans with Bush/Cheney signs in thier yards and on cars and amazingly putting them up here in Virginia. This election probably brought in new voters nationwide (first time and crossovers). I don't think they were all voting for Kerry. We need to get a fair count, not what democrats and its biased media want you to beleive. Don't ask the NAACP, they are just the plantation overseers.

I noticed an increase of black volunteers through this election cycle. It is just a start we must continue to work at it.

I'm up for the task, but don't expect it will be easy.

I'm pleased too. But you should have heard the whining from Sean P. Puff Daddy Diddy Combs today over how he spent millions on his Vote or Die campaign, and how he's sure that the pollsters are wrong and undercounting the black young urban vote, blah, blah, blah.

The truth is, in NYC more the number of Young Black Republicans increased considerably. I guess it's a backlash to his Hip Hop political revolution.

Was it 3 percentage points or three percent? Three percent is paltry. But a move from 8 to 11 percent is a 3/8 or thirty seven and a half per cent increase, which is pretty stunning.
