Thank goodness for the 15th and 24th Amendments.

This is interesting (and scary!), it shows who's sense in the US and who hasn't.

In reply to Hugh J: Not quite that simple in reality. The democrats looking to follow progressive moves like these ammendments lost a lot of their support in the south. hence if they hadnt been progressive a lot more racist sexist folk would have voted for them.

In reply to Hugh J: Pretty much the opposite results would occur if you excluded men and/or white people. 93% of African-Americans voted for Obama, for example.

In reply to Steve John B: But that was never a reality, unlike before the 15th and 24th amendments, when it was just white men who could vote. As I said, shows who's got the sense when it comes to politics in the US (IMO). Does that mean 7% of the African-American actually voted for Romney?
