Remember when Mitt Romney told Fox News that he had super secret black supporters? Turns out they’re so secret that they don’t even know they support Mitt Romney.
According to the latest NBC/WSJ poll, Mittens is getting exactly zero percent love from black people:
After Mitt Romney selected his vice presidential running mate, and just days before the political conventions kick off next week, President Barack Obama maintains his advantage in the race for the White House, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
Looking inside the numbers, Obama continues to lead Romney among key parts of his political base, including African Americans (94 percent to 0 percent), Latinos (by a 2-to-1 margin), voters under 35-years-old (52 percent to 41 percent) and women (51 percent to 41 percent).
Romney is ahead with whites (53 percent to 40 percent), rural voters (47 percent to 38 percent) and seniors (49 percent to 41 percent).
This of course has led to hilarity on Twitter, where a handful of black people (including one guy whose avatar is half black guy and half Andrew Breitbart – scary!) are tweeting things like, “We exist. We exist. We exist.” as if chanting “bloody Mary” in order to convince themselves that they really do exist. White conservatives are congratulating “their blacks” for escaping the Democratic plantation, veering off the path through the cotton-field of ignorance, and daring to do something they call “thinking for themselves.” Their blacks are better! High five!
