There was a record amount of voters in the 2008 election - 130 million
It was the largest number of African-Americans that voted in that election in the history of the United States.
The African-American Community accounted for 12.1% of the vote.
Of the African-American Community there was 95% that voted for President Obama.
President Obama beat Senator McCain by a margin of 52.9% to 45.7%, a difference of 7.2%.
If President Obama does not get the African-American base energized like he did in 2008, he is probably toast.
I think that the African-American community will look at President Obama's record and there will only be a 9% showing, based on past elections. That 3% gap could be quite big, since the Moderates and Independents with a brain looking at an increase in the National Debt from 10 Trillion to 15.4 Trillion are probably not going to vote for the President like they did in 2008!
