    It didn't happen over night. It took some 60 years of consistent compromise and abandonment for Blacks to make a wholesale decision to leave the party of Lincoln. Just as Republicans are not doing anything to win back the Black vote that they finally lost in 1934, they seem intent on further alienating the proverbial 47% of the white vote that Romney wrote off. Even if they change their tactics (which is very unlikely) they will not change their intentions.
