    points to a more diverse electorate. Just look at how North Carolina's racial breakdown of regitered voters has changed in 4 years:

    1/1/08
    76.7% White

    20.3% Black
    0.8% Hispanic
    0.8% Am. Ind.
    1.5% Other

    11/4/08
    74.5% White

    22.0% Black
    1.1% Hispanic
    0.8% Am. Ind.
    1.6% Other

    9/22/12
    71.9% White

    22.1% Black
    1.6% Hispanic
    0.8% Am. Ind.
    3.6% Other

    Non-white voters, who were 25.5% of NC's registered voters in 11/08 are now at 28.1%. Registrations of non-white voters have outpaced registrations of white voters by 3-1 since 2008.

    The Republican idea that we will see a repeat of the 2010 electorate this year is a fantasy. If anything, the NC vote should be a couple points more Democratic in 2012 than in 2008.
