    Whenever there are blanket statements of Romney winning among whites under the age of 30 for example. I'm thinking results from the South skew any numbers dealing with white voters.
    On the other hand the GOP thought Pennsylvania and Michigan should be in play and Ohio be Romney territory when polls showed Romney with a big lead among blue collar white males. Problem was it was mostly due to the South.
    So maybe we let them keep that delusion as well.

      incomplete, but making some assumptions from what we have, it's safe to assume that Obama won among whites 18-34 in the West, the Midwest, and the Northeast, while in the South it was at best 30%.
