Blacks outvoted whites in 2012, the first time on record
A new Census Bureau report provides more evidence that the changing demographics of the United States are having a deep impact at the voting booth.
The report on the 2012 election found that for the first time on record, black voters turned out to the presidential polls at a higher rate than whites. More than 66% of eligible blacks voted in the presidential contest that pit President Barack Obama against Republican nominee Mitt Romney. Only 64.1% of whites turned out to vote.
