A lot of blacks are still enslaved in the plantation that is the Democratic Party.
I really think that Bush could capture more of the black vote if he would go on the "black church circuit". President Bush's message is one of hope, faith, and true Christian values that will appeal to many blacks in this country. They just don't hear it because the NAACP, Jesse Jackson, and BET all say that Republicans are racists without examining the facts.
If Bush could increase his black support by 5-10%, it would elminate the Democrats' chances of winning the election.
There's a reason for this..
With a few exceptions, most blacks that Democrats have put in office are there because they can be manipulated, and are already in positions way over their depth..
Dems have picked and placed these politicians for the most part.
Those black democrats that are critical thinkers have long ago bought into the practice of manipulating their own people.. good practice for manipulating a political party..
Now the Democratic Party is afraid to allow these intelligent free operators into prominent party positions.. where they could conceivably consolidate their power, combine with other black free-operator democrats, and eventually take over the Democratic Party...
The Democrats only hope at this point, is that Black Politicians with critical thinking skills, that cannot be manipulated, that refuse to be "tools" of the Liberal Party, will all become Conservatives, leaving the Democratic Party with a continuing weak-willed, easily directed black democratic membership..
