RNC Demographics (if the Broadcast Version Left You Confused)

Ben Lowy RNC demographics

More piercing of the filter via Instagram….

With that “rainbow” line-up on the RNC stage this past week (you’d think Romney was outpolling Obama 77 – 23% with Hispanics, not the other way around) and the media continuing that condescending practice of isolating on one black face in the audience after another when an African-American happened to be speaking, this Ben Lowy photo of the bedrock (and steel jawed) core of the GOP is almost a relief to see.
