-- Republicans have won the White House in 2012 it Mitt Romney had carried more of the black vote.
According to Fox News exit polls only 6% of African Americans voted for Romney even though.
50% said they were worried about the economy.
Can the next wave of Republicans changed that -- Murdoch is -- syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor who -- When you Steve are you you say -- going forward in future elections Republicans can win back the White House.
But they've got to do a better job at attracting the black -- exactly right and that's what I -- -- members of the -- of the GOP does that have to win.
The entire black -- -- half the black vote.
Particularly in tight races if the Republican candidate wins 15% 20%.
Of the black vote these stalwart Democrat base it's very very wobbly -- when -- facts in the black vote and most likely you won the election especially in very tight races we do with liberal college.
Swing states do you know what I would think that one of the you don't.
Generally people vote with their pocketbooks and when you when you look at the unemployment in the African commute African American community right now it's it.
Thirteen point 8%.
You know if people are gonna vote for who's gonna create jobs.

And I don't think any Republican night I heard midpoint in the made -- the point that the unemployment rate for black folks went up.
While Obama was present as the median income went down I mean things did not get better for black people under Obama ironically but Mitt Romney didn't make that case and -- -- Republicans make that case.
And -- Republicans always are tarred with the brush that oh they're the racist party the regular party.
If you may run had gone out and shaken like -- gone in campaign in black neighborhoods not only do I think some black folks would have responded well to that.

What are racist party.
Exactly I mean they GOP should be talked about this all the time not just right for elections this should be a year round effort as the Republican National Committee said they -- that they would begin to do.
And it should be a year -- constant effort to make this point to defuse this whole concept the GOP is a racist party which it's not.
They're trying to do make progress in the school choice for example here you generally see the Democratic Party -- the way of vouchers can we have of school reform and the Republicans pushing for this.
Which of course is benefit for a black kids in the inner city.
And they ought to be making this effort talking about it and not hiding which is what they usually do in this uncertain this -- great stuff -- -- Droid Murdoch we think you're my ignorance like that right.
