Yes, many of us AAs are going to vote for Romney. We are shocked ourselves and so disappointed on one hand, but we also know what we have to do. So many of us can only see he's "One of us and if we don't support him, we don't have no one else." That's the mindset. And Obama knows it.
If Romney can put AAs to work he will be able to "begin a monumental shift'" in loyalty from the Dems, especially with the rift between the vocal, black church "diehards" and the Dem. platform agenda.
