Cummings Says Blacks Will Again Turn Out for Obama

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said he believes President Barack Obama can count on another historic turnout of black voters in 2012, despite flagging enthusiasm for his presidency among some liberal groups.

Black voters "feel that the president is going up a mountain of ice. They feel that he has done miraculous things under the greatest of opposition," Cummings said. "They will want him to serve another term. Because I think most of them realize this is probably a once-in-a-lifetime situation," Cummings said.
