Did white men cost Romney the election?

Mitt Romney lost the election after an ‘extraordinary’ collapse in support among white men, the very group the Republicans counted on to turn out for him.

As the official inquest into the defeat got underway, the former Presidential candidate’s own pollster revealed his lead among white males was cut from 27 points to as low as 12 points.

    Isaiah 45:12-14
    New King James Version (NKJV)

    12 I have made the earth,
    And created man on it.
    I—My hands—stretched out the heavens,
    And all their host I have commanded.
    13 I have raised him up in righteousness,
    And I will direct all his ways;
    He shall build My city
    And let My exiles go free,
    Not for price nor reward,”
    Says the Lord of hosts.

    The Lord, the Only Savior
    14 Thus says the Lord:

    “The labor of Egypt and merchandise of Cush
    And of the Sabeans, men of stature,
    Shall come over to you, and they shall be yours;
    They shall walk behind you,
    They shall come over in chains;
    And they shall bow down to you.
    They will make supplication to you, saying,
    ‘Surely God is in you,
    And there is no other;
    There is no other God.’”

    2 Corinthians 4:13-15
    New King James Version (NKJV)

    13 And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written,
    “I believed and therefore I spoke,”[a]
    we also believe and therefore speak,

    14 knowing that He who raised up the Lord Jesus
    will also raise us up with Jesus, and will present us with you.

    15 For all things are for your sakes, that grace,
    having spread through the many,
    may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God.
