2012 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION
The Media, the People, and Public Opinion
There were a number of forces that were behind the outcome of the 2012 Presidential
Election. The American public, the international community, and special interest groups and
organizations to name a few.
The American people goes without saying because without the American people there
would be no democratic process of electing the U.S. president. The Voter turnout fell from 62.3
percent of eligible citizens voting in the 2008 election to an estimated 57.5 in 2012. There was an
estimated drop of five million in voter turnout. Every state but Iowa and Louisiana showed a
decline in the percentage of turnout and the number of ballots casts were down everywhere
except Delaware, Iowa, Louisiana, North Carolina, North Dakota, and Wisconsin.("2012 Voter
Turnout", 2012). Despite the slight decline in voter turnout the 2012 election was historical. It is
the first time that blacks have voted at a higher rate than whites since the Census Bureau started
publishing statistics on voting by the eligible citizen population in 1996. According to the data
about two in three eligible blacks (66.2 percent) voted in the 2012 presidential election, which is
slightly higher than the 64.1 percent of non-Hispanic whites that participated in the 2012 election.
The 2012 increase in voting among blacks continues a long-term trend among the black voting
population. Since1996, turnout rates have risen thirteen percentage points to the highest levels of
any recent presidential election. Alternately, after reaching a high in 2004, non-Hispanic white
voting rates have dropped in both the 2008 and 2012 elections. Both blacks and non-Hispanic
whites had voting proportions higher than Hispanics and Asians in the 2012 election. The
differences between the genders in voting continued its ongoing pattern. Since 1996, women
have voted at higher rates than men. In 2012, the spread was about four percentage points. The
difference was particularly large among black voters, among whom it reached nine percentage
