The 1992 Republican "Tent": No Blacks Walked In
Louis Bolce, Gerald De Maio, and Douglas Muzzio analyze the 1992 elections, reexamining the proposition advanced by some Republican strategists and political commentators that the GOP could attain majority party status by attracting 20 percent of the African American vote. Presidential and congressional exit poll data show no politically relevant black subgroup supported George Bush. His defeat resulted from the defection of key white demographic, socioeconomic and ideological Republican support groups --mainly to independent presidential candidate Ross Perot.
