Ryan Powers observes that conservative talk radio host Michael Savage thinks that “the only people who don’t seem to vote based on race are whites of European origin.”

This is a pretty bizarre point of view. It’s quite common to see African-Americans voting in droves for a white politician. By contrast, you almost never see a black politician win a majority of the white vote. And for a long time southern whites oriented their partisan affiliations entirely around their goal maintaining a white monopoly on political power.
