What if Only White People Voted?

People over at buzzfeed put together some really interesting electoral maps of the 2012 election based off of past suffrage rights.

The map below shows the electoral consequences of a white only 2012 presidential vote. As you can see, Obama would have lost rather soundly — albeit still not as badly as Carter lost in 1980.

In sum: PEOPLE OF COLOR YOUR VOTE MATTERS! EVERYWHERE.
