2012 Presidential Race Decided Upon Swing Vote States

  By Terrance H. Booth, Sr. -- Tsimshian Tribe

"The 2012 Presidential election is very close can be decided upon 10 swing vote states; including:    Politico identifies 10 swing states that will most likely decide the 2012 election. Obama leads in nine of them: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio, Virginia, and Wisconsin. Romney leads Obama by one percent in the swing state of North Carolina." [1]

The following states being targeted by Native Vote, National Congress of American Indian, a non-partisan and non-profit to educate and register new voters.   Alaska Native and Native American population on voter education and registration for following states:   Alaska, Florida, Michigan, Nevada, North Dakota, South Dakota, Arizona, Iowa, Minnesota, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Washington, Colorado, Massachusetts, Montana, and North Carolina, Oregon and Wisconsin where the voting numbers are increasing with efforts having the largest Alaska Native and Native American voter turnout in 2012 elections.   The States in bold and in italics are the swing state Native Vote is working upon which is six of the ten states both presidential candidates are targeting with a close vote by both candidates the Alaska Native and Native American voters are in a position to elect the Office of the President.   [2]

"If these swing vote states hold up in an election that requires 270 out of 538 electoral votes to win a majority, Obama would gain 111 electoral votes to Romney's 15. States that appear solid or leaning for Obama give him an additional 221 electoral votes. Romney's solid or leaning state electoral votes total 191. These figures add up to 332 for Obama and 206 for Romney, more than enough to give Obama the winning total."   [3]

Bloc voting is not new to Native American voters:   "Ridge to Johnson; the result was unsurprising.   In the year, 2000 election in Washington State the Native American vote made a difference in the outcome of a new US Senator.   Comment on the Native American participation after the election. The result in Washington State in 2000 was not lost on Capitol Hill. Whether it was Party strategists, Members of Congress, lobbyists, the media or the political commentaries, the message is that the Alaska Native and Native Americans are now important political players.   Native Vote should be feared and/or courted, especially in states with a substantial Native population where a race could be close. [4] Alaska Native and Native American Voters let us make a resounding voice and let us be heard this election year.
