It Seems That Romney’s Audiences Aren’t Diverse Enough

I was reading a piece in Real Clear Politics by Erin McPike concerning Mitt Romney’s recent campaigning in Ohio and came across this passage:

Of course, his audiences here (Troy, Ohio) and in Brunswick and Newark, Ohio, and in each of his stops along the way, weren’t particularly diverse. They were middle-aged and older white suburbanites, as opposed to some of the larger and more eclectic crowds that Obama can attract on college campuses and in urban areas.

Ah yes, the crowds that come to see Romney speak aren’t diverse enough for Ms. McPike’s liking. Middle-aged and white suburbanites apparently can’t be eclectic. This line of argument reminds me of people who complain about the Tea Party being too white. Well, it’s good to know that Tea Partiers and now people who attend Romney rallies are being judged by the color of their skin instead of the content of their character. As for McPike, I suppose her idea of diversity are unkempt Occupiers who are white and plan to vote for Obama in November.
