    Can't find the link, but I remember reading somewhere that whites under 40 actually voted for Romney. Just by smaller margins than their parents.

      of whites, under 29, went for Romney. Obama got just 44% of them. In all other white age groups it was 38 or 39% for Obama.
      And that is a blend of men and women... I haven't found a state where white men were close to white women in voting Dem.
      CNN exit poll
      They don't show sex/age/race together but overall white men went 35% Obama, white women 42%.
      That's a male thing across races
      Black males 87  Women 96
      Latino males 65  Women 76

      In several states  Obama won white women but not white men... and that includes CA and New York!
      But in other states he won both groups and even all ages
      (Long live Vermont!)
