Oversight? Team Obama's Post-Election 'Constituency Groups' List Offers No Choice for 'Whites' or 'Caucasians


After they helped him get reelected earlier this month, President Barack Obama is asking his supporters to complete a post-election survey and identify themselves as part of a certain "constituency group." There are 22 groups to choose from, including African-Americans, Arab Americans, Latinos, Youth, LGBT, Women and even "People of faith."

However, there are no choices available for "white" or "Caucasian." The discrepancy, which is likely an unintended oversight, has some people scratching their heads. While there is also no choice for "men" in the constituency checklist like there is for "women," the survey asks supporters to identify themselves as "male, female or other/no answer" in another section.

The post-election survey, at the time of this writing, was still available at barackobama.com. The survey's stated purpose is to help move the organization "forward."

"Which constituency groups do you identify yourself with? Select all that apply," the survey reads. The 22 groups are listed below:


Notice the omission? It is hard to believe that the Obama team would intentionally leave out such a large voting block.

"Your hard work and passion defined this campaign and re-elected President Obama," the survey reads. "Now, we're counting on you to help take this organization forward as we continue our work beyond 2012."

CNSNews.com caught a tweet from President Obama's official Twitter account directing his followers to take the survey, saying "This movement has always belonged to you. Take a few minutes to help shape its future."
