Self-Identification

Seeing as how most African-American voters do not identify themselves as Republican (only 4 percent identified themselves as such in 2008 and 2012) very few of those votes in 2012 went to GOP candidates. In this photo, Leo Smith, right, minority engagement director for the Georgia Republican Party, talks with Rev. John C. Hearst following a service for the 137th anniversary of Mount Zion First Baptist Church in Smyrna, Georgia.
