I know Obama won big amongst African-Americans, but I am quite surprised to see he got 100% in some precincts as I believe around 6% of African-Americans and over 10% amongst African-American males voted for Romney.  Or could it be the African-Americans who voted for Romney are the more well off ones who live in the suburbs where their numbers are much smaller so tough to gage how they vote?

I really question that Romney ended up winning 10 percent of African-American males.. There comes a point where Exit Polls can't be taken literally cause, like all polls, there are margins of error.

Most of the African Americans that Romney won probably live in rural areas.

Most of the African Americans that Romney won probably live in rural areas.

That makes some sense, at least outside the South as the heavily African-American counties there voted massively for Obama.  I would also add the affluent suburban ones, otherwise those with household incomes over $100,000 and reside in the wealthy neighborhoods or suburbs. 

It is true many working class whites vote Democrat, but many are also in smaller urban centres as opposed to large metropolitan ones and likewise many respond the populist appeal of the GOP while this repels a lot of the African-Americans as many of the populists have racial overtones.
