Ingraham: In the End,
Voters Didn’t Feel a
Connection With Romney

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/7/2012 3:03:29 PM

Laura Ingraham joined America Live Wednesday to reflect on Mitt Romney’s loss in the 2012 presidential election and what it should signal to Republicans. Ingraham acknowledged that the president ran a terrific campaign and in the end, people just couldn’t connect to Mitt Romney. According to Ingraham, people “didn’t really know, in the end, what [Romney] stood for.” She continued, “He talked about things like 12 million new jobs and [how] we’re going to free up the energy sector, but it wasn’t enough for people to sink their teeth into.” She argued that Romney avoided pressing

Comments:
I sure had more of a connection with Romney than Barack Hussein 0bama! I think this election was won on voter fraud. All the absentee ballots and early voting in those critical states could have been easily tampered with. But alas, it doesn't matter now does it?

Sorry Laura, but your wrong, I had a connection. Problem was that those who voted for Obama wanted free stuff.

Laura and other radio types spent the whole primary season running down Romney. Could that be a reason?

I paid attention. Was not a Romney fan in the spring, but by September, I was convinced of his integrity, his ability, his sincerity, kindness and generosity, and his love of country. I felt a deep connection and was proud to cast my vote for him. People who "didn't connect" were not able to do so because they got their news from John Stewart, Chris Matthews, and Brian Williams. Their image of Romney came from Dave Letterman and Saturday Night Live. I've come to the sad conclusion that we cannot reach an ignorant electorate.

If you didn't live in a swing state you had little connection to either candidate. Myself, I was damn proud to vote for Romney.

No Laura, Romney's reputatio was besmearched the minute he won the nomination; he was Palinized along with many other Republicans. The tactics has worked so often, you would think the Repubicans would have figured it out already.

What with all of this Connection crap?, I want them to be qualified for the job, that is all that matters, can and will they do the job, I don't have to connect with them or like them or have a relationship with them. I want them to follow the constitution and stay out of the way otherwise. Do we have to like them no, who cares what they look like, or their Religion, as long as it won't limit our freedoms. Really people, it has now become a popularity contest instead of a job. no wonder were in so much trouble!!! geez.

Laura is not one of my favorite people but don't hear her or see her much. Good thing, apparently one of those touchy feely gals. Who on earth would want to be connected in any fashion with that smarmy puke? Mitt was all man and easy to understand and you know he was telling the truth. The critter said what he would do and hasn't done a thing but travel, talk and spend taxpayers'money.

One more futile post - much of our electorate has become the kardashian nation, willing to grant fame to people who are famous for being famous and nothing more.
And now that Zero has a second term, his replacement will get ready by offering to continue the freebies to half the population.
I weep for our once great country.

I agree, I definintely connect more with a president who hobknobs with Hollywood, rappers, magazine editors, singers and the lefty elitist millionaires in this country. Yes sir, I surely do connect with those folks. I connect with them when I see them on tv and in magazines and in the movies. Yeah, they're my kinda folks. Listen up people, they've already retreated to their mansions. They are done with you until the next election cycle. They won't be around when you lose your job, your house, your savings, etc. They just expect you to keep purchasing their version of culture.
Regroup conservatives. Figure it out. Stop enabling these hoods, stop buying their products. Cut them off at the knees. Let's get in their faces this time. Let's put them out of work.

Ingraham is an idiot! She wants to double down on the very things that are wrong with the GOP. If you think Romney lost because he wasn't socially conservative enough - you are part of the problem.

Women are not going back to the fifties. It's never going to happen. Gays aren't going back into closet. Get over it. The GOP is stupid - stupid and unconscious. It's time to wake up and get to know the people who live in this country. The days of lecturing others on how they should live their lives are long gone.

The GOP is pretty much down to one good thing - fiscal conservatism - living within our means. That's really, really important - but as we just saw - it does not trump personal freedom.

I felt a true connection. Romney reminds me of my dad, who has love of family and a work ethic that won't quit. Now Obama can hit the golf course and tell the rest of us to pound sand. Our fellow countrymen reelected him so he can sit on his lazy butt as much as he wants to. And of course, it is time for Michelle to take Air Force One and 100 of her closest friends to a five star hotel in some exotic, expensive location, courtesy of the American taxpayers.

OK I am done reading why Romney lost..or voters didn't connect...its all hogwash

America had a choice...America or Amerika
high taxes...low taxes
open boarders...closed boarders
free healthcare for unions..no healthcare for senior citizens and children under the age of 15...
coal...or no coal...warmth or cold...

Seems Amerika wants from America...
Its not Romneys fault...his message was out there...just ask the thousands that showed up in Colorado...or the thousands that showed up outside of Cinn...and at the same time obama had 2800 people show up...the message was out there....but others wanted an Amerika instead

Agree entirely with OP.
This was the most fraudently held -- outright fraud encouraged election, I've ever witnessed.
Mitt Romney is a very smart man, I'm sure he knows this, but the worst thing he could do -- and probably the least effective is to make charges along these lines without the nearly impossible resources needed to prove it on as large a scale as it was perpetrated -- from the deliberately manufactured chaos of ''early voting'' to union maintenanced machines.
This election was stolen every bit as much as Saddam Hussein's last election in 2002. And the winner is celebrating with the same smugness and absence of shame.

As for Laura Ingraham, her particular zealousness for her newly found Catholicism (something that would be admirable on it's own) would not allow her to forgive Romney for winning the primary over Santorum or Gingrich either. Interviews during and after on EWTN made that plain. She's disingenuous at best on the subject of Mitt Romney. And unforgiving.
She's not that unhappy with the results.

I had the same sinking feeling about Romney as I did when we ran Dole, and McCain. Good men but no chance at all of winning. Going against Obama was futile considering all of the special interests out there king pinning on his re-election. So much at stake for free government money for everyone. Redistribution of wealth and taxing the rich is a hard thing to beat.
Plus fee money and free cell phones is good tasting voter candy. Add in gay marriage, immigration changes coming that will open the gates at the border and this country will be fundamentally transformed into a third world social state the likes no one could have ever imagined.
Times have changed. It is what it is. Now Obamacare is here to stay. Gas prices today are around $4 a gallon. In four years they will be around $8 a gallon.

I agreed with at least one of Romney's positions on most issues. Like when he was against gun control, and when he was against unions, and when he was against bailouts, and TARP, and free abortion on demand, and especially when he was against Obamacare... well, against "certain provisions" in Obamacare.

I just don't see why people couldn't make a connection, when he had so many stances on so many issues, you couldn't help but find something to agree with!

Come on, America!!!

Agree wholeheartedly with #11. It is a sad indictment of our political system that our country's future is being decided on "feelings of connections" rather than ability and political philosophy.

Clearly the experiment with universal suffrage has been proven to be a very bad idea. I mourn for my once great nation today.

I disagree that there was no connection; the crowds that showed up for Mitt Romney was evidence of a strong connection. That is absurd. I certainly have more respect for Romney than I do for John McCain.

I don't feel the need blame Romney today. He ran a clean and respectable campaign. He lost because, among other factors, we now have a large uneducated and uninformed citizenry that is willing to squander liberty for an 0bama mortgage and a phone. For example, there are people, like three of our neighbors, who bought houses they couldn't afford and then deliberately didn't pay their mortgages so that they could qualify for these special loans. They believe the economy is getting better. One of these neighbors does not believe that the Constitution is the law of the land. That's right, she does not believe it. She does not believe that we have a Constitutional Republic, either. And, as a Democrat, she never heard of Harry Reid, I kid you not.

Mitt Romney is a gracious and charitable man, I do know that much. 0bama is neither. Romney is a moral and decent man. 0bama is neither. Romney truly loves the American people and America. 0bama loves only himself.

cont'd.



No amount of analyzing "what happened" is going to turn this country around. We patriots must stay true to our convictions and principles, regardless of the consequences. Do right, not wrong. This life is not all there is; we do not live for ourselves. We are resourceful, and those of us who believe in hard work and individualism will figure out creative ways to survive and live our lives. We will take care of those we love. And God will give us the strength and wisdom to do it.

Romney, an old white rich guy, was the perfect target for the Obama crew's Chicago street fighter based class warfare demagogic campaign. The liberal media; and the Obama crew were out fraudulently defining Romney with hundreds of ads to the voters in the swing States last summer as Romney was relaxing on the lake at Wolfboro, NH. Since Romney never refuted those bogus Obama charges, he never had a chance in the swing States that were crucial to winning the election.

The wimpy Republicans should have learned from the G.W. Bush era that fraudulent liberal Democrat charges that are not rebutted will kill you, just like they killed Bush who ignored the media beating that the liberals were giving him for many years. All that did was begot the country Barack Obama.

Laura.. youre wrong. Just because Obama was able, with the aid of complicit media, to bamboozle the tiny bit larger section of the public that is so out of touch they couldn't even name the Secretary of State.. doesn't mean it was for any lack in our candidate. Some say he was too moderate, and just as many can say he wasn't moderate enough. I say as long as we let some of these social issues come out of the closet every 2 years to be a bellwether of a worth of a candidate, we will be stuck with a pubic that is always more conderned with the winner of Dancing with the Stars than how we pay for health care and keeping the bad guys from killing us.

Its time to hold our elected officials to their words. And that includes Obama. He likes to talk alot and promise alot, now lets hear how he is gonna do it. Quit blaming Romney. He was the adult in the room and wanted to try to fix our country.

#23, you're right. But it's all going to be moot when the Iranians show up in our major cities with their suitcase nukes. Don't think it isn't coming either.
That stupid Biden was so smug about them not having a delivery system. Idiot. They have millions of delivery systems.
I had a wonderful teacher back in prehistory. He taught us to think. His favorite phrase was, "I don't want to know how you feel, I want to know what you think." Invaluable. Unfortunately, by the 80's the touchy-feelie sob sisters had taken over and now everyone's a sensitive wreck.
But hey, now everyone knows exactly how everyone else FEELS. Bleeeechhhh...

Plain and simple. He worked his butt off as did his family, Paul Ryan's family and staff. I am proud of their efforts. I am not proud of my fellow voters (won't say Americans, because I don't believe they all are)

This voter felt a connection; he's decent, honorable and compassionate. And he got the shaft from shallow cultural cyphers who wouldn't understand such traits.

Let's face it; America is no longer filled with decent, honorable, informed voters. The Greatest Generation has pretty much died out and we're left with uneducated America-haters who really believe conservatives want to kill Granny and who are more impressed with celebrity and diversity than with competence and brains.

Those who live long enough to see the next election had damn well figure out how to fix this, if it's fixable. I'm not sure it is any more.

No Laura my family had a connection with Romney, but you see we like to work to provide for our family, Romney wanted people to work, Obama and his voters want things given to them. That is what is happening in America, to many do NOT want to work, they want the working people to share their earnings with them.
Romney/Ryan are class acts and good men, and would have been so good for this country.
Sad day for this country.

ta! da! The Republicans - Newt, Rick et al who forgot (or worse), disregarded, the 11th commandment.

Then the Dem's defined him (with little opposition).

Took most of us until very late to see what a fine, highly qualified man he is (even if if not a raging conservative). Too late the bring out ENOUGH republicans. Our Bad.

Romney seems to connect well with the electorate. I believe the demonrats even thought he was going to win.

If the numbers above are correct then the reason he didn't win is because some conservatives didn't vote for him. That is simply despicable. You handed the country to the American NAZI party because you couldn't vote for a Mormon?

#31 I hope the Iranians or North Koreans DO show up with suitcase bombs in major cities.

Killing 20 or 30 million home grown socialist is about the only way the US can be saved. It would be better if Americans didn't have to do it themselves.

Two bombs each in NYC and LA. One in SF one in Boston, one in Baltimore, Two in Houston one in Madison, Two in Chicago. Detroit can be spared as it is dying anyway, one more in Miami and Tampa.

Maybe the Islamist can purge some professors from major universities as well. I work in academia I could provide partial list of which ones to start with

All of this is nonsense. We have a two party system. If your party's candidate is Jo-Jo, the dogfaced boy, you go to the polls and vote for him, because,if you don't, the other party wins.

I should not have to share this planet with people too simple-minded to figure that out.

She's very wrong. The enthusiasm advantage was definitely more on the R & R team as evident by the turnouts at events & they definitely got the white vote and won the debates on issues. Mitt Romney & Paul Ryan connected. Period. If this had been 1980, Mitt would have won.

The problem is that the demographics of America has changed. The facts that voters in Washington are for legalizing marijuana's recreational use and voters in Massachusetts think doctor-assisted suicides are just peachy, tell me that too many 2012 American voters have lost their moral conscience. Too many people are sucking from the public teat now and Obama appealed to their fears and envy. Unfortunately, de Torqueville was prescient - America would be destroyed when her citizens found out they could vote free stuff for themselves. Obama campaigned not on issues or his dismal record but by pandering to a bunch of special interest groups. In the end, the vote in 2012 wasn't about connecting with voters but about which candidate could pay a higher price for the average voter's ballot when he found out he could sell. And, this is tragic, because it marks the end of people coming together as Americans.

I hope deTorqueville is wrong, that the average American voter will change. But if that happens, it will happen with a lot more pain than if R & R had won. I see America 2012 as a redux of Europe in 1930's where appeasers only managed to postpone the inevitable war only to have to pay a heavy price in blood and treasure later for stick their collective heads in the ground.

I don't feel a connection with Laura Ingraham. That is why I don't watch her when she subs for BOR, no matter how desperate I am for something to watch. Her radio show was cancelled here, too. And it looks like 59 million people did feel a connection of some sort with Romney because that's how many votes he got.

Hunker down and take care of your own. Ingraham is a self promoting huckster who favored Christie.

The days of lecturing others on how they should live their lives are long gone.

That is aimed at the GOP? What is so amusing about this kind of tripe is that anyone paying attention for the last, oh, 80 or 90 years recognizes that it is the Democrats who use the power of government to impose on and dictate to people’s lives. Space allows but one illustration: Sending women “back to the 50s”. I’m aware of no piece of legislation the GOP has ever introduced on this topic. Rather, Democrats have actually passed legislation forcing taxpayers and religious institutions to fund abortion on demand and contraception. The GOP opposes this kind of government coercion, and is therefore branded as “anti-women” and accused of using the government to control women’s bodies – when the most rudimentary examination reveals the exact opposite is true. If one can’t see the perversity in that, one is too far gone to deal with rationally.

The reality is that conservative policies DID NOT create the current social or economic condition of the country. However, if the country were ever to have a chance to recover – which it won’t at this point – conservative policies are the only way to do it. As one can see from the comments here, this is a lost cause.

I'm pleasantly surprised at the reactions of the above posters regarding the negative attitude of Laura Ingraham, because I agree. There were times when I had to turn her off the radio when she went on her constant rants of GWBush. She was merciless. But what does that get her? She did the same thing regarding Romney. No one pleases her and her criticisms are ruthless. I can't take her anymore.

I am up to here with the pontificating pundits. Laura Ingraham has no idea whether we connect with Mitt Romney or not, nor does she have any idea how many probably don't "connect" with Obit except to put their hands out for a giveaway.

Sweeping statements like this show limited intelligence in my book and/or an inflated sense of self.

I lost interest in strident Laura Ingraham years ago.

mitt was my first choice in 2008 and he was my first choice in 2012. i connected with him..... he symbolized everything decent and innovative about the american spirit.
i loved the fact he was married to the same woman for 42 yrs, he had a wonderful family who loved him. i'm not even going to rehash his success in everything he set his mind to do. he was sabotaged by a media who were jonesing for another term for their messiah. lord knows (and thank goodness) i feel no connection to the punk in the WH..i would have to re-examine my psyche if i did.

#20...i totally agree with you. i was a poll watcher for mitt all day yesterday. i saw absentee ballots, provisional ballots and people making "mistakes" on their ballots and voting again. supposedly, their "incorrect" ballot was thrown away and ex'ed but who knows if they weren't put through the scanner again.
i gave my time and some money for this ticket because i believed so much in mitt romney...i don't regret a second. i just cry for what america has become. i'm not speaking to my mother.
she seems to think it's OK to give away 55% of the estate my father left for his family.

I'm surprised that know-it-all Ingraham hasn't run for office and won, so she could tell all of us how it's done. Can't stand to look at her anymore, and I have two of her books. Get lost, Big Mouth.

She's sort of right. There WAS a 2.5 million conservative disconnect. Some may have been "bigots", but more, I believe, were conservative purists who voted for McCain last time & are bitterly disappointed with the GOP for giving us moderate candidates. And 2.5 million stayed home.

Good news is, 10 million stayed home from Obama's base. 10 million! If only it had been 13 million. If only the purists would have voted anyway, no matter the disconnect. I sure hope I'm wrong about our dollar collapsing this term. I really do hope I'm wrong. But I don't think I am.

IMHO, voters no longer feel much of a "connection" with Laura Ingram or the rest of the talking heads who spent a year denigrating Mitt Romney. And now, despite their daily rantings, they have the unmitigated gall to accuse Mitt Romney of running a "bad" Election! Sounds like she believes voters DO "feel a connection" with obama! That tells me all I need to know about Ms. Ingraham who has gotten very full of herself, much like a lot of "gopers" who have set themselves far above the supporters of Mitt Romney because they are all soo much more intelligent (and let's not forget "conservative) than we peons are. demonrats stick together and will defend the lowest of the low, if that person is a fellow believer, unlike a lot of weak-kneed-so-called-republicans. BTW, I agree with #8.

Obama administration’s ‘Culture of
intimidation’ seen in Nevada ranch standoff
Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:09:44 PM     Post Reply
Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced
to Deport a Huge Number of Americans´
Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones    Original Article

Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Oversight member on Lois Lerner
coordination with DOJ: ‘Now I see

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

Elizabeth Warren whines about coverage

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

So I´m outside yesterday leaving work, and a woman stops me to say how much she loves me. I get this all the time. We chat a bit and she goes on to tell me how much she appreciates my covering what the other guys won´t. Then she said something that really stuck with me. "Neil, thank god you´re not cool." I told her, "is it that obvious?" She laughed. I laughed. But she got me thinking. It happens sometimes. I´m not cool. But I´m ok with that. Good thing, because I never was cool. But just admitting that to the mainstream media is very un-cool. Because the mainstream media

Why is US Senator Harry

Fox News, by Wayne Allyn Root    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 9:37:12 PM     Post Reply
I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

The Terrifying Implications of

Thank God for Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. His investigation of what turned out to be the IRS abuse scandal may well have saved the Constitution and the nation. For his fair and impartial investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of Americans who dissent from President Obama’s agenda, Democrats have called for an investigation of him. George should not be investigated, but perhaps the Democrats who want him investigated — Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) — should be. Their call for an investigation of the investigator might constitute interference with the ongoing investigation

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
