Jake Tapper Slams Obama for Radio DJ Interviews

Tapper cited President Obama's radio interviews with Miami's DJ Laz "Pimp with the Limp" (aired on September 11th), MTV's broadcast with Sway and an appearance on his own network's The View.

Obama received 60% of the young voters
Obama received 71 % of the Hispanic voters
Obama received 93% of African American voters

Romney received 59% of all white voters to Obama's 39%
