There was a time in US history (quite a long time in fact) when only white land owning men could vote. If this were still the case, how would our elections differ compared with men, women, and people of all races now allowed to vote? Above is a map of the election results from the 2012 presidential election (Obama-Romney). If only white men could vote, Romney would have won by an electoral college margin of 501-37.
