(CNSNews.com) – Fresh off his reelection, President Barack Obama is asking his supporters to complete a survey that asks the people being polled to check off which “constituency groups” they identify with – there are 22 groups listed but not one for “whites” or “men.”

The post-election survey, distributed through www.barackobama.com to “take this organization forward,” includes the question, “Which constituency groups do you identify yourself with? Select all that apply.” It then lists 22 groups.

But whites and men are not on the list – women are, as are African Americans, Arab-Americans, Latinos and LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender).

Other “constituency groups” include “Educators,” “Environmentalists,” “Labor,” “Students,” “People with disabilities,” and “Youth.”

Also as an option: “People of faith,” “Small business owners,” “Seniors,” “Veterans/military families,” and “Young Professionals.”

The survey also requires Obama supporters to identify their gender as either “male,” “female,” or “other/no answer.”

“Your hard work and passion defined this campaign and re-elected President Obama,” the survey reads.  “Now, we're counting on you to help take this organization forward as we continue our work beyond 2012.”

The campaign states that the questionnaire includes “a few questions about you, your work with the campaign, and how you'd like to stay involved in the future.”

President Obama tweeted out the survey on Monday, saying, “This movement has always belonged to you. Take a few minutes to help shape its future.”

Repeated attempts to contact the Obama campaign for comment by CNSNews.com were not successful before this story was posted.
