Obama should be worried, but so should America … be very, very scared.
Beware of a President and a political party that this in complete free-fall in the polls which means they will do every partisan thing possible and ram every liberal piece of agenda through as fast as possible knowing that they soon will be soon rode out of town on a rail.
According to a recent Gallup poll, Barack Obama’s approval ratings have dropped 22 points among White voters from 61% in February ‘09 to 39% presently. OUCH, that’s is going to leave a mark. I am sure the cries of racism will start up once again. However, the fact remains, all are fleeing the SS Obama.
At this rate by the time 2010 midterms are here, major winds of change could be taking place and in 2012 if Obama does not rebound, he could be facing a Democrat Primary challenge.
During the 2008 Presidential election, Barack Obama garnered a considerable number of the “White” vote; however, The One has all but squandered any chance of every seeing those types of numbers in future elections for himself and his party. Just yesterday, it was reported that Republicans had a 7 point lead in the Generic Congressional Ballot over Democrats and an amazing 44% to 22% among unaffiliated likely voters.
However, the troubles for Obama’s poll numbers go far beyond just “white” voters. The Obamamessiah has seen pretty much every major demographic go negative, many in a big way. The only one Obama had a gain in was blacks, +1.
Obama has lost polling numbers with the following demographics from Feb. 1, 2009:
- All Adults -17
- Whites -22
- Non-Whites -7
- Hispanics -5
- Males -15
- Females -19
Hell, Obama has even lost ground with Democrats. However, the biggest concern should be the a -18% loss of Independents. I guess they will also be calling “white” Democrats racist as well?
In fact, it appears as though Obama’s relatively small loss in support among Democrats has come exclusively from white Democrats. In late January/early February, Obama averaged 87% approval among white Democrats and 90% approval among nonwhite Democrats. Now, his approval rating among white Democrats is 76%, down 11 points, but is essentially the same (if not a little higher) at 92% among nonwhite Democrats.
- Democrats -6
- Republicans -24
- Independents -18
Obama has even lost ground with liberals at -5 and moderates have abandoned the SS Obama by -18%.
There is a reason why Obama’s Gallup poll numbers have dipped below 50%. This President has basically found a way to upset every major voting demographic that once supported him. Obama’s liberal partisan and liberal agenda has caused Independents to run from him as fast as they can. Obamacare is unpopular, yet he pushes the agenda. Cap & trade and global warming policies that is bad for the US economy is unpopular, yet he rams it down Americans throats.
Two great Exit questions from Hot Air: Why are white Democrats racist? And which deep red state now has Obama’s approval rating at a feeble 51/42? Go to Hot Air and see who, it will certainly surprise you.
Ha, ha, ha … With such terrible post-racial polling numbers, The Gateway Pundit says, it might be time for another Obama “Beer” Summit.
