Just how many individuals who voted for Obama in 2008 will be taking the 2010 election off or have changed their mind and will vote for the GOP?
Barack Obama, it’s a different kind of hope & change, one that a majority of Americans actually want, not a promised one with a LEFT leaning agenda. According to all accounts, the 2008 voting coalition that propelled Barack Obama into the White House has crumbled.
President Barack Obama’s winning coalition from 2008 has crumbled and his core backers are dispirited. It’s now Republicans who stand to benefit from an electorate that’s again craving change.
Nearly two years after putting Obama in the White House, one-quarter of those who voted for the Democrat are defecting to the GOP or considering voting against the party in power this fall. Just half of them say they definitely will show up Nov. 2, according to an Associated Press-Knowledge Networks poll released two weeks before Obama’s first midterm elections.
Hope & Change for Obama has turned into “doubt” and “disillusion”for The Obamamessiah. What propelled Obama in the 2008 election? Contrary to those that play the race card, it was white independent voters. Those folks have all but left Obama and the Democrats in 2010. Even the voters of 2008 are abaondoning ship and fleeing the SS Obama.
In a reversal from 2008, the survey found that Obama backers who expected change in Washington — 63 percent — now think nothing ever will happen. Just 36 percent still think Obama can do it, while a majority of McCain supporters now say things can change if the right person is elected.
Is it supposed to come as a sudden shock that one time Obama supporters are running away from The One as fast as they can in 2010? Really? Is this a sudden realization from the MSM? As stated at Weasel Zippers, the epiphany begins. It is not just Obama’s Administration that is leaving in droves, it is his supporters as well.
