President Barack Obama Slips in Polls with White, Black & Hispanic Voters


What a difference 2 – 1/2 years makes, a lack of leadership and a dithering approach to the Presidency.

President Barack Obama has been an unmitigated disaster as President. Even the LEFT will tell you that he has been a disappointment and he was waffled and flip-flopped on many of his campaign promises of 2008. Now we are presented with polling data where Obama not only is struggling with White voters, he is also doing the same with Black voters. In the 2008 election, Barack Obama ran well only among two groups of whites,  young people and white women with at least a four year college education. However, in 2012 that might be a different story …

According to a recent Pew Poll shows that the 2010 GOP landslide just might be a harbinger of things to come for Obama in 2012. Barack Obama is only polling at 37%, down from his 43% in the 2008 election.

Figures provided to National Journal by Pew from the new survey suggests that Obama has recaptured ground Democrats lost with well-educated white women in 2010-but that he is still struggling with every other segment of the white electorate, including younger voters.

On the other, polls consistently suggest he may struggle to match the modest 43 percent support among whites that he drew in 2008, according to the Edison Research exit poll. In the 2010 mid-term election, according to the Edison exit poll, just 37 percent of whites backed Democrats in House races, while 60 percent supported Republicans-the highest share of the white vote Republicans have won in a House election in the history of modern polling. Obama’s approval rating among all whites in the Pew survey stands at a similar 38 percent.

Think Obama is just having an issue with white voters, think again. The One is also struggling with black voters, if that can be believed. Thus the reason why after all his time in the White House, Obama made his way up to Harlem to visit Al Sharpton this week. Obama could go golfing and on vacations, but not visit his most faithful members of his base. According to a recent Gallup poll, Obama has lost ground with black voters.

Blacks continue to back him by a wide margin, with 85 percent of respondents saying they approved of him in the latest Gallup poll.

But that number dropped a hefty 5 percentage points from last month, marking the lowest rating among that core constituency that he’s had since taking office.

He also dropped 5 points among Hispanics, sliding from 59 percent to 54, according to the poll. That number ties his July and August 2010 lows.

You do not get a second time to make a first impression and the gig is up with Barack Obama in 2012. He cannot run as an outsider or a candidate of “Hope & Change”, try as he might.

      46% of Republicans believe interracial marriage should be illegal (4/7/11 PPP).

      I’m pretty sure you racists aren’t going to get much of the minority vote in 2012.

      I do not understand how any well educated person could vote or even think about voting for Mr. Zero.

      Has anyone checked the data for the “well educated white women”?

      WOW! YoYo, you really went all out on this one…LOL

      Typical of you to call people racist. Everything with you is about race. Well guess what bozo? The majority of the minority votes for Obama were exactly that, racist, they voted for an empty suit because he was black. They did not care to learn anything about the candidate they were voting for all they saw was skin color. How’s that for racist?

      You are a racist who continually accuse others of being a racist because you have nothing left to present as fact.

      Obama is done and you and all those like you will once again play the race card regardless of the truth.

      I have come to realize that liberals are the most mean-spirited, clueless and hypocritical bunch of people I’ve ever met.

      If voters had done their homework before the 2008 elections, we would not have this empty suit in the White House wrecking havoc on the United States of America.

      Stupid people are destroying this country. Lazy and stupid people both legal and illegal who need the government telling them how to live and what to do. Ignorant people who think the government will help them and they continue to mooch off the taxpayers of this Country.

      No YoYo my post is not racist. It is the truth and you need to stop defending Obama it makes you look like a darn fool.

      Gee, slipping in the Polls for Obama is no big deal is it, really? According to his Former WH Speaker, Robert Gibbs, “the polls don’t mean anything”.

      Got one word for you by the Presidency that was bought and campaign managed by the brilliant David Plouffe.

      #1- Yoyo—Hey, RACE BAITER—WASSUP?

      Stick a sock in it. You are an ignorant Libtard. There is absolutely NOTHING WRONG WITH INTERRACIAL MARRIAGE, IMOO.

      But did you also know that 99.997% of Democrats like you are so full of the BS the MSM feeds you, that you actually believe half the crap you read is FACTUAL?

      Where the eff do you get your percentage numbers and facts? Come on, Libtard—-cut and paste- I want to see proof.

      Weren’t you the hypocrite on here saying before that polls don’t mean anything?

      Put your Libtard crack pipe down and get a clue, you are an embarrassment to every Democrat out there.
