Blue Collar Democrats Abandoning Barack Obama … Half Say They Do Not Want Him as Party Nominee in 2012
According to a recent CNN poll, President Barack Obama continues to be underwater and has sunk even farther as 44% of Americans state they approve of the job the President’s doing in the White House, while 54% say they disapprove. However, it gets worse and appears Obama’s class warfare rhetoric is failing. Obama need not worry about Republicans, he needs to worry about his own house. Barack Obama is losing the Blue collar Democrats. With a continues failing economy and Obama proving “ZERO” leadership as President or any policies to put the people back to work, Obama is pretty much losing all voting demographics.
“The biggest change comes among white Democrats with no college education, a group typically considered the core of the party’s blue-collar constituency,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. “Half of all white Democrats with no college education say they don’t want President Obama heading their party’s ticket next year.”
Then-Sen. Obama’s appeal to blue collar whites was limited in the 2008 cycle. In the Democratic primaries they tended to back his main rival, then-Sen. Hillary Clinton. And in the general election they went for the Sen. John McCain, the GOP presidential nominee, by 18 points, according to CNN exit polls.

The following are some key aspects of this poll that will be damning to Barack Obama. The poll also shows that Obama’s signature piece of legislation, Obamacare, is opposed by 56%, while only garnering 38% approval. Also, a meager 38% of Independents approve of Obama’s handling of his job as President, while a whopping 57% disapprove. This a a greater percentage of disapproval that the poll in general. Having lost the Independent vote … Obama is toast in 2012.
Does this make Independents and blue collar Democrats racists?
