Tar Heel Trouble … President Barack Obama Losing Support Among Black Voters in North Carolina


Romney receives 20% of Black vote!!!

In 2008 Presidential election Barack Obama received 95% of the black vote in North Carolina. However, that was then, this is now.  This is no Fox News poll or Rasmussen as the Left would be so quick to come out with. Its a PPP poll … yikes! According to a recent Left leaning PPP poll, Mitt Romney garnered 20% of the black vote, while Obama only received 76%. That’s it, 76%? Is that really possible? Did Obama’s endorsement of gay marriage and upsetting pastors of black churches following the North Carolina primaries and the passage a constitutional ban on such unions really have had that much of an effect? In PPP’s May poll, Obama received 87% of the African-American vote to Romney’s 11%. .

Barack Obama reading the latest PPP poll

President Barack Obama is rapidly losing support among African-American voters in North Carolina, a new poll out today from the Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling shows.

The poll finds that Mitt Romney would get 20 percent of the African-American vote if the election were held today, compared with 76 percent for Obama. Overall, Romney has a 48 percent to 46 percent lead on Obama in the crucial swing state.

The Obama polling slide has been a trend in North Carolina. Mitt Romney has surged into the lead in the ‘Tar Heal’ state including leading in the all important independent vote. One has to wonder if Obama will struggle in other Southern states with blacks? Could African-Americans be tired of Obama’s promises of jobs and no action? Under Obama blacks have had the highest unemployment rate in 27 years. If Obama only gets 76% of the black vote in key swing states, he is finished.

One thing is certain … There will be no great enthusiasm for Obama in 2012. The record number of voters to the polls for Obama will be a thing of the past.

      If Romney can corner the votes for Hispanics and Women, he is a shoe-in.

      While I believe he will have trouble with Hispanic Voters, my hope is that he will win the election with voters from across America who have buyers remorse from 4 years ago.

      It’s hard to believe at this point that Romney has 20% of Black Voters converted. If that statistic is anywhere close to being accurate, that says something right there about who should be sitting in the Oval Office by this time next year.

      Time will tell, and Romney’s VP pick is crucial.
