President Obama Sinks to All-Time Polling Lows With Whites, Blacks and Hispanics

My what a difference an Obama first term makes …

Obama is in serious polling trouble, The One is even having polling issues with Blacks and Hispanics. President Obama is at all-time lows in job approval lows with Whites, Blacks and Hispanics. Yikes, Blacks and Hispanics again souring on Obama, would they be considered racists too? According to the most recent Gallup poll, Obama only garners 33% of Whites, 48% of Hispanics and 84% of Blacks. The 2012 Presidential reelection just got more difficult for President Zero.

President Barack Obama earned the lowest monthly job approval rating of his presidency to date in August, with 41% of U.S. adults approving of his overall job performance, down from 44% in July. He also received term-low monthly job approval ratings from both Hispanics (48%) and whites (33%) and tied his lowest rating from blacks (84%).

Blacks have remained solidly approving of Obama throughout his presidency; however, 2011 is the first year this group’s monthly job approval has routinely registered below 90%, indicating a decline in blacks’ support, albeit a fairly minor one.

The president’s current standing with Hispanics reflects a rather steep decline since January, when 60% approved of him. This follows Hispanics’ less-pronounced drops in their support in each of the first two years of his presidency. As a result, the gap between blacks and whites in Obama’s job approval has been widening while the gap between Hispanics’ and whites’ approval has been narrowing.

How bad is it for Obama when he can only get 84% of Blacks and a paltry 48% of the Hispanic vote? In the  2008 Presidential election, Barack Obama got 95% of the Black vote, 67% of the Latino vote and 43% of the White vote.  Does anyone wonder why the President has had a complete poll collapse and would be hard pressed to get a second term. Obama is down 11% with Blacks and 19% with Hispanics. Just curious, does that make them racist for opposing Obama? The Democrats and Obama may not have to worry about the Tea Party, they may find their biggest problem is getting Blacks and Hispanics out to vote and if they do vote, actually cast a ballot for Obama.  Presently in the Gallup poll, Obama has a 42% approval and 50% disapproval rating.

With Barack Obama sinking in the polls with Hispanics as compared to the 2008 vote, imagine how Hispanics would vote if the GOP put US Senator Marco Rubio or another candidate attractive to the Latino vote on the ticket as VP?
