but my point goes unanswered—
why would 12 % of “republicans” approve of comrade obama?
should we call this 12% “republicans”?
66% of the 18-29 year old vote went for Obama, what a crowd, they have fewer conservatives than any other age group.
Sorry, I said something silly there, it doesn’t matter how many are in their age group, it is what percentage of them are lefties, and for the young people they are 66% lefty.
What a crowd huh?
1. First of all this is one of the remarkable results of political success of The United States Department of Education that was created by President Jimmy Carter on October 17.
For an average American it takes now about 10 years to clean his / her mind from the left coolaid, because almost all of them are intoxicated ...
2. See the difference between married / unmarried ...
I’ve seen better gallup from Mister Ed. This poll is obviously comin’ out Mister Ed’s back end. Thanks trekdown.
Some people prefer to call them RINO, but it does not matter. The really important question is ... can we help them to change their minds.
It seems to me that we have a reason to think so ...
“it doesnt matter how many are in their age group”
Uh, yeah, it does. Can’t get elected without the votes.
Uh, it depends on what you are describing, left wing little fag people that are almost all Obama leftists, or a group that isn’t.
If 99 percent voted for Obama, and they amounted to 10 percent of the total votes, they are for all intents and purposes irrelevant.
However, if 30 percent of the total voters vote 50 percent in his favour, that means that they amounted to 15 percent.
So the boomers contributed more to his election then the young folks.
Also the ‘stupid generation’, has the largest drop away from Obama, and are just a couple points away from crossing over.
That will leave just the black folks.
Do you want to know about people? Generational trends? Voting and strategies?, The future? Politics?
How would you analyze the female vote, purely on their percentage of the population? Are you expert at this? Is this your expert contribution?
The other factor, is *where* the vote takes place, which is far more important than anything else.
Age categories are mostly meaningless because the US doesn’t vote that way. Only about 10 percent of any seats are in play in any given election season, and 10 percent of the electoral college will swing one way or the other.
What does Barry O bring to the table? Look at the outliers from the previous elections.
Colorado: Weld, Douglas, El Paso, Arapahoe, Adams
Nevada: Washoe, Clark
Indiana: Delaware, Madison, Hamilton, and Elkhart.
North Carolina: Mecklemburg, Cumberland
Virginia: Chesterfield, Chesapeake, Henrico, Loudon and Prince William.
Ohio: Hamilton, Franklin, Lucas.
Obama’s entire victory revolved around less than 25 counties.
That's because the poll respondents were not selected out for likely voters, or even registered voters, or even American citizens, but included any adult who could answer a telephone. This methodology is likely to inflate Obama's approval rating beyond the real number.
Osceola - 47.2 white, 34.4 hispanic, 10 black
Hamilton - 72.9 white, 23.43 black
Franklin - 75.4 white, 17.89 black
Lucas - 77.5 white, 16.98 black
Mecklenburg - 64 white, 27.9 black
Cumberland - 51 white, 36.7 black
Chesterfield - 65 white, 32 black
Chesapeake - 62 white, 30 black
Henrico - 69 white, 25 black
Prince William - 60 white, 21 black, 20 Hispanic
Loudon - 83 white, 7 black,
Clark - 60 white, 9 black, 22 hispanic
Washoe - 80 white
Delaware - 90 white
Madison - 90 white
Hamilton - 94 white
Elkhart - 86 white
Arapahoe - 79 white 11 percent hispanic
El Paso - 81 white 11 percent hispanic
Adams - 50 white 28 percent hispanic
Weld - 54 white 27 percent hispanic
Douglas - 92 white
I’d say Madison, Hamilton, Elkhard, El Paso, Arapahoe, Douglas, Delaware, Washoe, Loudon, Franklin, and Lucas counties, the major party switch was for boomer whites. So about half of Obama’s switch appeal came from boomer whites, and the rest from blacks and hispanics.
Note that as we age and (hopefully) mature, the approval goes down? Let’s bring back the 21 year old voting requirement .. or better yet, 35.
The young being leftists is new, it started in 1992, and the current young are hard left, voting 66% Obama.
The “stupid generation” loves Obama, 66% means that he owns that generation.
The left owns young America, and it will never return to the way it used to be before 1992 when youth were pretty anti-Democrat, you will soon enter a future controlled by your peers, when they gain control things won’t be pretty.
My ‘peers’ are the ones going to church getting married, staying married, having babies and working their hides off.
Some of us are having to help out with kids that aren’t ours to make sure that they have a future. No help from the supposed dads.
Then the rest of us are the ones signing up for the army and fighting overseas for a war we did not start that’s being going on since we came of age. But do you here us complaining? No. We aren’t going to lose. That’s the difference between us and you, in that we take pride in succeeding despite getting stabbed in the back by others.
We aren’t going to have a Vietnam, because we are going to win.
Of course you will win in war, you have boomers leading you and serving over you.
Almost nine and a half million boomers have served, or are serving in the military, war, they know, you are in good hands, you will not be fighting a war where you win every major battle and your leaders continually tie your hands and then cut off funding.
Your peers may not serve in large numbers which is to be expected given their politics, but your females will pick up the slack, and top leadership will make it work.
“you have boomers leading you and serving over you.”
Boomers that are backstabbing us every step of the way. Like starting a pissant war with Libya just because. You’re not going to see us bail out, like you guys did back in ‘75.
And of course our numbers are lower, because they had to draft your asses, at least those of you who didn’t flee to Canada.
