Obama approval cliff dives among poor Hispanics and Non-Whites
Legal Insurrection ^ | December 5, 2013 | Professor William A. Jacobson

Posted on 12/06/2013 12:23:49 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Yesterday we noted the precipitous drop in support for Obama among one of his stool legs, Harvard Survey: Obama and Obamacare push Millennials support off cliff

It gets worse.

There is a certain poetic justice in the latest Gallup poll of presidential support. Obama’s support has dropped the most among poor Hispanics and Non-Whites versus one year ago.

President Barack Obama’s job approval rating averaged 41% in November, down 12 percentage points from 53% last December, his high-water mark since his first year in office. Hispanics’ approval has dropped 23 points over the last 12 months, the most among major subgroups, and nearly twice the national average. His approval rating also showed above-average declines among low-income Americans, nonwhites, moderates, and moderates who identify with or lean toward the Democratic Party.

There is, however, one sub-group whose, er, support has only declined by 2%

Who exactly are the 5% of Conservative Republicans still supporting Obama?

Wow! And this is before the real pitfalls of Obamacare and the Iran capitulation have been revealed!

Obama is sinking big time. He’ll just hunker down and double his efforts to hurt the country in any and all ways he can..

Dagnabit why couldn’t they have rolled out Obamacare a month or two just before the last election ?

That 5% must be “severely conservative” Republicans such as Romney and Christie.

“Ha! Wait until a few of them get smacked in the face with the “health care”.”

It won’t be long since the Spanish version of zerocare has not been coded or started.

Precisely. And this, frankly, is the most dangerous of times.

This (or close to this) time is when he would initiate a false-flag and invoke the Emergency Powers Act, seizing all control and dismissing the Congress and the Senate.

If -- by the slightest thin reed of possibility -- we get through Obama without him seizing control, we NEED to rein in the Emergency Powers Act and only allow it for genuine emergency

For example Nuclear War (full-on, not one or even a few bombs), EMP that collapses American infrastructure, a pandemic of national coverage, or an invasive conventional war.

No other reasons can be allowed, and even then, a vote of Congress and the Senate must be taken (if possible).

“Who exactly are the 5% of Conservative Republicans still supporting Obama?”

I have a lesbian relative who looks, acts and talks like the classic liberal. But she’s from a conservative family and registered Republican. She has redefined the entire universe so that she’s conservative. I don’t believe she has ever voted Republican because she votes for “the candidate, not the party.”

So, who are those 2%? They’re people who have twisted their world view like an Escher print or a Dali painting.

Then, there’s another possibility. My father was a contrary responder. If you said something was white he’d snap at you that you were wrong and it was black. You could hold a color wheel to it and prove it was white but he’d still say you were wrong. If somebody like that is registered Republican you’ll get the opposite of the response you expect.

This is a “so what?” poll. I say that because every one of these demographics would happily vote again for Obama if he were allowed to run for a third term. Since he won’t be, these demographics will happily vote for the leftist Dim who does get the nomination.

It’s not a true collapse until he’s hunkering in a bunker ordering around divisions that don’t exist.

Precisely. His numbers are down, along with GOP numbers, because all are perceived as not being left-wing enough. If GOP numbers were up, that would be a different story.

He doesn’t really care. It’s time to vacation, golf, do drugs and drink excessively on the finest beverages our tax dollars can buy.

You’re right on all counts.

Very dangerous times and getting more so each day.

The fall of this clown is going to be more spectacular than the rise.


I agree. I want to see him totally humiliated and destroyed in every way.

His arrogance is allowing his true colors to shine through more each day and it doesn’t bode well for him.

Yes, it’s survival mode time for us.
