Skip to comments.The black-white divide in Obama's popularity
Posted on 04/29/2009 9:30:23 AM PDT by Lou Budvis
On his 100th day in office, Barack Obama enjoys high job approval ratings, no matter what poll you consult. But if a new survey by the New York Times is accurate, the president and some of his policies are significantly less popular with white Americans than with black Americans, and his sky-high ratings among African-Americans make some of his positions appear a bit more popular overall than they actually are.

Let me know if you want on or off the ping list
...lest we forget that it’s all about race and not competence...
In sum, American blacks are bigots who stick by the guy because of the color of his skin.
I’m shocked, shocked I tell you!!!
Excuse me? If the man gets a 65% approval rating, including a 100% approval rating from 15% of the population, he still has a 65% approval rating.
Unless the Washington Examiner is implying that African-Americans don't count towards Americans overall.
He’s a divider, not a uniter.
I suspect that many African Americans don’t care about anything other than that Obama is black. It is a dangerous situation.
Class warfare is the new racism to Obummer and all his flunkies.
The muzzie/Marxist has set race relations back 30 years.
The color of racism in America today is BLACK... It’s everywhere and getting worse everyday.
So very true!!
I sailed on small boats, I’ve seen the bottom side of more waves than most submariners, LOL
Yo, you realize that that “100% rating” among blacks you yapped about is really a “80% rating”? Yet you take a fake for a fact and run with it. Yowsa, yo-yo! You are yanking our chains.
Plus that racial rating really is obviously based only on Obama’s orgins, yo-yo! Not on his performance of character, on his RACE. That’s why we will introduce that it is important ingredient to factor fully in polling punditry.
No, no, only whites can be racist! Everybody should be loving him, and it’s only the racist whites who don’t.
No, the situation is even more dangerous than that. They care about his race AND they expect him to use his power to deliver handouts (for example the mortgage bailout) funded by taxes they do not pay for the most part.
But then I still haven't forgotten the sky high high percentage of African Americans who strongly backed OJ Simpson after he'd murdered Nicole and another guy in cold blood.
The message is clear: Africans Americans will back the devil himself..so far as the devil is black. Nothing else counts as far as these people are concerned.
Unless the Washington Examiner is implying that African-Americans don't count towards Americans overall. “
He implied nothing of the sort in the article. You put it there all by yourself.
What makes black folks and other minorities think Obummer and his liberal flunkie zombie sheep are ACTUALLY HELPING THEM. They’re not! They’re just bringing the rest of us down to their already gutter level which is where we will all be living very soon. We’ll all be homeless and looking for stuff in garbage dumpsters and begging for handouts on the street.
Now, now, only a “racist” would think like that! (sarc)
"Unless the Washington Examiner is implying that African-Americans don't count towards Americans overall."He implied nothing of the sort in the article. You put it there all by yourself.
I'm just trying to understand what the phrase "appear a bit more popular overall than they actually are" means. Maybe you can explain it better?
If an issue is 50-50 among whites, and 90-10 among blacks, does the 90% black figure make the issue "appear a bit more popular overall" than it actually is?
No, I injected nothing.
And yes, I agree with your backing the devil statement. Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Kwame Kirpactrick, and Marion Berry among others, all prove you correct.
i wonder if we will ever get a 90% white voting gop one day, the same way we have 90% black voting dem
