Skip to comments.Obama's declining support among whites
Posted on 09/05/2009 6:25:12 PM PDT by mathprof
After a summer of health care battles and sliding approval ratings for President Obama, the White House is facing a troubling new trend: The voters losing faith in the president are the ones he had worked hardest to attract.
New surveys show steep declines in Obama's approval ratings among whites--including Democrats and independents--who were crucial elements of the diverse coalition that helped elect the country's first black president.
Among white Democrats, Obama's job approval rating has dropped 11 points since his 100-days mark in April, according to surveys by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press. It has dropped by nine points among white independents and whites over 50, and by 12 points among white women--all voter groups that will be targeted by both parties for support in next year's mid-term elections.
"While Obama has a lock on African-Americans, his support among white voters seems to be almost in a free-fall," said veteran Republican pollster Neil Newhouse.

Idiots. This SOB sat is Wright’s “church” for years. What did you suppose he really thought of you?
More newsworthy is his plummetting support among African-Americans.
Its not my fault so many blacks are blind followers.
OJ didn’t do it
Michael Jackson didn’t do it
Da b**ch set marion Barry up
Kwamee didn’t do it
And on and on and on.
Playing the race card again.
You mean to tell me that women- the fairer sex who traditionally votes with their heart instead of their heads- are starting to get a reality check?
There may be hope for them yet. I’m hoping they feel scorned and betrayed by the racist usurper- they won’t come back to him if that’s the case.
Down to 99.7%? :)
Everything is ‘race’ to these people. Maybe, just maybe, folks are opposing his POLICIES as they realize he’s an extreme Marxist.
Funny how Barry’s becoming president was supposed herald a post-racial America and yet, the issue of color remains a prominent fixture.....at least among the liberal media.
David Horowitz was right when he spoke what he did to Glenn Beck Friday.
you’d think he’d want to keep old white grandmas alive, they’re his power base
Yeah, go ahead and add me to that list.
Also guilty. I go to sleep wondering it. I wake up wondering it. I go through every day wondering it.
Obama’s declining support among people who think OJ is a murderer.
(There. Fixed it.)
And the irony is: it was their racism that got them to vote for the guy in the first place! White guilt and racist Blacks gave us The Economic Idiot known as Obama. The scary thing is...he can do anything, destroy this country in any fashion he pleases and he will still retain support of the majority of the Black community solely b/c of the color of his skin (as if that really means anything). Who’s racist now?
Is that Rangel, the tax cheat, etc?
Oh, does that make me racist?
Yes, I’d say that was right, but I’m not sure it’s because he is black.
Oooooh. Make it so.
