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.

Exactly! I didn’t support him and still don’t support ZERO because he is a socialist with a communist agenda (interchangable words) not because of his race.
We are done with the race card. It’s over. Finished. This is not Zimbabwe and it’s not South Africa.
And by the way, we outnumber them. If they don’t want to be fellow American citizens but rulers, it will not happen.
Who Is Obama ?
Who payed for His Education?
My Point Being ,What is Know of Him is UnSavory and the Fundementals are Kept From Us,
WHO Is Obama?
What is He Hideing and Why is The Media Silent?
actually about 75% that admit it, its probably lower
This same bunch of loons would buy a sea shore lot in Montana.
Chrissie Matthews did not look too happy when he got this news from an NBC pollster.
(At one point, Chrissie slipped and said “death squads” instead of “death panels”!)
“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?”
I doubt it. I have several friends in this category and they can be astonishingly good at not seeing reality. Cause and effect? Not their area of expertise.
Were it not for the whitewash job by the MSM, we'd not have this problem.
Bloody hell....I’m SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO sick of this. The guy in the WH....who I DIDN’T vote for....who may have a different ‘skin tone’ as I (sooo the hell what)....is RUINING MY COUNTRY! His ‘color’ has NOTHING to do with this!!!! His POLICIES and BELIEFS DO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There has always been a large number of American whites who feel guilty about their success and sympathize with the downtrodden. Nixon, Ford, McPain, etc, tried to court them unsuccessfully.
Rangel should be out of a job looking for a defense attorney so rangle can kiss my lilly white A$$$
And, he added, in a state that has been hit hard by economic troubles, voters are willing to give Obama credit for his economic stimulus package and for bailing out the auto industry.
This guy must do stand up comedy
“The voters losing faith in the president are the ones he had worked hardest to attract.”
WHAT? He threw ‘Whitey’ under the bus the very minute that he could...starting with his white Grandma.
The reason we are hearing that whites are racists is because we have fallen for the baloney that only whites can be racists. Just look at the people 0bama has gathered around him over the years...Wright, Michele Robinson, Anthony “Van” Jones, etc., etc., etc. In short, he has immersed himself in a culture of racism.
I don’t object to the color of his skin. I object to the color of his policies!
We need to make a bumper sticker!
OJ is a murderer.
Michael was a pedophile.
Marion is a crack head.
I don’t know what is so difficult for them to understand. Maybe it’s due to brain atrophy from non-use.
What would you expect from a Crypto-Marxist and someone who has a nebulous background and upbringing, sat in a Black Nationalist church for 20 years, friends with William Ayers and other fellow travelers, to do after all these years; uphold the very Constitution which has allowed freedom for everyone, no this does not support the objective of absolute power.
As David Horowitz has pointed out, every radical is bigoted, opposed to America and must destroy/over-through the system and its foundations with the goal to obtain power and control without caring about the result; as long as they have the power! (ends justify means) To prove such, watch what is done to real people, not what is said.
Obamao is a fake black man sold by the elitist white media. He is, at most, 3/8th and perhaps as little as 1/8th black. He his half white and the remainder Arab.
