Down to 99.7%? :)

Percentage of black voters voting for Obama. For their loyalty some of them get bus rides to town hall meetings as long as they hold up signs, vigorously oppose anyone opposing Obama and/or the healthcare plan.

Skin color (white bashing) is a predominant theme for black bigots. So much for the concept of equality - these people NEVER envision that almost half of all whites voting, voted for Obama. It appears from the tirades of Van Jones, oppression of white people is part of the hope and change aspiration.

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.

And for whom does the "elitist white media" work? You're saying, if I understand you correctly, that Obama is being used by whites to fool blacks (i.e. to fool them into voting for him, for example...).

These unknowns which are required for most anything and everything we do are being secreted for a reason - our downfall as a Republic.

“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.

Seems to be? What, you can’t see? You can’t establish the facts for yourself and not qualify your every quibbling statement?

"Some Americans have not gotten over the fact that Obama is president of the United States. They go to sleep wondering, `How did this happen?' " Rangel said, according to the New York Post.

Guilty.

Me too, bit not for the reasons ol' Charlie is suggesting. I'm wondering how this Communist/Bolshevik got elected. That Barry happens to be a mulatto/arab is irrelevant.

Obama's declining support among whites

Obama is half-white.

From another perspective, he's even failed at being black!

Heck, my moreninho kids are darker than he is after a single sunny day.

I'm sick of this race-baiting commie crap.

It's just another FAIL as a weapon to use against conservatives, who are far more interested in "content of character" than "color".

It's the "commie factor" that hurts Obama, not color.

Exactly. Love the term “moreninho”! Obama will make it nearly impossible for another mulato to become president. He is not black. I don’t know why they keep saying he is.

I have had enough of the poor. I have been listening to the Great Society pap for my entire life and the poor are still poor.

So, at this point I'm openly saying "screw them"...I hate the poor. I have had enough of their sh!t and I am no longer willing to subsidize them any longer, and am not going to be browbeaten into being nice, or just shutting up. End food stamps, welfare, WIC and on and on. Since 70% of welfare is paid to rural whites I can comfortably defend my position and prove that such a suggestion is in fact not racist.

Obama was black when he won the office and he’s still black now. Just a slight bit of logical thinking would indicate that it is therefore not racism but performance that has caused a loss of confidence in Obama. The people using the race card are the racists as they seem to see everything in life in terms of race and nothing else.

Black people are just plain people to me. They need to be held accountable for their actions just like everybody else.

Agree 100%...and, until they and every other "minority" are held to the same standards as whites, racism will ALWAYS exist!

Obama is not the first black to be president. His pedigree is 1/2 white, and 1/2 Arabian.He is not Afro American.

No we still have not yet had our first black president. And when we do , he will be a lot better than this pretend president ever will be.

"While Obama has a lock on African-Americans, ..."

That's the sad part about the article and quotes... The MLK dream of a society that doesn't look at the color of one's skin, but at their character is apparently far away...
The only folks that Obama should have a 'lock on' are American-hating communists. Most Americans, of any skin melanin content, don't fall into this category...
Most of those who are blindly loyal to Obama are stuck in the sin of idolatry (e.g., supporting someone based on tribe, skin-color, or other external characteristics). This is a warning to all of us -- it is very easy for anyone to get caught into sin of setting up idols before God (e.g., worship of Country, race, class, wealth, materialism, etc...).
It was a sound warning that John gave us at the close of his First Epistle:

1 John 5:21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

Women typically live longer than men, and they take care of the sick more often. Lack of medical care, lack of money, lack of everything from the talk of rationing hits them harder. Especially white women who work AND do the care-giving. ObamaCare Jokes Obama Jokes

This has NOTHING to do with racism. Obamessiah has told us he wants to totally "change" the system. He has surrounded himself with avowed communists, anti-Americans, anti-capitalists and Marxists, people who want to destroy America and remake it in their own perverted image. Obama has stated he wants to create a national army made up of young servant Obamabots that is on par with the U.S. military. Now he wants to address every child in America and the NEA has produced propaganda literature that is going to be used to help perpetuate the cult of Obamessiah and his minions have the unmitigated gaul to call concerned parents paranoid racists!

If Peter Walsten were to honestly INVESTIGATE Obamessiah and his minions a tenth as well as Glenn Beck has, and reported the facts for a change, he would understand WHY American parents want their children to have nothing to do with viewing Obmamessiah or even listening to him at all. It has nothing to do with racism and EVERYTHING TO DO WITH IDEOLOGY!

A bunch of white idiots voted for Obeymao because they thought they'd prove to the world that America isn't as racist as it's perceived to be, and that surely, the benevolent Obama's election would show the world and ourselves just how tolerant we really are, and that a black man, elected by white men, would never squander such a golden opportunity to mend the remaining racial divide. Shazzaaaaam! 9 months later, and some of these dopes are finally realizing that Obeymao and his cadre of commies hate their stinking, white guts, and rather than healing racial strife, they realize that he is making it worse(among every other thing he sticks his commie fingers in).

And Obeymao goes merrily forward, as if he lives in a vacuum where none of his actions and words are noticed by anyone, least of all, the duped masses who have the nerve to actually notice that maybe the great racial healer is really just another Louis Farakhan. All that could have been discerned before the election, of course, but these same white idiots were transfixed by the hopey-changey utopian dreamscape that their false messiah painted for them.

Yes.

That's a curious thing, is it, considering that fealty to the king is judged-- among his followers-- both by how much you make (less is better) and whether you support the almighty government.

Sounds like some assuaged their white guilt by simply voting for him, and don’t feel the need to support him anymore.

I do not particularly care if someone decides to make an idiotic statement that I object to Dear Leader because I’m racist. The important thing is that people understand that he is a bad person to have leading this country.

Those calling me racists here have called me a right winger, a nazi, a “denier” and any number of other supposedly nasty things. I simply take them all as confirmation that I’M RIGHT, that they know it, and that they have not better argument than to call names.

I’m a racist, if that makes them feel better. I’m also right about these “Progressives” now leading the county are CommuFascists.

This is really really bad news for the 0. If even the Pew Press propaganda poll is reporting this trend, the actually numbers are significantly higher.
