Obama's Approval Slide Finds Whites Down to 39%
GALLUP ^ | 11-25-09 | by Jeffrey M. Jones

Posted on 11/25/2009 7:12:43 AM PST by STONEWALLS

"PRINCETON, NJ -- Since the start of his presidency, U.S. President Barack Obama's approval rating has declined more among non-Hispanic whites than among nonwhites, and now, fewer than 4 in 10 whites approve of the job Obama is doing as president."

....I expect that the MSM will spin this as racism....but basically a lot of whites are waking up to the fact that Obama is a blow hard and the economy is getting worse.

Proving once again who are the real racists.

These jerks in the MSM just can't help but count colors, can they.

The whites who voted for him obviously don’t appreciate the change the marxist has in mind for our country. They gave him a chance and he blew it. Nothing to do with race.

The left can’t believe that this can be for any other reason than racism. They’re partially right. The extremely high ratings for those who put themselves in the same race as Obama shows that they indeed are racists.

Oops, he waited too long to bring out the reparation bill. Oh, never mind, ACORN is getting more than their fair share.

Apparently, the fact that the man himself despises America so much (and so obviously), is now being met with more and more people coming to despising him for that very reason.

Understandable. Too bad more didn't see it to begin with because it was there for anyone to see who cared to dig a little and take a look.

RED.

Bright, bloody, communist RED.

Obama is getting down to his base, the far left. I do not think he really cares what his poll numbers are. He is a true beliver, and (unfortunately for us) his side still has a majority in congress. It is going to get worse before it gets better.

The Democrats will lose their majority in 2010. They all know this, and so they have to move the nation as far left as they can in the next few months. They may never have another chance.

It is going to get ugly before it is all over.

I agree. This is another line of attack by Obamaites to deflect blame for the abysmal failure of Obama’s policies and his feckless performance in the office of POTUS.

What these poll results really tells us is how utterly racist and stupid most black people are in the USA.

This guy Jones has been reporting Obama's approval numbers for month's now. At no other time has race been an issue for him, apparently.

They're so transparent.

OK, but...

“Coca-Cola is spearheading a coalition of more than 100 companies pushing a United Nations climate treaty to bind the U.S. to cap-and-trade emissions regulation, commit the world’s wealthiest nations to a potential $10 trillion in foreign aid and, possibly, form a proposed international “super-grid” for regulating and distributing electric power worldwide. “

What’s your second choice? :-)

Now that he’s at -15, he decides that it’s time to 1) make a decision on Afghanistan (during a prime time press conference on Tuesday); 2) hold a jobs summit (after millions have lost jobs); 3) tackle the deficit (he created). What a poll driven loser. Can’t he just do anything for the right reasons? What a weak leader he is. Just as bad as Jimmah.

The whites that voted for him because he is [half] black were doing so because they thought they were buying atonement for their guilt.

They’ve found out they were ripped off in the “bargain”. Racism is worse than ever. “Hate whitey” is worse than ever. Ever policy so far has been stealth reparations.

Could it be that non-Hispanic Whites pay closer attention than other racial and ethnic groups? No. To admit that would be racist.

Actually very telling men approval of him dropped from 60% to under 46% a big 15% drop but even greater is white women are starting to wake up with a drop from 70% to 51% showing a 19% change. This should scare the the democratic party big time if the white women vote drops under 50% they know they’re in a heap of sh!t next election.

It is what anyone with an ounce of objectivity knew. Blacks voted for Obama BECAUSE he is sort of black. It does not matter what Obama’s policies are. He could advocate a “final solution” for blacks, and they would still support him. The canard that blacks supported him because of his policies is pure bulls**t. Obama was elected POTUS primarily BECAUSE he was black and a liberal. The RINO McCain was a dream come true for Obama. Even with all the propaganda spewed by the MSM, people are starting to see Obama for what he is, namely, an empty suit.

Where’s that cartoon of the guy flogging the dead horse?!

I’ve said from the beginning that

1. I don’t “hate” him, and
2. It’s his ideology, not his skin color that has me up in arms.

But I have to confess that that has changed. I do now freely admit that I hate him. I despise his haughty arrogance, and his condescending manor. I hate his groveling before our enemies and slighting our friends. I hate his absence of understanding or common sense when it comes to our national security and our troops. I hate his Marxist tendencies when it comes to his plans to dismantle our economy. I see red when I see his trampling on the traditions that made this country great and promoting notions that is guaranteed to DESTROY OUR NATION.

It is becoming a visceral hatred that doesn’t want to do harm to him, but is ambivalent about seeing harm come to him. Honestly, if a bus hit him tomorrow it would take everything I have to suppress a grin.

The worrisome thing is that I know that I’m not alone. I have overheard more expressions in racial terms than I have in the last thirty years. The post-racial president has set race relations in America back to the sixties (or worse). Surprisingly, where I am seeing it coming from is more from the middle and from the left than from the right.

The left has always been racist and racially exploitative, so there’s not much new there. But I know several people who are squishy moderates that I would never have expected passing along jokes with a racial theme. But there it is.

I expect things to get much, much worse before we ever catch a glimpse of anything better. The driving force - as demonstrated by this article, is that minorities (blacks) have been given a huge expectation by 0b0mba of a massive payoff and they don’t GAS about anything else except getting it. At the moment they are still queuing up for all their free stuff, but that is gonna change. When it fails to materialize - and it WILL fail - then we’ll see a change in the polling.

A hearty +1 to everything in that comment.

I’m afraid the feelings I have for the whole lousy tribe of them is too close to hatred for comfort. As a Christian I know that’s wrong, in other words, a sin. I pray for forgiveness for that ‘way too often these days.

I’m instructed to pray for my enemies, and I try. The best I can do for Bambi and friends is to pray that God makes their way straight when they walk in His way, and frustrate them in their endeavors when they do not.

Good thoughtful post, by the way. Thanks for sharing it.

Oh, and BTW, this clown is probably going to lose in 2012—maybe lose fairly big, although this country has many idiots who may not wake up then (Plus BO has a built in 13% base that ain’t going nowhere).

If/when he does lose—there are going to be “urban riots”—bet on it—it might be a long overdue jump the shark moment for some folks who can’t leave bad enough alone...

White people are not as brainwashed into socialism as so-called ‘people of color.’ I think it’s also interesting that Asians are also turning against Obama. Further, white people are increasingly aware that Obama hates white people and lot of his income redistribution is aimed at taking money from whites and giving it to ‘people of color.’ Indeed, some in the black community boasted last year that Obama was telling them that he was going to take money from whites and give it to them. Obama’s racist chickens are coming home to roost.

The leaders of the big beer companies meet for a drink. The president of Budweiser orders a Bud, the CEO of Miller gets a Miller, the head of Coors orders a Coors, and so on. Until it’s Arthur Guinness’s turn. He orders a soda.

“Why didn’t you order a Guinness?” everyone asks.

Guinness replies, “if you guys aren’t having beer, then neither will I.”

Exactly — and some of us knew this would happen the minute he announced his candidacy!!!! I knew he would win — I knew WHY he would win, and I knew what he would do the country given his background and associations. I was correct — sure wish that had NOT been the case. Sometimes being right is a b*tch...

I expect that he will get re-elected in 2012 for precisely the reason you state Mac....that 13% base!....that’s the foundation that it all rests on....it’s solid and it’s car-pooled to the polls by community organizers...on top of that add another 6% for the American Jewish vote...and another couple of points for the ACORN false registration vote, the convicted felon vote, the illegal alien vote and the graveyard vote and he’s got a bloc of 20%plus....that’s enough to swing any election because so many people don’t even bother to vote at all.
