Skip to comments.Obama's erosion among white voters continues
Posted on 07/14/2010 1:41:01 PM PDT by jessduntno
The latest Washington Post/ABC News poll shows President Obama's standing among white voters continuing to slip, a potentially ominous sign for his party with the midterm elections fast approaching.
Just 40 percent of whites in the Post/ABC survey approve of the job Obama is doing, his lowest rating among this key demographic since the start of his presidency and well below the 50 percent approval number that he carries nationwide. Forty-three percent of white voters strongly disapprove of the job Obama is doing, while just 19 percent strongly approve.
Among the other lowlights with whites in this poll for Obama: 54 percent of college-educated whites now disapprove of the job he is doing, and, among white college-educated women, Obama's approval numbers has dipped below 50 percent for the first time in his presidency in Post/ABC polling.
Much of Obama's struggles with white voters seems directly attributable to the public's deep pessimism about the economy. (Ninety-four percent of whites polled rated the economy either not so good or poor.) Just over one in three whites (37 percent) approve of Obama's handling of the economy -- his worst rating among that demographic group ever. Forty-eight percent of white voters strongly disapprove of Obama's stewardship of the economy, while 13 percent strongly approve.

How low would it go before the PTB pull the plug on Obama and run Hillary? Bilderberg 2012 should be quite interesting.
I’ll be curious to see if Palin goes and what happens around that decision.
White, college-educated women are not too bright...
I have a complete moonbat Cindy Sheehan style sister inlaw who saw the light over his oil spill incompetence and is disgusted by the cry of racism every chance his hacks get.
And yet, his approval rating amoung blacks stands at 119%
(Chicago style numbers, dontcha know...)
But how...how in Hades could 40 percent of Whites approve of this zip wad after all this time???
setting the media template....We’re RACISTS! RACISTS! We’re all RACISTS, can’t ya see?? /sarc
How? Guilt thanks to the public education system and political correctness.
They “support” him because it makes them feel good about themselves.
Some thought/think they bought racial absolution with his election.
Many are finding out they got ripped off, as “race relations” are worse than ever.
The crackas are feeling this way:
NEW, Updated, Dr. Seuss Book.
I do not like this Uncle Sam,
I do not like his health care scam.
I do not like these dirty crooks,
or how they lie and cook the books.
I do not like when Congress steals,
I do not like their secret deals.
I do not like this speaker, Nan ,
I do not like this ‘YES WE CAN.’
I do not like this spending spree,
I’m smart, I know that nothing’s free.
I do not like your smug replies,
when I complain about your lies.
I do not like this kind of hope.
I do not like it, nope, nope, nope!
That is soooooooooooooooo encouraging. Hopefully she is one of MANY!
I guess Rasmussen finally got his “strongly approve/strongly disapprove” category accepted by the mainstream pollsters.
He’s unlikely to lose the black vote unless he suddenly becomes white. The numbers clearly indicate racial bias on the part of blacks to elect a president solely on the basis of race. I can’t image 95% of all blacks are Democrats.
Pot calling kettle...
Are you telling me that whites have a problem with a President who refuses to prosecute voter intimidation by a group which espouses killing white babies?!! God that sounds like you’re typical overreacting racist white person.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
They still love Michael Jackson and want to turn his estate into a State Park. He turned white.
I have said this before. The Black Panthers and their language are going to be tied to Obama and the Democrat Party. The ‘Rats will soon become the party of minorities, where white people will not be made to feel welcome, sort of like Detroit. More and more whites will quietly leave the party until it becomes margialized and a shadow of it’s former self.
Why are liberals so fixated on race? I don’t care that UhBama is a black, I care that he is a RED.
White people surely are dumb if it takes them THIS LONG to catch on to obama! (spoken as a white guy)
I think this is why the birth certificate has not been fully released.
I think it says his father is Arab. Which would diminish his base.
