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.
An abc poll....how can they be trusted...
Affirmative Action can take you only so far.
Blacks, alone, could not have elected this man. In fact, no combination of minoritites could have elected him. One would have to question the intellect of ANYONE, who approved of him in the FIRST place! The, momentary, diminution of approval is of little succor to the rest of us. And, I’d be willing to bet that there are far more people, who supported him than are willing to admit to it!
The idiotPOTUS has no frakin clue as to how deeply he is destroying this country along racial lines......
Well, having an overtly racist Attorney General does not help. People are tired of being termed racists because they oppose illegal immigration. And the decision not to prosecute the Panthers for voter intimidation was huge. The anti-white discrimination measures in the new Finance Bill will cause more angst as they become better known.
Very soon his only constituency will be the 60’s radicals and the welfare class. He must be defeated.
The radicals are dying off and the welfare class at this point is his only solid base. A base that will be threatened with the new cuts.
Jump back Jack, Forshizel
“I cant image 95% of all blacks are Democrats.”
They used to be nearly all Pubs. Solid middle class, growing wealth, improving civil rights (with the help of the Pubbies). Then the Great (Giveaway) Society started and BAM...they went for the free lunch. How’s that working for them? Did they get the good housing, nice neighborhoods, solid, married middle class...I wonder just how stupid one group of people can be? And no, I am not anti-black. I’m anti-STUPID.
You are giving them too much credit. I would use stronger terms myself.
Wow even after the kill whitey and all the crackerbabies comment made by one of his peeps?
Proof positive that you should pass an IQ test and racial profiling to be allowed to vote! Votes need to be cast by people who choose to educate themselves!
“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.”
I’ve got one of those...we don’t speak, fortunately...but if we did, she would be defending the bstrd...
They'll need to make their decision before 2012.
“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.”
Have you ever seen a picture of his Father? He’s pure Black African. No visible trace of Arab Blood. I don’t know why people keep bringing this Arab crap up. Does it make him worse if he did have some “Arab Blood”/
It makes him less appealing to his base. Which votes for him at around ~90%.
I believe, his dad identified himself as an Arab.
The birth certificate, what we have seen says “Black”.
That was not a term used for Blacks for another eight years. That term wasn’t common for another decade. Also, in Africa the term Black is used as a put down. Negro is preferred in Africa.
He has treated his Muslim heritage as a dark secret. His grandfather was named ‘Hussein.’ That is an Arabic-Muslim, not African, name.
“[Note: Journalist Kenneth Lamb, upon digging deeper into an article by Richard Cohen published in The Washington Post, claims that BHO is descended from Arab slave traders who settled in Kenya. His research shows that Obama, Sr., had one black African maternal grandfather and the rest of his genealogy is Arabic. So, Lamb reasons, Obama is 50 percent white on his mothers side and 43.75 percent Arabic on his fathers side. That means Obamas genetic makeup is only 6.25 percent black African. In order to legally qualify as a “minority,” the government requires that ones genealogy contain one-eighth, (or 12.5 percent) of that specific minority. According to Lamb, Obamas claim that he would be the first “black” president is not legally defensible].”
Nobody said it makes him worse or better.
Let me ask again. Have you ever seen a picture of his Father? If he is not pure Black African, I’m the Emperor of China.
I sometimes can’t tell what race someone was by a picture. If they were 100% or 50%. I guess you can.
His father could identify himself as an Afro-Arab. Do a search on this term and Obama. You will see that Obama has strong Arab ancestry. Thus the name.
“Afro-Arab (sometimes referred to as African Arab) can refer to people of mixed Black African and genealogical Arab ancestral heritage and/or linguistically and culturally Arabized Black Africans. There are communities of Afro-Arabs in East Africa, West Africa, North Africa and the Near East as well as, through recent migrations, Western Europe.”
I'm betting that lots of whites are scared or wary of giving an honest answer when a media pollster calls and asks them what do they think of a black politician, especially our de facto president. That would help explain these numbers.
Because they're racists.
“Looks like the crackas are gettin wise to ya, Bammy...”
No more crackas with the Sayur asem.
I think a basic civics test and economics test should be administered. If you don’t understand how the government or economies are supposed to work then you are contributing to the problem.
We expect people to pass tests to drive. Nothing has more impact on us than voting. There is nothing racist about testing if everyone takes the same test (with rotating questions of course).
