Skip to comments.Fox News Poll: Democrats Deserting Obama
Posted on 07/19/2010 6:31:16 AM PDT by RobinMasters
Throughout the Obama administration, the president has been able to count on the solid support of Democrats. Not anymore.
According to the Fox News/Opinion Dynamics poll, Obama's job approval among Democrats has dropped from 84 percent two weeks ago (June 29-30) to 76 percent on July 13-14.
At 76 percent, this level of job approval is below any the Fox News poll has ever recorded.
Why the collapse? Most likely it is due to liberal disappointment with the continuation of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, the continued use of Guantanamo, Obama's inability to cope with the oil spill, and his refusal to push immigration reform when he could have passed it before he lost his 60 vote majority.
Undoubtedly, the renewed sluggishness in the economy is also playing its part.

76% support isn’t exactly “deserting”..................
I’m glad that this is the political reality, and I can believe it...even so...it is sickening to think that libs could actually be disappointed in this communist. I guess some 20 or 25% of the US population is at this stage beyond any redemption.
LOL! Why guess? The answer is much simpler.
Even a lib doesn't like being lied to.
Unemployment under Bush - 4.7%
Unemployment under Obama - 9.8%
... eventually even Democrats wise up
dick morris. I have no idea how this guy is ever taken seriously, by anyone.
An 8% Dim drop in support for The One is huge!
I’m always suspicious when I hear of dems “deserting” 0bama. When election time comes, they will come home to their nefarious party. They always do. The only thing that gives them annoyance about 0bama is their perception he’s not radical enough for them.
What a crock, they are “deserting” just long enough to get re-elected. anyone that thinks otherwise is out of their ever lovin mind.
Leopards don’t change spots and libtards P!$$ away money.
I think Morris is wrong. These are blue dog dems deserting, not yellow.
Don’t worry...Obama will promise them that their “off the chart” BMI will not result in any loss of Obama care or food stamps or free breakfasts and lunches etc etc.
Just wait until they find out what they have to pay for the Obamacare tax. That’s when his numbers will really plummet. Just got my open enrollment letter from state retirement. They’re not pulling punches; cost increases due to federal health care are openly mentioned.
When election time comes, they will come home to their nefarious party. They always do.
And this is something that the republicans never do, and this last time has cost America dearly.
I don’t think it’s liberals deserting the Democrat Party. It’s moderates. They are finally realizing that there is no room in Obama’s Party for anyone who is not a hard-core Commie. They are also seeing the disastrous results of Obama’s policies. While people are pooh-poohing the drop from 84 to 76 percent, this is a killer for Dems. If discouraged Dems stay home and Dems who vote will vote against the Dems, they are toast.
Yep. With a real unemployment rate closer to 20% than 10% it means everyone in the country who hasn't lost their job has a friend or family member who has. They are scared because politics (and its consequences) has now become very real for them. This is exactly what happened to Carter and it's what launched the era of Reagan.
They are abandoning him because he is not far enough Left?
And his numbers among Democrats is ONLY 76%? Like any Liberal marriage, don’t worry about the 24% using their little emotional tantrums to manipulate their leaders. They will be back, along with countless dead and illegal residents to defraud the election for him again.
to lose 25% of your base this early in a presidency is not good. Bush kept the GOP up around 90% for 3/4s of his term. There is no guarantee that he can’t regain their support or that they wouldn’t vote for him again, but there is definitely unrest.
