Obama's electoral coalition is crumbling (LA Times is dumping on Hussein Alert)
Los Angeles Times ^ | September 11, 2010 | James Oliphant and Kathleen Hennessey

Posted on 09/11/2010 11:31:30 PM PDT by Zakeet

Nearly two years ago, the political world could only marvel at the breadth of voter support for Barack Obama.

The new president had won over voters once thought to have abandoned his party for good. He'd found new reservoirs of support among groups many thought were tapped out.

He energized a coalition — made up of blacks, women, Latinos, young voters and large numbers of suburbanites — that some believed would keep Democrats in power for years to come.

A scant 20 months later, the Obama coalition is frayed and frazzled.

A majority of those who voted for Obama still approve of the job he is doing. But that number is eroding.

Surprisingly, support for the president among Latinos, young people and women has dropped as much as it has among groups that were considered less likely to stick with the president, such as white males, according to an analysis by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press.

Support among suburbanites has dropped dramatically too, surveys show, while African American voters remain Obama's most loyal constituency and his fiercest defenders.

[Snip]

... dozens of interviews with Obama voters across five swing areas show that the warning signals are blinking for the president's party.

Obama voters evince little interest in the midterm election. When they express goodwill toward the president, it rarely extends to his allies in Congress. Many do not consider themselves Democrats.

Pew's survey experts routinely ask respondents to characterize the president in a single word. In their most recent poll, conducted this summer, more respondents than ever answered with the word "disappointing."

I would never call the Wee Wee disappointing. The idiot has unfortunately turned out to be exactly what I expected from a Community Organizer.

Well you can fool some of the independents some of the time and you can fool the liberals all of the time, but you can’t fool all of us for more than one term.

We should never misread this result as purely ‘even his own voters reject 0bama’s agenda’. Many of those who voted for him are upset today because they think he didn’t dare to go further. The liberals are angry about public option. Hispanics because he didn’t push for “immigration reform” yet. The youths simply because “Huh...?”

If the libs are having buyers remorse over what a disaster they put in the whitehouse, it’s their own freaking fault and deserve whatever fallout comes to the democrat party and damage to their agenda. Zero was the least veted or investigated presidential candidate I’ve ever seen. The media were absolutely criminal in their creation and protection of this mans political messiah image during his campaign and first years in office. They completely failed at their jobs. Any shread of journalistic integrity was thrown right out the window.

Now they are trying to cut their losses and distance themselves from the mess they created. Typical libs.

“What I’ve come to the realization is that the president was an absolutely fantastic campaigner. He was a perfect preacher-slash-minister-slash-professor,” said Peter Gallo, a concert promoter in Raleigh, N.C. “He doesn’t have the skill to legislate, to build coalitions. He does not have the skill to bring people in and say, ‘Come on and let’s get this done.’”

I am so tired of these fools. Yes, the MSM was slobbering over him, but even a casual observer could see the man had no experience at all. In any job. He’d never done ANYTHING except get into a fancy school.

He taught a little? Sat for congress, and stepped out before two years were up. No executive experience. Never even was a mayor, let alone a governor. Never ran a thing in his life. Never ran a business. Just what did he ever do?

I could see it, anyone who could see it. We told people till we were blue in the face. These idiots voted for Obama, all along making fun of Palin, who was a major, sat on energy boards, PTA president, and governor.

The man’s done nothing but play his whole life, and now these jerks who’ve voted this empty suit in have the nerve to COMPLAIN. It’s THEIR fault.

Okay.. So a little more than half of the voters, ~53%, voted for Ubama. According to the LA Times, more than half of the those voters (a "majority" of them) still approve of the job he is doing. Doing the math, that could be as few as 27 percent of all voters. That's pretty freaking poor.

I just read up some on LBJ tonight...I knew some about his presidency, but I’ve started to see many parallels between what happened from 1964-68 and what is happening now. Sure enough, after revisiting LBJ history, it’s amazing how it’s playing out all over again.

Because of LBJ’s ultraliberal agenda that he pushed through in his first two years, the Republicans gained big in 1966, and by 1968, the Dems had split into 4 factions. Were it not for RFK’s assassination, things may have turned out quite differently...

Did you read where LBJ vetoed half of the liberal crap his Democrat congress sent to his desk?
LBJ’s downfall was the Vietnam War.

I lived through those years and remember them... vaguely, but enough.
I just don’t see parallels with Ubama...

...With one exception: LBJ set the table for Nixon’s “Southern Strategy”, and Ubama’s brazen agenda of back door reparations is not going unnoticed. That is, there could well be a serious racial component to the next election. The good news is that it will play out in the Democrat primary when Hillary challenges Ubama for the nomination.

Fasten your seat belt.

I’ve been thinking about LBJ recently myself. People keep trying to draw parallels between Obama and JFK, but I think LBJ is the closest.

And LBJ destroyed the black family and put them on welfare for years. Then when he wasn’t able to handle the war he inherited, he just didn’t run for another term.

I’ve no doubt all this power wasn’t all the fun Obama thought is was going to be.

By the way, I told a liberal LBJ wrecked the black family and she attacked me. But when I told her my reasons for saying so, she backed down and got very silent. It’s the sad truth.

Definitely. That bit where she came out the other day stating we had too much debt the day after Obama said he was going for another stimulus - those were the gauntlet.

The Clinton’s are politicians without peer. I’m just watching to see how they are going to manage displacing Obama without sectioning off the blacks from the Dem party.

Blacks vote dem and nothing has ever stopped them, but if Hillary muscles Obama out the wrong way that just may be what ends that.

EXACTLY!! These people who voted for him are morons -- they were making fun of Palin for running a small city and standing for VICE-Pres and the Dims had a guy who has done nothing but stand for elections, running for Pres.

The main thing is in this year, ALL republicans must get out and vote, vote out all Dems. The independents will not vote or will vote GOP, while even traditional Dim supporters may not feel the urge to vote for this do-nothing, know-nothing president's party. We can have a super-majority.

Hillary will target the soccer moms and independents who will hopefully vote Conservative this election cycle. Obama lost them, probably permanently.

Well, I should write a book.

...the first thing that he accomplished was to cheat on his own political mentor, Alice Palmer, Communist Party USA member, who went once or twice to Moscow and the Soviet Union Communist Party international meetings, and came back to tell America how wonderful the Soviet Union and communism was.

He was her chief of staff.

What does this tell you about the Marxist Communist Obama?

Do you know any other politicians who are chief of staff to an American Communist?

... his next accomplishment was to have her kicked off the ballot using political tricks -— using Communist activist lawyers who challenged at the last moment all her “signatures” for election.

Then he went on the the US Senate using the exact same tricks.

He has never won an opposed election.

I could go on but it is making me sick.

White money (campaign donations) and white guilt. But I’ve seen numbers that 52% of Whites voted McCaine. That it was blacks, Hispanics, Asians that put him over the top to win with 53% of the vote. Jews are white and voted for him 80%.

But lets face the facts that white campaign donations funded the 0bongo machine. Minorities contribute a lot less. Same as in Europe the white man funds his own demise. (And I’m just a Jewish semi-outsider commenting on this)

Of course 0bama had to win via the Electoral Vote which is more complicated

What a great example of the bias through mis- characterization. By saying "A majority of those who voted for Obama still approve of the job he is doing", most would get the idea the majority of the people (over 50%) approve of the job he has done/is doing. But in reality if 54% of the country voted for him in 2008 and now over half of THEM still approve of him, that means something over 27% are satisfied with him. That's quite different than what the author insinuated in this slanted report.

It was the WOMEN who across all demographic groups voted in the majority for the fool.

Decisions of great importance, those that can alter the course of a nation cannot be made based on emotion. The Founding Fathers in their infinite genius and wisdom saw this and denied women the vote.

They were correct and we should have the 19th Amendment repealed.

I have been smelling the Clinton Machine cranking up for a couple of months, read my older post.

But I do no think America will buy her, she is getting long in the tooth and it shows and she is shrill, just listen to the clip Laura Ingraham used to play all the time.

My gut tells me Evan Bayh will ride in out of the sunset and challenge them both.

The Dems will eat it up, even the ardent may still have Clinton fatigue, and by that time with a Conservative House and Senate, they are going to look for a new face for the DNC, because the prospect of having their @$$e$ handed to them in 12' after 10' is too much to bear....

Women are toxic to electoral politics. Especially now that many single women with or without children, are clamped onto Government (on all levels) welfare programs. Gov’t is their ersatz substitute husband and whom they want money from. Meaning they want the money of productive taxpayers

Married women vote conservative compared to the unmarried
