Barbara Botoxer's aides should make her lie down before showing this latest SurveyUSA California Obama rating. Among students, his disapproval has hit 60%! That is going to help send Botoxer down the drain versus Fiorina as well as help a number of other seats.

Unfortunately, the young voters probably disapprove of him because he’s not left-wing ENOUGH. That’s why his approvals have gone down among democrats. It’s not that they’ve wised up to him, it’s that we haven’t turned into the Soviet Union fast enough for their liking.

The surprise in this poll is the negative rating among students and 18-34 age group. This isn’t the tea party demographic. Many of these oppose his position on don’t ask, don’t tell and his failure to stick with single payer health insurance. Don’t expect that low rating to extend to Boxer. They may also have a low opinion of the health care plan as young healthy people will be carrying the load for the old and infirm.

The encouraging result for Republicans is the high number of independents with a negative opinion.

Obamacare is the common denominator. Fiorina should make Boxer the deciding vote to pass the health care plan and tie it to her like the albatross.

Chart shows blacks have 80%/18% (approval/dis) while whites are 40/57, hispanics 47/47, asian 44/41. SurveyUSA indicates blacks comprise only 6% of adults while whites are 51% of adults and hispanics 28%.

The Black approval rate is at least moving downward. It is is 80%, which is the lowest I have ever seen it.

Blacks are realizing he ain’t no brother and that he’s making things worse for them and all Americans.

80% seems very high until you think that blacks vote 93% democrat. He’s lost a lot of points.

Of course, a lot of these are people that thought this brother was going to buy them a house and get their reparations from whites.

Meant to say “gay marriage”.

All of these Obama polls seem to have about 20% of conservatives having a positive opinion of Obama. I doubt that 1% of conservatives have a positive opinion of Obama and they reside in nut houses and aren’t available to respond to polls.

"Wow, man, like, you know, that whole Hope and Change stuff when I was a sophomore, was like, you know, smoke and mirrors and bait and switch and stuff, and we DON'T get jobs on graduation? Like, no waaaaay dude. Have to move back in with Mom and Dad? Like, bummer...."

Poor kids. How taken in by those satanic, socialist lies two years ago. Just like young kids all around the world on college campuses. I guess they have to learn the hard way.

Younger voters tend to be more idealistic, can be fooled once or twice, but are not so set in their ways as to become permanently self-destructive overall. Unemployment among young college graduates is at record highs. Voters of all ages tend to vote their pocketbooks.

I believe the younger voters are turning away from the empty promises of the left. We'll know in a few weeks.

not so much footing the bill as pulling the plug. Most of the last two or three generations have been raised on entitlement, parented out of guilt (not love; you poor, poooooooor, children of divorce. . .have a cookie), and narcissism.

They can’t WAIT to hasten their elders death to claim their fully anticipated and expected inheritances.

Obummer is a prime example of a person who was pitied and not parented. No expectations, no rules, no boundaries, no respect for adults/authority, no structure

. . .other than soccer lessons with their divorced, custodial parent, all american soccer “single” mom who has ferreted dad out of the children’s lives, only keeping his wallet in matriarchy sup. . .errr i mean “CHILD” support.

These numbers are remarkable, if accurate. Rasmussen had him with 56% approval just a month ago. The WSJ poll I just heard about this morning had him at a ridiculous 46% nationwide! If he is only at 45 in CA then in the rest of the country it must be lower. Maybe people are finally getting a little tired of the condescension and arrogance.

If the numbers are dropping in CA then it might be bad news for Boxer.

The one thing that will counter 50 years of liberal indoctrination of our youth in the cesspools of the public schools and universities is the INTERNET. I tell you, the kids are surfing around, finding our comments about progressivism all over the internet and are un-doctrinating themselves. The internet has single-handedly educated people about our founding and the ideals upon which this country was conceived. There is no way to avoid it—the internet has been the tool that the libs hate the most, as you cannot pry the computer out of kids’ hands. That is why I try to post on every blog I am registered on, to keep hitting the message home again and again. They are reading us and questioning their indoctrination. Years of brainwashing are evaporating and the new “hip” thing is to be a patriot again. Yessirree-—the internet (and Glenn Beck too, of course.) The Tea Party is on everyone’s mind and tongue these days, and all you have to do is Google Tea Party once and read for yourselves what is the new Renaissance in America.

I have a child in their junior year at a well known school in the northeast.

The only time they ever mentioned anything about Obama was to briefly say "he's in over his head". Basically, dismissing him as someone who is not to be taken seriously, and definitely someone not worth arguing over.

This poll doesn't surprise me. I think kids see through the BS. It has nothing to do with political leanings.

FWIW.

I have a Senior who is currently attending job fairs. The news and outlook for the vast majority of the soon to be graduates is very bleak.

Couple the dismal job prospects with the college loan balances and all of a sudden college kids are thinking twice about hope and change.

Exactly. They wanted instant results on 0bama's promises, and very likely they think he's drifted too far to the right.

It'd be interesting to find out what their reactions are to prominent conservatives.

<a lot of these are people that thought this brother was going to buy them a house and get their reparations from whites.

One of my sisters, an educated person, actually told me that Obambi would ‘help the black family.’ Naturally, I was confused - how the heck was this guy going to help the black family? Of course, then I got into how she needed to help herself and not depend on the government, which, since Johnson, has done just about everything it could to destroy the black family via reliance on government aid.

In one ear and out the other...

I am not sure of that. Young voters have been hit especially hard with unemployment.

It ain’t just the kids! Half the adults I talk to don’t seem to know that there are big changes set to happen in January. They will scream when they see their first 2011 paycheck and the income tax deduction increases. They act as if they never heard of it.

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Where I live we have a high percentage and I see no Obama bumper stickers and I hear no words favoring Obama. It seems that those who don’t want to speak negatively of him are not speaking of him at all. Yes, some will speak negatively. There has always been a strange disconnect in that most black people in this area, if questioned on specific points, will give answers that indicate they are as conservative as whites if not more so but then they go to the polls and vote Democrat. If the disconnect ever collapses and black people start voting their real interests the Democrats are dead in South Carolina.

And 95% of Black voted for Obama in the 2008 election.

Not entirely. Some young people are getting an ice-cold dose of reality because they are graduating with a load of student debt which they have to start paying back and no job prospects.

The same thing happened to my generation back when Jimmy Carter was president, only the level of debt was much, much less.

Have you seen “You Tube” recently? I’m pleasantly surprised and shocked about the numbers of young/younger people who are really rapping on Obama and some in Congress! Some of them are really harsh; even harsher than we are on “Free Republic”! They might not like G. Beck, S. Palin, or R. Limbaugh, or some didn’t like GWBush, etc.. But they can’t stand Obama and many Congressional leaders either!

Now young military people account for a lot of that. However, there are a number of non-military who don’t like him/Congressional leaders either. Some of that may be because they feel he’s not liberal enough. There are many on DU in that category also.

There are a number of them that feel he/Congress. ldrs. are going too far to left! They are probably socially liberal for the most part. But some may be financial or political conservatives or libertarians. Although the language and the way they express themselves gets pretty grungy and nasty, it is really funny sometimes in spite of that! Still it’s really heartening to see many of them ‘get it’ at least.
