Obama Losing The Youth Vote 'Because White Students Don't Think He's Cool Anymore' By PAUL BENTLEY 7th June 2011
President Barack Obama famously won the 2008 election on a wave of support from America's youth. But any hopes the 49-year-old had of keeping down with the kids appear to have faded - his support from young people is rapidly waning, a poll has found. And for a man known for his 'jacket off' casual style the reason for this slump may be particularly hurtful - students are abandoning the President because they do not think he is cool anymore, it has been claimed.
Back then: In 2008, students voted for Obama because they 'thought he was cool' According to the National Journal's Ronald Brownstein report, President Obama has dramatically lost support from young people - and particularly young white people - in America since 2008. His approval rating among those aged 18 to 29 is currently at 56 per cent - a huge fall of ten points since the 2008 exit polls.
And this comes in stark contrast to Obama's general approval rating levels, which are pretty consistent with those of 2008. The reason for this sudden drop is because students, who rushed behind the Obama campaign in 2008, no longer think he is cool, according to those at Oberlin College, which is known for its hipster left-wing activism.

This is true. I see lot less Obama stickers on affluent white student’s cars now than in 2008.
2 years ago, our local campus was FILLED with Obama stickers. A year ago, not so many.
A couple weeks ago, one of the kids had this bumper sticker:
I was against O
before it was cool
to be against O
the “O” being that red white and blue Obama O Logo.
By the election, the campus lot may be filled with more anti Obama stuff. But don’t kid yourself, it’s not because he’s too liberal, I think it’s because they are finding he’s a liar and not delivering the goods on his liberal promises of free school and all that jazz.
Zero looks like a creepy homosexual.
Snot-nosed punks do not grow up this fast. Something is afoot ...
I prefer the term SMOC ("scrawny metrosexual of color").
“Zero looks like a creepy homosexual.”
Well . . .
I can think of a reason for that.

OBAMA: “. . .You know, they I said this I think in an earlier interview. People think Im cool. . .”
I’ll believe it when I see it.
The prisoners in the Gulags cried when they found out Stalin died. They could not believe that Uncle Joe knew they were there. They blamed it on the system.
A fool in 2012 is just a fool from 2008 who is four years older.
It all sounded great when Obama was an unknown with pretty words and Republicans appeared as the long term failures :”Yes we can”,”The Audacity of Hope”, “Just say yes”
Good news unless they dumped him for Anthony Weiner.
All the Obama people can do is blame race. Their whole existence is based on a black-as-victim viewpoint of ALL life.
In English, the headline reads, “American youth as stupid as ever about civics.”
We tried to tell them!
Oh, we had McCain......dang..
Cool? Steve McQueen was cool.
quick quick tell obama how to be ‘cool’ again so the new crop of 18-29 year olds will vote for him.
Maybe, the old crop, now 22-33 have seen the ........well, we can only hope..........
