Skip to comments.LA Times: New polls confirm Obama's Democratic base crumbles
Posted on 07/26/2011 5:17:32 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
With all of the spotlights on the high-stakes debt maneuverings by President Obama and Speaker John Boehner the last few days, few people noticed what Vermont's Sen. Bernie Sanders said:
"I think it would be a good idea if President Obama faced some primary opposition."
This is political treason 469 days before a presidential election.
Now, comes a new ABC News/Washington Post poll with a whole harvest of revelations, among them, strong indications that Obama's liberal base is starting to crumble. Among the nuggets:
Despite those hundreds of billions of blown stimulus dollars and almost as many upturn promises from Joe Biden, 82% of Americans still say their job market is struggling. Ninety percent rate the economy negatively, including half who give it the worst rating of "poor."
Are You Better Off Today Than Jan. 20, 2009?
A slim 15% claim to be "getting ahead financially," half what it was in 2006. Fully 27% say they're falling behind financially. That's up 6 points since February.
A significant majority (54%) says they've been forced to change their lifestyle significantly as a result of the economic times -- and 60% of them are angry, up from 44%.
"More than a third of Americans now believe that President Obamas policies are hurting the economy, and confidence in his ability to create jobs is sharply eroding among his base," the Post reports.
Strong support among liberal Democrats for Obama's jobs record has plummeted 22 points from 53% down below a third. African Americans who believe the president's measures helped the economy has plunged from 77% to barely half.

the economy is only going to get worse
as comrade obama expects it to.
What can I do to help?
Correction: as obama is trying, intending, and forcing it to.
I wish they would literally crumble. Every last one of them.
Franklin Pierce was the only incumbent elected president to lose the primary for the second term.
Do you want to know what the funny part is?
When I went to do a google search, I only typed “has an incumbent” and google, as the top suggestion, completed my question with “president lost a primary”.
I think more than just a few are typing that question today.
Hussein’s cult base may never vote FOR the Constitution, but they may be sufficiently depressed by his epic failures that they will not show up at the polls.
Of course Hussein will employ the scare tactic strategy, the vote fraud machine, and the BILLIONS in free advertising via the fellating media.
Where the term ‘balanced’ is concerned, I am convinced that in a ‘life or death’ challenge ‘O’ would be hard put to even define the word!!
I know it's dated and overused, but I am thinking of the ‘Wizard of Oz’ scene when the ‘wizard’ is exposed for a fraud who no one believes or respects.
Actually, the rest of American is finally catching up with Conservatives, who pegged “O” from the very beginning. He is phony, hopelessly fallible, dangerously flawed, gratuitously irresponsible and anti-American.
If “O” gave a good G*^ damn about this country, this would have been on the fast track to resolution months ago!! We all want this nightmare to end.
That's where we are at and I'm actually thankful it isn't worse for us. My hubbies a Realtor. His business dropped off by about 40% since 2009. I don't know what the other realtors are doing for money. We've made monthly cuts of about $300 a month. Which wasn't all bad. We found away of saving ourselves about $150 a month on our phone bills and cut out all extras.

Don’t believe it. Just another Media lie.
This is just more of the smoke and mirrors propaganda campaign from the 0 Campaign to try and make him look “Centerist”. These people will be working feverishly to reelect 0 next year.
