Skip to comments.Zogby: Obama Facing 'Serious Crack' in His Youth Base
Posted on 06/06/2012 2:06:46 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Respected pollster John Zogby tells Newsmax that the younger voters who massively supported Barack Obama in 2008 could now be a serious crack in his base going into the November election.
Zogby says his most recent polls show Obama essentially tied with Republican challenger Mitt Romney. Analyzing the presidential race among several demographic groups, he says in an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV:
Obama right now in his favor is doing very well among Latinos and is likely to do very well among Latino voters. They not only were critical to him in 2008, but were expecting two million more Latino voters in 2012. Its not likely that Republicans are going to do well with Latino voters under any circumstances.
Number two, he had 95 percent of the African-American vote in 2008. He will get that again.
The creative class, 35 million strong who work in the world of ideas and who helped tilt a lot of formerly red states blue, they are turned off by issues like contraception and some of the elements of social conservatism that came out during the Republican debates.
The fly in the ointment for Barack Obama is young people, 18 to 29 years old. He won massively among that group. This is a completely different group this time around. [There has been] three and a half, almost four years of recession for this group, a lot of hopeless. Watch a battleground play out in the fall, not between Romney and Obama on college campuses but between Obama and Gary Johnson, the libertarian, who I think speaks to a lot of frustration of young people.

Obama has faced many a crack in his youth.
Don’t say “crack” around the won. He tends to get sweaty and excited.
Let’s face it Obama will turn us into a country of minorities, gays, welfare cases and malcontents.
Working, middle class, whites, need not apply.
I’m not against minorities, I am against our demographics being manipulated for political gain.
They must have been on crack to vote for him the first time
I just hope some of the wisened 22-year olds have a good talking-to with the new 18-year olds
“turned off by issues like contraception and some of the elements of social conservatism that came out during the Republican debates.”
Zogby bias? It was the media and Obama kept bringing it out. Republicans mostly wanted to rip on Obama during the debates.
. . . “when you could afford it”?
I don’t believe nearly as many blacks will go to the polls this time. Obama may get 95% again but it will be a much smaller real number. There is no enthusiasm on the streets for Obama; no reason to get out and vote. I also doubt there will be 2 million more latino voters. Latinos have been leaving this country in droves and many of those remaining here are unemployed. Again, there is no enthusiasm driving latinos to the polls. Obama is on track for a defeat in November of epic proportions.
Obama faces serious crack every day. Can you say "Moosechelle"?
I must add “creative class” to “nudge” on the list of words I never want to hear again once this clown leaves office...
95% of the African-Americans voted for Bambi? Why????
Because they liked his ideas?
Or is that what racism really is?
It’s not racism as much as it’s brain washing.
They vote 95% for every democrat, black or white.
Not to worry, AmeriCorps, SEIU, AFSCME and the DMC are buying thousands of these plush GM/Proterra battery-electric buses to take young voters to the polls.
Does Pres Obama get crack flashbacks?
Obama did some serious crack in his youth from 13 to 50.
. . . when you could afford it?
...Obongo enjoys both “cracks”.
