Obama Is Doing Stunningly Bad Among African Americans In North Carolina
Business Insider ^ | 6/12/2012 | Brett LoGiurato

Posted on 06/12/2012 1:42:41 PM PDT by Nasher

President Barack Obama is rapidly losing support among African-American voters in North Carolina, a new poll out today from the Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling shows.

The poll finds that Mitt Romney would get 20 percent of the African-American vote if the election were held today, compared with 76 percent for Obama. Overall, Romney has a 48 percent to 46 percent lead on Obama in the crucial swing state.

Obama received 95 percent of the support from African-Americans in North Carolina in the 2008 election, compared with just 5 percent for Republican nominee John McCain.

If this is true (his sinking numbers) then that explains the “got your back” commercial. It is amazing that the campaign feels the need to reach out to this voting block. His internals must be very scary for Axelrod and company.

This is what I figured. I replied to a earlier post about the “Got Your Back” ad campaign.

“What is Obama’s team seeing on internal polling?”

He’s lost the middle after Obama Care, the 2010 Mid term showed that. Moderates have bailed on him. All he has left is the far left and the black community.

The far left is upset over Obama no going farther on many things, many feel betrayed over his lack of action in Wisconsin. Gitmo still being open and the frequent drone strikes.

The black vote, the Gay Marrige is hurting him - now in matro areas, I dont thing as much, but blacks in the south like North Carolina.....yes its going to hurt.

Some of Bambi’s most passionate haters are among the African American community. They feel more betrayed than the rest of us who pretty much expected to get screwed over when he was elected.

only turnout won’t be so high this time around.

Obamugabe is doing what 50 years of Republicans could not achieve, bringing black people back to the Party of Lincoln......

They realize that he is just a con-man like Jackson and Sharpton. But unlike Jackson and Sharpton, his actions have a directly detrimental affect on their personal lives and fortunes, 401ks, etc.............

The only detractors I have heard of would not have voted for him in 08... so I am skeptical of this. I think it may have more to do with energizing turnout than anything. Who are these folks you speak of.. of course if they didn’t vote for him in 08, then I don’t see them as game- changers? There we go declaring the death of the racist vote. I do feel sorta bad that their historic representative has been a failure. I could not imagine finally getting the point where my race was finally represented in the top office and watch the epic failure. Of course, I would have hoped for a better representative. My race.. Hot- blooded American, will not be represented anytime soon.

I’m finally starting to be hopeful! For the past three years, I didn’t think there was a chance that we would ever be rid of him. That intensified when Mitt was shoved down our throats; but now, I am beginning to think maybe, just maybe...

I think you’re right.

He may be that rare presidential incumbent that loses his re-election bid. There has only been 1 incumbent that replaced the other party only to lose reelection in modern times— jimmuh carter (H.W. Bush lost, but he did not replace the other party). Until a few weeks ago I was resigned to an Obama win.

Not so anymore.

Blacks are also very religious in this area and many pastors are against O’Bummer since he came out for gay marriage. Remember, NC just opposed gay marriage by a 2/3 to 1/3 margin....

I have wondered if they know that barring a miracle, they have already lost.

If I were a black man, I would find the Obama "got your back" ads incredibly insulting and condescending. Obama hasn't done a damn thing for the black people (except put more of them on food stamps) and for him to patronize them in such a manner is disgraceful.

For those who are not familiar with those ads, they feature clips of Obama on the campaign trail in 2008 making campaign promises (that were never fulfilled) over a backdrop of funky soul music. When I first heard one on the radio, it sounded like one of those parody SNL commercials.

Let's hope that the trend in North Carolina is replicated all across America. Obama doesn't care about the black people or the American people in general. He only cares about himself.

Judging from the Blacks on talk radio in Cleveland, they are totally disgusted that obama is giving attention to everybody from moslems to homosexuals, but nothing for them. What it looks like is, No obama stash, no obama vote.

They wont’ vote against Obama. Obama represents racial progress.

Blacks, however, may not volunteer and turn out in the high % as last time around. Even they are sick of the blame Bush b.s. at this point.

Other than the color of his skin, he doesn’t have anything in common with them. His purported father was Kenyan, his mother was white. He did not grow up in the American black (civil rights) experience. Actions speak louder than words and all thought he’s spouted plenty of bull in the black community’s direction, he’s been more than obsequious to Moslems .... and that is who he grew up with in Indonesia. None of this should be a surprise to the black voters in this country ... if they had taken a look behind the exterior color, they would have seen the foreigner who is now in the WH, doing his best to destroy the country.

“Oh. My. God. The election is over. Obama is toast. He’s losing in the biggest landslide in history.”

And that, is the True horror of the Zero Presidency. He’s lowered the bar for what’s acceptable So far, that even his ideological twin, O’Romney, is going to trounce him.

The Zero has been such a monumental disaster that at this point the Republicans could run a dead horse against him and still win.

And after Zero’s retired, that bar will remain lowered That much further because of him. It is not going to be raised again.

We’re screwed.

Oh!!! It’s just plain nasty being right all the time....almost!!!! Six thousand, four hundred times after the 2010 blowout of the Democrat Party, I have witten on this site and countless others, that the Democrat Party should broom Obama by forcing him to resign....or announce that he will not run for re-election. Less then that, and there will be no Democrat Party after, November, 2012. Further explanation is not not requied, unless you are a Democrat!!! Even Black Americans have the incompetent Obama’s number now!!! Amazing, but true!!!

Addition by subtraction, if less AA voters who voted for him in 08 come out in 12, it’s still a big plus for Romney.

I think that's an excellent point. Obama has debased not only the office, but the entire concept of government.

Romney is his ideological mirror image (big government, nanny state, non-Christian) and the fact that all the "official" GOP thought this would be a winner means that socialism has been accepted at all levels.

The only difference is the mouthpiece.

Getting back to the topic, though, I suspect that Obama is not going to run again. He'll get kicked to what is "upstairs," in his mind...that is, a position with some international organization, probably arranged by Bill Clinton, and some other Democrat will be the candidate and will probably win handily. Romney is a Clinton Democrat in everything but name, and if they run a real Clinton Democrat against him, he'll surely lose.

When Obama was campaigning...or just after he became President (I am not exactly sure just when) he gave a speech to an African American audience. It was supposed to inspire them to be all they could be, all they dreamed of being. However, during the speech he said something like:

It is harder when you're an African American, your brains are not like the brains of the White people, you have to work harder to be smart. - or something like that, the exact wording escapes me.

I wish someone would appear who captured that speech and post it everywhere because, it actually is a slap down of the Blacks. In essence, he said they have inferior brains and thinking power. African Americans need to hear him say that and then realize that he has never, ever considered the majority of them to be able to achieve very much.

Does anyone else remember that speech and have any details?
