I don’t see this as bad news. I see this as GREAT news!

The only bad news is that it is only June.

If I were a black man, I would find the Obama "got your back" ads incredibly insulting and condescending.

I do, and I'll bet you dollars to donuts that lots of other black men feel exactly as I do. How dare he pander to us like that, when his social engineering and experimentation with our economy have wreaked such havoc on the ENTIRE country?

And this, on the heels of his 'evolved' acceptance of gay 'marriage'? He has no idea how deeply that offended most blacks in this country, who by and large, disagree vehemently with the gay agenda.

Black men already carry enough stigmas, some of which were pinned on them by black celebrities and athletes, but Obama has surpassed them all by several orders of magnitude. I don't know how we're ever going to live this guy down. He's like the gooney, screwed up cousin who you can't shake to save your life.

They wont’ vote against Obama. Obama represents racial progress. Blacks, however, may not volunteer and turn out in the high % as last time around.

BINGO.

The numbers reflected in this poll are a snapshot of how blacks are feeling about Obama all across the country. Bottom line - they're worse off now, than before they trusted him. That's betrayal in most people's minds, and they'll remember it on election day.

I have a feeling that a good percentage of blacks will just be too busy to make it to the polling station that day.

I sincerely appreciate the black Americans of NC who are willing to vote principle over color. Good for them, and I hope they know there are plenty of white Americans who would do the same.

Suppose the R candidate was Thomas Sowell! And the D candidate was Nancy Pelosi! I would not think a SECOND about anyone’s race. I’d be on fire to vote for Sowell.

May all patriots do the same.

The only thing black about Obama’s life is that he never knew his father, his mother abandoned him and he was raised by his grandparents.

Yeah, look folks - 20% of NC blacks for Mitt are 20% of ALL blacks for Mitt.

Obama is gonna get stomped regardless of how crappy Mitt is as a candidate.

Blacks vote skin color, and that’s why Obama gets 95% of their vote. If Obama were a republican he would still get in the neighborhood of 75 to 80% of black votes. Blacks AND liberal that love him NEVER mention the 50% of him that’s caucasion. As a matter of fact when was the last time you heard about his white grandparents that raised him? That’s all he talked about during the election of 2008 when he was trying to appeal to the white liberal. The minute the morons voted him in office he threw his white side over the cliff.

If they don’t show up to vote for someone other than Obama, it won’t matter - there will still be enough ballots printed and allocated for everyone who is registered, whether they show up or not. It’s the no-shows whose unclaimed ballots will be hijacked by party hacks, but the hacks’ll only be able to do it in precincts where they either control al the election judges or where the judges are known to be unobservant, lazy or easily distracted.

I paid a visit to NC a few months ago.

I saw many offices, stores that had been built within the past 5 yrs. sitting empty.
When I entered “shopping centers” on my gps - I wound up at a strip mall that had been built and seemingly never found tenants.
New buildings with the windows smashed in and “for sale” signs up.

It looked like a place that had been expanding quickly and then everything just....stopped.

I realize Obama won it in 2008, but I figured that was an anomaly. How can this even be close? If I had to guess I would have thought it was something like 60/40 for Myth.

I wouldn’t consider it a slap down, because there is a consistent lower scoring of IQ among “African Americans.” It is well documented. However, I have to interject that although the APA acknowledges the differences in race and intelligence (or at least IQ), the reason for it is still unknown. This has been well documented for decades. Years ago, when I was still in school, there was a lot of conjecture going on between the physical anthropologists and the sociologists as to the cause, whether genetic or environmental. It’s still in debate as to the cause, but the fact remains that on a standardized intelligence test, there’s a racial disparity. You can read more about the subject (I’d recommend reading the studies if you like—I would, but already did read many books involving the subject, years ago—the last about 6 years ago—and am not particularly interested in the topic).

A link and excerpt:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_and_intelligence

“The American Psychological Association has said that while there are differences in average IQ between racial groups, and there is no conclusive evidence for environmental explanations, “there is certainly no [direct empirical] support for a genetic interpretation,” and no adequate explanation for the racial IQ gap is presently available.”

With this particular voting block it is not a question as to who they will be voting for as that is pretty much a foregone conclusion but how many will turn out.As much as the polling shows a 20 point drop in their support, the group will vote 95% for him come election day when all is said and done. Romney has to hope they stay home election day as there is nothing he can say or do to convince them to vote for him. They are the heart of the Democrat Party

That’s right. After the new POTUS Staff has the rugs and upholstery cleaned/replaced the way GW did after Clinton left the Oval Office.

As a citizen of NC, I can tell you, without ANY fear of correction, every DemocRat east of I-77, contrary to what they tell some dumb pollster, will vote again for his imperial majesty, Comrade President Obama the First. They are dyed in the wool Democrats. Their grand daddy was, their daddy was and for the most part they are HANDED voting guides as they enter the polling places that only have instructions on how to vote a straight DemocRat ticket.
I thought they would maybe either vote against him for his pro-homosexual stance since they all go to church (or want us to believe so). But then I remembered that they supported him IN SPITE of his strident, unequivocal support of abortion, abortionists, and that infanticide partial birth abortion. Make no mistake. They will vote their race before they vote their God (which might be the same thing).

Yeah, a 20% drop sounds about right for more socially conservative blacks jumping ship. Some of it could be frustration over the huge black unemployment numbers finally boiling over, but the timing seems to point more towards his gay marriage stance being the motivator.

“76 percent for Obama”?

Please. The Kenyan could eat a live negro fetus on the set of “The Daily Show”, and the blacks will still lock-step vote for him.

They vote for the color of his skin, not the content of his character.

Rumors according to who? I’m sorry but this notion that Obama is not going to run is ridiculous. The guy has been to 50 something fundraisers, and has an ego the size of the moon.

Of course he’s going to run.

The Dems have always been a coalition of interest groups, each wanting something from the government. Unions want government backing so they can commit violence with impunity. Blacks want Affirmative Action, "social services", and government jobs. Academics want government grants so they can be paid for producing crap research.

Obama has proved to be very ineffective in delivering goodies for his constituent groups. They don't like being stiffed.
