The only bad news is that it is only June.
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.
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.
I had no idea that I lived in North Carolina and was black!?!?!
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.
He’s only half black anyway, just sayin ...
“African Americans”?? Does the author mean black people?
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.
What the holy hell??
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.
No wonder...many thought he would pay their mortgages and buy them a car.
I don’t buy it.
Exactly! Up here in the North he’ll still get a huge African-American turn out to continue the cadillac welfare checks and faux disability payments.
Oddly enough, the unemployment index on the Southside of Chicago continues to worsen with nary a critical word from those residents about Obamugabe.
There are lots of rumours that Obama will not run “In order to spend more time with my family”.
I think blacks are finding out that Obama is really a white man named Barry Soetoro.
Turd One until January 21.
Then the glorious bird can once again be rightfully referred to as ‘Air Force One’.
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:
“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
Guess that makes also makes him TOTUS. We all know what the 'T' stands for.
“if they run a real Clinton Democrat against him”
By George I think you’ve got it!
“Turd One until January 21.
Then the glorious bird can once again be rightfully referred to as Air Force One.”
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.
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.
No offense, but how would you know, unless you hang out there and talk to the folks on the street?
Trust me, there's trouble in River City.
Maybe they are beginning to see him as the neighborhood pimp.
“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.
I work on the SS; Lake Calumet.
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.
What's that - a boat?
Embarrassing too. Just checked your page and see that you're from Illinois. Pardon the earlier comment. You've probably got your ear to the ground there.
No problem, FRiend. Happy Father’s Day (if and where appropriate).
It's appropriate, and it's most definitely allowed in Texas! Happy Father's Day to you too.
Obama has proved to be very ineffective in delivering goodies for his constituent groups. They don't like being stiffed.
