Gallup: Obama down among every demographic from 2008
Washington Examiner ^ | October 16, 2012 | Conn Carroll

Posted on 10/16/2012 11:34:00 PM PDT by Zakeet

Gallup posted the first peak inside their daily tracking poll demographics today and there is zero good news for President Obama. His support has declined among every single demographic identified by Gallup, often by double digits.

Obama’s biggest losses are among college graduates (+2 to -22), southerners (even to -22), Americans aged 30 to 49 (+6 to -10), and, surprisingly Obama is also down among postgraduates (up 30 to up just 14).

I met Romney a few years ago at the J W Marriot in D.C. My daughter was recieving an award for a nationwide essay contest. I was headed to breakfast and , I surmised by his attire (gym clothes) he was returning from a work out. It was around Mid 08. I asked him if he was going to run. He wouldn’t tell me. He said,”We will know soon.” he is a genuinely kind hearted and decent man. A considerable upgrade from the standard mark 1 mod 1 politicians we have been forced to accept.

“surprisingly Obama is also down among postgraduates (up 30 to up just 14)”

The higher the income the harder it will be to find a job in the United States; it should be “surprising” that these jobs as well are going to Asia ASAP.

In the current economy the worst thing a person can do is invest time and money in a skill where the work can be sent overseas (because it will be); it is probably a lot mor lucrative to learn auto mechanics or be an electrician.

And yet the polls will still use 2008 numbers as if this is going to be a repeat of 2008.

Actually i think its the regular college grad who’s lost the most ground under this buffoon. Once u can get that advanced degree you’re going to see more demand.

I agree that undergrads lost more because there are more of them (and more foreign replacements for them); because of their salaries those with higher degrees are even more logical targets for outsourcing. At this point we educate Asia’s MBAs, etc. HERE, so they can go back to Asia taking an advanced-degree job with them.

Anyone who earns more than $30K per year has forces at work either importing workers here to do it in their place or working furiously behind the scenes to send that job elsewhere. The more you earn the more desperate the scramble to get that done...

I don’t hear of any former McCain voter switching their vote to 0bama this term. But I’ve heard plenty of former 0bama voters switching.

This proves one thing for sure.... that folks that only have a High school diploma are SMARTER than many with post-grad degrees.

Obama is NOT winning any group he lost in 2008 and not doing better with any group he lost. Gallup has him losing Catholics 51/49, Battleground has him losing Catholics 47/45. Both are off by about 6 points but the point is clear: No Democrat has ever won the presidency while losing the Catholic vote and Barack Obama will not win the Catholic vote.

Never a truer statement. More college grads (who never go to grad school) see the light. I have been through both medical and graduate school, and I’ve consistently seen that the “higher” the degree the greater the “leftist quotient”. One can be too smart for their own good, and graduate school often attracts leftist slackers who never want to grow up.

"I don’t hear of any former McCain voter switching their vote to 0bama this term. But I’ve heard plenty of former 0bama voters switching" I agree with you. Same goes with yard signs, there aren't many Obama signs around here at all. That wasn't the case in 08. There were signs, bumper stickers and supposed enthusiasm for Obama. It isn't so this time around. People who weren't talking about voting in 2008 are talking about voting for Romney this year. I'm cautiously optomistic. GET OUT THERE AND VOTE!

“But for the 19th Amendment you’d never had heard of Jimmy Carter, Billy Clinton or Barry Obama.”

As a woman, and a Vet, I agree. I’ve long advocated that it was a mistake to let women vote. Now that the horse is out of the barn, it’s up to we ConservaBabes to educate the dumbasses that vote (D) for no other reason than they have no other way of making it through life save for Father Government.

The feminization of our society has not done us one bit of good. It has destroyed families, made men feel obsolete and we have two generations now of Nancy Boys to contend with.

Wish we could turn back the clock and only women who were land owners could vote...but, that’s just me. :)

“Gallup posted the first peak inside their daily tracking poll demographics today....”


“[F]irst *peak* inside”? Really? From where do they get journalists nowadays?

There’s a Twitter account with the user name “StealthMountain” that responds to every tweet that incorrectly spells “sneak peek” as “sneak peak.” The response shows a cartoon of an anthropomorphic mountain appearing to sneak up on someone, and the text is comprised simply of “I think you mean “sneak peek.”” Perhaps StealthMountain needs to ask his cousins FirstPeak and PeakInside to start their own Twitter accounts.

I don’t think that graduate school attracts lefties, I think the screening process leaves lefties in command of the field.

To get to post graduate education you have to run a phalanx of leftie professors who give you lesser grades if you disagree with their leftist social views or Marxist agendas, and then you have to be accepted into a post graduate school and sponsored by a professor in the field you want to get your post graduate degree. Then your dissertation has to pass muster with the professors on the committee that reviews dissertations and pass your ‘orals’.

Looks like it’s probably pretty stacked against conservative leaning students.

High school graduates may not be more intelligent than post graduates, they may have just had 4 less years of brainwashing.

Looking at these numbers, I can only conclude that college, and even more so graduate school, impairs thinking and makes one stupid.

I have an MBA and I know he's worse than Carter.

The true lefties that just keep going to college and never get a real job, kinda like their master himself, stick with him like fly on $hit.

The Voter Fraud machine in 2012 will be cranked up.

We all must work, and work hard, to be sure we defeat it.

Chicago, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Miami and Detroit will all be taking cues from Team Obama to get the turnout in the urban precincts to 104 to 105%.

Let’s not stop...let’s keep working.

We also need to take the Senate by a good margin, and make sure our legislators help keep a good man, Mr. Romney, on a conservative path.

There is much truth in what you say. Many professors who are advisers to graduate students treat them badly. There is little the graduate students can do. 30 years ago, I saw a professor (himself foreign born) treat foreign graduate student almost like personal slaves. I only received my masters because I recorded the man brag about how I would never get my degree because I was "unloyal" to him.

I believe that there are schools where conservatives have a chance, such as Texas A&M.

I agree, but we as conservatives have to educate our entire nation. I think that happens by teaching the Constitution and reaching out one by one to show how it protects us and preserves our Republic and our liberty.

I would like to thank all of my fellow 30-49 year old, college graduate southerners for realizing that I am right and agreeing with me.

The change among college graduates doesn’t surprise me. There are so many college graduates without a job and no prospects that I’d be surprised if they did vote for him. I know some people might enjoy living in their parents’ basement, but most don’t.

And yet the polls will still use 2008 numbers as if this is going to be a repeat of 2008.
No way the Dems come anywhere close to the 2008 turnout. This will be much closer to 2010 than 2008.

That's the kind of mistake I'd make.

But no one is PAYING ME TO WRITE for the national news!!!!! I'd damn sure proofread if they were!

There’s a Twitter account with the user name “StealthMountain” that responds to every tweet that incorrectly spells “sneak peek” as “sneak peak.”

That is hilarious! That person deserves some kind of comedy award.

I was thinking more of a Nobel Prize.

BTW, what’s truly hilarious is the reactions that the tweeters have to the “diss” they received. NFL replacement refs didn’t get as many insults as this guy gets daily.
