RE :"Feeling let down by a president they once had high expectations for, blacks, Hispanics and younger voters are starting to give up on President Obama.
Pollster John Zogby told Secrets that his latest poll found a big drop in support for the president among the three key constituencies who feel that Obama hasn't delivered the results he promised in his reelection campaign. “These three groups all have high expectations and feel a sense of ownership because of their strong support,” the pollster said. “He is losing some of the strength he once enjoyed among groups that have formed the nucleus of his coalition.”
Consider the results from the latest Zogby Analytics poll of 919 likely voters taken July 12-13. While Obama won 61 percent of the youth vote in 2012, only 46 percent approve of his job as president. He won with 71 percent of Hispanics and 93 percent of African Americans, but now stands at 68 percent and 84 percent respectively.
Zogby said that Hispanics are nervous about immigration reform and want the president to do more to make good on his promise to grant amnesty to 11 million illegal immigrants. “While the White House and fellow Democrats prefer the president lay back and not rev up opposition by campaigning, Hispanics want him out there,” said Zogby.
For blacks, said the pollster, “they thought he would be able to do so much more.
Obama made a hell of a lot of promises and demands on congress and he got close to nothing passed this year(term) so far.
Once again Rubio claiming that getting that Senate immigration bill to Obama will hurt him or upset him was a huge lie. The above shows that, Obama would get credit for any immigration bill he signs and certainly a Dem one like that (Rubio and Schumers) would make his day.
This is his second term, its now (legacy items) or nothing for him. All he got them big was Obama-care.

(To GOP : Any path to US citizenship IS putting them ahead in line. Stop lying about your position.)
