According to two new polls, the president's most loyal voting bloc is not siding with him on his planned assault against Syria.
African Americans, President Obama's most loyal voting bloc, nevertheless are breaking with the president over his request for military action against Syria, according to two new surveys. Hispanics likewise join the majority in their opposition to a military response to reports that the Syrian government used chemical weapons.
"A sharply divided Senate committee voted Wednesday to give President Obama limited authority to use force against Syria, the first step in what remains a treacherous path for Mr. Obama to win Congressional approval for a military attack," Mark Landler, Jonathan Weisman and Michael R. Gordon reported Wednesday for the New York Times.
The 10-to-7 vote showed bipartisan support for a strike, but bipartisan opposition as well.
A national survey conducted for the Washington Post and ABC News found 40 percent of African Americans supporting airstrikes against Syria and 56 percent opposed. For Hispanics, the figure was 31 percent supporting but 63 percent opposed. For whites, it was 38 percent supporting, 58 percent opposed. The survey was conducted by telephone Aug. 28 to Sept. 1 among a random national sample of 1,012 adults.
A survey by the Pew Research Center, conducted Aug. 29-Sept. 1 among 1,000 adults, yielded similar results, according to a racial breakdown provided to Journal-isms. The sampling of Asian Americans and Native Americans is usually too small to be included.
Asked, "Would you favor or oppose the U.S. conducting military airstrikes against Syria in response to reports that the Syrian government used chemical weapons?" only 22 percent of black non-Hispanics said they were in favor, 53 percent said they were opposed and 25 percent said they did not know.

So much for Bill O'Reilly's insistence that most American's are against the strikes simply because "they don't like Obama".
They don’t back him on celebrating sodomy either.
Their unemployment rate under the Clown is SIGNIFICANTLY higher than it was under Bush.
How I wish all that would translate into them walking away from him.
BOR is an IDIOT!! WHO the hell wants to get involved in Syria’s CIVIL WAR where there would be no good winner, only WORSE ones.
That’s not what we’re hearing from the congressional black caucus.
Blacks remain up obammy’s rear end by about 95 percent.
Cause he’s gonna pay their lectric bill or something.
Breaking with him my a$$. Were another election today, blacks might vote 93% for Obama instead of 95%.
hey, you didn’t see France or England getting into our Civil War did ya? Lets just wait a bit and see what happens. War is Hell folks. Always has been since the time of King David. Now we can see the Hell in our living rooms on TV—thats all. Blacks would be wise to not back Obama—because they will be the first drafted for the ‘boots on the ground’.
‘Syria? Is that near Fresno?’
If we got and start WWIII, there WILL be a DRAFT and it better include GIRLS now, since the Left want everything EQUAL!
And that proves that their vote is devoid of any consideration except race. Let me contradict myself and ask rhetorically, would they vote in such a percentage if a candidate were a black conservative?
“If we got and start WWIII, there WILL be a DRAFT and it better include GIRLS now, since the Left want everything EQUAL!”
There will never be a draft again in this country (as in Europe); those days (and that country) are gone. We’ve come a long way since people believed everything they were told to get them to go to war; now nobody trusts the government (regardless of which party runs it), and that is probably the correct way people should view those who wish to rule them.
It may be true that average black working class citizens don’t agree with the administration but they don’t matter. The members of the house of representin will back their guy. They all have safe districts and are a year away from being held accountable by the voters in their gerrymandered districts. Anyway, who are they going to vote for, some white person?
Pretty sure this is going to go down as possibly the military action from a president with the least amount of popular support in at least the last 70 years, possibly in all of American history.
>>How I wish all that would translate into them walking away from him.
And the Dem party.
The only way blacks will walk away from odumbo is when the “gravy train” hits the wall and the “free stuff” stops being handed out. Then, and only then will blacks turn their back on odumbo and the demodummies.
What happens if/when this gets voted down? Will Obama act anyways because he knows the GOP wont do anything like impeach? Or Will Obama take it like a man and scurry off to some dark corner like the vermin he is?
I am betting he does something. He realizes that he has a lot of Media running flak for him and nothing will happen.
Are you Syrious?
