Poll: Working Class Voters Abandon Obama
Breitbart News ^ | June 4, 2014 | by MIKE FLYNN

Posted on 06/04/2014 3:34:34 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

A new CNN poll of Americans finds falling support for President Obama on every policy issue. On no single issue does a majority of Americans approve of Obama's position. On many important issues, e.g. health care, immigration and foreign policy, his approval ratings have reached new lows. Perhaps surprisingly, however, his approval ratings are worst among America's working class. Those earning less than $50k and those who haven't been to college have turned decidedly against Obama.

On voters' top issue, the economy, 61% of voters disapprove of Obama's performance. Just 38% approve. Obama's numbers are 7 points worse than they were on the eve of the GOP landslide in 2010. His approval ratings on health care, illegal immigration, gun policy and the federal deficit have all reached new lows, with Obama's approval mired in the 30s. On the deficit, 67% of voters disapprove of Obama.

As bad as these numbers are, they are worse among America's working class voters. On every issue, Obama receives lower marks from those earning less than $50k and those who never attended college than the general population. A staggering 67% of those who didn't attend college disapprove of Obama's handling of the economy, for example. 69% disapprove of his handling of health care.

“WORKING CLASS VOTERS ABANDON OBAMA”

The word here kiddies is “working”. The lazy leeches called “non -working” masses will bootlick his King Klownie of Kenya and never abandon him.

Here's hoping the last time was the last time. I'm not completely ruling out that we will witness some kind of coup d'état.

Strange. Whenever they can fabricate some sort of specious evidence that the economy is other than flat on its back, they trumpet it for a day and then release a poll 24 hours later showing that Obama is sweeping America off its feet, so high is his popularity.

We’re now almost done with Day Three of Bird-Gall, and still no poll results from CNN about “How Do Americans Feel About Obama’s Terrorist For Terrorist Swap.”

I wonder what’s up with that.

Jobs shmobs. The important things is that no one needs to work if we get free stuff.

Big deal. Obama isnt running again. Maby of those same people who say theyve abandoned obama, will turn around and will vote for anyone with a “D” after their name. Who will in turn give us the same legislation, the same corruption, the same failed policies, etc

Obama has always intended to stick it to lower income voters like this.

He's taking away these people's income and giving it to those who do not work. This is exasperating in the extreme for those trying to keep their heads above water.

This also serves to cause the classes to fight among themselves so the dictator can be the arbiter. Classic socialism.

Still Rasmussen has Obama rising in job approval among likely voters (6/1-6/2) at 52% up from May’s 48%. Reuters at 38% approval among all voters is the lowest. It makes me distrust my senses.

“The word here kiddies is “working”’.

Don’t be too quick to ignore those with any, “class”.

But, yes, those who suck on the teat of the society have clearly, “embrac(ed) the suck” and will, assuredly, continue to vote for the liberal agenda with or without Obama

0Bamma has been quite efficient increasing the number of non-working folks, like to the tune of over 90,000,000... The working voters will become the minority at this rate, and everyone not working can thank 0Bamma for freeing them of the shackles of working slavery...

You could be right, but I would think “working class” would include people within the age group to be working.

A staggering 67% of those who didn't attend college disapprove of Obama's handling of the economy, for example. 69% disapprove of his handling of health care.

Understand that a significant proportion of this sample is black.

So that, either:

a. The non-black segment is virtually unanimous in its disapproval of Obama.

b. Or the blacks are starting to question The Won's policies.

c. Or both...

I don’t care if they abandon the son of a bitch or not. They put him in a position to do his damage. They deserve each other, let them keep him. That is the same as some guy shooting you and as you are dying starts bawling and screaming, “I’m sorry I shot you”. the damage has already been done.

As far as I am concerned, the ones originally with the son of a bitch can stay with him. they put him where he could do his damage and when they were the ones being damaged started crying and left.
