Skip to comments.A Polling Free-Fall Among Blacks (Blanco Sabotage of a whole race against Gop)

A Polling Free-Fall Among Blacks In what may turn out to be one of the biggest free-falls in the history of presidential polling, President Bush's job-approval rating among African Americans has dropped to 2 percent, according to a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll. The drop among blacks drove Bush's overall job approval ratings to an all-time low of 39 percent in this poll. By comparison, 45 percent of whites and 36 percent of Hispanics approve of the job Bush is doing.

Blanco blocked aid from the red cross and salvation army and then came out screaming blaming the feds.
Blacks see those pictures and the blacks starving and blame Bush. But in truth it was Blanco who blocked food and water to the people at the convention center. She wanted people out of there and felt food and water would keep them there. So she let them go hungry.
You had a democrat governor in her actions turn a whole race against a national party.
Bush needed to come out screaming telling the american people that it was Blanco that ordered the red cross and salvation army not to come in. The white house communications office is a joke.
Blacks are against the dems on gay marraige. Bush has hired many african americans to his cabinet. Bush has even appointed supreme court justices that will uphold affirmative action. Blacks are more in favor of some business policies with the gop than the dems.
All the work the Gop did to persuade blacks thrown out by a fat ugly democrat governor.
Blanco had to have a lot of MSM help. It's slander.
Does this mean that the hapless LA GOP will be too afraid to offer a candidate against Blanco in 2007?
Get used to this BS. We will have polls on everything about Bush and the GOP. The feeding frenzy of the MSM will go on and on until they overplay their hands just like all leftists eventually do.
The MSM (including FauxNEWS) did a bang up job here...
I don't know what's worse... the blantant lies spewed from the the MSM, or the SHEEPLE that actually fall for it...
Now I know why Blanco blocked Jeb Bush's offer of Florida National Guard days before the hurricane.
When the American people believe the President is responsible for everything you have a situation like this.
Either change the laws and allow the President to be able to make the decisions if he is going to take the heat or expect more of this.
There is a disconnect between the American people and understanding of our laws. Bush had very little power in Louisiana. The commander and chief of that state is Blanco.
If the laws are going to stay the same then the President should be called commander and chief of ourseas troops. Because people believe that he is the commander and chief on the ground in Louisiana when it is really Blanco.
Federal troops couldn't go into New Orleans. How can you send in troops where there is violence when they have no law enforcement power. They become sitting ducks.
it wouldn't have been so bad if he hadn't blew up the levee
It's scary but so is the fact the only notable defense of the President came from a liberal republican, Peter King of NY.
This is the only way dems win elections, and they know it.
Guess it didn't pay to pander to that community and allow illegals to take over this country.
Fine..Let Blanco take care of them. Feed and clothe them.
Provide shelter for them. Not one thin dime of Federal money for them, that would kiss the asses of their DemoKlan slavemasters and their porch StepnFetchits like
Dirty Jessie, Nagin, Maxine Waters and the rest, and
call the people who've done most of the law passing
and saving of their asses szince before the Civil War
the "bad" ones...talk about biting the hands that feed you, and licking the boots of your abusers...
What a load of crap! They *deserve* the crap that they are
gonna get, while Blanco and Landrieu and alll the frest of their criminal racist cabal get fat off of all the money they steal, that should have been going to help *them*
(black americans)...Seems like they, (the Dims) *did*
learn something from Saddam..Never steal anything small.
I am thouroughly disgusted
The blacks that support the President are not going to leave him because of the BS in New Orleans. They are not the kind that fall for the race baiting, lying, and other crap being spewed by Calypso Louie, Nagin, and Blanco. They are the ones who have risen above the level of the plantation and aren't going to look back.
I trust the real 'poll' done by black evacuees in Houston by I think some ABC reporter. Black after black NO evacuee blamed Blanco and Nagin.
Bad assumptions made even easier by the Repubs who just do not want to fight the Dems on their turf. . .He knew they would go there; grab their soundbite and run. . .
That would be President Bush; when he accepted 'responsibility' for the Louisana generated fiasco. . .
Sadly, this type of politics will continue as long as Democrats remain a vital political party. There is no low that is low enough for them anymore. Nothing short of God or death will stop them.
Remembering that interview, and seeing the source as the Washington Post, motivated me to read the article...which states This latest poll included 807 people nationwide, and only 89 blacks.
Laughable statistically. Unfortunately, the MSM will probably be "discussing" the issue very seriously. Makes me wonder what "internal" data the liberal media has been collecting which shows an increased number of black individuals moving towards Conservative candidates....also interesting how this "poll" appears shortly after speculation last week about the "black" vote if Rice becomes the Republican Presidential candidate in 2008....
And they say Cristians are "easily led." Pikers compared to the blacks in the US.
Think about it. If you are inclined to believe that Bush blew up the levees, and if you believe that Bush (and not Blanco) withheld help from Louisiana, you weren't going to vote Republican anyway.
People who vote Republican, white, black, or indifferent, do so against all odds, they do so in spite of the Washington Post and the dominant media. This has always been true and it is still true.
I would say that it is Blanco who will lose her job next term, although she will probably lose it to another Democrat. Her days as a politician are numbered. Nagin will not be reelected.
And the folks who rioted in the streets after the hurricane weren't the kind to reliably turn up at the polls for anyone, but if they do vote, they'll likely be voting in Texas next time.
If they believe conspirazoid crap, they are hopeless.
That bears repeating.
When ABC did their interviews after Bushs NO speach, all the blacks said it was the govs and moyors fault. This is a BS poll.
Pathetic. I think the RNC has much better things to do with its time. Will they wake up and smell the coffee?
It's about the BASE, guys!
I could care less. Blacks have rendered themselves politically irrelevant by voting 90% Dem every time. We can win without them and have for the last decade. I don't care if 0% of them like the President.
Let'em keep voting Democratic, they have and will continue to reap what they have voted. They deserve what they get. Soon only crooks, gays, Nambla, wacko enviros, PETA, Commies, and blacks will be the Dem. Party. Almost there now.
So what? Blacks don't vote Republican anyway...and the ones that do are smart enuff not to fall for this crap
A good percentage of blacks have not gotten over their slave mentality. So be it.
This thread needs your attention.
Blanco, Nagin, Landrieu, and all those Democrat scumbags kept those people in New Orleans as long as they could. They knew if those people left--their voting base--many would never return.
We have been subjected to weeks of non-stop news coverage accusing Bush of being at fault for the disaster in Louisiana. Amazingly, we don't believe it, because we don't believe everything the news media tells us.
So why would be believe the news media when it cites a poll claiming that Louisianans of whatever stripe also believe Bush to be at fault?
First, if it were true, it wouldn't be surprising, since the media have been claiming it to be so non-stop; but secondly, if everything else they say is distorted or flatly false, why would we accept this poll as legitimate?
Again, the people of whatever stripe who really believe that Bush is out to get Louisiana, are Democrats and will likely be until the day they die. They aren't going to vote Republican, and never would have. This may include the people in the 9th Ward, but it also includes most academics. Most of the people who believe Bush blew up the levees are academics. If the poll had separated them out as a group, the percentage would have been 98%.
But how many blacks supported bush BEFORE Katrina?
There is a percentage of people that will believe whatever the MSM reports.
The MSM/Socialists complex needs those believers in order to maintain it's critical mass.
Look for the lies to get more outrageous and shrill as they continue to lose ground.
I remember in 2000 they were running those "it was like Bush murdered my daddy all over again" commercials because he vetoed some hate crimes legislation (even though the murderer in the case got the death penalty and Texas already had a hate crimes law). I was in a store and decent enough young white guy was talking to decent enough young black guy. Young black guy says he will never vote for George Bush because george Bush vetoed hate crimes legislation. The dem approach on this works.
By the way I ultimately blame the republicans. They sit around while dems accuse them of horrible things and say "tut tut" and are sure people will understand.
It's really a shame because George Bush has avoided anything smacking of racism his whole life. Witness for example his quick abandonments of Trent Lott and Bill Bennett. This is the reward he gets.
Blacks in New Orleans blamed the governor, this is national. Maybe blacks hate Blanco too, but who cares? Her ststus will not affect national elections.
A lie is halfway around the world before the truth catches up but it does.
What a nice post. It's a shame that many on here have only negative or crude remarks in their comments.
I sometimes think civility and concern for all CITIZENS is never going to happen.
What I think is heart breaking is some of these remarks won't help those who need truths about what we as a nation should be trying to do. Not just for a certain group. But for all our families.
Agree with your assessment of President Bush. . .an honorable and humble man. . .and while there is genuine strength in being a statesman; a gentleman. . .when you have real enemies; you have to find a way to effectively 'deal' with them. Do not think he really goes there. ..
. . ..not the way many of us would like him to, for sure.
As for the Fed.Gov lack of response. . .yes, it was the Fed.Gov. problem; but thought according to every Demrat; that was the Louisiana fiasco ;^) . . .
