Skip to comments.Blacks, Hispanics, Youth abandoning Obama
Posted on 07/16/2013 10:28:26 PM PDT by 11th_VA
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."
And younger voters are feeling the pain of higher interest rates on college loans and don't like the National Security Agency spying scandal. "For young people, the failure to stop the rise of student loan rates and the NSA revelations weigh in heavily," said Zogby.
Despite the drop in support among key groups, Zogby said that the president still holds "considerable juice," and stands in the latest poll at an evenly split 49 percent approval-49 percent disapproval.
Will the Republicans....NAHHH!
Obama fell into the trap a lot of ‘RAT politicians fall into. They promise way too many freebies and can’t deliver. It’s too expensive.
These poll number doesn’t mean anything, they’ll still support him over anyone with an R 95-5.
Well THERE would be a constructive use of the George Zimmerman case: To pry Hispanics away from the Democrats.
1.) Either his racism is exposed by a DOJ prosecution
2.) or his “street cred” takes a hit due to him “caving” on Trayvon?
It seems like we see these ‘blacks, Hispanics, and young people are abandoning the Democrat party’ articles fairly regularly. Alas, when it comes time to vote, Hispanics, young people, and especially blacks still overwhelningly vote Democrat. Call me when they actually vote against the Democrats because until then I won’t believe it.
For blacks, said the pollster, “they thought he would be able to do so much more.”
But will they vote for the next Soros Sock Puppet in 2016?
Sucks to live in a country where the president really isnt a dictator and cannot, therefore, give away the store.
Obama is moving into the same league as Stalin and Hitler and if he’s not stopped, he will be their equal. IMO
He won’t “give away the store”-—he’ll hand out crumbs.
Not communist enough to suit them? Miles beyond incredible.
Every president since Reagan has been a puppet. Just yesterday a puppet to the New world Order named GHW Bush was kissing up to the latest puppet in the White House.
He still has his muslims...
If the Democrats believe they are losing black votes then I would expect them to get serious about promoting riots and race war. That may not be so successful now as it has been in the past as witness the wet firecrackers that were supposed to be blockbuster bombs in the big cities after the Zimmerman acquittal.
They may “support” him just as volubly but what is in prospect is that many will have more important things to do on voting day. I don’t believe it because the coercion to vote will be powerful and if they are registered to vote their votes will be counted whether or not they actually show up at the polls.
Like you, I yawn when I read these articles, because we all know when its time to vote again - they will all jump on the gravy train once again. Most of them only vote every 4 years for the president, so hopefully, we can take back the Senate in 2014. For most, they think that a president has all the power to do anything he wants. Its almost true with the current occupant of the WH - most want a dictator with total power and he comes as close to that as any president we’ve ever had.
Blame the schools on their lack of education in political science. They know how to put on condoms, have sex, make babies and have abortions, but are totally ignorant how our government works.
Indeed he will. We say as much. And with, hopefully, some force.
We also try to send some hits back here, don’t know how many goes (can only see their direct outlinks).
I expect that the DOJ is trying very hard to figure out how to eo a Civil Rights Charge but if they figure out that even a black federal jury with the required number of Spanish and black members will acquit then they will make a lot of noise and IRS will put him under permanent audit and DEA might raid his house or his parents’ house but they won’t double jeopardize him.
These idiot democrats trust governmentS and the media that have for 30 years been funding a hoax called “global warming”. they want more government and to give up more of our rights and freedom to government. democrats trust government . they are IDIOTS
Indeed he will. We say as much. And with, hopefully, some force.
Very good. Thanks for sharing.
“Indeed he will”-Meaning he’ll be like Hitler and Stalin or give us crumbs?
Thanks 11th_VA. But they’d vote for him again.
That he will try the Hitler/Stalin route.
There may be ways to get around it. Mark Levin may have the solution, but it’s going to take some determined work. We’re almost at land’s end, here.
Yeah, bad news for Obama is...just bad news for Obama. RINOs shouldn’t get too excited.
Well Hell, Obama arranged so kids can stay on their parents insurance till they’re twenty-six. But seriously, these slackers thought Obama was going to be giving them all checks in the mail for doing squat.
The Second Amendment is saving us right now.
As I said to the Dean of Students at PragerU the other day: America has become like jerusalem, and everyone wants it. Chiefly, the muslims. All the others are just catspaws for the ones who have been doing genocidal conquest for 1400 years.
Which means, of course, that we *must* beat back the enemy - and it is the enemy - in the rest of the civilized world.
Look at the verbiage describing why each group is annoyed with Obama and find each simply wanted him to be MORE of a big-government Marxist and deliver more of what they wanted for their respective interest group. So any delusions the GOP has of winning these groups over will dissipate quickly.
Super duper, but they’re over 8 months too late to anything about it.
America is about to give birth to the AIDS baby it conceived last November. Trayvon Obama will join it’s brother Mussolini Obama that was conceived in 2008 and born with passage of the fascist health care law.
I expect that they will then leak his hidden location so one of their proxies can kill him, followed by an investigation that concludes that race played no role in the crime.
No they aren’t.
Rubes self-identify. Too bad you didn’t pay enough attention to Obama or you would’ve known that he’s a serial, pathological liar. Maybe you thought he wouldn’t lie to you, just those hated white, Christian, conservative Republicans.
While I agree much of our problems relate back to the schools, to the blacks, hispanics and youth of today it is not important how our country and government works, as long as they keep getting their “free chit”, they will overwhelmingly support the demodummies.
It doesn’t matter. He will not be running again
The duping was effective
As long as the stupid and uninformed are allowed to vote, the socialists will always have their herd of cattle to keep them in power.
At first I was impressed that they realized Obama is what he is.
Then I read the article and realized it’s about “YOU HAVEN’T DONE ENOUGH FOR MEEEEEEEEE”
So screw ‘em.
You got what you voted for. A fraud, a liar, a wannabe dictator.
Problem is, we aren't shooting back.
This comes from zombie, but imagine if this was true!
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.
Democrats effed everything up. The Republican’s let them, and “We the people” walk around the pen clucking, and pecking at the grain on the ground the Master’s put out.
When was that promise made? Behind closed doors?
Obama isn’t running for re-election.
Clearly, hussein’s not sufficiently racist; they were looking for him to put all Whites in concentration camps, seize all their assets, and re-distribute the same to Black folks.
Whitey’s not face down in a mud puddle with a boot on his neck.
That’s why they’re disappointed.
And 100%-0% with 112% turnout in certain big city precincts.
Obama’s policies have hit Blacks the hardest. The real unemployment rate (not the bogus engineered number FedGov concocts) of the Black population has skyrocketed to new highs. The Blacks living in the democrat urban plantations are worse off due to Obama’s policies which are eliminating full time jobs. The FedGov lie of stating that those who have lost all hope of finding a job are no longer unemployed is a cheap and dishonest trick. Perhaps even the low information voters trapped in these democrat urban plantations may eventually come to realize the goals of Obama’s policies. Specifically to put as many Blacks on welfare as possible, keep them down on the democrat urban plantations, and make them as dependent as possible on the government for the very bread they put in their mouth. Blacks trapped in these cities are truly slaves of the State. Unfortunately many of these people have not figured it out yet because Obama tells them their conditions are bad because of all the crackers keeping them down. Which, of course is a steaming load of crap.
