    Electoral racism in its most egregious form is the unwillingness of whites to vote for blacks regardless of qualifications or ideology. So far, Barack Obama has been involved in two elections that suggest such racism is no longer operative. His reelection bid, however, may indicate that a more insidious form of racism has replaced it. The 2004 Illinois Senate race between Obama and Alan Keyes, two African Americans, was a unique test of old-fashioned electoral racism. For a truly committed racist, neither would have been acceptable. In 2008, the long primary battle between Hillary Clinton and Obama added hundreds of...

The drop in support among black voters mirrors the declining support for Obama among all groups.

    United States President Barack Obama enjoyed the support of an estimated 80% of U.S. Jews in the 2008 elections. However, recent polls indicate he will be receiving far less Jewish support in 2012. Polls taken before the GOP upset in New Yorkís 9th District showed that Obamaís treatment of Israel was a crucial issue for many voters in the heavily Jewish area Ė and only 22% were satisfied with the way he had been relating to Israel.

    [snip] Over his presidency so far, Obama's support among Jews has run about 14 percentage points higher than his support among the population at large, with some fluctuations largely due to the relatively small number of Jews in any given polling sample, Gallup reports. The gap in the most recent tally is 13 points. A similar point can be made about Latinos Ė another group whose declining support for Obama is sometimes attributed to group-specific issues, in this case the failure to bring about comprehensive changes in the nation's immigration policies. Again, as with Jews, the polling data show something...

    President Barack Obama's support among Jews has dropped, new data shows. Four out of 10 Jewish Americans currently disapprove of Obama, according to polling data provided to POLITICO by Gallup, which has yet to post the numbers on its website. This 40 percent disapproval rating is 8 percent higher than the 32 percent disapproval rating among Jewish Americans that was last reported by Gallup in June. Obama's approval rating among Jewish Americans is also down to 55 percent - a five point drop from his approval rating in June, which stood at 60 percent. Together, the rise in disapproval and...

    A new poll released Thursday morning shows President Obama's approval rating is dropping in Virginia -- a battleground state the Democrat took from Republicans en route to winning the White House in 2008. These new numbers show the presidentís disapproval rating has spiked in Virginia to 54 percent. The Quinnipiac University Poll is based on telephone interviews with 1,368 registered voters between September 7-12. The results mirror other polls that show a continuing slide in the presidentís popularity in a slow, troubled economy. Fifty-one percent of those surveyed say they do not think President Obama deserves to be re-elected. Thatís...

    CNN Poll: President gets no bounce from speech, but disapproval rating peaks mug.cnnpolitics By: CNN Political Unit Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama didn't score any political points with his speech on jobs to a joint session of Congress last Thursday.

    STAUNTON, Va. Ė Whether it is called General Lee Highway, as in Virginia, or Molly Pitcher Highway, as in Pennsylvania, the lives and economic strain along U.S. Route 11 tell of a countryís disappointment with Washington Ė specifically, with President Obama. The northĖsouth highway, created in 1926, extends more than 1,600 miles from New York to Louisiana. It is one of those blue lines you find on a gas-station road atlas, obscured by the bold red lines of the dominant interstates. Woodrow Wilsonís home is along this road in Virginia, James Buchananís in Pennsylvania. In between those presidential homes is...

    Black voters remain defiantly loyal to Obama, despite suffering from his mishandling of the economy and Maxine Waters' complaints about his focus on wooing white independent voters for his reelection. But of course, Democrats have long taken blacks for granted. This loyalty in the face of bad treatment is reminiscent of battered wife syndrome (BWS).

    PRINCETON, NJ -- President Obama's job approval rating averaged 46% for the week ending June 12, a significant decline from his weekly averages for most of May and nearly back to the level before Osama bin Laden's death on May 1. Among partisan groups, independents' approval rating of Obama dropped the most in the past week, from 47% to 42%, with a smaller decline among Democrats. Republicans' approval of Obama spiked to 21% during the first week after bin Laden's death from 10% in late April, before falling back to the 15% range, where it has held since. Obama's approval...

    Clear eyed observers recognize Barack Obama will not have an easy road to reelection. A steady stream of poor, and outright suspicious, decisions has become the hallmark of his administration. He stands exposed him as a man overmatched by the demands of his office. Obamaís well documented failings will provide ample material for whomever the GOP nominates. Nevertheless, the worst enemy of Obamaís reelection chances may be inexorably building without much notice. The worst calamity a candidate can face is being laughed at, but the second worst is being ignored. Evidence that the voting public may be ignoring Obama is...
