Gallup: Pres. Obama Experiencing White Flight

Sherry Mowery, My Cowboy suffers no longer... 2010/10/04 17:07:53




The good news for President Obama is his popular support among blacks is holding steady at 91%.

The bad news is no other group of potential voters likes him that much.

In fact, 29 days before his first midterm elections, the Democrat's approval ratings remain mired below 50%.

A new Gallup Poll this morning finds his approval rating for September was 45%, almost the same as August's 44%. Obama's not exceeded the crucial 50% level in a single month so far this year.

Since Obama's name is not on any ballot Nov. 2, the proportions of Americans who like or dislike the fellow on Oct. 1 of a midterm election year shouldn't matter, in theory. However, history indicates otherwise.

Presidents with approval ratings below 50% at midterm time see their party suffer substantial losses in its congressional membership, regardless of how much explaining and blaming the president attempts in the campaign leading up to what becomes, in effect, a referendum on the president.

And since Democrats currently hold substantial majorities in both the Senate and House of Representatives, they have substantially more seats to lose. A switch of 39 House and 10 Senate seats would give control of both houses to the Republicans for the first time since they lost it in 2007 after 12 years of GOP majorities.

Democrats (79%) and liberals (75%) still like Obama a lot.

But after that, his approval percentage goes to the deep south. Support among even young people is down: 57%. Hispanics: 55%. Moderates: 54%. Unmarrieds: 53%. Easterners: 52%. Women: 47%. Midwesterners and Westerners: 45%.

This is not about race. It is about fundamental principles and the way people are raised. I think that people are finally seeing what BO stand for and they don't like it, period. People are finally waking up to the fact that BO's "Change" entails directing this country towards something they do not want. The only people still supporting BO are the ones that will continue to receive freebies, handouts, entitlements, and bailouts; in other words, a free ride through life. The rest of us who believe on standing on your own two feet, making your own way, and working to support yourself do not like the change towards socialism and government dependence. This country was founded on the principles and ideas of free thinking individuals not the current generation of BO supporters.

    This was a great article! And so true. I grew up as a person who has black in my blood and NEVER blamed the white race for my failures. I failed because I was in the dark and I succeeded because I have faith. The problem with liberals are these : Most of them are pot heads, gays, orgie pigs, lustful vile women, bigomy men, uneducated, educated but clueless, and they work for one thing "darkness" and that name Democrat stands for what G-d warn us about Demonic force in the earth that sucks up the vitality in people. Look around you and you will see that"potheads" are drained, gays are ill, women are filthy, men are sexually sick. These are some the people who "marched" on Saturday including the freeloaders and they all work for the one thing G-d warned us for ----evilness.........don't like the truth.....pass me by because I don't give a rat ass saturday freeloaders work g-d warned ----evilness truth pass rat ass

    I would never support a politician because of skin color. Soon, everyone will see that Obama is not their friend. He is addicted to the idea of power, pure and simple. He wants to decide everything for everybody. And he makes bad decisions.

    Something very interesting is revealed in these numbers. Three quarters or more of the people who identify themselves as Democrats or liberals support Obama. 54% of Moderates support him. That implies that the total number of people who do not identify themselves as Democrats, liberals, or moderates is much, much greater than 50% of the people. It is hard to image that any such person would vote for a Democrat at all.

    Americans gave him a shot. That's even after Rev, Wright and Louis Farakhan. How many blacks would vote for a white man if David Duke backed him? American whites have moved so far beyond racism that they aren't even alarmed when someone is racist against whites. This is cleary about policy alone.

    Black folks are victims as much as anyone else. Obama knows what buttons to push. They feel turning against obama would be turning against their race. Obama cares nothing for these folks but he could use their votes. Remember he has also got white blood in his veins and you know how devious white people can be.

    Well the education in black communities is poor. So are the conditions they live in.. If I was black and not educated I would want someone to take care of me as well.. Think of the lip service the democratic party has given the black community of the years.
    What I don't understand is these neighborhoods are not any better so why do they keep voting them back.. Think Marion Berry.. The guy was on tape smoking crack with a hooker.

    It is about race. The black support base of Obama over any other race proves it.

    91% of blacks still favor BO? What are they thinking? Must be the percent who are waiting for him to pay their mortgage and their health care and buy them a car and increase their welfare payments. Forget about it! His power will be gone and you might have to get a 'job'.. 'job'''. ? That's when you work! Blacks blindly follow his lies and his incompetence just because of his color? Sad! BO has pushed race relations back 100 years and they can't see that? Gotta be the handouts that are steering their position. Wait until their welfare is gone because cities and states have no mo money..because BO and his policies have burdened the states in order to pay for his failed stimulus.
