In Washington Post-ABC polling, Obama’s approval rating among white voters dropped from better than 60 percent to just above 40 percent. In a June poll, 46 percent of white voters under age 40 approved of Obama, compared with 39 percent of whites 65 and older.
One senior strategist noted that white voters made up 79 percent of the 2006 midterm electorate, while they made up 74 percent of the 2008 vote. If the white percentage returns to its 2006 level, that means there will be 3 million more white voters than if it stayed at its 2008 levels. That scenario, said the source, “would generate massive losses’’ for House and Senate Democrats in November because of Obama’s standing with that demographic
I'm shocked! Shocked I tell you! Not.
Why is President Obama losing the support of white voters you ask? Because the white male dominated media wanted President Obama to fail. Rush, Sean, Bill, Matt, and Andrew are the defacto leaders of the gop gave the marching orders and the gop fell in line lockstep.
Obama's numbers would be better if Republicans did not continually block his agenda for the sake of politics,
Psst President Obama! Americans like winners not wimps. Who ever is advising you is advising you wrong. You need to act like former DNC chair Dr. Howard Dean and confront the right wing bullies head on. This is what I'm talking about.
Attention netroots Dr. Dean has just shown us all and without a doubt what every single Democratic operative pundit or anyone who considers themselves a "progressive" needs to do about Fox News America’s Radio Rwanda and their Republican masters on the subject of race. Do not equivocate do not try to draw parallels call a sewer the shitty smelling place it is.
And just in case you need some more gonads,I mean incentive, proud, liberal Senator Al Franken (D. MN) tells us exactly what is at stake if the cowardly dems let the racist gop regain control of congress in the mid term elections.
(D-NV) shouldn't be underestimated.
Franken credited conservatives for being motivated to reverse the gains progressives have made over the past five years, pointing out that corporations have pledged $200 million during this election cycle and "one oilman, one guy, gave Karl Rove $1 million for attack ads." He warned participants that, in addition to all of that, the Citizens United decision -- the very mention of which earned boos from the crowd -- means that "corporations now spend unlimited amounts of money... can now spend unlimited sums of money directly attacking candidates who try to stand up to them."
We don't know what we don't know about the accomplishments of the Obama administration because the media is too busy enabling the obstructing obstructors.
Psst President Obama! The White male dominated media wants you to fail. You need to get control of the message
