National Journal has a report on the latest Pew Research Center national poll which is said to underscore "how slender a beachhead Pres. Obama has established among whites more than two years into his presidency."
In the new Pew survey,Obama's overall approval rating among all whites is 38 percent.
- 56 pct among white "well educated" women
- 41 pct among whites under 30
- 40 pct among among whites aged 30-49
- 38 pct of white college-educated men
- 38 pct among white seniors
- 35 pct among white men without a college education
- 35 pct among whites aged 50-64
- 34 pct among "so-called waitress moms" - white women without college educations
This comment from 'Theodosius West 'offers two possibilities --
Option A, in a moment of temporary insanity, whites dropped their racism in 2008 and voted for Obama, only to have rediscovered it now.
Or, Option B, two years of bumbling incompetence by a leftwing president who is out of his depth has allowed the scales to fall from the eyes of those whites who were duped last time around but won't be fooled again.
You make the call.
I heard that Obama's support in the black community has fallen from 99.999 to 85 pct, but I've heard nothing about the Jewish voters. We have yet to see if they are smart... or "college educated." Only time will tell, and I'm not sure how much time we have left.
