No wonder he's become such good pals with Al Sharpton.
President Obama's approval ratings among black voters plummeted last month to their lowest levels ever, while his support among Hispanics took a tumble in the same period, according to a surprising new poll released yesterday.
Blacks continue to back him by a wide margin, with 85 percent of respondents saying they approved of him in the latest Gallup poll.
But that number dropped a hefty 5 percentage points from last month, marking the lowest rating among that core constituency that he's had since taking office.
He also dropped 5 points among Hispanics, sliding from 59 percent to 54, according to the poll. That number ties his July and August 2010 lows.
The one-two punch among two groups that helped usher him into the White House comes just after he announced the kickoff of his 2012 election campaign.

Fortunately, there seems to be at least a slight diminishment in this sort of disgusting racism.
Inflation is the one piece of news that the administrations allies in the media cannot conceal. The daily news from the supermarket cash register speaks, and the gas station is more eloquent than anything that the New York Times can print.
It's not skin color, it's overall appearance. If one black person wears a nice suit and tie and has a clean appearance, then that's a lot different than a ghetto thug with his pants on the ground. But I would have the same reaction if both persons were white.
Which explains his buttkissing of alsharpton.
Blacks will not vote for the republican but they will stay home.
He has much to fear and kissing that race hustler will impress no one.
so he runs to the Race Pimp Al to get his street creds back.
This is gonna be the Us Against Whitey election. Gonna be real ugly.
Any GOPer want to know what the reelect the mesiah campaign will look like then look back to the elect Rahm syrup fest that Axelrod ran. Tiny Dancer did not even speak in his own commercials, lest he sound harsh and drive away the “nice” white woman vote. Plenty of pleasant looking and sounding “diversity” and other goo goo meant to appeal to the vanity of Suzy Soccer Mom. FTR blacks haven’t been as sidelined in an election since the Strom Thurmond era as they were in Chicago’s mayoral fiasco 2011.
The problem we went from the original Civil Rights Movement, that emphasized that skin color didn’t matter, but it was character that mattered. Then we threw out the character part, and the movement was about saying that belief and value systems didn’t matter.
Ruh Roh! G-d willing, let this be a real trend. HIS union buddies don’t want black kids to get a better education. His far left loons are genociding black babies through their abortion clinics. HE flaunts his wealth and his extravagance while most of them don’t have jobs. Many have probably lost homes they couldn’t ever afford after he promised them it wouldn’t happen. Can’t drive anywhere. And ze bam, he don’t give one good damn.
In 2008, blacks looked at the back of Obama's hand, and 95% of them said, "I'll vote for that guy." And a lot of whites looked at the back of his hand and said, "If I don't vote for him, it means I'm a racist, which yeah, I kind of am, but I don't want to admit that, so I'll vote for him."
Republicans, on the other hand, have been pretty consistent at saying, "I don't care what the candidate looks like -- tell me his ideas. Tell me what kind of person he is."
How’s that free gas and mortgage workin for ya?
This is the article by Ronald Brownstein in the The National Journal.
I was amazed at the comments from the readers of this far-left rag. These guys are really down and disillusioned with the anointed one. Most of the discussion is about who is really the racist.
Got a chuckle from one guy calling himself General Bullright:
“I didn’t used to be a racist, but Obama made me that way! I voted for him, but now, I think he should be shining shoes down at the barber shop!”
“Blacks continue to back him by a wide margin, with 85 percent of respondents saying they approved of him”
Black respondents. What don’t you believe?
Obama’s biggest liability is that he appears ineffective in every area of being president.
This is where an older, more seasoned man could rise to defeat him in a landslide.
Even if they disapprove of him, at best that means he will only get 96.3% of the black vote instead of 96.5%
>This is gonna be the Us Against Whitey election. Gonna be real ugly.
Nah. The worse was back in 08 with the black panther “intimidate the election booth” stuff but now that the homeboys did not get their Escalades, they’re smarting from it. Most of the black dudes I know of here in L.A. still drink the O Kool Aid. Either way, they’ll still vote black..even IF the politician is a child-molesting, murderer, the homeys still vote the same color.
Support for Obama among Blacks is down to 85%, which is 11 points below the 96% who voted for him. If this trend continues into the 2012 election, the Black vote totals in St. Louis, Philadelphia, Camden, and other inner cities might actually fall below 115% of the eligible voters.
Exactly. They will be there for him when it counts. The most racist people in America are liberal Black people, followed closely by liberal White people.
85% supported Obama, 2% supported the generic Republican, and the other 13% said “Obama ain’t payin’ fo’ my gas an’ food enuff.”
Sadly, inflation is probably the only thing that will even dent his support that much. And then it’s more of a case of “you need to give me more” instead of “you’re running the country into the ground by being a socialist, you moron.” The corrosive effects of over 60 years (and counting) of professional victimhood education are very, very hard to overcome. When you have brilliant black men like Clarence Thomas and Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell dismissed as “uncle Toms” and a total cipher like The Won held up as a role model (along with rappers and pro athletes)...that’s just sad.
They were certainly willing to lie outright as a Party and paint the entire TEA Party as vile all-white racists last year.
It didn’t work, but when has that ever stopped them from repeated use of one of their biggest trumpcards?
2010 was just the beginning of ugly.
2011 will be the summer of the unions unrest.
2012 Election year..., all bets are off.
My guess is he will lose the greatest level of support when the 2008 liberal white guilt voters realize they bought the liberal lie and vote accordingly in 12.
-——85 percent of respondents saying they approved of him -——
That is bad news indeed. Years ago I studied the subject and calculated that around 88% black Rat voters was the tipping point. Below 88 % Rats lose the advantage.
The question for the day is, What trumps race? What precipitates the slide? second, who slid?
I do know a handful of folks who voted for him, who now openly refer to him in terms that would get me zotted in nano-seconds here.
This is gonna be the Us Against Whitey election. Gonna be real ugly.
It will be ugly. It will be on us to resist the provocations of these cynics too, and not rise to the bait.
We laugh because it is funny and we laugh because it is true.
Obama has made it very clear with whom he is more comfortable with. Surrounded by progressive activists and top adviser Valerie Jarrett and of course his tacky “beer Summit” did little to quell his racism. This president is far from being a fair man or an honest man....he loves the hi-life however!
