No silver lining for Obama in slew of recent polls (A total, comprehensive disaster)
American Thinker ^ | 06/14/2012 | Rick Moran

If it gets any worse, they might call for a suicide watch on David Axelrod.

Here's a thumbnail summary of some polls out recently. Gallup:

"The 46% of registered voters supporting Obama today is five percentage points below the 51% supporting him in final weeks of the 2008 election campaign. Similarly, whites' support for Obama is six points lower than it was in October/November 2008 (38% vs. 44%), and blacks' is down four points (87% vs. 91%). At the same time, Hispanics' support, at 67%, is essentially unchanged.

Whites make up about three-quarters of all U.S. registered voters, and are therefore the most important racial or ethnic group in any election, at least mathematically. Even if Obama were to regain his 2008 level of support among blacks and improve his support somewhat among Hispanics, he could still lose if his support among whites slips any further. By the same token, even a slight increase in whites' support could secure his re-election."

Reuters:

"President Barack Obama's approval ratings have dipped to their lowest level since January on deep economic worries, wiping out most of his lead in the White House race over Republican rival Mitt Romney, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed on Tuesday.

The percentage of Americans who approve of Obama's job performance dropped from 50 a month ago to 47, matching his mark in early January. The number who think the country is on the wrong track rose 6 percentage points in a month to 63 percent.

The doubts about Obama's leadership helped Romney pull to within 1 point of the Democratic president in the White House race - 45 percent to 44 percent - among registered voters with less than five months to go before the November 6 election. Obama led by 7 points a month ago."

I think the Clinton ambition is still there.

She’ll portray herself as the “female Reagan” and also tout her “co-Pres” ole BJ hisself to share the burden.

Doubt she’ll win though.

I'll just tell you what that PDSers often told me....she's not running.

I find that very hard to believe. Blacks didn't vote for him because they liked his policies; similarly, they won't vote against him because they dislike his policies,.

The poll results are likely to manifest themselves as another 95/5 margin for Obama among blacks...but only 75% of 2008's turnout.

But...it could be worse. Obama has done exactly nothing for the blacks. In fact, he's done far more for gays than for blacks. Their loyalty hasn't been rewarded in the slightest. And it's starting to dawn on many...

Why, thank you. If they (RNC/RINO-GOP) don’t have the stones to do it, then the Tea Party and Conservative PACS MUST, independently, at once!! All through the “Summer of Recovery”, and especially during the DNC Convention. Really go on offense and make them whine to the full moon in political pain. No mercy.

This will be a difficult nut to crack but we must do it and we must take the long term view and do it in two distinct stages.

Step One: I don't care who anyone supports here (and I am not too happy about the way the cards have been dealt), but OBAMA MUST BE DEFEATED SOUNDLY IN NOVEMBER.

Step Two: Then, the RINO whom has been elected must be handcuffed politically, immediately, by the Conservative Wing of the GOP and the Tea Party in alliance, along with independent conservatives, so he will not go John McCain on us and the nation, and sell out to the remaining Democrats in Senate and House who miraculously somehow retained their seats. A very strong, Reaganesque internal GOP foe to him must be fielded in 2016 in the primaries, if it seems midway in his term that he has in fact gone centrist RINO on us rather than reverse course for the Republic back to Constitutional Conservatism.

I am always amazed at the 47 percent who still approve

Don't be amazed. Be afraid. The statists are bent on increasing its dependents, in a perversion of the usual tendencies.

Well I don’t think the loss will be that bad, 30% will vote for a party candidate no matter how bad they are, but that’s a nice dream.
