We are all crackers now

We are all crackers now

I posted last night about how Obama’s support among a core constituency, Jews in New York, has cracked.

Support for Obama also is cracking among blacks in North Carolina:

President Barack Obama is rapidly losing support among  African-American voters in North Carolina, a new poll out today from the Democratic-leaning Public Policy  Polling shows.

The poll finds that Mitt Romney would get 20  percent of the African-American vote if the election were held today, compared  with 76 percent for Obama….

Obama received 95 percent of the support from African-Americans in North  Carolina in the 2008 election, compared with just 5 percent for  Republican nominee John McCain.

In PPP’s May poll, Obama received 87 percent of the African-American vote to  Romney’s 11 percent.

But wait, there’s more crack.

Obama’s White Base Shows Cracks Compared With 2008

Gallup Daily tracking indicates Barack Obama is receiving less support in the 2012 presidential election from some of the white subgroups that gave him the strongest support in 2008. These include non-Hispanic white registered voters who are 18 to 29 years old, female postgrads, and the nonreligious, among others.

You know it’s bad when a Democratic President is having trouble with the female postgrads.

Obama finally has brought us together.

Comments

“The good news is, the American people generally agree with our vision. If you just put in front of them, issue after issue and you present the Democratic approach and the Republican approach, we win,” Obama told supporters.

Delusion is durable. Please, please, please, just maintain that crazy JUST a little longer…!!!!

    I think this commenter is a moby for leftists, similar” to “Pasadena Phil” in other blogs’ comments. Both constantly and consistently labor to channel the comments of others towards dissipation of thought and argument. And they posture as omniscient. One at least claims to be an attorney, but with all the time s/he spends commenting one wonders if the claim is true.

Attention Dear Leader and Axelgrease: Stay on message-it’s resonating with the voters!

I still maintain the most recent labor report..that showed an increase to 8.2% was the turning point for alot of voters that had been on the “wait and see” side of things. Add Obama’s “doing fine” comment from last week and here we are. Voters are recognizing that without a change in policy we will remain in economic limbo.
Today’s retail sales information suggests things indeed are not doing fine

Two more data points, two more disappointments: retail sales declined in May by 0.2%, in line with expectations, and unchanged from the April revision from 0.1% to -0.2%. Worse however were retail sales ex autos which had the biggest drop in 2 years, sliding by 0.4%, on expectations of an unchanged print. And so the retrenchment of the US consumer arrives.

That from our friends at Zerohedge:

And, as we’ve come to expect, what’s an Obama Campaign without flashing the Race Card: http://shine.yahoo.com/work-money/comes-politics-more-racist-think-185600847.html

Yawn.

“HYMIETOWWWWWWWWWWWWWN!”

Keeping my fingers crossed. My “hope” consists of more people coming over to the “Not Obama Again” camp.

“(Reminder, take nothing for granted.)”

That’s for sure, ’cause all corks haven’t been popped.

Racial cork: michelle stating over and over..’Don’t make me “not proud” again’

Game boy controller cork: ‘hey, this is fun, who else can I drone’.

Women vote cork: ‘Barbara, Whoopi, Joy and all you other foxy (note, I did NOT say Fox ladies) ladies, let’s have several Get Down Tonight (thanks KC) sing and dance parties, I’ll show you ALL my moves.

Israeli/Jewish cork: ‘I love you people, why when reelected January 20th, 2013 I’ll take my oath of office, in Jerusalem AND I promise not to invite Louis, Jesse, Malik, Van and Al’.

And now we see this as further indication of support falling away. Thats a big loss in a few days

As I posted three months ago, the fastest growing demographic in our area Tea Party group (eastern NC) is African Americans, and the trend continues. This predates Obama’s ‘historic’ lukewarm, sorta-kinda, in theory, not in action endorsement of same sex marriage.

Henry Hawkins | June 13, 2012 at 10:36 am

PS: I’d have to guess that many more NC blacks are not quite ready to join the Tea Party, but no longer support Obama and will stay home in November.

What will the October Surprise be? War with Iran? China? Obama’s not going to just go quietly.

And, “cracking” elsewhere in the world? Through Drudge to Spiegel Online International ( http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/pew-survey-shows-germans-disillusioned-by-the-us-and-president-obama-a-838537.html ) comes an article entitles “Germans Increasingly Disillusioned with Obama.”

Although it does cite various stats in support of the title, the next-to-last paragraph has more of an apologetic tone (the support for Barack isn’t as great because the hopes “were unrealistically high”).

Well, don’t say you’re going to run a sub-four minute mile if all you have ever run has been a plus-fifteen minute mile. Then, people won’t expect you to run the former and won’t be disappointed nor surprised when you run the latter. Or, to quote from the movie 48 Hours “It ain’t cool being no jive turkey!”

So Jewish people who traditionally have given massive support to left wing causes and democrats in general goes under reported…

And once Obama support from Jews in New York falls in a single poll its indication of a shift to the right… but some Irish left-wing Labor Party politician tries to slip in funding to erect a statue of Che Guevara in (another country) Galway, Ireland and its cause for indictment of Irish people as supporters of Radical Islamic Fundamentalism.
Gotcha!

As out host noted failure is not a race. Racial bloc voting only has universal appeal when the candidate is perceived as competent. When enough voters in the bloc see the candidate as incompetent the bloc starts to crumble.

While public employees have done OK many in the black middle class who work in the private sector have been hard hit by the down term and by Obama’s policies. I’m not sure how many of them will vote for Romney but I’d be surprised if Obama gets anywhere near the raw numbers he got in 2008.

CarsInDepth.com | June 13, 2012 at 11:35 am

This is the worst possible news for Obama’s reelection hopes. The demographic math is pretty clear. No Democrat, white or black, can be elected president of the United States without 90%+ of the black vote. That’s the only metric that really counts. Forget swing states and battleground states. Forget Reagan Democrats and soccer moms. It’s just a matter of how many blacks the Democrats can get out. If 20% of black voters nationally just stay home and don’t vote for anybody, that badly hampers any Democrat’s chance of winning a presidential election. The fact that 20% of blacks in NC were willing to publicly say that they’ll vote for Romney is a very bad omen for Obama.

The truth is that despite the race pimps and pandering, there are some deeply rooted conservative attitudes within the black community. Perhaps having a failing left wing president who is black is allowing conservative blacks to be a bit more open in their true political and financial ideology.

October Surprise: Obama, with an ego unable to accept being voted out of office, and in order to protect his historical legacy, announces he is unable to continue his campaign due to undisclosed (and nonexistent) medical issues.

    barbara in reply to Henry Hawkins. | June 13, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    How would that play out, Henry?

    October’s a little late to get a replacement (and depending on how late in October, the absentee ballots will have already been printed – and sent).

      Henry Hawkins in reply to barbara. | June 13, 2012 at 3:50 pm

      Well, I’m being facetious, underscoring Obama’s narcissism, but if his ego were so large as to take this step, I’m pretty sure he’d be indifferent to the damage done to his own party. He’s revealing that indifference every day, to the point that Bill Clinton, Cory Booker, Ed Rendell, James Carville, and others are starting to counter him in public.

      samsonva2000 in reply to barbara. | June 14, 2012 at 10:34 am

      Actually, not a problem, thanks to the genius of the Electoral College (one of the least-appreciated and most valuable institutions in the U.S. government). Obama could drop out any time he wants and ballots would not need to be changed. Since voters are actually voting for Presidential Electors and the EC doesn’t meet until December, they could cast their votes for Hillary and no harm done.

Obama’s unintended consequence: Uniting America… Against Him

Rasmussen poll has Romney up over Obama by three points in Wisconsin.

Mr. Independent … tear down this blue wall!!

Did anybody poll Julia?

huskers-for-palin | June 13, 2012 at 7:50 pm

They tried to poll Julia but her two-dimensional vocal cords won’t resonate in our 3D world. Go fig.

David R. Graham | June 14, 2012 at 1:28 am

I’ve been called a cracker all my life. Lets me glide above the innuendo of a certain usage of cracker, rather mirthfully in fact. Graham Flour is a fine, intelligent development by a fellow clansmen and cleric, and popular too.

So the world is polarizing into two groups …

… those that are called crackers …

… and those that wanna cracker?
