Barack Obama's unfavorable rating among white women skyrockets

Obama's losing support among white women.

Barack Obama's favorability ratings among white women has declined significantly in recent months, particularly among Democrats and independents, presenting an immediate obstacle for the likely Democratic nominee as he moves to shore up his party's base.

According to a new report by The Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, half of white women now have a negative perception of Obama.

Forty-nine percent of white women view Obama unfavorably, while only 43 percent hold a favorable opinion. In February, 36 percent of these women viewed Obama unfavorably, while 56 percent had a positive perception of the likely Democratic nominee.

Over the same period, Democratic white women's negative view of Obama increased from 21 percent to 35 percent, while their positive view decreased from 72 percent to 60 percent -- roughly the same rate as white women overall.


Maybe it's his association with terrorists and race baiters that are chasing women away. Or maybe it's his loud-mouthed, negative, America-hating wife. Maybe it's his hideous stance on foreign policy and national security. Maybe it's his many, many, many gaffes and misstatements. Maybe it's the fact that he's just an empty suit with no experience and nothing to say except to feebly bleat "HOPE!" and "CHANGE!". Honestly, it could be any of these reasons. They're certainly enough to make me want to run away screaming.

But hey, at least he's still got the black vote locked up, right?

The day after Hillary Clinton is finally, oficially eliminated from the race is the day McCain should name Sarah Palin as his VP candidate.

He's going to discover that having a majority of racists in your corner does carry weight with the public, just like cement shoes do.

But at least their not racist! On the other hand, when a majority of whites vote for Clinton, it's gotta be because their racist.

Hillary will be way TOO BUSY with her senate duties to do any campaigning. Scheduling conflicts, you know.

Oh please. You aren't that dumb, are you? Here's an exercise for you: Make two columns on a sheet of paper. Label one column "Reasons that Hillary will stump for Barry". Label the other column "Reasons that Hillary will have other things to do". Write applicable items in each column. Now cross out everything in the first column that sounds like she may be concerned with the 'good of the party' or the 'good of Barry' or the 'good of anyone, but Hillary'. Okay, you're almost done. Now turn your attention to the second column. Make sure that you've exhausted every reason that has to do with Hillary's self-interest.

Which column has more items?

Do you really think that she wants to wait until 2016 to be come the country's first woman president?

Stan25:

I do hope that Obama gets the Donk nomination and loses his ass in a 50 state landslide to McCain. That would prove to the American public what a cheap suit backbencher he really is. Of course the race warlords like Jessie Jackson, The Wrong Rev Jeremiah Wrong, Al Sharpton and a few others will crow to the rafters that the white racists in this country was keeping the black man down. They will be laughing up their sleeves and patting themselves on the back and bragging how they thwarted an uppity black man and put him back into his place.

OLDPUPPYMAX:

You bet he has the black vote locked up. And unlike those racist slimeballs who vote for Hillary, race has absolutely nothing to do with the 97% of blacks who support Barry Hussein. After carefully weighing the quality of his personal beliefs-which no one knows-and analyzing his political policy preferences-which no one has discussed-the folks in the hood have decided that he be the man! Just think how much better he might do when they find out he's black!

If Barack Hussein is the no... (Below threshold)
Ken:

If Barack Hussein is the nominee, he is going to lose more than just the white voters, but will end up losing the election in November, Mark my word!

It is time for all of the Democrats to realize that Hillary Clinton is the right person to beat McCain in November and return to the White House.

WAKE UP AMERICA! Let us ALL get behind Hillary Clinton and push her over the finish line!
