Gallup Weekly Poll: Obama Down to 44%, Numbers Down Across the Board

Posted by on Jul 10, 2012 at 1:17 pm

His disapproval is up to 47% as well, troubling numbers for a guy who supposedly is coming off some big wins.

Worth noting are some demographics. He’s down four points in a week among those 18-29, the age group he’s most popular with, and teetering at only 51%. He’s under 50% in every other age category, down to 44% ages 50-64 and 41% for those 65 and older.

Need we remind anyone those groups vote more often than those 18 to 29.

Among whites he’s at 37%, so they’re essentially written off. Blacks he at 87%, but curiously, after much pandering to Hispanics, he’s crashed six points in a week to 52%.

Very interesting.

Democrats as a whole he’s lost four points (to 82%) and with independents he’s at a ghastly 39%.

Inexplicably, he’s at 7% among those identifying themselves as conservative Republicans. Can someone please identify this niche group of conservatives who actually approve of this stooge?

Oh, and remember back a week when he led Romney by 7? That’s gone entirely.

    yep Ben. In fact, I think this article may have been written by one

    “Blacks he at 87%”

    So why was this sentence dumbed down for Blacks? Huuummm???

    Clearly more of that subtle racism from Republicans going on here. Thankfully MSNBC told us to be on the lookout for such things…
