Barack Obama is losing support in the African-American community over the issue of gay “marriage.” The proof of this is that here, in October, Obama’s team is busy shoring up support within their African American base.
On May 7, Obama “evolved” again and announced that he supported gay “marriage.” Immediately, he and his handlers recognized that selling out the loyalty of his black base for contributions from gay donors would be significant. Because they are irreligious (Democrats don’t understand people of faith), they didn’t know how significant.
They were caught completely by surprise when black ministers like Rev. William Owens demanded a White House meeting with Obama over the gay “marriage” issue. They were denied; and to a small but important percentage of the African-American community, this was an outrage and an insult.
Two polls done immediately after Obama’s reversal, one in North Carolina and one in Georgia, sent the shocking news that 20% of African-Americans were ready to vote for Mitt Romney! A late August poll done in Michigan revealed that 23% of black Michiganders are ready to vote for Romney. Of course, these polls were either attacked as outliers, ignored, or mocked by a sycophantic media. Nevertheless, evidently the Obama campaign has been listening very carefully to those who were saying he has a problem with sagging African-American support.
Now Obama’s minions are running around hitting black churches talking drivel about the KKK and the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Obama’s people are openly campaigning inside churches in violation of federal tax laws, but hey, they’re the Democrats; laws mean nothing to them.
Anyone who tries to say that Obama’s last-minute pandering to African-Americans is insignificant has no concept of the power of religion or how much trouble he is in with his base.
Immediately after Wednesday’s debate with Romney, a SURVEYUSA poll found that among African-Americans who watched it, Obama was naturally declared the winner. The importance of their response came in the fact that Obama only won African-Americans by 7 points: SEVEN POINTS? This is very important; don’t let anyone kid you on that.
