Since Friday, Barack Obama’s chances of re-election have dimmed considerably.
The recent hits “Hope and Change Part II” have taken are not small and will cause even “true believers” to take heed.
On Friday, Democracy Corps told Obama and his advisors they should stop telling people the economy is either getting better or has actually fully recovered as some wild eyed liars have been saying. In very strong language Stan Greenberg the DC pollster said even the weakest Republican message on the economy gets a markedly better response from voters than any variation of Obama’s “America is back” theme.
Yesterday a little reported Pew research survey revealed that Catholic voters are running away from Obama in large numbers. It noted that while Catholics in general had supported Democrats 53/37 in 2008 that advantage is now down to just 48/43, but more telling is that church going Catholics who favored John McCain 50/49 now disapprove of Obama 49/42.
Pew also pointed out that Obama’s support among Jewish voters is down to 65% which is below the 68% or more threshold Democrats MUST get to win election.
These numbers are important because they were compiled in December, BEFORE Obama’s war on the Catholic Church became widely understood. Now that America’s Catholic Bishops have drawn their line in the sand Obama’s “Catholic” numbers can only get worse.
A new USA Today/Gallup report now tells us that in the “must win swing states” voters reject Obamacare as something that is an unconstitutional law Obama should not have signed and should be repealed. By two to one people believe Obamacare will make their lives worse. Voters (including 56% of Democrats) think an individual mandate is a bad idea.
Yesterday another leg of Obama’s web of lies was kicked out by poll results from “The Hill” that proved his class warfare strategy is falling flat as well. It found 75% of likely voters believe top earners should pay LOWER not HIGHER taxes and a 30% or less tax rate for top earners was right. Just FOUR PERCENT agreed with Obama’s plan to make taxes on upper income earners higher.
Last but not least in the barrage of bad news for the Fraud in Chief is the fact that he is NOT raising money at a rate that will bring him remotely close to even the $750 million he had in 2008, let alone the touted ONE BILLION DOLLARS he is supposed to have this year.
