Where Have All the Obama Supporters Gone?
According to a Gallup report released yesterday, since President Obama took office, his approval rating among whites has collapsed by 22 points (61% to 39%). Meanwhile, his approval rating has gone UP 1 point among blacks (from 90% to 91%) and fallen only 5 points among Hispanics (from 75% to 70%).
So clearly my thoughts from Nov. 17 are being confirmed: If you peel through some of the polls (which usually still have Obama above 50%), you can see that Obama has actually lost a ton of support among the "Silent Majority" this year.
