Polls Apart: Democrats Should Not Bank On Obama In November

This Congress has been under more scrutiny than any other Congress in modern history. That means that Representatives and Senators will not be able to hide their voting records behind rhetoic or spin without the general population being able to identify them as either ignorant or liars. A year ago, the Democrats didn't seem very worried about that. But they better be worried about it now. In fact, it is a wonder that many of the freshmen Dems who won seats from traditionally Republican districts are even bothering to run for re-election after the disaster they have created for themselves by following Barack Obama off of a cliff.

And even though the next Virginia Senate race isn't until 2012, Jim Webb is already beginning his campaign by sending out emails filled with lies about Tea Party supporters and insults towards the Republicans. Apparently Webb knows better than to highlight his own unpopular voting record. But people like me will be there to remind everyone of exactly what type of leftist Jim Webb is. Again, it is a wonder why he is even considering running for re-election since he cannot hide from his voting record which will clearly show how he has helped to run up a debt that our grand-children won't be able to pay and how he is in favor of more unwanted government intrusion into our lives. Warner will be gone two years behind Webb.

Writing for the Weekly Standard, Jonathan V. Last tells us why:

When the president took office in January 2009, Gallup measured his overall job approval at 67 percent, with 86 percent of blacks approving. Since then, blacks have shown an increasingly favorable opinion of him.


Using Gallup’s data, blacks push Obama’s overall number up by about 5 points; using Rasmussen’s by roughly 7 points.


The median congressional district has a black population of only 6.41 percent.

This uneven dispersal magnifies the disparity of approval between Obama’s base and the rest of the country. If relatively few congressional districts look like America, then in most congressional districts Obama’s job approval is likely to be lower—anywhere from 2 to 7 points lower—than the national average.

That will spell major difficulties for the Dems this November. They might want to seriously rethink that thunderous applause they gave when they shoved Nationalized Health Care down our throats.

Polls Apart: Why Imperiled Congressional Democrats Can Take No Solace From Obama’s Approval Ratings

If the Democrats are stupid, which they are, they will bank on Obama in November. Why? Because Obama represents the minorities, and the minorities vote for Democrats, right? Well, of course, but the black voter is not always a reliable voter, per se. Getting the black man to the polls is not a sure thing. Remember, Obama is black (or 50% black, 50% white), but Obama isn't on the ballot! Instead, it's a bunch of gay-loving, anti-Christian, anti-business, pro-abortion, anti-family Democrats, instead.

Obama is the boogie man. Now you see him, now you don't. What we really need to examine is whether Obama is the man he portrays to be. Ever notice you hardly ever see Michelle "I haven't always been proud to be an American" Obama with him. Why? May have to be that he's part Clintonian.
