For Obama, Even the Good News Is Bad
John H. Fund
"Young People and Minorities Are All the President Has Left" is the arresting headline on the National Journal's new poll of Americans, conducted with the Pew Research Center.
The survey found that the president still retains support among voters under 30 who helped elect him in 2008, but even there his excellent or good job rating is only 45%, as opposed to 47% who rate him fair or poor. His worst numbers are with voters aged 50 to 64, only 34% of whom rate him positively.
Minority voters are still solidly behind the president, with 76% of blacks expressing approval. A majority of Hispanic voters also still approve. But among non-Hispanic whites, the bottom has dropped out. Only 30% score Mr. Obama positively, with 66% rating him fair or poor. Opinions among white voters vary with education but the news isn't good for Mr. Obama. White women who are college graduates give him a 39% positive job rating, while he wins 31% of white men with a similar educational background. White voters without a college degree have become the biggest headache for the Obama White House: only 31% of women who fit that description rate the president well and only 22% of men.
Those kinds of numbers explain the panic setting into Democratic ranks this fall. In this election cycle, a disproportionate number of key Senate and House races are taking place in areas with older voters and few minorities. Those also are the same areas where voters appear to be most dissatisfied with Democratic rule and most eager to send a message this November.
