AP Poll: Obama Voters Giving Up Hope in Droves

“You voted for Obama to prove you’re not a racist. Now, who are you going to vote for to prove you’re not an idiot?”Commenter at NBC-11 (by way of Doug Ross)

Any businessperson will tell you that getting a lot of people to show up at your grand opening isn’t as nearly as difficult as enticing them back in subsequent months and years. True, politics isn’t comparable to the business world — it’s the antithesis in many ways — but they do have their occasional similarities:

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama’s winning coalition from 2008 has crumbled and his core backers are dispirited. It’s now Republicans who stand to benefit from an electorate that’s again craving change.

Nearly two years after putting Obama in the White House, one-quarter of those who voted for the Democrat are defecting to the GOP or considering voting against the party in power this fall. Just half of them say they definitely will show up Nov. 2, according to an Associated Press-Knowledge Networks poll released two weeks before Obama’s first midterm elections.

Remember though, this is not evidence of an abandonment of Hope, Change and Progress — it’s just that the Bush-induced economic downward spiral has caused in the frightened electorate an inability to think clearly. However, the above poll offers some evidence that the current Dem strategy of accusing departing Obama voters of being beaten-down incoherent wimps doesn’t seem to be reeling them back in. Go figure.

Early in 2009 Obama was already feeling the light breeze of what I called “The Peggy Effect,” and the breeze has become a tropical storm. Will that turn into a hurricane? If it does, Team Obama will blame global warming… and Bush of course.
