Obama underwater in Florida, losing ground nationally with minority voters

posted at 2:55 pm on April 7, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

Two polls out today produced some bad numbers for Barack Obama, although Gallup’s news may be overrated.  They report a decline in support for Obama across all ethnic groups, with the slippage among blacks and Hispanics the big headline.  Relatively speaking, though, it’s hardly an opening for the GOP:

Though majorities of blacks (85%) and Hispanics (54%) continue to approve of the job Barack Obama is doing as president, his ratings among these groups slipped in March and have set or tied new lows. His approval rating among whites, at 39%, remains above where it was in the latter part of 2010. …

Obama, elected to office with strong support from minority voters, has averaged better than 90% approval among blacks, and 65% among Hispanics, during his term. Prior to March, Obama’s lowest monthly average among blacks was 88% in July 2010 and December 2010. The president’s 54% March job approval rating among Hispanics ties the low from July and August 2010.

Actually, the headline could just as easily have been written “Obama Support Steady Among Whites and Hispanics.”  Those numbers are about the same as they have been for the last several months.  In fact, there has been a little uptick of late for Obama among whites, although it’s within the margin of error.  The drop in support among black voters is only slightly larger than the MOE, and at 85%, it’s gone from Ridiculously Lock-Step to Incredibly Loyal.  Obama has lost 19 points among Hispanics, which will certainly worry Democrats rolling into 2012, but all of that damage happened before the midterms.

Today’s poll from Quinnipiac is more worrisome for the President, and encouraging for his opponents:

President Barack Obama hits a losing trifecta with Florida voters: They disapprove 52 – 44 percent of the job he is doing; they prefer an unnamed Republican challenger by a too-close-to- call 41 – 38 percent in the 2012 presidential election and say 51 – 42 percent that the president does not deserve a second term, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

Today’s numbers compare to results of a February 3 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University, when the President was almost dead even in the trifecta:

  • 47 percent job approval, with 49 percent disapproving;
  • 40 percent for Obama, compared to 42 percent for an unnamed GOP challenger;
  • 45 percent saying four more years compared to 48 percent saying no.

This applies only to Florida, of course, but it’s a state Obama needs to win in 2012. With these numbers, that’s looking less and less likely.  The drop here has been much more precipitous than in Gallup’s national survey, reflecting Obama’s recent performance more than the period before the midterms.

Interestingly, this may hinge on energy rather than entitlement reform.  Floridians have traditionally opposed offshore drilling, but rising fuel prices have had their impact.  The Q-poll shows 60/35 support for increasing offshore drilling, with independents supporting the policy 58/38 — and Democrats more narrowly opposed at 43/52.  In his favor, ObamaCare isn’t underwater in Florida, with 49/41 plurality support [see update below], but that’s perhaps more of an indication of a lower voter priority — since more support ObamaCare than Obama himself.

Update: Scratch the point in Obama’s favor.  As reader Damian G points out, I misread the Quinnipiac report; respondents support repeal of ObamaCare 49/41.

MeatHeadinCA on April 7, 2011 at 3:02 PM

Obama at 85 percent support among African-American voters isn’t a problem for him. Obama at 54 percent among Hispanic voters is, since any Republican potentially getting 46 or so percent of the Hispanic vote in 2012 would win the overall election in a landslide (and the number is even worse if the Hispanic support for Obama is concentrated in states like California and New York, where he doesn’t need huge Hispanic support numbers to win).

This doesn’t mean that Republicans are becoming more popular, only that Obama is becoming less popular. If the Rep’s don’t run someone really good this next election, all these people are still going to vote for Obama anyway, or vote for someone more liberal/socialist than he is.

Lawrence on April 7, 2011 at 3:07 PM

If you think Obama will get less than 95% support from blacks, you’re dreaming.

As far as Hispanics go, somewhere around July 2012, Reid will propose yet another amnesty bill. It will fail of course. Yet Obama will spend all of August and September telling Hispanics how racist those Republicans are. Along with that, the MSM will have umpteen stories on how 17 year old Juan Sanchez, 4.0 GPA, star high school athlete and volunteer at the Children’s Cancer Ward will be deported if this bill doesn’t pass.

And Hispanics will come running back to Obama.

Most Dems live in NYC, SF, Seattle, Boston, DC and don’t drive much. $5 or $10 a gallon doesn’t affect them.

It isn’t enough that they “support” Obama, they’ve got to get up and go vote for Obama. In 2008, they did. In record numbers. In 2012, they might still like the idea of a black president — racial pride being what it is in some circles — but they now know that it won’t make their lives better, has, in fact, made most of their lives worse. Their motivation to get out and vote just won’t be there, and Barry and his team know it. They’re concerned. Very concerned.

I get what you’re saying. That is a GOTV issue, not a “losing ground with voters” issue, as this post by Ed says.

I think – and I purely speculating – that most black people would still be happier with Obama as prez with no significant improvement int their lives vs. an evil white Republican and improvement in their lives. Watch 10 minutes of BET or TV1 or a a black guest on Tavis Smiley to see what I mean.

It’s almost like saying if Obama isn’t re-elected black people have failed. I honestly think the majority of blacks would accept a worse standing personally with a 2nd Obama term than accept the idea that a black president failed to get re-elected.

And because of that I think the voting patterns in 2012 will be similar to 2008 for blacks. Now for white liberals who peed their pants at the prospect of electing the FIRST black prez, it will be a different story. It’s a lot cooler to elect a FIRST someone. It’s nowhere near as much fun to RE-elect that first someone. If anywhere, I think that will be Obama’s big challenge, getting those voters excited again.

In Florida, the “hispanics”(which only means you come from a culture that predominately speaks the european language called Spanish) are very much different than in Arizona, California or Texas. They are mostly former Cubans and their decendants, ALL here legally because they are legal poltical exiles from a Communist country, not border jumpers. They do not care about illegal immigrants issues.
The same thing with Puerto Ricans who are hispanic but all citizen of the USA from birth…illegal immigration is not something that need or want to support.

I was talking with a 70-year-old Korean liquor-store owner in L.A. the other day.

We started talking a bit and he asked how the Gulf was doing with the oil. I explained that Obama had created a carpet of oil on the Gulf floor by backing the spraying of too much Cor-ex-it dispersant on the spill because he didn’t want Americans to see black beaches on the news. (Kermit will argue this but I stand by it.) And then I asked him what he thought of the high gas prices, and explained how 0bama had shut off drilling in the Gulf.

Old man shook his head and said, “Stupid 0bama!”

Made my day :-D

30% unemployment for blacks under 30.
record food stamp use for blacks.
record home foreclosures for blacks.
30% teen pregnancy for blacks.
57% single parent households for blacks.
In Detroit, record low home prices.
Black on black crime increasing.

While 97% of blacks supported Obowma in the 2008 election, the above facts are what was achieved in the black community.

Hope and change?
