Quotes of the day

The new Quinnipiac University and ABC/Washington Post national surveys out this week converge on one key conclusion: as the election nears, President Obama is sinking to historic lows among the group most consistently hostile to him.

Throughout his career on the national stage, Obama has struggled among white men without a college education. But in these latest surveys, he has fallen to a level of support among them lower than any Democratic nominee has attracted in any election since 1980, according to an upcoming National Journal analysis of exit polls from presidential elections.

Though pollsters at each organization caution that the margins of error are substantial when looking at subgroups such as this, each poll shows erosion within that margin of error for Obama with these working-class white men. The new Quinnipiac poll shows Obama attracting just 29 percent of non-college white men, down from 32 percent in their most recent national survey in April, according to figures provided by Douglas Schwartz, April Radocchio and Ralph Hansen of Quinnipiac. The ABC/Washington Post survey found Obama drawing just 28 percent of non-college white men, down from 34 percent in their May survey, according to figures provided by ABC Pollster Gary Langer. Romney drew 56 percent of the non-college white men in Quinnipiac and 65 percent in the ABC/Washington Post survey.

***

Digging into the crosstabs of our ABC/Washington Post poll it’s clear that Obama has a significant problem with independent voters. On every measure, independents are significantly more disappointed with the president and more open to a Mitt Romney message.

While 45 percent of voters overall say they approve of Obama’s handling of the economy, just 37 percent of independents believe that. Obama has a 12 point advantage among all voters on the issue of “who has presented a clearer plan for dealing with the economy – Obama or Romney?” But among independents that flips to an eight point advantage for Romney.

Even on the issue of Romney’s record in business, independent voters are more sympathetic to the Republican. Among all voters, more thought that Romney in his work as a corporate investor did more to cut jobs than create them (42 percent to 36 percent). But among independents, that flips to a six point advantage for Romney – 43-37 percent.

***

GlobeScan, a market-research firm, released a 23-country study last week showing that 58 percent of U.S. citizens “strongly agree” or “somewhat agree” that the rich deserve their wealth — a slight increase from a similar survey in 2008.

The findings come at a time when tax cuts for the rich, Mitt Romney’s wealth and Occupy Wall Street have all been hot topics in the 2012 campaign cycle…

The United States was one of only six countries surveyed where a majority thought the rich deserved their wealth. It ranked number three, with only Australia and Canada having more favorable views toward the rich. In Greece, just nine percent thought so.

***

[A] big chunk of President Obama’s 9.5 million-vote advantage [in 2008] is probably gone. Let’s break this down. According to exit polls, 44.8 million Republicans showed up to vote in 2004 while only 41.4 million did in 2008. Almost all those 3.4 million Republicans who stayed home have been energized by Mr. Obama’s agenda and are now eager to vote against him.

Gallup found in April that Republicans were five points more likely to vote than Democrats. More recent measures, including by the Pew Research Center in June, show Republican voters displaying more intense interest than Democrats. If 2008 stay-at-home Republicans vote, Mr. Obama’s margin would shrink by more than one-third (to 6.1 million). Similarly, the 2.4 million veterans who voted in 2004 but did not in 2008 could turn out in 2012. Mr. McCain’s winning margin among vets was 10 points…

According to the exit polls, Mr. Obama won independents by eight points in 2008 (52% vs. 44% for Mr. McCain). But the July 1 CNN/Opinion Research poll showed Mr. Romney winning independents by seven points, 49% to 42%. The June 24 Gallup poll found Mr. Romney up by one among independents, 43% to 42%. Independents will shift back and forth, but if they split 49% to 49% (with the rest going to minor candidates), then Mr. Obama’s vote total would be shaved by 1.1 million and Mr. Romney’s would grow by an equal amount, cutting the president’s margin to 1.4 million…

Finally, Mr. Obama faces real challenges in generating the turnout he needs from blacks, Hispanics and young people.

***

After the back-to-back debacles of 1980 and 1984, the Democratic party essentially rebuilt its core coalition. Since 1988 the party has not fallen below 46 percent of the two party vote, either in the presidential contest or the national House race. That looks to be the core Democratic base of support in this country.

If we go by his job approval, this is roughly all President Obama is holding at the moment. He pulls in a little bit more in most polls most of the time, but not very much. The most recent read from the RealClearPolitics average of polls has him at 46.8 percent approval. (And the bulk of those polls are either polls of adults or registered voters, which tend to be more favorable to Democrats than the actual electorate.)…

Obviously, things could pan out differently. The president’s job approval rating could improve, moving him above that magic line of 50 percent. Alternatively, the campaign this season could go so well for Obama that he does what few incumbents before him have managed, and win a substantial share of those who disapprove of his job performance.

But with the economic outlook looking increasingly glum, and with Mitt Romney being well financed and reasonably acceptable, this president is probably going to struggle to get above 50 percent.

Today’s theme is O is going down the tubes.
It’s so easy to buy in to this about independents etc, despite the two trackers having it Gallup O + 2, Rasmussen Romney +1. It’s like a close basketball game that’s going into the 4th quarter and could go either way depending on how the ball bounces. No way do we rest on our weak laurels now, as to lose would be disastrous. We shouldn’t bring in the third-stringers now. We can’t get complacent. No, keep fighting in the trenches, dig out and expose to the wider world the insidious evils that O harbors. And donate$. And advise other to donate.

Yes, I was addressing that article the other night. That’s fine if Obama had $110 million cash on hand at the end of May (as I also cited above), but the question is, what’s his burn rate? How much did he blow through in JUNE? That’s the number the campaign won’t release.

Remember, Obama started out with a 10 to 1 cash advantage over Romney at the end of the primaries. By the end of May he still enjoyed a 2 to 1 cash advantage. But how the mighty have fallen from 10 to 1! The big question is how much did he blow, to no real effect, in June… what is his cash on hand for JUNE?

Schadenfreude beyond belief, in Wisconsin.

Lehman’s victory gives Democrats a 17-16 majority in the Senate, which may be short-lived because half of its members are up for re-election in November and Republicans have redrawn election lines to favor themselves.

The result also has little meaning because the chamber is not expected to reconvene until January.

Schadenfreude on July 12, 2012 at 12:17 AM

Which would mean he blew through his end of May cash on hand (which is all the media will report) and probably some of the $71 million he raised in June. Which could very well leave him even with or less than Romney. NOT what the media wanted to be reporting mid-summer, that, financially, the Obama campaign is tanking already.

I’m assuming the Obama will have to release the figures eventually.

As I recall, the Breitbart article also understates Romney’s end of May cash on hand, but I don’t recall the exact figure. By end of June, however, Romney’s cash on hand is within spitting distance of Obama’s end of May. And Romney hasn’t been spending like a President on a deficit-raising stimulus spending binge. He’s conserving his cash, and letting Obama blow through his. I’d expect Romney’s carpet bombing to begin a little before the conventions. He’ll have more than enough $$$ for it.

It would take me a while to link it, but you can google and quickly find the stories showing that Obama outspent Romney 3 to 1 on tv ad buys in April/May (and I think even more on internet advertising or something)… and there are numbers. Obama has been hugely outspending Romney to date.

Which is why I haven’t flipped out in despair over the poll numbers. 3 to 1 spending advantage and the best Obama’s been able to do is hold even. Although, as we know from tonights excellent QOTD posts,the ground is shifting on Obama at much deeper levels.

de rigueur on July 12, 2012 at 12:11 AM

According to Katie Pavlich’s article:

The FBI did not confirm whether any of these bandits were working as FBI informants at the time of Terry’s death, which confidential sources have said to be the case.

You know what I don’t get? These guys were indicted in November, why the need to release that information now, because some have speculated that releasing these guys names and photos could put their lives in danger?

I would have no problem with that, unless having them silenced is Holder’s intention.

You have to wonder.

This, apparently related to evidence that a third gun at the Terry crime scene– traceable to the informant?– was found.

HOw can 11% identifying as republicans support Obama?

tom daschle concerned on July 11, 2012 at 11:04 PM

Well, I can give anecdotal evidence. Several years ago, there was great rejoicing when Tucson elected [gasp!] a Republican City Councilman. Tucson does at-large elections which essentially means that the democrats get to pick all of the councilmen from all of the wards, regardless of the vote within an individual ward. Well, Steve K took office and for a little while performed as a reasonably conservative person in an overwhelmingly democrat council. That apparently got old and he started “going along to get along”. Some of that may be understandable, he’s the only republican now in the city government since the liberal republican mayor didn’t run and a democrat [surprise, surprise] won the last election.

Sooo, this spring when Gabby Giffords resigned and Colonel Sanders announced he was running to replace her, the Republican councilman told the Pima County GOP that they should not even run anyone for that seat but should cede the seat to Col. Sanders (Ron Barber, take a look at his picture, you’ll see why we call him that) and not even challenge him. When the GOP politely laughed and moved on to find a candidate, Republican Steve K volunteered to work for Col. Sanders’s campaign.

That is the kind of “Republican” in that 11%.

Third Gun Linked to ‘Fast and Furious’ Identified at Border Agent’s Murder Scene

A third gun linked to “Operation Fast and Furious” was found at the murder scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, new documents obtained exclusively by Fox News suggest, contradicting earlier assertions by federal agencies that police found only two weapons tied to the federal government’s now infamous gun interdiction scandal.

Sources say emails support their contention that the FBI concealed evidence to protect a confidential informant. Sources close to the Terry case say the FBI informant works inside a major Mexican cartel and provided the money to obtain the weapons used to kill Terry.

Unlike the two AK-style assault weapons found at the scene, the third weapon could more easily be linked to the informant. To prevent that from happening, sources say, the third gun “disappeared.”

Ahhh…can’t you use your regular computer?

cynccook on July 12, 2012 at 12:44 AM

Yes, okay I’ll do that. I was just starting to get used to having all the comments center margin. I’ll head down to the machines. Any preference which one? Oh, I guess that doesn’t really matter to you does it now. Lol!

Come on man, open the door!

AZfederalist on July 12, 2012 at 12:51 AM

I would if I knew who was knocking!..:)

Nope, found a great ranch in Utah. I live upstairs from the horse stables. Giddy Up!

JPeterman on July 12, 2012 at 12:49 AM

That beats sleeping in the stables, like my sisters and nieces. Ranch sounds cool.

Do you mean so everyone can hear it? You could just carry a boombox with you. Work, school, shopping. It might clash with the Macy’s soundtrack, though.

We’re well, thank you! How about the Straits? :D

jaime on July 12, 2012 at 12:57 AM

I was thinking of something more subtle than that. Maybe it could play over the PAs wherever I go — instead of the usual music. And hey, I like Macy’s!

Thanks. DOJ initially denied that a third gun even existed:

“The FBI has made clear that reports of a third gun recovered from the perpetrators at the scene of Agent Terry’s murder are false,” the department said in a statement Monday.

Now it’s “disappeared”?

de rigueur on July 12, 2012 at 1:01 AM

You just revived a heartthrob from 40 yrs ago.

Digging into the crosstabs of our ABC/Washington Post poll it’s clear that Obama has a significant problem with independent voters. On every measure, independents are significantly more disappointed with the president and more open to a Mitt Romney message

Sure to widen after the NAACP performance.

cynccook on July 12, 2012 at 12:53 AM

This version of Diamonds Are Forever would be my theme song. I can really see myself strolling through downtown with that playing in the background. I’d have to wear a dinner jacket every day, though. I guess that might not be so bad.

AZfederalist on July 12, 2012 at 12:51 AM

I don’t know how you and everyone feels about Romney not releasing all his tax returns..But looks like Team Romney just played the Democrats like Team Obie played the birth certificate issue!.Pay back is he!!..:)

PS..Worked like a charm!..:)

Mmmm. Back when Mel Gibson’s outside didn’t quite so closely resemble his inside. :/

cynccook on July 12, 2012 at 1:00 AM

Yeah, I like Macy’s, too. Especially if they would play my theme song every time I walked in the door. You know, just to notify the staff to be on their toes.

Wow!..I am thinking I have an “inherited” one myself!..:)

Dire Straits on July 12, 2012 at 1:04 AM

Or maybe this would be my theme song. Now I can’t decide.
