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.

Yup. But Ed breaks down the demos really well. I’m not used to seeing the thing cut open the way he does it. He did the same kind of cutting into the EO earlier. I need to quit complimenting him, but the man needs complimenting. Kinda like AP when he feels like being poetic — AP can write!

One of my favorite bands doing one of the best songs ever about Sammy Davis, Jr.

Where Did His Eye Go?

Lyrics, which some may find offensive, courtesy of the YouTube page:

He used to be a star of
the stage and screen
but now he only sees half of everything
a funny little man with straight black hair
he lost it in an accident
but he doesn’t care

So, Where’d his eye go
I don’t know
Where did his eye go
I don’t know
But nothing can stop him now

I saw him last night on the telethon
he’s doing candyman with his glasses on
and then I saw him sing
what kind of fool am I
he whipped off his glasses and
I looked at his eye

But, Where’d his eye go
I don’t know
Where did his eye go
I don’t know
But nothing can stop him now

(Break)
We really love that boy
he’s brought us so much joy
he even used to be a goy
but things are different now
and I’m still wonderin how
He’ll keep an eye out for me now and then
but does he see in 3D
Where did his eye go
Is it lookin at me

He used to be a star of
the stage and screen
but now he only sees half of everything
a funny little man with straight black hair
he lost it in an accident
but he doesn’t care

Pretty good. I liked it.

Looks like my post/link to a story about Marc Rich’s wife turning in her passport in order to escape most of her tax liability got eaten by the link police…

Re-building after a fire, I think…

Gohawgs on July 12, 2012 at 1:54 AM

Thats right, gee, how could I have forgotten that? This aging thing isn’t all its cracked up to be.

Bmore on July 12, 2012 at 1:56 AM

haha I know it’s not as good, which is why I asked if I was being mean to a Dire Straits fan like you when I asked you to compare them! :)

Bizarro No. 1 on July 12, 2012 at 1:53 AM

LoLz..I hear you!..No You were not being mean at all!..:)

PS..I’m in “timeout” for playing a disco song!..:)

Dire Straits on July 12, 2012 at 1:57 AM

It’s real, all right. Real and AWESOME. (See my post at 1:49 above.)

cynccook on July 12, 2012 at 1:53 AM

Ok

No, seriously. Who even knew there were lyrics???

Okay, this is my new official theme song. Call me when there’s no where to go!

cynccook on July 12, 2012 at 1:49 AM

I guess I should have said it was sad that Sammy had to stoop so low for money, not that I was sad about the resulting art! :)

No, I like disco. I spent an entire evening here linking disco. I think was just a couple weeks ago.

Gotta Go. ‘Nite, All.

Axe on July 12, 2012 at 1:54 AM

Hmmm…they’re not quite ready to forgive you, though. Maybe if you say something like — oh, I don’t know — “please, please forgive me, you sweet little kitty cats, I’m sorry I was a big meanie.” You know, something like that…. Here, let me lift them up to the screen.

Disco is great! Sweet dreams, jaime. (We pronounce it the Spanish way, “hi-may,” right?

cynccook on July 12, 2012 at 2:00 AM

LoLz..I hear you!..No You were not being mean at all!..:)

I thought I was being terrible! :)

HeIIfire, I thought you two were talking about Axes kittys. You know cause he has that whole line of Mens hygiene accessories and all. I just assumed. Not that there’s anything wrong with that Axe.

Patrick Moynihan saw it long time ago’

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/18/us/for-women-under-30-most-births-occur-outside-marriage.html?pagewanted=all

For women under 30, 73 percent of black children are born outside marriage, compared with 53 percent of Latinos and 29 percent of whites. They are likely wallowed in poverty and government dependence.

Among single women, Barry leads 2 to 1. While we laughed at the ads, there are many Julias to tilt the election for Barry .

… Evening’s gone horribly awry.

… I remember shopping at Amazon for a few miscellaneous supplies. Now I’m petting kittens and watching Mary Tyler Moore open to the crooning of Sammy Davis Jr.

… World. Dangerous.
