Poll: Key Obama Supporters Losing Faith

July 15, 2013 by  

During President Barack Obama’s first campaign he managed to sail into the White House with overwhelming youth and minority support. The President was able to reestablish hype with members of the same demographic in his second campaign.

But as Obama moves further into his second Presidential term, blacks, Hispanics and young voters are increasingly tiring of the President’s inability to deliver on idealistic campaign promises, according to poll results.

The results of the latest Zogby Analytics poll of 919 likely voters show Obama carrying only 46 percent approval among young Americans, 68 percent among Hispanics and 84 percent among blacks. By contrast, Obama won the 2012 Presidential election with respective 61, 71 and 84 percent support those demographic categories.

Zogby  explains the slipping support as follows:

Here it is the summer of 2013 and the President faces a barrage of bad news. First it is a series of scandals – Benghazi, the IRS, and NSA eavesdropping. Then it is chaos in Syria and Egypt, while the nation he leads stands by powerless. All of this is followed by the antics of a young high school dropout who has used his security clearance to reveal highly classified secrets that are embarrassing the United States before its allies. To cap it all off, the President’s domestic agenda is stalled, notably his efforts to pass the first real immigration reform in a generation.
