Read this article from the LA times this morning:
According to recent polls Obama has lost the overall white vote in big numbers since April. The elderly and the white female vote most of all.
Among white Democrats, Obama’s job approval rating has dropped 11 points since his 100-days mark in April, according to surveys by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press. It has dropped by 9 points among white independents and whites over 50, and by 12 points among white women -- all groups that will be targeted by both parties in next year's midterm elections.
This seems to lend some support to my earlier claim from yesterdays post that perhaps women or more specifically white middle class women are also becoming dis-satisfied with the political wing of the feminist movement.
My opinion has always been that by and large Obama's white support came from the white female vote and that women's special interest groups were the ones who gathered this support for him.
"While Obama has a lock on African Americans, his support among white voters seems to be almost in a free fall," said veteran Republican pollster Neil Newhouse.
As I posted earlier now maybe the time to actively try and gain more sympathy from white middle class females for men's rights issues.
I know so many of them comment that they are not like that, yet still take advantage of every biased law and legislation passed for them when it is useful.
But a guy can still hope can't he?
