You know it’s really bad out there for the dems when a poll from one of their dependable polling machines has their Dear Leader going down! So much to say…so little time today, so I’ll just cut to the chase and start off with good ol’ Morning Schmo regarding what took place this morning on one of their segments.
This is via Mediaite:
On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough was flummoxed by a new CBS News/New York Times poll that shows Obama’s support among female voters plummeting five points over the last two months, from 49% to 44% with Romney up 3 from 43% to 46%. “Remember the gender gap, Mark Halperin? What happened?” Scarborough asked. “Romney had the latest CBS/New York Times poll, you look inside the numbers, 6% more of the respondents were Democrats than Republicans. This poll was tilted Democratic. Still, more women supporting Romney right now!”
Halperin surmised that Obama’s crashing numbers among women may have included red state respondents which threw off the poll.
“There’s dissonance in the numbers,” Halperin observed. “People’s optimism with the economy with Romney doing better. The trend is clear in the national numbers. National numbers aren’t what decides this. The president is going to crater in a lot of the red states. It’s going to throw off some of the numbers. He may do worse in the red states than Romney does in the blue states. That makes the numbers skewed. It’s clear, as Romney gets further and further away from Perry and Santorum, his overall favorable/unfavorable looks better. It’s clear Governor Romney is consolidating support among people unhappy with the president.”
Scarborough asked Mike Barnicle if President Obama’s support for gay marriage hurt him among women. Barnicle didn’t think Obama’s position on gay marriage made much of an impact among voters.
“I don’t think it’s much of an issue,” Barnicle said. “It won’t be a big issue when it comes to voting in the fall. What I think might be happening here in those numbers is there are an enormous number of women in this country who are heads of households. They work, they raise a family, they go shopping, they buy things and they are fearful of the economy. Despite the numbers in the economy and the polls you just had, I think the question, depends on how the question is phrased, an extraordinary number of people hope the economy will get better. Not that they expect it will, they are hoping it will. I think it might have something to do with the numbers when it comes to women supporting Romney.”
Watch Scarborough’s surprise in Romney’s support among women below via MSNBC:
Next up we have the black pastors saying they will stay home before voting for Obama. I’ll put two examples of that below. This also defies what that brainiac Mike Barnacle had to say above as well.
First we have this from Rev. Burns…this is also via Mediaite:
President Obama’s headline-grabbing flip-flop on gay marriage may cost him dearly in the more religious parts of the black community, reports CNN today, as pastors tell their congregations the president is wrong in stepping in. In a report on the divide over social issues in the black community, Athena Jones speakers to Rev. Dr. Emmett Burns, who insists that, while he and his peregrines won’t support Mitt Romney, they have no interest in going to the polls.
Jones reports that, while some pastors, like Rev. Wallace Charles Smith, support the President with the caveat that “we preferred that he had not weighed in on the issue,” Rev. Burns (also a state legislator) has no interest in voting this year. “People have come up to me, are saying they don’t support this, they don’t like this,” he argued. “They are disappointed with the President, and they plan to stay home.”
Anchor Carol Costello followed up with an interview with Marvin Randolph, Senior Vice President of Campaigns for the NAACP, who expressed concern that the attitude of leaders in the religious community could lead to a suppression of the African American vote. “The only way to affect the issues that you care about is by voting at the ballot box,” Randolph noted, adding that many elections, not just the presidential one, could be affected negatively in this way. “We have to make sure that African Americans don’t stay home this year by reminding them what’s at stake,” he concluded– and that includes all sorts of community and local positions that have a much more direct effect on a neighborhood, town, or city than the presidential one.
Just for some added fun we now have poor, pitiful Tingles showing his ever-evolving brain-power regarding this matter. This is via FN:
Hardball anchor Chris Matthews, who routinely smears his political opponents as racist, on Monday lectured an African American minister who opposes gay marriage, “I hope you evolve.” The host patronizingly added, “I’m just teasing.” [See video below. MP3 audio here.] How would he (or MSNBC for that matter) react if a conservative said such a thing to a black leader?
Matthews interviewed Bishop Harry Jackson, who has spoken out against Barack Obama’s endorsement of gay marriage. Speaking of Jesus Christ, Matthews ridiculously linked accusations that Mitt Romney once bullied a teen, nearly 50 years ago: “Do you think [Christ] would have been chasing after the kid with long hair and cutting his hair or he would have been the one protecting the kid with long hair in high school?”
Now this video sums up everything about this poll that I had at the top…this is the administration now calling this poll biased etc etc…yesiree….they’re in a slow burn friends, and it’s gonna get a helluva lot hotter before we get to November!
Obama campaign deputy manager Stephanie Cutter dismissed today’s CBS/New York Times poll showing that 67 percent of people believed Obama made his decision on gay marriage for political reasons. Only 24 percent said that Obama did it “mostly because he thinks it is right.”
Host Chuck Todd asked Cutter about the poll, admitting that the methodology of the poll was different, because it was a callback poll. “Put those caveats aside that’s a lot of people saying that he did this for political reasons,” Todd said, noting that it was a 3-1 margin.
“We can’t put the methodology of that poll aside, because the methodology was significantly biased.” Cutter insisted on MSNBC this morning.
When pressed by Todd, Cutter said that she didn’t want to bore the viewers with talk of methodology, but repeated that she believed the poll was flawed.
Todd encouraged her to continue. “They’re junkies, they like this stuff,” he said of his viewers.
“It’s a biased sample, so they re-biased the same sample,” she concluded.
Now friends…this opinion piece sums up the dire shape the dems are in…especially their messiah as well. Take a quick read of this and see if you agree. “Alarm Grows Among Dems About Obama’s Chances”
But…hey friends…Dear Leader says he’s not worried, no siree not a all. Read about it here.
All of Dear Leader’s tactics from the War on Women, Class Warfare, Race-Division to the Gay Marriage issue etc, etc…everything their messiah touches turns to disaster…and some of them are finally waking up to that fact, which is too little, to late at this stage of the game. The word ‘BACKFIRE‘ applies here…big time!
Throw in you two-cents friends…this is how I’m going to sum it all up: Can You Say Landslide!?
