New Poll Reveals Obama's Support Among Blacks Significantly Down
It's common knowledge that black voters vote in a block, or is it? Early we told you about Rep. Arthur Davis' jump to the GOP amid concerns over racial issues. We showed you how the Obama campaign was targeting black voters and telling them they need to, "get his back." Now a new poll from the left-leaning Public Policy Polling reveals Obama does indeed have a black problem.
In the 2008 presidential election Obama won black voters in North Carolina, receiving 95 percent of the vote. Today's PPP poll shows his support among blacks has dropped to 76%. Romney received 20%.
If these numbers hold true, Obama's re-election prospects will be severely hampered.
