article imageOp-Ed: President Obama’s political base begins to crack

By Eliot Elwar     Jun 15, 2012 in Politics
Obama’s public support for homosexual marriages, his attempt to divide Israel, along with his failure to significantly improve the U.S. economy threatens his re-election bid for the presidency.
Gallup reports: Barack Obama is getting less backing in the 2012 presidential election from European American voting groups, which provided him the greatest help in 2008. The groups comprise non-Hispanic European American registered voters who are between ages 18 and 29. This group also includes unmarried and nonreligious European American women. Although Obama won the 2008 election easily over John McCain, his 2012 presidential campaign against opponent Mitt Romney is becoming more competitive because the two men were tied when Gallup began its daily tracking of the race.
Business Insider reports: President Barack Obama is quickly losing his support among African-American voters in North Carolina and elsewhere, according a new poll. The poll indicates that Romney would earn 20 percent of the African-American vote and Obama would get 76 percent. Largely, Romney has a 48 percent lead over Obama in the decisive swing regions.
The Weekly Standard reports: President Obama's support among Jewish voters living in New York City and elsewhere has fallen 22 percentage points within the past month, according to a few poll results. President Obama has the support of 51 percent of Jewish voters, while 43 percent are opposed to him and 5 percent are undecided, according to a poll, conducted by Siena College. This means, Obama's lead among Jewish voters is at 8 percentage points.
Reuters reports: President Barack Obama's approval ratings have fallen to their lowest level among liberal and independent minded European American voters. The percentage of Americans who approve of Obama's work fell from 50 to 47 percent, which is his lowest level since early January 2012. The people who believe America is moving in the wrong direction increased significantly. The doubts about Obama's liberal leadership has been aiding Romney.
While many political analysts believe President Obama will be re-elected again, his declining support could weaken his political campaign for several reasons. First, when Obama came out for homosexual marriage along with his endorsement of Gay Pride, he began collapsing in the polls. Many within the African American community view homosexuality as unnatural, unmanly, immoral, and against God’s plan for humanity. Second, Obama’s decline in support from the Jewish American community is directly related to his awful relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu along with his feeble support for the Israeli State and his strong support for the Islamic community in the Mideast.
Finally, his complete failure in solving the economic issues that plague America has resulted in declining support from independent voting European Americans. Nevertheless, some political analysts assess that President Obama will achieve a narrow victory in the 2012 presidential election because the Republican Party is preparing more for the 2016 elections.
