Get this, young voters, the one group whose unusually high voter turnout last November helped to cinch the election for Barack Obama, those between 18 and 29 years of age are fleeing from their initial pro-Obama views. A whopping 18% of those in the 18 to 29 age bracket have jumped ship in just this last month. In July their support for the President stood at 59%. As August passes it now stands at 41%.... Among Democrats, support for the President has dropped as much as 13% in just one month.. Those who call themselves liberals had nearly unanimous support for President Obama with 95% of all liberals on his side in July. Now, as we get in to the swing of September, even self proclaimed and proud liberals are distancing themselves from the President as 9% of them turn their backs on him, in just one month’s time... As for African-Americans, their support of the President was at a shrinking 83% in July but now stands at 74% as September begins. Another 9% drop in support in as little as one month... Lets talk about the decline of support in Obama's black voter base on the slugfest.
