View Full Version : White men shun Democrats

White men can't jump, but they can vote to cripple a Presidency.


Millions of white men who voted for Barack Obama are walking away from the Democratic Party, and it appears increasingly likely that they'll take the midterms elections in November with them. Their departure could well lead to a GOP landslide on a scale not seen since 1994.

For more than three decades before the 2008 election, no Democratic president had won a majority of the electorate. In part, that was because of low support -- never more than 38 percent -- among white male voters. Things changed with Obama, who not only won a majority of all people voting, but also pulled in 41 percent of white male voters.

Polling suggests that the shift was not because of Obama but because of the financial meltdown that preceded the election. It was only after the economic collapse that Obama's white male support climbed above the 38 percent ceiling. It was also at that point that Obama first sustained a clear majority among all registered voters, according to the Gallup tracking poll.


It looked for a moment as though Democrats had finally reached the men of Bruce Springsteen's music, bringing them around to the progressive values Springsteen himself has long endorsed. But liberal analysts failed to understand that these new Democrats were still firmly rooted in American moderation.


Pollsters regularly ask voters whether they would rather see a Democrat or Republican win their district. By February, support for Democrats among white people (male and female) was three percentage points lower than in February 1994, the year of the last Republican landslide.


Today, among whites, only 35 percent of men and 43 percent of women say they will back Democrats in the fall election. Women's preferences have remained steady since July 2009. But white men's support for a Democratic Congress has fallen eight percentage points, according to Gallup.

White men have moved away from Obama as well. The same proportion of white women approve of him -- 46 percent, according to Gallup -- as voted for him in 2008. But only 38 percent of white men approve of the President, which means that millions of white men who voted for Obama have now lost faith in him.


The migration of white men from the Democratic Party was evident in the election of Republican Scott Brown in Massachusetts. His opponent, a white woman, won 52 percent of white women. But white men favored Brown by a 60 percent to 38 percent margin, according to Fabrizio, McLaughlin & Associates polling.

Remember there's a difference in demographics since 1994. White people are a smaller percentage of the population now than in 94, so if the patterns stay the same it would take even more white men to turn away from Democrats.

I'm sure that's true, but one is forced to ask:
How many of those born since 1994 will be voting?:)

Remember that OBlah Blah and the DIMS have finally exposed who they really are and can no longer hide behind the media shield. They are Marxist and will pay for it at the polls.

We We does not understand that the thrill is gone over the Magic Negro's election. Young whites who have either lost their job or can not find one are not that enthusiastic over Obummer performance. Same goes for those that were gung ho about his election. When you are worse off economically after the election, it will be impossible to ramp up support unless the economy turns around. In other words, the O support among whites, black, etc will not be nearly energized come election time resulting in a slaughter at the polls in 2010 and another blow out in 2012. Changing for the worst is not a winning strategy.

We We is like the other drones of the left in that they mis-interpreted the results of the election as a mandate for Marxism-Socialism and not for what it was- a backlash against the previous eight years.
The other thing against OBlah Blah is people cannot stand to listen to him anymore. He's worse than Chatty Cathy and just won't shut up. He comes across as arrogant and snobbish (his true nature) and repeats himself incessantly.

The fact that he has no discernible Black dialect and that he is clean and articulate, and light skinned, will not help him on the second go-around.

Interesting. If those white men are married, their wives are likely to drop the Democrats, also.

Not necessarily.

Not necessarily.

Surveys show that married women are more likely to vote for conservatives anyway so I'd guess that they'd be more likely to drop the Democrats with a little spousal encouragement. ;)

The former Mrs. Wiggum didn't really care for politics, and if I would ever try to convince her of anything, she'd just roll her eyes at me.

I'm sure every married couple is different, however.

C'mon Ralph, you're divorced... you can use her real name and phone number now :D

When I met her new husband to-be a couple of years ago, a friend told me that I should give him the number for our marriage counselor. :D

I was a precinct election judge for many years. It always amazed when older couples would come in and the wife would have zero clue about anything on the ballot, she'd be there just to vote how her husband told her. I had more than one oldie couple get mad at me for not just handing him two ballots and letting them go into one booth together.

My Wife, Daughters, Son, and their spouses always ask me who they should vote for. I always tell them to vote for whomever they think will represent them best, then I tell them whom I am voting for.

I just tell people who to vote for, it saves time!

I like to let them think they made their own decision, they always put in the yard signs. :D
