Zero’s Worst Poll Number – Very Interesting!!
Some very interesting data on Zeros crash and burn approval ratings from Real Clear Politics. Zeros worse loss comes from the under 29 MOB! It looks like the kids aren’t into Socialism either. I can’t say I blame them.
First off, note Obama’s drop-off among young people. Young people were supposed to be a critical component of the new Democratic majority. Granted their approval is still slightly higher than the other groups, but it has far and away been the most volatile, dropping more than any other. This should not come as a huge surprise. Baby Boomers were partial to McGovern in 1972, but swung around to Reagan in the 80s. Young people’s political dispositions are still being formed.
Yet, Obama’s worst poll number here is actually his share among seniors. I’m guessing it relates to the health care debate. The White House should be very concerned, and for one simple reason: seniors vote.
