President Obama may be losing support among white voters, according to a new Pew Research poll. In 2008, Obama mainly ran well among two groups of whites -- young people and white women with at least a four year college education, two groups that are generally receptive to government activism, the National Journal points out in a story Thursday. And in 2010 GOP landslide, those groups stuck with Democrats relatively more loyally than the rest of the white electorate.
But that support is falling. Figures provided to National Journal by Pew from the new survey suggests that Obama has recaptured ground Democrats lost with well-educated white women in 2010. Still, he is still struggling with every other segment of the white electorate, including younger voters.
These results underscore the basic dynamic looming over the 2012 presidential race, the Journal suggests.
Obama's best group in the white electorate remains well-educated women, who tend toward more liberal positions on social issues. They also are more receptive to government activism. In the new poll, 56 percent of college-educated white women said they approved of Obama's performance.
Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. I am not afraid. - M. Aurelius

I've seen exit polls that said 57 percent of Whites voted against Obama.
If you subtract out Jews who voted 80 percent for Obama, that means 60 percent of Whites voted against Obama.
If only White people could vote, Obama would have lost by a landslide in 2008.
I would not be surprised if 80 to 90 percent of Whites vote against Obama in 2012.
Obama's doing more to unite the White race than we are.
