Obama about to lose election!

I was just surfing about when I came upon this article..Have a laugh! And to think someone gets paid for this!!

E: Chris Cillizza notes Obamaís crumbling base:

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll shows those who supported his 2008 election leaving the president in unprecedented numbers. The number of Obama 2008 voters who approve of his job performance is down to 79 percent, and on the economy, itís 70 percent. Both are new lows for the president.

Whatís more, some of his natural constituencies ó liberals and young people ó are also backing away. Just 69 percent of liberals say they approve of the presidentís performance, while 47 percent of 18-to-29 year olds do. Those are also new lows, and itís the first time the youngest demographic has dipped below 50 percent approval for Obama.

Itís more in a long line of polling data that paints a bad picture for Obama in recent weeks. But given the unprecedented coalition that the president put together in 2008, these numbers are particularly troubling.

Obamaís win in 2008 was particularly notable for the amount of young people who turned out to vote for him. And vote for him they did, casting ballots about two-to-one for the Democrat.

These days, just 41 percent of 18-to-29 year olds approve of Obamaís handling of the economy, and 45 percent approve of him on jobs. Combine that with the erosion Obama has seen among liberals and independents, and the question is: what is Obamaís base for the 2012 election?

1. Dated September 6, 2011

before Romney hadn't pissed away the one advantage he had -- the independent vote -- by refusing to display more of his income tax returns.

3. Cilliza sang that song right up until election day. "Crumbling base" my Aunt Fanny.

Cilliza has always been a staple around NPR, especially The Diahn Rehm Show, but he's been conspicuously absent since the election. I'm hoping he'll come on, and take calls so he can issue a mea culpa. If there's anyone in the M$M who's influenced by the noise at Fox News, it's Chris Cilliza. Dreadful commentator/blogger/asskisser.

keep my lunch down between those two, would be damned near impossible. Cilliza is especially grating, because he assumes he knows a helluva lot more than he actually does. I think the term is "smarmy".

12. Indeed he did...why this know-nothing clown still has a job is a mystery

Who else can make predictions, be 100% wrong most of the time and on the most important questions, and keep their job?

Only pundits and Beltway shitheads.

Cilizza should have resigned in embarrassment the minute they called Ohio.

10. Peter Daou was Clinton's blogger for her Presidential run. Went from carrying water

for Mark Penn to a Naderite whiner.
