Douglas Shoen, a well respected Democratic pollster, has polled the “Occupy Wall Street” crowd in Zuccotti Square and quantitatively proven what we can already discern from their visage.
Who are these people?
“Occupy Wall Street” is the Far Left in America. This is the hardcore vanguard of the “progressive movement.” It the Reddit demographic on the internet that is always campaigning for wealth redistribution and other insane causes on college campuses.
What is going on here?
The Obama coalition has disintegrated and the progressive horse has broken free of The One’s reelection wagon train – in 2008, the Occupy Wall Street protesters overwhelmingly voted for Obama, but now they reject him 51 percent to 44 percent, and only 48 percent say they will vote for him in 2012.
Obama has succeeded in destroying the Democratic Party: Jacksonian Whites have deserted en masse, Big Labor is demoralized and alienated, Hispanics are frustrated and despondent, African-Americans are cynical, Wall Street has switched sides to Romney, and the Moonbat Nation has left the building ranting about climate change and corporations!
How do you win reelection with such a broken coalition and 9 percent unemployment? I read somewhere that only 40 percent of college educated White women now approve of Obama.
Right now, Obama is touring North Carolina and Virginia on BRA’s Freedom Ride – the opaque black, custom made, $1.1 million dollar Canadian Matrix bus – entertaining the delusion that he can win North Carolina in 2012 which he won with less than 1 percent of the vote in 2008.
The only reason he is spending so much time in North Carolina and Virginia is because the Obama team is staring defeat in the face in Ohio and Florida and likely several other swing states like Pennsylvania.
In other news, Obama has a 41 percent approval rating in New Hampshire. Good luck trying to win North Carolina when New Hampshire is slipping out of reach and your own base has abandoned you.
