Barack Hussein Obama is tanking with White voters. The latest Heartland Monitor poll illustrates in vivid detail the ongoing racialization of American politics.
Every White subdemographic (yes, even you Damn Yankees) has turned against BRA’s president:
Obama has declined from 54 percent (2008 exit poll data) to 39 percent (December 2011) among White Millennials aged 18 to 29.
College Educated White Women
Obama has declined from 52 percent (2008 exit poll data) to 42 percent (December 2011) among college educated White women.
Obama has declined from 85 percent (2008 exit poll data) to 75 percent (December 2011) among White Democrats.
Obama has declined from 47 percent (2008 exit poll data) to 32 percent (December 2011) among White Independent voters.
White Gen X’ers
Obama has declined from 41 percent (2008 exit poll data) to 29 percent (December 2011) among White Gen X’ers.
Non-College Educated White Women
Obama has declined from 41 percent (2008 exit poll data) to 30 percent (December 2011) among non-college educated White women.
Obama has declined from 42 percent (2008 exit poll data) to 35 percent (December 2011) among White Boomers.
Non-College Educated White Men
Obama has declined from 39 percent (2008 exit poll data) to 34 percent (December 2011) among working class White men.
College Educated White Men
Obama has declined from 42 percent (2008 exit poll data) to 37 percent (December 2011 among college educated White men.
Obama has slightly improved his standing among White Seniors and has risen from 40 percent (2008 exit poll data) to 41 percent (December 2011).
Let’s have a round of applause for White Gen X’ers now in their prime working years whose hostility toward BRA’s president is unmatched among the broader White electorate. White Millennials have also turned more sharply against Obama than any other White subdemographic.
BRA’s racial etiquette demands an endless stream of Mainstream Media editorials about how Republicans are “in trouble” with Hispanic voters. The fact that Obama and the Democratic Party have tanked among White voters who still comprise a commanding majority of the electorate is something that liberal journalists prefer not to talk about.
In other news, 16 percent of Whites believe there is “a lot of discrimination in America today” compared to 59 percent of African-Americans. 9 percent of Whites believe that Whites are treated better than African-Americans in BRA while 56 percent of African-Americans cling to this view.
25 percent of Whites are “BRA conscious”: they believe that African-Americans are treated better than Whites in our society. In the mid-2000s, the White majority began to perceive anti-White bias as a greater problem than anti-black bias for the first time ever. 11 percent of Whites now believe anti-White bias is a 10 on a scale of 10.
As Paul Kersey often reminds us, the ranks of “Those Who Can See” are growing by the day. There are already twice as many Whites who believe the government favors African-American over Whites as the liberal minority which takes the opposite view. The number of Whites who perceive anti-White bias as being a serious problem is also growing exponentially and this is starting to be reflected in things like Obama’s declining approval rating or Democrats “explicitly abandoning the White working class.”
Note: Liberal historians who hang the legitimacy of the “Civil War” on the deification of African-Americans in BRA are ultimately going to find themselves on the losing side of this argument as Whites descend into minority status in the United States.
The perceptions of the past are always shaped by the realities of the present. As we move further into the 21st century, Whites are becoming more racially conscious. Economic decline is accelerating this change in White racial attitudes. Demographically, the nation is becoming more like Alabama.
A decade from now, America will be a changed country on race, and what was seen as “progress” in BRA will be reinterpreted as “decline” in its successor. This retrenchment of White racial attitudes is reminiscent of the “great change in feeling” on race that swept over America during the Long Depression of the 1890s.
