A new Gallup poll has Obama's approval rating at 56%. For the month of June Obama's approval rating was 61%. The demographic breakdown for the June numbers had 53% of whites approving the job the president was doing, with 95% of blacks and 81% of all other non-whites likewise.
With the new 56% approval number for July 8th, it appears that Obama's favorability among whites has most likely dropped near or below 50%. Gallup has not provided internals for this new poll.
Since most congressional districts are racially gerrymandered, it will be interesting to see if more "Blue Dog" Democrats, whose constituents are predominately white, start asserting themselves more against this administration. It would bean encouraging event to see Mississippi Congressman Gene Taylor (D), who did not endorse Obama for president, take the lead in this effort.
Chrisite looks likely to defeat Corzine in November.

Man, 58%? Isn't that bound to be the lowest a president's achieved during the honeymoon period? We of course would rate him a zero or worse, but it's good news that Oh!Bummer is already viewed that negatively by the sheeple.
I guess it's a sure thing people are now rating him on real-world factors -- lost job, can't sell house etc. -- as opposed to the purely pigmentational and ideological criteria they went by in electing him, as you indicate. Blax voted their skin color, whites voted their guilty lack of any.

Christie, meaning Whitman? Please share with us your opinion of her or whomever you're referring to. If Corzine is worse than CTW, the situation is extreme. (As it was when I left NJ in 1992!)
You're obviously doing some fine work at work, Gard -- in keeping with the patriot's unwritten motto that every moment is a teachable moment. Everybody remember that every hour of the day. Carry TNT and other patriot lit in your car -- chances will </span>come up for sharing and expounding it. Don't be bashful!
Wow, so much good news out of the belly of the beast! Love that last part, may the Whitmans rot in obscurity for all ages. Keep us up to date on Jersey's return from the dead please. One could easily imagine it's still a mostly conservative state in terms of the man on the street. Liberals there get all the coverage, but NE NJ can't be mistaken for the whole enchilada.
Wikipedia on ethnicity in NJ is confusing -- perhaps deliberately -- but it somehow sounds good for whites. Italians are the largest "ethnic group", with blax only in second place? Are they whistling in the dark?
Whatever happens, I still cherish the dream of white voters somehow finding themselves (each year we spend under pezident Oh!Bummer should help) and simply outnumbering the others at the polls when the chips are down. Don, ruin that for me please.
That all sounds great, Gard. Skol! Truth is never out of date......
I should know what all that means, but I don't. Blue Dogs are fiscally conservative Democrats and they can't stand the blatant socialism anymore, is that it??
So many people believed that this president represented "change",but never realize that he does not make a move until all are approved his handlers,Rahm Emanuel,David Axelrod,with back up by Saul Alinsky,mention these names to most people and see the blank stares!
Some tribally-named authoress was apparently detailed to mollify Obama's critics by writing a book showing how his alleged father was even more blatantly rotten than he. It predictably comes out spun as a "tragedy" not a farce as it properly should. How to demonstrate that Obama Sr. was a rotten, stinking bum but still attempt to use it to shore up love and affection for Barry?
OH... that's easy... it simply becomes part of the HARD CHILDHOOD he that turned Barry himself into a loser and monster, poor pitiful him! Works every time as the comments here also show:
Whole lotta spin goin' on since we ceased to be a meritocracy.....
I am not in the least interested in Obongo's sex life (except insofar as it's damning) and only post this to show what a fraud he is as negro icon. He clearly has no identification with either of his races since his only loyalty is to PC and what it can do for him.
Young Barack Obama Had Great ‘Sexual Warmth’ But Sharp Edges… And He ‘Didn’t Have a Black Bone in His Body’
My flight into JAX today was diverted to Orlando to accommodate Barry Soetoro's visit to Jacksonville to woo the Black Vote. My sources tell me that there was ONE SINGLE NEGRO in Jax who intended not to vote for Obama. To remedy such an unacceptable state of affairs, the POTUS crew complete with Air Farce One and the whole Secret Service plowed into Duval County to protect Soetoro from possible Al Qaeda attack. They shut down the entire airport for some hours. I was delayed by two hours. But we Honquis don't count anyway
Hopefully Barry was able to get through to that one Negro straggler.
