RUSH: Now, I don’t mean to have been teasing you this long. “Obama Losing the Confidence of Key Parts of the Coalition that Elected Him.” It’s Karen Tumulty of the Washington Post. Women disapprove of Obama and the job he’s doing by 50 to 44%. That is a 16-point drop since the inauguration of Obama.
“Kimberly Cole was part of the coalition that voted in 2008 to make Barack Obama the 44th president and gave him another four years in 2012 to deliver on his promises of hope and change. Now, the 36-year-old mother of three young children in Valencia, Calif., is among the majority of Americans who have lost confidence in ObamaÂ’s leadership and the job he is doing as president. … ‘HeÂ’s lost his way,’ Cole said in an interview. She worries that Obama lacks the resolve needed at a time when things at home and abroad are looking scarier.”
What was her first clue? Why did Kimberly Cole not recognize this six years ago? I know, got caught up in all the hoopla, hope and change, it’s gonna be utopia. I understand all that, but a part of me doesn’t understand it. I understand sometimes it takes people long time to see the truth.
Another one: “Karlene Richardson, 44, once counted herself a ‘very strong supporter’ of the president. But now she feels much the same as Cole does. ‘Honestly, I just feel that what I bought into is not what IÂ’m getting. IÂ’m starting to wonder whether the world takes us seriously.'”
You understand, I read things like this and I don’t applaud. I get frustrated. Yeah, parts me take it personally, if they just listened six years ago. But, I know, people have to experience things themselves. “Women surveyed said they disapprove of Obama by a 50 percent to 44 percent margin — nearing an all-time low in the poll. ItÂ’s almost the reverse of the 55 percent to 44 percent breakdown for Obama among female voters in 2012, according to exit polls.”
By the way, this 16-point drop is not since 2008; it’s since 2012. It’s in two years. Actually, folks, it’s in a year-and-a-half. The approval rating among women has slipped 16 points since the second inaugural, January 2013. That’s big.
