    AP-GfK Poll: Obama faces trouble with key voters

    AP-GfK Poll: Obama faces trouble with key voters
    By JENNIFER AGIESTA, Associated Press 19 hours ago

    WASHINGTON (AP) Whites and women are a re-election problem for President Barack Obama. Younger voters and liberals, too, but to a lesser extent. All are important Democratic constituencies that helped him win the White House in 2008 and whose support he'll need to keep it next year. An analysis of Associated Press-GfK polls, including the latest survey released last week, shows that Obama has lost ground among all those groups since he took office.

    Among the findings:

    Just 3 in 10 white independents say Obama deserves to be re-elected and only 41 percent say he understands the problems of people like them.

    Fifty-six percent of all whites approved of how he was doing his job in the first three months of his presidency. But that support has fallen, with only 36 percent now liking how he's doing his job, while 59% say Obama deserves to be voted out of office.

    In the latest AP-GfK survey, less than half of all women and less than half of all men approve of the job Obama is doing. Just 50 percent of women said Obama deserves re-election.

    Twenty-seven percent of Democrats under age 45 say Obama is not a strong leader, compared with 11 percent in June.

    The share of liberals who say "strong leader" describes Obama "very well" has fallen from 53 percent to 29 percent in the aftermath of the debt-ceiling debate.

    Obama's approval/confidence numbers are plunging among whites, white independents, women, the young, and even liberals.

    The question remains... Can he win reelection in 2012 without significant upturns in the economy/job sector/debt controls?

    I don't think so.

    Yeah, seems to me Obama doesn't stand a chance.

    It all depends on who he's running against.

    This, along with the next year for Obama is key. If the republicans put up someone who can't appeal to the country as a whole, then they don't have a shot.

    In a normal cycle yes. But if the economy remains stagnant or worsens, I think Americans will vote for a change regardless.

    It depends on a lot of things that still have yet to play out. Who is the GOP nominee and will that shift votes to/from Obama? Can he rally the base like he did in 2008? Will the GOP base be rallied? What will the Democratic race look like? Are these just people, who now, are venting their disapproval of Obama, but will still vote for him?

    He's losing support among these key groups because he has caved to too many Republican demands. These people are not going to repsond by voting Republican.

    Exactly. We were disappointed in Dec/Jan with the extending tax cuts for the wealthy and now this debt caving in simply is heart breaking. Obama reminds me of somebody who wants to fight with regulation boxing gloves under the Marquis of Queensbury rules with a referee in the middle of a bar fight with a bunch of outlaw motorcyclists. He badly needs to grab the baseball bat, drive a nine inch nail through it and aim for the GOP forehead.

    But its just not in him and that is heartbreaking.

    We should have seen this coming with Rahm Emanuel. I thought it was super great when he hired Rahm to be chief of staff but then will not let him do his thing and Rahm splits at the first opportunity. That was the warning omen.

    This is silly. Bush didn't appeal to the country as a whole. Especially in his second term. Reagan kicked butt in his second term because he did but he hardly did the first time. People simply thought Carter wasn't up to the task.
