The most recent CNN/ORC Poll results caught my eye.
Specifically, the demographic breakdown of President Obama’s job approval – disapproval.
Overall, CNN says that 51% approve of the job Obama is doing; 47% disapprove.
Here’s where it gets interesting:
90% of Dems approve; 85% of GOPers dis-approve
75% of non-whites approve; 58% of white dis-approve.
62% of urbanites approve; 55% of rurals dis-approve.
57% of folks under 50 years old approve; 55% of the over 50s dis-approve.
55% of folks making less than $50k approve; 50% of those making more than $50k dis-approve.
54% in non-battleground states approve; in battleground state, 52% dis-approve
44% of independents approve; 53% disapprove
So, the Obama composite: young non-white urbanites making less than $50k.
The dis-approvers: older non-urban whites making more than $50K.
