After being ahead most of the summer, Barack Obama's lead in the polls has evaporated. John McCain has a 5 point lead according to a Zogby poll. What could be happening to the Obamassiah's credibility? Hmmm, could be that all the policy reversals he's been going through.
I love how liberals think that reversing your position occasionally is considered "nuanced" but too much is flip-flopping. So who is jumping the Obama ship? No one group in particular. I seems his support is eroding across all his followers.
"That hairline difference between nuance and what appears to be flip-flopping is hurting him with liberal voters," Zogby said.
I have made it no secret that I do NOT support Obama nor will I vote for him. I do challenge my fellow African Americans to explain to me what it is exactly that Obama offers as a black candidate. I mean aside from the historical footnote of being the first black POTUS, do the 90% of blacks that support Obama think that once he is in office, he's going to usher in some new age of black prosperity? Is he going to throw open the governmental coffers and pay every black person for all the persecution suffered at the hands of "Mr. Charlie" all those years? Why would you support an absolute novice based solely on race? Inquiring minds want to know.
The dip in support for Obama, who would be the first black U.S. president, cut across demographic and ideological lines. He slipped among Catholics, born-again Christians, women, independents and younger voters. He retained the support of more than 90 percent of black voters.
