WHAT, NO FEVER?:

White women cold toward Obama (DAVID PAUL KUHN, 5/29/08, Politico)

Barack Obama’s favorability ratings among white women have declined significantly in recent months, particularly among Democrats and independents, presenting an immediate obstacle for the likely Democratic nominee as he moves to shore up his party’s base.

According to a new report by The Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, half of white women now have a negative perception of Obama.

Forty-nine percent of white women view Obama unfavorably, while only 43 percent hold a favorable opinion.


The Democratic primaries are a tribal contest--and he ain't their tribe.

Benny - true but it's still a little murky who will be doing the crying.
