HIS BASE IS DOWN TO FOLKS WHO'D NEVER VOTE REPUBLICAN...:

Why Obama's coalition is unraveling (Lloyd Green, June 08, 2012, FoxNews.com)

In 2008, Barack Obama won by assembling what has been called an "Upstairs Downstairs" coalition. Wealthy whites and lower-income minority voters brought Obama first across the finish line. Four years later, Obama's 2008 coalition does not appear to be holding. The question is whether it will implode by Election Day.

Earlier this week, Gallup released a summary of its polling results for mid-May onward which pegged the presidential race as a 46-46 dead heat. The numbers beneath the numbers showed that Mitt Romney holds roughly a 4-point lead among middle income voters, a 4-point lead among the upper middle income voters ($90,000-$179,999) and an 11-point lead among those with incomes exceeding $180,000. Middle and upper-income America is beginning to wave goodbye to the president. His appeal to middle-class voters is falling flat.

Among white voters, the numbers are even starker. The president is trailing by 19 points among middle-income whites and is down by 14 points among higher income whites.

...single women, blacks, and Jews.
