Lackluster Election Enthusiasm Could Hurt Both Obama And Romney

ElectionEnthusiasm

A new poll from NBC News and the Wall Street Journal shows that voter enthusiasm has dropped considerably since 2008 historic election, and that could mean trouble for both President Obama and rival Mitt Romney.

There are red flags for the Obama campaign, considering Latinos and young voters appear to be among the least enthused so far and down in big numbers from 2008.

And there are things for the Romney campaign to look at, particularly when it comes to white-working class and blue-collar voters. Romney wins both by double-digits in the latest NBC/WSJ poll — white working class 58-31%, blue collar 48-37% — but their enthusiasm is low as well.

These guys are going to have a long, hot summer as they hustle to bolster their respective bases. Whether those bases respond remains to be seen, of course.

  1. Grasping at straws. Conservatives who dislike Obama are biting at the bit and banging against the stall walls waiting for the gate to be lifted up.

  2. Most of those changes in interest are pretty small, except for African Americans, Latinos and young people. They are the groups most likely to suffer the consequences if the "wrong" candidate wins. Go figure.

  3. The included post-grads but not the gays? Does it mean their votes are insignificant?

  4. ILLEGAL ALIENS WILL BE ARRIVING HERE IN THE MILLIONS FOR FREE HEALTH CARE.

    HERE is a summary of the Constitutional TEA PARTY ideology, which from its inception has advocated a halt to illegal immigration that Democrats, Liberals or Republicans pay lip service too. Since the 1986 fraudulent amnesty illegal immigrants and migrants has poured into America, through a border that still remains porous. The television broadcasts of CNN, ABC and other stations always show the huge steel reinforced fences between Mexico and the United States. This is misleading as further along the demarcation between two countries, there is nothing more than a few thin strands of rusty barbed wire. Go to ‘AMERICAN PATROL, to be enlightened about the true length of the border fence and other details. For every Democrat, Liberal or Republican incumbent in office, we need to replace with a honest fresh face TEA PARTY leadership. We must stop President Obama’s ‘Tax and spend” epidemic or Mitt Romney potential to press for better advantages for Wall Street and financial institutions.

    Just today with the stunning news the Supreme Court in supporting ObamaCare, could be yet another nail in America’s economic coffin. This is going to further encourage illegal alien absconders from poverty stricken countries, to bring their sick by international flight or through state borders ; people needing FREE treatment as an appendicitis to major surgeries, will arrive here and because of federal mandates American taxpayers will be further raped to pay for these unfunded mandates. Millions will try to slip through our Borders or fly into America, because of the Democrats and it’s financially in our laps.

    IT is the Time of the PEOPLE’S PARTY. It is the time for the moderate TEA PARTY, not the far left or right. The TEA PARTY is complimented by man/women; African, White, Hispanic, Asian and other Americans of different nationalities. The TEA PARTY is a wealth of different religions, faiths, gay and ordinary people of every walk of life. Remember a large perpetual majority who votes for President Obama for a second term could are most liable none citizens or American citizens who spend their days watching TV, selling drugs, couch potatoes, collecting public assistance, food stamps and living off the rest of us as parasites. These are the people who want something for nothing. THE TEA PARTY BELIEVES IN INDIVIDUAL CHOICE, NOT RELYING ON GOVERNMENT FOR EVERYTHING. Illegal aliens don’t just come here for jobs but to pilfer state treasuries because elected officials have allowed this to happen. As an example of states in big trouble every month the Sanctuary State of California--as just naming one haven has a deficit of $15.7 Billion dollars, with over $1 billion dollars annually soaked up by illegal alien welfare and rising.

    The exception is the sick and true disabled human beings, so think of their dilemma that taxpayer money should be assisting citizens, instead of illegal aliens. If you are frustrated with feeding the rest of the world, unable to get a decent job then join the TEA PARTY. The controversial immigration debate and the problems it has brought; it is a theft of your taxes. Obama’s new the rules and regulations have been forced on American with its so called ‘Political Correctness’ along with its growing taint of a growing Socialism agenda impregnating young minds in the schools and universities. President Obama has placed obstacles to halt the extraction of valuable energy resources in a time of urgent need. This administration has squashed efforts to extract oil, natural gas and coal; that we could lower the expenditure from transportation and we could sell residual amounts to friendly foreign countries. The progressive’s zealots in the environmentalist world have stopped the laying of oil pipelines from Canada to Texas, when America could be self sufficient and not relying on Saudi Arabia, and other foreign potentates. Shouldn’t we become a creditor again, instead of a debtor to China and other investing countries?

    This is the time when every American who believes in the ‘Rule of Law’ and steps forward to let their Senator or Congress person knows how you will vote. Bombard politician’s aide, that you insist the lawmaker sponsor E-Verify and the Birthright Citizenship bill (H.R.140). NEITHER PARTY DOESN’T SEEM TO CARE THAT THIS COUNTRY IS BEING OVERWHELMED BY THE POVERTY FROM SOUTH OF THE BORDER, BUT ALSO A MAGNET TO MILLIONS OF PREGNANT WOMEN WHO ONCE ARRIVE HERE CAN STEAL THE WELFARE OF AMERICAN FAMILIES. ONCE SMUGGLED THROUGH THE BORDER OR STEP OF A PLANE, 400.000 ILLEGAL ALIEN MOTHERS ANNUALLY CAN REAP THE REWARDS OF CRIMINALLY ENTERING THE UNITED STATES. THIS PUBLIC HELP SHOULD BE GOING TO OUR OWN CITIZENS NOT TO EDUCATE FOREIGN CHILDREN ORE FREE MEDICAL CARE, THAT TAXPAYERS EVENTUALLY RECEIVE THE BILL.

    Citizen voters should phone Congress at the central Switchboard at 202-224-3121. Insist YOUR CONGRESSPERSON TO accomplish their obligation to the oath of office and stop rewarding the businesses that use cheap labor or the pro-illegal alien lawmakers that are desperate for votes, no matter illegal or legal. By only voting for those who favor the TEA PARTY ideology is the veil of corruption going to be lifted from American politics. Use the power of your VOTE to demand politicians sponsor good policies or we are destined to become like Europe, besieged by the poverty from other countries.
