Zogby: Obama Losing Youth Vote

This is critical material from today's Zogby Poll that shows John McCain five percentage points ahead of Obama. Zogby says:

"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.“There were no wild swings, there isn’t one group that is radically different than last month or even two months ago. It was just a steady decline for Obama across the board,” Zogby said. Obama’s support among voters between the ages of 18 and 29, which had been one of his strengths, slipped 12 percentage points to 52 percent. McCain, who will turn 72 next week, was winning 40 percent of younger voters.

"It made little difference when independent candidate Ralph Nader and Libertarian Party candidate Bob Barr, who are both trying to add their names to state ballots.McCain still held a 5-point edge over Obama, 44 percent to 39 percent, when all four names were included. Barr earned 3 percent and Nader 2 percent."

Obviously, the public is waking up to the fact that Barack Hussein Obama is inexperienced, unqualified, untrustworthy, and dangerous. In the eyes of many people, yesterday's silver-tongued orator is today's windbag.
