Common Sense Look at the Presidential Race

July 9, 2012 in News

Host Terry Rauch explains why he thinks Obama won’t win the upcoming elections. He credits his “gut” instinct and news reports to his thinking.

Not one American who voted for McCain four years ago will switch to Obama: But many millions of people who voted for an unknown Obama four years ago are angry, disillusioned, turned off, or scared about the future. Obama supporters will either switch or sit on their hands. Just like 4 years ago, when people who didn’t like either candidate sat on their hands.

Black voters: Obama has nowhere to go but down among this group. His endorsement of gay marriage has alienated many black church-going Christians. (have you notice Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have been very quite about Obama’s re-election bid?)

Hispanic voters: If Romney picks Rubio as his VP running-mate, he’ll pick up the Hispanic votes. Not just in Florida but all southern states. (yes, California too) Hispanic voters are typically conservative and family oriented in their thinking. Rubio is a very common sense thinker.

Jewish voters: Obama has been weak in his support of Israel. Many Jewish voters and big donors are angry and disappointed.

Youth voters: Obama’s biggest and most enthusiastic believers from four years ago have graduated into a job market from hell. Young people are disillusioned, frightened, and broke, a bad combination. The enthusiasm is long gone.

Catholic voters: Obama won a majority of Catholics in 2008. That won’t happen again. Out of desperation to please women, Obama went to war with the Catholic Church over contraception. Now, he is being sued by the Catholic Church.
(Catholic church has said: you have awoken a sleeping giant by attacking our 1st amendment right)

Women: The issue isn’t contraception. It’s having a job to pay for contraception. They are worried about putting food on the table. They fear for their children’s future.

Small Business owners: Voted for Obama four years ago to give someone different a chance. He has support unions over the private sector in a big way . . . by overwhelm the economy with spending and debt. Business owners are scared of him and want him out of office.

Blue collar working class: (everyday worker) 35% of Americans are either out of work or have quit looking for work. They have lost their homes and the things they enjoyed in life. They’re not going to vote for Obama.

Military Veterans: Have no use for Obama.

The Unions: Once a fighting and financial support to the Obama campaign but the President hasn’t been around to bail them out when they were in trouble. The unions are falling apart, going bankrupt, losing ground in many states. I really doubt their members will support him in the upcoming election.

Think about it: Is there one major group where Obama has gained popularity since 2008?

What do you think?
