Amid slipping democratic voter support, President Barak Obama went back on the campaign trail for the first time since 2008. After campaigns in Delaware, Massachusetts and Ohio, Obama will be heading West to Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Minneapolis.
It seems like this time his road will be much bumpier though. Up to 25% of the voters that made him the President, are seriously considering going Republican. Given that he is in a tough spot, sorting the mess from the Wild Wild West era with Texas cowboy and such, he might have done a few mistakes himself, that he is paying for now. Trying to be the center player and the pacifier, seemed to annoy and polarize both Republicans and Democrats.
Of course we can blame notorious Republican KKK-mart, which is furious seeing a brother at the helm and using every opportunity to lynch him, but it doesn’t explain why his own camp is not feeling much love either. It is already clear that Obama’s half way messages and measures to soldiers overseas that are supposed to be home, gays that still neither can tell nor marry, and millions of Americans without jobs and health insurance will take a toll at the polls.
