sit here sat there in BWI airport; lurking around the internet at 2:00am I ran across a tell tale sign that Obama might be slipping out of relevance for younger voters. The photo here copares the facebook pages:
andI Will Vote for Obama in 2012
All I have to say is, “Score board” and Rasmussen Reports seems to agree. President Obama swept America away on an emotional tide of change, but all he really did was dig a trench between her people. President Obama is having trouble getting the support of his friends because they are starting to see through the smoke and mirrors to the heart of his act, which is nothing short of communism and a vast collection of government mandates.
Since I initially posted this article the numbers have changed drastically, the nobama group is now at over 680,000 where as the probama group is only at a little more than 120,000. However another interesting turn of events the probama group has been advertising outside of the US to try and compete for numbers with the nobama group. The ads below were being served in the Philippines via Facebook during my most recent trip to see my son.
Facebook seems to agree with my assessment a public forum that is usually filled with Obama support can’t even muster
1/5th 1/6th of the numbers as the anti-Obama counter part. I predicted this trend here several weeks ago when I discussed how Republicans were winning the share of voice in trending Google searches. People are tired of Obama, and your die hard liberal Democrat supporters are of course going to vote for him, but Obama should be very worried about those folks in the middle. Gay marriage, Socialist medicine, anti religious freedom the list goes on and on… He’s setting fire to all of his bridges, and if he’s not careful it is going to cost him this election, but he seems content at the moment to advocate for higher taxes on the rich while simultaneously courting the mega rich for campaign funds.
If you look at the arguments set forth by these two competing Facebook groups above one thing stands out. The pro Obama group whines A LOT just look at their opening argument. “Ever since he took office he has had everything thrown at him” Duh! He is the president. It’s in the job description, no excuses. In sharp contrast we have this from the anti Obama group,
“Our objections to Obama for president are political and ideological — not race. With that said, keep our discussions civil and on message. We’ll try our best to block/ban any user that is racist or uses violent, angry, aggressive rhetoric towards other persons. Thank you.”
Much more adult and mature.
I believe we will see this trend continue and I think “I will not vote for Obama in 2012” will reach 1 million soon. The other group may never. I hope you will join me in liking the page because if we move any further forward with change we will fall off of a cliff. Nobama.
