Obama: The Highest Marks From the Lowest Earners


Month in, month out, Barack Obama knows he has certain demographics he knows he can count on: “Despite the broad changes in President Obama’s overall job approval rating since he became president, certain subgroups of the population have consistently rated him better than others, and these patterns continued in March. Blacks, Hispanics, women, 18- to 29-year-olds, Easterners, postgraduates, Americans earning less than $24,000 per year, and those who don’t regularly attend a place of worship all show higher support for Obama than their counterparts …”

How lucky for the president that the demographic of those making $24,000 per year or less is booming under his economic policies!
