CNN Poll: Obama's Support Drops Among Blue-Collar Democrats

Wednesday, 23 November 2011 02:59 PM

President Barack Obama’s support among blue-collar Democrats has slipped, with half saying they’d like to see someone else head the ticket in 2012. However, the president’s overall approval rating remains steady, hovering in the mid-40 percent since June, a new CNN/ORC International poll shows.

Even though it is unlikely that any serious Democratic challenger to Obama will emerge, 26 percent of Democrats said they would prefer another nominee, an eight-point jump since October. Regardless, 72 percent of Democrats still support Obama, according to the results of the Nov. 18-20 poll of 1,019 adults.

"The biggest change comes among white Democrats with no college education, a group typically considered the core of the party's blue-collar constituency," CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said. "Half of all white Democrats with no college education say they don't want President Obama heading their party's ticket next year."

Obama’s appeal to blue-collar whites has been limited. During the Democratic primaries, they threw their support to then-Sen. Hillary Clinton. In the general election, they backed Sen. John McCain by an 18-point margin, CNN reported.
