The headline reads “Obama losing some support among nervous Dems”. Fair enough, but I found the following paragraph to be very interesting.
“In Missouri, which Obama narrowly lost to McCain, Democratic strategist Steve Glorioso said hardcore base voters were as enthusiastic as ever for Obama but that there was a sense of disappointment about him among less committed Democrats and independents.”
So the dyed-in-the-wool Dems are still rah-rah-rah for their guy, but the shine has worn off for independents and “less committed” Democrats.
Look at it like this. True Conservatives will always balk at Obama because of his statist policies. Those who drank the Liberal kool-aide will always love their guy no matter what.
That means the phrase “less committed Democrats and independents” actually refers to just about everyone who might change their minds. Right?
