A new CNN poll has some disturbing news for President Obama, his approval numbers demonstrate strong racial polarization. 61 percent of whites disapprove of Obama and 67 percent of non-whites approve. There are many many reasons this is happening, many of which I cover in my book. But there is also a sense of buyer’s remorse among many independents who were willing to give Obama, marketed as a moderate, a chance. The moderate cloak was discarded and a extremist was revealed. The saddest part of these numbers is they prove what many have suspected for some time – we certainly haven’t entered a post-racial era. The contrary may be true.
