Turn around is fair play. If it is fair to point out that polls showed Romney doing poorly with blacks to diminish him...then it is fair to show polls showing Obama doing poorly with non-blacks to diminish him.


Why does Obama have just a 39% approval rating (well below George W Bush at the moment) among all non-blacks?

Why does this contrast so sharply with blacks that have Obama's disapproval ratings in the single digits?

Why does Obama have just a 37% approval rating (well below George W Bush at the moment) among Independents?

Why does Obama's approval numbers perform the worst among the middle class and have higher approval ratings with the poor and then the rich?

I don't see how it diminished him, please provide where it was stated this was done to diminish him, but to be president you need enough of the population to vote for you over the other guy. If he doesn't get the votes, he doesn't get the office. Is a lesson in elementary school civics needed here?

That's called reporting facts and reality. Reporting only the good news, and keeping the bad news from being reported, is biased propaganda. Are you really advocating that news entities should have selectively edited the news just to help Romney?

How did polls showing Romney doing poorly with the black community "diminish" him?

It's no surprise that Democrats have issues with the white vote.

There were posters on here, TV personalities, liberal coworkers all happy to point out Romney's poll numbers struggled with black voters = Romney is someway bad.

The fact that Obama's job performance struggles with so many groups - does that not equal something bad?

Obama's overall job approval according to RCP (which is the only poll I trust) is almost even at 47% approve, and 47.6 disapprove.
