In his June 23 Newsmax column, "Obama's Numbers Plunge as He Drowns in Oil," Dick Morris claims:
Drowning in oil, the Obama administration is pulling out all the stops to halt the hemorrhaging of liberal support which is driving his ratings down to the low 40s — previously unexplored territory.
Obama has already lost all the Republicans and almost all of the independents. But he has kept his head above water with the solid support of liberal Democrats and African-Americans. But now that the Gulf oil spill enters its eighth week, with no sign of abating, he is shedding Democrats.
Er, not so much. As Jamison Foser details, Obama's overall poll numbers in the past month show neither any "hemmorhaging" nor any significant "shedding" of Democrats.
