President Obama’s base of support remains solid heading into 2012
Everyone knows that President Obama has a problem with his political base heading into 2012. Except that he doesn't.
One of the most persistent story lines for the president has been that the liberal left has grown increasingly dissatisfied with his actions (or inaction) on some of its priorities including single-payer health insurance, the extension of the George W. Bush tax cuts and whether to close the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
But an examination of the polling data among key subgroups that constitute Obama's base makes clear that he has as much support from them as any modern president seeking a second term.
