Fool me once, shame on you … fool me twice, shame on me.

That’s what the original Grandma used to say.

I have yet to run into anyone who says they voted for McCain in ‘08 but are voting for Obama in ‘12.

But, I’ve had several folks tell me they voted for Obama in ‘08, but are pulling the lever for Romney next Tuesday.

The Wash Post did an analysis of 16% of Obama’s ‘08 supporters who are jumpin’ ship.

The loyalists are the expected: liberal Democrats, blacks and Hispanics.

The jumpers are also the usual suspects: Conservatives & Republicans who bought the hype; Evangelicals, and men – especially white ones..

Perhaps, the bigger point is that Obama drew 52.9% of the vote in 2008.

If 16% desert him, he’s down to under 45%.
