As overall approval rates for Obama decline, why do the majority of blacks still approve of him?

He is doing a horrible job in office. He bungles everything (Gulf, foreign policy, ticking off our allies, acting stupidly, Sherrod, porkulus, Obamacare)...the list is endless. http://www.gallup.com/poll/141725/Blacks-Whites-Continue-Differ-Sharply-Obama.aspx PRINCETON, NJ -- President Obama's job... show more He is doing a horrible job in office.

PRINCETON, NJ -- President Obama's job approval rating averaged 88% among blacks and 38% among whites in July, a 50-percentage-point difference that has been consistent in recent months but is much larger than in the initial months of the Obama presidency. Obama's job approval ratings among blacks, whites, and Hispanics in July are all at their lowest levels to date, although the overwhelming majority of blacks still approve.
