Two new polls are out and they both have ominous news for President Obama.
Botton Line: The President is losing his base -- his bedrock constituency.
First, a poll by the American Jewish Committee shows support for President Obama among Jews has actually dipped below 50%. That's startling when you consider that a huge majority of Jews identify themselves as liberal Democrats. Obama's support in the Jewish community is now 45%. Ominous.
Second, Obama has slipped below 50% in NEW YORK STATE -- one of the bluest, most liberal states in the nation. In New York Obama poll 47%. Ominous.
There's still a l-o-n-g way to go but right now the signs do not look good for the president.
