Obama's support from whites without a college degree hits new low

Gallup- President Barack Obama's job approval rating among white non-college graduates is at 27% so far in 2014, 14 percentage points lower than among white college graduates. This is the largest yearly gap between these two groups since Obama took office. These data underscore the magnitude of the Democratic Party's problem with working-class whites, among whom Obama lost in the 2012 presidential election, and among whom Democratic House candidates lost in the 2014 U.S. House voting by 30 points.

They're apparently better able to spot an oreo dud than their better-educated peers.

(Sam, you need to change to a different Captcha implementation. The completely distorted images are of non-words, which make them impossible for even a human to decipher. I have to rotate through anything up to a dozen such images before I can find one where I can guess what the letters probably are.)
