Today’s New Word: “Surreality”

This new word was inspired by a post from our guest, Paula.  It is a combination of the words “surreal” and “reality”.

sur-re-al – 1 : marked by the intense irrational reality of a dream

re-al-i-ty – 1 : the quality or state of being real

Sur-re-al-i-ty – 1: The sinking feeling one gets when communicating with a ranting evangelical that comes from the realization that they believe the falsehoods that their brain is manufacturing;  2: The tenets of the evangelical portion of the GOP.

Obama Losing the “Job Approval” Support of White People

Politico reports that this latest Gallup poll shows that Obama’s job approval among white people has dipped below 40%.  Previously his support among white voters was over 60%.  Black voters rate his job approval at about 90%.  His loss of support appears to be largely due to dropping support from white voters.

My question:  Does this racial breakdown really matter in any significant way?
