Melissa Harris-Perry: "I believe much of that decline can be attributed to their disappointment that choosing a black man for president did not prove to be salvific for them or the nation. His record is- at the very least- comparable to that of President Clinton- who was enthusiastically re-elected. The 2012 election is a test of whether Obama will be held to standards never before imposed on an incumbent. If he is- it may be possible to read that result as the triumph of a more subtle form of racism."
