(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) -- Tennessean’s view President Barack Obama’s job performance divide on race and sex lines, according to a Vanderbilt University poll.
The Tennessean reports that women in Tennessee are more likely than men to approve of Obama’s job as president. The poll found that African-Americans are more than twice as likely as whites to approve of Obama’s performance in office.
The opposite trends hold true for Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, Obama’s likely opponent. Romney gains more support for Tennessee men and twice as much whites than African-Americans in the state.
