    87% of liberals support this President. If someone claims they are a liberal, and they say they aren't supporting this President, then that puts them in the 13% category. Nowhere near "all of  us".

      What I am trying to say is t that controversial and is far more mundane than what you are understanding I think.  

      We all have a limit to the right of which we won't support a candidate. As you note, Obama is on the right side of the line for 87% but that doesn't mean that that 87% would not support a more conservative candidate if the candidate were the democratic nominee.  "all of us" does t mean that all liberals don't support Obama but that we all have a "too far to the right" line somewhere.  If we didn't that'd mean people voting for Bush (D)

      Put another way. We all have limits, they're just in different place

      I am in the 87%
