All mentioned polls are from The Quinnipiac University Poll.
Candidate Barack Obama won the State of New Jersey with 97% of the Black vote, while just 3% of Black voters supported another candidate (according to a October 21, 2008 poll); those results should not be surprising to anyone - considering 95% of Black Americans supported the Obama campaign nationwide, while just 4% supported the McCain campaign.
However, according to some recent data from the State of New Jersey (which has a Republican Governor today), Obama's most supportive base during the 2008 Presidential Election, doesn't support him like they use to in October of 2008, and in fact, oppose him by record numbers.

President Obama received the vote of 97% of Black Jersey Voters in November of 2008, but he's now lost close to 20% of those voters by June of 2010, and that is without a serious problem on either side with one another, unless of course you're talking about ideology.
Americans are becoming more Conservative in this Nation - regardless of race, sex, or economic class. And I believe the above mentioned approval/disapproval numbers speak volumes to that assumption, especially since three dozen Black politicos were or are running for the Republican Nomination in numerous districts across America: unheard of since the late 1800's.
New Jersey elected the first Conservative Governor during the Obama Administration (thanks in part to the Obama Effect), could it also be the State that first detects the Conservative shift in Black Americans? We shall see in the coming months, and years, but I think the answer to that question is - yes.
