Black enthusiasm for Obama loses steam

Some African Americans say US president has not done enough for their community, but will still back him in election.

    Four years after African-American voters turned out in record numbers to back Barack Obama for the presidency, support among the minority group still runs high, but their enthusiasm for the leader appears to have lost much of its steam. 

    Some black voters, including those in the swing state of Florida, say Obama has done more for the wealthy elite than African Americans and the working class during his term in office.
