you made more head way than you think.

He said President Obama was "Okay." Then, when you addressed his first "concern", he accepted it and moved to his next "real reason."

But to answer your question, you get through to them by taking the time to talk with them (not at them) and explain how their choices are likely to affect them personally. For example, explaining the benefits of (President) Obama's Health Plan and how people that have had their jobs shipped overseas are unlikely to have someone else edge their lawns.
