New Poll Shows Obama Leading in TX, OK
The People's Cube ^ | 9-10-12 | Opiate of the People

Posted on 09/15/2012 9:04:33 PM PDT by ReformationFan

A new survey conducted by the NY Times, MSNBC and the DNC shows, for the first time, President Barack Obama taking the lead in the battle-ground states of Texas and Oklahoma.

The poll of 1,000 likely adults* conducted in the days following the inspiring Democrat National Convention shows Obama ahead 52-48 in Oklahoma and 53-47 in Texas.

Both candidates have seen their images improve with these generally backward voters in the wake of their respective party conventions. Obama is now at break-even in his approval rating at 48% after being below par at 46/51 a month ago. Romney's numbers are up from a 41/52 favorability last month as well, but he still remains unpopular. Only 44% see him favorably to 49% with a negative opinion. Romney failed to get much of a bounce due to the overt racism and lack of diversity at the GOP convention.

Romney leads 46-44 with the 15 independents we sampled but Obama has the overall advantage thanks to a more unified party base. He leads 99/1 with Democrats, compared to Romney's 60/40 advantage with Republicans. Obama's advantage within his own party is up from 70 points a month ago, suggesting that his party has wised up and coalesced around him in the wake of a awesomely successful convention and a realization of what horror a Romney presidency would bring. By a 60/40 margin voters say they think the Democrats, as usual, had a better, more tolerant and diverse convention than the Republicans.

Despite hateful, racist propaganda that Obama's convention speech was not up to his normal, extremely high standards, voters say by a 60-31 margin that Obama gives better speeches than Romney and is better in bed as well. Obama's position is also helped by the fact that the folks who gave the major convention speeches at the DNC are more popular than those who did so for the GOP: Bill Clinton has a 57/34 favorability rating and Michelle Obama's is 57/35 while Paul Ryan is at 30/60 and Clint Eastwood 25/65, although Mr. Eastwood did hold an advantage among those who work in the furniture industry.

Romney's wife is one of his few assets: 54% of voters see Ann Romney favorably with 28% holding an unfavorable opinion. But Mrs. Obama wins out in the more popular wife category by a 59/41 margin with 60/30 saying she is more intelligent and 65/25 saying she is more attractive than Mrs. Romney. Mrs. Romney clearly loses points for being a stay-at-home, corporate, trophy wife who, unlike the first lady, cares little for anyone but herself.

It's impossible to see a path to victory for Mitt Romney without Texas and Oklahoma. President Obama must now be viewed as not only a lock for a second term, but could possibly become the first presidential candidate to win all 538 electoral votes and gain an electoral college shut out over his opponent.

*No attempt to identify the party affiliations of the respondents was made, we simply kept calling people until we got the answers we wanted.

Really!

Tell me again that Texans and Okies are dying to see another round of Barry- only blacks and illegals I'm betting.

You almost gave me a heart attack! I looked for the satire tag and thought this had to be a bunch of trash... until I read the final line.

As an Okie, one of the things I’m most proud of is the fact that we are the only state in which dear leader did not carry a single county. I expect the same this time around.

They’ll produce these polls at the rate of one or two per hour if they have to. They did it during Herman Cain’s troubles, and they did it at crucial points of the Clinton experience.

Poll after poll after poll, every one showing that a (slim) majority of Americans approves of whatever agenda the default media is pushing.

If this happens and Romney loses Texas I would never follow politics again.

You got me.

I did read the last line. I thought it was part of a straight story. It didn’t strike me as obviously ironic, at first.

The news here reminds me of Bagdad Bob:

“I am saying Saddam’s support is 100% or higher from the Iraqi people. It might be 110 or 120 percent.”

New Poll sponsored by Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin shows Obama leading in New York & California

Freepers claim they oversampled Black Jewish Lesbian Democrats on a Saturday Night and Romney is really ahead in these states and Rush is a RINO who has been turning leftward for a while now.

The $64 question is what are you people going to do when the communists steal this election? The way they have loaded election boards, I wouldn't be surprized if even Oklahoma goes Democrat.

Remember that Stalin pointed to the Ultimate Reality.
"I consider it completely unimportant who in the party will vote, or how; but what is extraordinarily important is this — who will count the votes, and how." (The actual quote.)

Can any Dim actually justify their frantic struggle to stop or deflect Voter ID? They keep screeching about there is no such thing as "voter fraud" and that the poor fuzzies can't afford free ID, and that it's all a racist plot.

Since they are dims, and Holy Mother Party is the Revealed Truth, these limp, sorry excuses are Gospel.

War is coming. Are the ditches going to be filled with conservative bodies or communists?

Oklahoma was the only state in which Obama lost every single county last time around. From what I see, he has less support this time.

Louisiana, Arkansas and Utah ahead of Oklahoma in conservatism? That poll is about as good as the one in this article.

Arkansas reeks with tree huggers and libs. Especially since Sam Walton died and left NW Arkansas to his previously restrained minions.

Louisiana does not count since it is a third world nation.

Utah is in a class alone but not because it is conservative.

The headline alone was enough to ensure me this was satire.

Not a single county pulled the lever for the Kenyan Marxist in OK.

I don’t think any other state in the union got a 100% on that test.

Maybe OK won’t be alone this time.

OHhhhhhhh Nooooooooooooo, It could be true.. Here in Sugar Land, Texas the land of likes of Tom DeLay, has seen it's Conservative credentials lose it's glimmer since Tom lost on Dancing With The Stars..

We have been in a free fall.. Obamby lost by 88-12 last cycle.. However, in a recent Poll (Republicans for Fairness) released last night, he now has soared to a lead 98-1, with one undecided..

Republicans need Dancing lessons, IMHO, we have little chance of recovering until we dance a lot better.. yeap.. :(
