Gravis Marketing has conducted a poll of likely voters in the State of Ohio. The questions covered the presidential and senate elections. We show President Barack Obama at 45.2% and Governor Mitt Romney at 44.3%. The Senate race shows Senator Brown with a 3.9% lead over Josh Mandel.
Multiple Ohio polls have been released in the last week, all showing President Obama with a lead. The lead ranges anywhere from 7% with Fox News, while Rasmussen and ARG have Obama with a 1% point lead, similar to the poll that we conducted.
One thing that stood out in this poll: Obama has a 12% lead in personal likability over Romney. The upcoming debates could be a deciding factor in the race.
Gravis Marketing Polls are conducted through automated phone calls, the poll is of likely voters in the state of Ohio. Gravis Marketing is a non-partisan company, located in Winter Springs, Florida.
D - 41.4 %
R - 31.1 %
I - 27.5 %
I’m liking this! Obama only polling 45% 40 days out spells epic disaster!!
Ten percent more Democrats (41%) than Republicans. LoL
Did you see that the poll was over sample of Ds of 10.3% and 43% of the responders were 50 and over?
And they oversampled Commies by 10 points..Romney is winning Ohio, maybe Dick Morris isn’t much of a goofball after all..these polls are all going on the 2008 model, its NOT going to be like that this time around
Romney must be raking in the indies in OH.
That means the results of this poll are statistically insignificant.
Except even 2008 wasn’t D+10, it was D+8.
2008 had D+8 and > 45 years old = 56%.
What is the state break down in comparison?
My thoughts exactly, tatown.
Does someone want to explain to me how this means Obama is in the lead, razor-thin or otherwise?
I have heard +5 Dem
This certainly doesn’t fit the Mainstream Media/MediaMatters-approved narrative, now does it!
Independent voters already made up their mind, if they were going to vote for Obama they would have done it already. The ones who are on the fence are the ones that just need to learn a little more about Romney(At the debates) before they officially become Romney supporters. Undecided voters will also go for Romney because they have already seen the disaster which is the Obama Presidency
Polling experts claim a +5 Democrat advantage in Ohio. No way you can justify a +10 sample in Ohio. Basically this means Obama is behind in Ohio
Ohhh what happened to that huge Obama lead in Ohio?
They have a 95% confidence interval on +/-4.3 percent and they report 3 SIGNIFICANT DIGITS? Seriously? Did no one ever teach these clowns about significant digits. Wow.
