Skip to comments.Preference cascade: How solid are Obama’s favorability numbers? ("old" article)

I wonder about the validity of these sorts of numbers:
While rising 14 points since February, Romney still trails the president, who currently has a 56% favorable rating, with 42% saying they hold an unfavorable opinion of Obama. The presidents favorable and unfavorable ratings are unchanged from CNN polls in March and April.
The biggest gap between Obama and Romneys favorable ratings is among younger Americans. More than two-thirds of those under 30 have a favorable view of Obama, compared to only four-in-ten who feel that way about Romney. Romney is much stronger among senior citizens, but the gap is not nearly as big," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "Romney may have a small advantage among independent voters, but that is offset by his lower favorable rating among Republicans than Obama has among Democrats."
A couple of things how strong, really, is Obamas favorable ratings among a demographic scared to death of being called a racist if they happen to have an unfavorable view of our first black president? Thats a legitimate question.
Old folks, for the most part, dont give a damn about that and may more closely mirror the real feelings out in fly over land. .....

I also learned the new (to me) catch word, "preference cascade".
When we learned about advertising in eighth grade, it was called "bandwagon."
It is interesting that Barry went against the only thing holding him up during the last debate - his âlikability.â He is literally submarining his own best polling attribute. Of course he was showing who he really is.
Rock the Vote and XBox have a poll on the Microsoft XBox network that Romney is currently winning.
