Pollster John Zogby: Obama Voters Are Crossing Over to Trump
NewsMax ^ | August 22, 2016 | Jason Devaney

A group of voters that once supported President George W. Bush before defecting to back President Barack Obama is once again switching sides and getting behind Donald Trump, pollster John Zogby told Newsmax TV Monday.

During an interview on "Newsmax Prime," Zogby told host J.D. Hayworth the race for the White House is "very, very close."

"What's very interesting here is that initially, weekly Wal-Mart shoppers who we have been tracking for a decade and a half now, and NASCAR fans, they were solidly with George W. Bush," said Zogby, whose most recent poll has Democrat Hillary Clinton leading Trump by 2 points.

"And then their demographics actually changed in the last seven or eight years following the recession. They were solidly with Barack Obama in 2008 and in 2012. They're swinging back now, back over to Donald Trump."(continued)

We all know that won’t matter since hildabama is ahead by at least 180%. That’s what the msm want you to believe.

Yeah, I think Zogby is full of it. I’ve never seen “NASCAR” and “Obama voter” in the same sentence. Ever.

Clinton is spending millions on ad's and is not pulling ahead of Trump.

This bodes very well for Trump who will start spending his money in Oct.

ZOGBY’S reputation is already on thin ice from the last election. He is protecting himself.

Voters are not getting behind Donald Trump ... they're getting WITH America !

Trump has his head screwed squarely on his shoulders, standing tall ...

He's a messenger and this is a movement and the commies will be driven out faster'n the Pied Piper can play or Patrick can pray !

I am SO excited for the USA !

With millions sure to participate in early voting in many states, he better spend well before then.

“...they were solidly with George W. Bush,” said Zogby,...

“And then their demographics actually changed in the last seven or eight years following the recession. They were solidly with Barack Obama in 2008 and in 2012.”

Bullcrap.

Awesome ! He said a lot of Bush supporters switched to Obama and are now headed back over to Trump. If that really is true we can expect a very big win !!!
