Herman Cain trumps Mitt Romney in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup, a new IBOPE Zogby Interactive survey finds, and he continues to lead the GOP field
(Excerpt) Read more at zogby.com ...
I feel as though I am living simultaniously in two parallel universes. In one, in every serious poll I see, Cain is leading. In the other, every time the main media discusses the election they call Romney the front runner.
Which is it?
19% for Romney? He’s beginning to drop below his solid 25% of backers who stuck with him no matter whether Bachmann, Perry or Cain was attracting the not-Romney vote.
"Milt Romney's trouncing in the IBOPE Zogby Poll (Cain 39, Romney 19), and
"Milt's tumble in latest CBS/NYT poll to Mr. Cain,
and Romney's recent collapsing loss to Mr Cain
in the 2012 Iowa Republican Caucus (Cain 28% Romney 21%)
means as little as Romney's plummeting career-ending loss to Mr. Cain
in the Newsmax poll (71% to 7% for Myth),
or Milt's shocking loss to Herman Cain in the PPP poll ,
or Milt's incredible 3 to 1 devastating loss to Herman Cain in Florida
or Romney's third place hopeless loss to Mr. Cain in the Presidential Straw Poll
of National Federation of Republican Women, or
even Romney's humiliating loss to Mr. Cain
in the October Newsmax/InsiderAdvantage poll,
or Romney's exsanguinating loss to Cain in the
Midwest Leadership Conference Straw Poll.
At the end of the the day, this will not matter to FOX News.
Never. No way. We are biased by, and for, the individuals we pimp.
From the desks of McGinniss and Ailes,
we at FOX News will continue to push
our Milt Romney on you as THE "leading candidate"
even when you know it is obviously not true."
..nuh-uh...tain’t true, tain’t true, tain’t true.
Cain “peaked” last week.
Their headline is misleading. In the head-to-head Cain vs. Romney, Cain trounces him 63-29.
Romney beats Perry 46-40.
In the primary poll, Cain leads with 39. Romney has lost a bit, so has Cain. Gingrich is the beneficiary there, doubling his support from 6% to 12%.
Before the “it’s an internet poll” people jump in...
It is an electronic poll, not an internet poll.
An internet poll is when someone puts up a surevey on a web page and ANYBODY can vote in it. They are notoriously unreliable (hence the reason Ron Paul keeps winning them, but never wins anything in the real world). This is not what Zogby is doing.
Zogby has fashioned a poll where predetermined people can vote online. Only those people, and only once. It is an attempt to get around current polling problems (fewer land line phones & inability to reach cell phone users) and bring polling into this century.
So far, this poll has been ahead of the other polls in noticing trends, but the trends seem to be exagerated.
If this poll says Cain is up and that Romney is now losing voters, that TREND is probably correct. How close the numbers are to reality is the question.
The important TREND from this poll is that, for the first time, Romney is LOSING voters, instead of maintaining his steady 25%.
wow! your right! I missed the bigger number in the head to head matchup ... wow Cain 63% Romney 29%
I agree, zogby is best for seeing early trends and for judging relative strength, but I wouldn’t focus to much on the exact percentages.
Exactly he is the MSM choice because they know if it is him versus Obama Obama wins another term.It also take away the race card and many other slights they throw at us....
This horse ain’t stalking.
When did Romney peak and then fade, Mr. Rove, you worm?
It’s more than that. If it is Mitt vs Zero, libs and media win either way.
I have participated in Zogby’s online poll for about 6 years. He asks all the questions to qualify you on how likely are you to vote. Then he asks if your in a union or if any member of your family is a union member. He ask whether you attend church. He asks if you are a Nascar fan and how often you shop at Walmart. These take 5-10 minutes to complete. They are a scientific poll. I believe they are much more accurate than any telephone poll.
These emails come to me about once every few weeks. I choose to participate. It is up to him to select the correct demographic percentages to make up the results.
I think the MSM would be just as happy with Rick Perry. But he keeps shooting himself in the foot.
Exactly right. I was invited to this poll. Anyone can get on the list. Just go to http://interactive.ibopezogby.com/pollregistration/registration/ and fill out the registration.
Think I'll do both.
