Poll: Obama vs. Romney a 'toss-up' in Arizona (ASU Poll)
Merrill/Morrison Institute ^ | April 23, 2012 | Staff

Posted on 04/24/2012 6:25:16 AM PDT by C19fan

With the 2012 presidential election just over six months away, the latest statewide Merrill/Morrison Institute poll found that Arizonans are evenly divided on whom they will support in November.

According to the poll of 488 registered voters, 42 percent said they would vote for former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, while 40 percent said they would support President Barack Obama and 18 percent were undecided. Because the poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percent, if the election were held today the contest for Arizona’s 11 electoral votes would be a “toss up.”

However, the huge illegal alien vote will go to the Dems.

Irrespective of Romney, a poll of registered voters with 18% undecided doesn’t tell us much, IMHO.

This is a bleeding heart/commie lib “poll” from ASU. I wouldn’t put too much stock in their results.

If Obama, the incumbent, is only getting 40% in this poll, he is toast in Arizona. The headline sensationalizes a dismal number (40%) for the most well known incumbent in the world.

See, Romney is no good. Write in Palin and give the country what it deserves, four more years of Obama!

"Poll: Obama vs. Romney a 'toss-up' in Arizona (ASU Poll)"

Ha! Of course it's a 'toss-up' between obomba and romney. Most Arizonans and Americans alike cannot see a difference between the two despite how many times the state run media tells us differently. Spin as they will the state run media and obombney's shills cannot excape either's record.

Plus the sample is less than half the size of many polls.

They may not have restricted the "registered voters" to people registered to vote in the US. Given that this was taken in Arizona, some of them could be Mexicans registered to vote in Mexico.

This election is going to be a wipeout of historic proportions. It’s beyond words how overmatched Romney is.

Nice going, GOP.

If these polling numbers are in this range a week before the Election, Obama will lose AZ in a landslide. 75%, or better, of undecideds always go for the challenger in the voting booth.

I was driving to work and saw this new bumper sticker on a Mercedes ML 350 with a GOP2012 bumper sticker in the Zero colors and font. Below it was smaller lettered “Guaranteed Obama Presidency”.

Let me emphasize again.....LOOK AT THE NUMBER OF “UNDECIDEDS”. After 3 years, people don’t know if they’re going to vote for Obozo???? The “Undecided” number always tells the story. They always go for the challenger on Election Day. if these numbers hold up, Romney will take AZ in a landslide.

Happily, an ID is required at the polling station to vote here in AZ. What needs to be done is a massive reregistration with a proof of citizenship needed to register. That is the only way we will know that citizens are the only ones allowed to decide the future of our once great country.

Nevertheless, I am still going to sit outside my polling place wearing a Border Patrol hat.

You CANNOT do that! It's provocative and intimidating, you will be arrested!!

The only thing you can do at the polling place is be a peacekeeper.

The battleground is going to be much different this time around. The republicans have a candidate that is appealing to republican moderates, but repulsive to evangelicals. I could see a state like Pennsylvania going with Romney while a state like Georgia falling to Zero.

According to the poll of 488 registered voters,...

Registered Voter polls always favor the Dems and are less accurate that the traditional Likely Voter polls. Give Romney a few extra points and you will be closer to the truth.

It’s too early to know how any state is going to go.

Obambi hasn’t unleashed Axelrod and his attack dogs yet.

And will the GOP-E be able to reign in Romney’s propensity for gaffes and missteps?
What we saw in the primary is just a taste of the real Mittens.
He is one unlikable, nasty dude...and it remains to be seen if he can cover that up to translate into votes for him (or votes against O).

Any other Dem would obliterate Mittens in the general...but he just may luck out facing the Muslim Usurper.

Then the GOP-E and Karl Rove will strut like peacocks, claiming responsibility for the win. It’ll be sickening, trust me.

I’m not just referring to Arizona. There’s a whole host of swing states the GOP MUST win... and so far that isn’t the case.

People who think this poll is accurate should be reminded that ASU is the proud home of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism. Looking carefully at this poll just shows that liberals “good news of the day” is that Obama will only lose Arizona by 8-12 points.

He will lose by much more than that. He sued our state, his Justice Department is going after our immensely popular Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and he still refuses to close our border with Mexico. As Mom used to say, his name is mud here.

Registered Voters? 18% undecided? What a joke. Obama will lose Arizona by 10-15%. Bet on it!
