Posted on 08/15/2012 4:09:10 PM PDT by RobinMasters
Stay-at-home nonvoters are more likely to support President Barack Obama than Mitt Romney, according to a new USA Today/Suffolk University poll out today.
Eighty million Americans 40 percent of the possible eligible electorate wont vote this Election Day. And 59 percent of them say theres no point, since nothing ever gets done and politicians continue to make empty promises, according to the poll.
Forty-three percent of nonvoters are Obama supporters, the survey found, while 20 percent of the nonvoters support Romney, 18 percent back a third-party candidate and 15 percent are undecided.
This poll is a good news-bad news story for Barack Obama, poll director David Paleologos said in a statement. The good news is that there is a treasure chest of voters he doesnt even have to persuade they already like him and dislike Mitt Romney. He just needs to unlock the chest and get them out to vote. The bad news is that these people wont vote because they feel beaten down by empty promises, a bad economy and the negativity of both parties. Obama has lost time and the key to open that treasure chest.

He also leads among dead people.
800 voters, 28% consider themselves “conservative”...totally out of line with America.
They don’t sound all THAT uniformed. They believe that politicians make empty promises.
And aliens (both illegal and extraterrestrial).
Fooey. They don't vote because they're lazy. They just don't admit that to the pollsters.
That is why they want to making voting mandatory.
And the French.
He usually pulls in about 110% of the career Welfare Queens and other career non-wokers as well.
I'm not going to vote but I haven't yet decided who I am not going to vote for.
There is only one Poll that matters, and predictions have never been very accurate, no matter who or what they try to replicate the election to come.
Wanna bet he’s in the toilet with military veterans??

You writing for Politco now, John?
LOL. My favorite headline of the day.
The average Obama voter isn’t exactly the sharpest cookie in the tool shed;
