THUD: ABC/WAPO POLL SHOWS NO OBAMA BOUNCE AMONG LIKELY VOTERS
Big Government ^ | 9-11-12 | ELIZABETH SHELD

Posted on 09/11/2012 4:21:04 PM PDT by kingattax

Today, ABC News/Washington Post released a poll showing a virtual dead heat between Obama and Romney.

The survey was conducted September 7-9 among adults with subsamples of registered and likely voters.

Obama does show a convention bounce gain among registered voters, with a 6% advantage over Romney. In other words, Obama has more support among voters who are probably not going to vote.

A more accurate assessment of likely voters have the candidates tied with no bounce: Obama registers with 49% of the vote and Romney at 48%.

Unfortunately, the topline results are based on a sample of registered voters, rather than likely voters, so important tactical questions about image, job approval and confidence are difficult to analyze. One thing is certain, this election is about GOTV efforts, as evidenced by Romney's 4% jump among likely voters. If Obama runs a successful ground game and turns out voters not inclined to head to the ballot box, he could take the election.

“Obama has more support among voters who are probably not going to vote.”

The ONLY DNC bounce was the relative %’s of dems verus republicans used in pollster samples - the raising of %’s of dems for a few days. The actual voter sentiment is a continuous slide away from zer0, as more indies get politically engaged.

As much as the DNC and media want to color this as a choice election about 2 candidates, it simply is not. It is a referendum on one person Obama. Republicans will be voting in larger numbers than usual to vote against Obama.Few are excited about Romney as he is viewed as more of a vessel to achieve their ends in getting rid of Obama than an agent of conservative change. That is why IMHO the RNC will get more bang for the buck if most of the war chest the RNC and Super PACs is spent on negative advertising vs Obama than positive advertising for Romney.

Spot on. For the life of me I can't figure out how any poll could show a swing "toward" our Dear Leader. Obama would have to buck ALL trends from the past 60 years. When the economy stinks, Americans send the bum packing; why would it be any different this time? I know the MSM is completely invested in Obama and it's not above them to manipulate the news/polls/discussion, but all the rosy talk in the world isn't going to convince enough people that things are fine.

The MSM is totally invested in Baraq. Have been since Jan 08.
So there’s no turning back now when it comes to strategy.

If Baraq said his sh!t don’t stink, Stefanopolous, Shieffer, Blitzer, and Holt are gonna be telling us it smells like perfume.

Witness Drudge posting report of restaurant owner in
Florida begging people not to boycott him and come back
after being photographed hugging Zero

Few weeks back another business in Ohio had similiar
experience when outside was used in Zero ad

This tells me that people are comtempous of Zero, but will
smile and give the politically correct answer to avoid
being tagged as racist........

Yeah people, if you want to live in a 3rd world hellhole with a command and control police state just pull the lever for Obama again.

If you’re not smart enough to see what’s coming after 4 yrs of this little boys presidency then you deserve what you’re gonna get.

The 6% figure (registered, rather than likely voters) was the one announced by Diane Sawyer on the news tonight.

There is no practical purpose served by polling two such sub-samples. It would add significantly to the expense.

Unless the contractee (in this case, WaPo and ABC) is afraid they won't get the result they want with the LV sample but believe the RV sample will serve as a fail-safe.

More clear evidence of the media using polls primarily for propaganda purposes, rather than as legitimate information.

So does this mean that the Kenyan’s toe suckers in the state controlled “media” have just been jerking our chains since the DNC ‘RATFEST and Sandy Fluke Condom Extravaganza ended?

That's exactly what they did. The only possible reason for two sub-samples -- one RVs, one LV's -- was to get the result they wanted.

If the LVs didn't do it, they were betting that the RVs would.

Have any of you volunteered to work phone banks. Obama phone banks out of California reports it has hit 70,000 calls. How motivated are you to defeat Obama?
