Complete and total horse manure!

I live in the very heart of NASCAR country; if Obama gets 5% of the vote of NASCAR fans, I will be astonished.

NOBODY like him!

This is BS of the highest order. Compared to NRA members, NASCAR fans are even MORE anti-Obama.

In another shocker, Romney is winning the battle of people who regularly watch the TV One channel, however.

“according to a new Zogby Poll [PDF] with JZ Analytics.”

I always wondered why Zogby asked if I considered myself a NASCAR fan near the end of their surveys.

I now know they wanted to see if they could create a subgroup of Republicans and Democrats for their survey, once Michelle was booed by NASCAR fans.

Obama leads 49 to 40 overall.

47 to 43 in non-swing states...
But leads 50 to 36 in swing states!

There’s some weird, weird stuff in this poll...

I did my own poll and found that 50% of NASCAR fans are gay and 50% are also black, probably the same people voting yes in each category.
And I believe Ziggy poll is has as much creditability as Bill Clinton’s statement: “I DID NOT HAVE SEX WITH THAT WOE-MENS”.

During a college football game Saturday night, the scroll at the bottom of the screen: NASCAR “Austin Dillon wins (name of race). Danica Patrick 13th.” 13 must be the new 2nd place.

How many online polls come out every day. And yet, the lib media is going wild with this one.

It plays into the Obama is inevitable meme... why even conservative NASCAR voters are on board. It’s like a Reagan landslide all over - except with a crappy economy and a marxist in place of a patriot.

Are the NASCAR fans having some fun at Obama’s expense? I don’t get too many Zogby polls anymore; I guess they don’t like my demographic.
I always assumed the questions about religious preferences, how often I shopped at Walmart and whether or not I was a NASCAR fan as their way of establishing or confirming a conservative stereotype.

“I’m finding this very hard to believe”

I am not, here in Va when Romney went to the NASCAR in Richmond the “newspaper” just wrote about how Romney could no connect with the people because he has friends that own NASCAR.....The papers are spinning every thing in a negative way towards Romney and making excuses for Obama
