Oregon, Obama Under-Performs 2008, But Still Sits 9 Points Atop Romney in 2012 - Obama at only 50%
SurveyUSA ^ | 09/13/2012 | Sponsor: KATU-TV Portland

Posted on 09/26/2012 3:16:37 PM PDT by justlittleoleme

In an election for President of the United States in Oregon today, 09/13/12, Barack Obama defeats Mitt Romney 50% to 41%, according to a SurveyUSA poll conducted for KATU-TV in Portland. Obama carried Oregon by 16 points in 2008, but leads by 9 points 5 weeks till 2012 voting in Oregon begins.

**SNIP**

SurveyUSA interviewed 700 state of Oregon adults 09/10/12 through 09/13/12. Of the adults, 633 were registered to vote. Of the registered voters, 552 were determined by SurveyUSA to be likely to vote in the 11/06/12 election.

Would like to see a Rasmussen Poll for this state. Just find it interesting that Obama only has 50% support in this liberal state. Wonder what the real numbers are.

PORTLAND !!!
Talk about San Francisco North !!

Talk about a skewed poll !!
Sample the rest of the “Cowboy/Redneck State” and I’m certain the picture will change.

Another skewed poll. If The Won is only pulling 50%, then the down ticket is in a LOT of trouble.

Survey USA is one of the most inaccurate polls out there. And that’s saying a lot.

Am I living in an alternate universe? Is everyone working, are taxes lower, is gas a dollar a gallon? Did we reduce the deficit? WTF is wrong with people? What are they thinking? The country is going down the tubes and 50% of our own people are proactively giving us a shove?

Thats why I would like to see Rasmussen do a poll. This obviously skewed liberal poll only has 50% for Obama.

Portland, Salem, Eugene, etc.

All of the metro areas are way left of Frisco.

Nope, this is what happens when a nation becomes a social welfare state. A message of smaller government simply doesn't resonate as well since so many are dependent on government for one benefit or another.

Another problem, more people simply like Obama better than Romney. Bad at his job though Hussein is, people think he's cool. We are a celebrity crazed, reality TV obsessed nation and Obama is pretty much what passes as the American public these days deserves.

Lastly, Pat Buchanan was right about what would happen if America was fundamentally transformed demographically. His frightening predictions are coming to pass.

The Marxist can only defy the laws of gravity for so long. But it’s up to Romney and the super Pacs to hang some heavy weights on him.

“WTF is wrong with people?”

Romney is not convincing them that he can do better than Hussein so they are sticking with what they know rather than taking a chance on a new horse.

Most people work, come home, watch movies/football/whatever, go to bed, then get up and go to work, etc., etc. I think they will watch the debates and that could change some of these voters. If Romney does poorly, they are for sure staying with their original horse.

Yep, whenever I want to find out how the presidential race is going, I look up the hippy monkey-humpers in the mortified city of Portland. When God told the Portland freaks to hop to the front for the brains, they thought He said hop in front of a train.

I can save you a lot of reading.
2008-2012 White House (polling) standards for sample surveys:
1.) Call during the work day.
If person answers,
2.) Ask resident if s/he is a Democrat.
If answer is `No,’ go to next name on list.

Agreed - Rasmussen’s record speaks for itself - it produces the most reliable polling when you look back at its success rate.

I am reminded back in 2004 how upset Vietnam Veteran John Kerry was when he lost the election — the polls showed him winning handily. Jesse Jackson declared voter fraud in Ohio and elsewhere. Kerry is so unlikeable, no one really cared, however. Imagine him as our next SOS if Barry wins...

Do you think that these bogus pollsters know exactly what they’re doing: Creating the notion that Barry Soetoro will win, and when he doesn’t, it’s because the Other Side cheated and Barry’s paid minions will take to the streets. Yes, Barry and the family are heading to Hawaii this January - they know it and are already looking for a nice modest mansion far away from the Mayhem they will have caused in our country.

Yes, Oregon is very similar to Washington state. For both states, most of the conservatives live east of the Cascades. There are some exceptions...such as myself, conservatives who live on the westside...but we are in the minority.

I haven’t paid attention to Oregon television/radio lately. But I would expect that O would carry the state. BUT if O loses Oregon, Katie bar the doors...it’s going to be a Willard landslide.

I haven’t seen ONE new bumpersticker or yard sign in either

Oh you’re talking about one of my fav o rite areas of Oregon. If I could...I would move to S Oregon around Medford. Heck...even Ashland. Oregon is a beautiful state, from the coast to central Oregon to southern Oregon.

If Obama can't do better than 50% in the People's Republic of Oregon, it's not just the down ticket that's in trouble.

So according to this poll, Obama has lost 16% from his 2008 total, but Romney has only gained 1% from McCain?

My brother ran a concrete construction business in Salem for 22 years (just shut it down) and he never saw anything ‘conservative’ about the place.

Regulations up the wazoo.

“Forgive me for my bad memory. Do I know you?”

You do now. It’s simply my way of saying “Hello” to FReepers on FR. If you check my posts, you’ll see me saying hello all over the place.

Cheers, FRiend.

You know I didn’t even pick upon that! You’re right. They didn’t even qualify that ALL surveyed were even REGISTERED voters. If Obama is at 50% of just plain schlubs who may not even vote at all, this is a disaster for him.
