Skip to comments.Ohio - Obama approval 48/49 overall, and 13/65 among undecideds

It's a mistake to think based on recent polling in Ohio that the race there is over. Obama is not popular in the state, with 48% of voters approving of him to 49% who disapprove. Among voters who remain undecided there just 13% think he's doing a good job to 65% who give him poor marks. That doesn't mean those folks will move to Romney en masse because they don't particularly like him either (a 26/37 favorability rating) but it does mean there's potential for the race there to get within tossup range over the final five weeks.

I still believe Ohio is Romney's to lose. His 47% remark wouldn't hurt him by itself, but the rats are using it in an ad, thus proving ironically that it is true after all! All the servile "victims," of racism, homophobia, war against women, whatever, are lining up and whining about how Romney is victimizing them! In a simpler era it would be high comedy.
How can this be? The MSM just reported that Hussein was up 10 points. last. week
Romney surging. Voter tsunami for Mitt in Ohio.
At this point in 1989 Reagan was down by 7 in Texas.
Mitt has this won, barring any huge mistakes.
Nine percent???? An Ouija Board is probably more accurate.
There are no “undecideds”.
BTW, independents are still going to vote Dem or Rep, but they, too, may pass ~
Romney will need to attract non-voting Republicans. He told folks at a fund raiser he was targeting the 5 to 10% of independents ~ in the middle ~
BTW, Republicans are usually not found in the center ~ so Romney told his money guys he isn't targeting you.
I find it difficult to believe any Republican candidate would just give up on the main body of his voters, but there you have it...... no change so far.......
The 47% thing is a mishmash of folk tales and misperceptions. It probably doesn't hurt or help Romney.
It does hurt Hannity ~ he's actually proposed raising taxes on the poor ~ which is usually a nonstarter in this, or any other country. He did tell us he's not a Republican and he's not a Democrat, and fur shur a guy with a political tin ear like that probably isn't either. Maybe a know-nothing or mugwump, or possibly the last of the Whigs.
That leaves 37% unaccounted for. That could change drastically as the debates occur.
Obama: “Magic 8-ball, will I win in November?”
The rate of responsive responses in polling is dropping like a rock to historic low levels.
That means there's a large mass of Republicans and Democrats out there who are of a like mind ~ not responding ~ and they may well do that as they vote.
This is an aspect of the polls you just never see but I knew it was there, and so it is. Guess it's so bad somebody was finally moved to let the public know.
No way do I think Obama is doing well in Ohio at all. Just more leftist-clap-trap trying to push conservatives to stay home and not vote.
END OF STORY
And to think the big issue yesterday was whether or not they were weighting the results (BWAhahahahahahaaaaa)
The issue tonight, thanks to you, is ..........wow!!!!
PP has the D/R/I as 41/36/23. There is no way that the electorate in Ohio will be comprised of 41% D. It just isn’t going to happen.
I thought that was his middle name. Huge Mittstakes Romney. :) /jk
I have faith that the good people of Ohio will, in the end, reject this Elmer Gantry screamer and send him back to the tent of Rev Wright for further indoctrination....
Couple of polls say most agree with Romney on the 47 pct
Any state, or any country, where 48% of the people approve of Obama is finished.
There's your 4-1 break of the undecided to Romney.
