Skip to comments.Ohio - Obama approval 48/49 overall, and 13/65 among undecideds
Posted on 09/30/2012 6:39:49 PM PDT by profit_guy
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.
Meanwhile Romney is moving to states like WI and eying PA and NM. Obama is in big trouble. All the kings horses and all the Kings men couldn't put Hopey-Changey together again!
We get it, you predicted a Romney nomination would guarantee an Obama victory, and now you’re nervous you were wrong. What I don’t get is why you’re actively trying to dissuade people from voting to fire the worst President our country has ever had (Andrew Johnson fans are all dead...).
65% give him poor marks and they will still vote for him? I dont think so.
Didn’t know he was on the ballot in ‘89;)
Are the polls calling a bunch of people owning those free obama phones? Just saying.
That’s what confuses me - how can 65% think he is doing a poor job and he is leading in the polls? Back in 2008, when I did political polling in OH - I knew McCain was in trouble because the response to the question of do you believe our country is going in the right/wrong direction was overwhelmingly in the wrong direction - and the liar-in-chief carried the state. I don’t know what to make of these polls, so I just shrug them off and hope that people vote according to their response.
Hahahaha. Obama is loved in 2 places that I can think of... Bexley and Upper Arlington. That’s it. 1 liberal city and 1 liberal village. I BELIEVE Ohio will red on November 6th.

Its been pure crap for the last four years and that has been under wonder boys watch so I think he gets hammered just like bush/mcnutts did.I at least hope so.
I can’t figure out why residents of Bexley would be swarming to Obama. He clearly could give a rat’s ass about Israel.
The residents of Bexley are overwhelmingly Jewish.
Good grief man, Buchanan is the reason no one talks about any of the others in anything but 'second worst' ~ btw, I didn't predict an obama win ~ i predicted a tight race made even tighter by people who thought we needed a moderate to attract uncommited independents.
that might be a nice idea if such people existed but they don't.
The Pew data show clearly that 91% aren't interested enough in this race to bother answering a few questions ~ good grief man ~ how popular are these people?
how do they really know what most think ~ 91% don’t bother to get involved anymore! Accept it ~ i predicted this ~ I have a feel for this stuff ~ my opinion is at least as good as anyone’s in this sort of situation.,P>It’s a race to the bottom ~ and that’s getting pretty doggone close eh!
if they had obama phones they’d answer ~ isn’t that the 9%?
BTW, even Romney doesn’t know what he meant by 47% ~ now, about the 91%. That’s a far more important number since that’s the percentage of folks contacted by a poll who do not end up providing input to that poll.
The whole thing was bs, as barry would say about the death of our ambassador its just a bump in the road
