CBS 5 Poll: Romney Gains 8 Points On Faltering Obama In California
CBS ^

Posted on 10/11/2012 12:32:35 AM PDT by Arthurio

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS 5) — The effects of President Barack Obama’s falter in the first debate with Mitt Romney are not just being felt in battleground states, according to KPIX-TV CBS 5′s latest tracking poll of California which shows Romney slicing eight points off Obama’s lead.

Obama had led by 22 points in the CBS 5 tracking poll released four weeks ago. Obama now leads by only 14 points, an 8-point improvement for Romney. At the same time, the poll found U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s support for her re-election bid remained largely unchanged, month-on-month, suggesting that the erosion in Democratic support is not across-the-board, but contained to Obama. Unclear is whether the Obama erosion is fleeting or long-lasting.

The poll data released Wednesday showed Obama 53%, Romney 39%, in California. Obama carried the Golden State by 24 points in 2008, so the poll found Obama is now running 10 points weaker than he ran 4 years ago. Among Independents, Obama led by 14 in September, but now trails by 9 in October, a 23-point right turn among the most coveted voters. One explanation, based on the poll data: The number of Romney supporters who said they were voting “for Mitt Romney” as opposed to “against Barack Obama” is way up, month over month.

If Romney pulls within four points after the second debate....the Obama team might start to worry. You really can’t lose the California race. It was a guaranteed thing and to have the opposition within a few points there....it really changes the dynamic of the election.

Obama now leads by only 14 points

There is no way Romney can win this liberal puke state. 14 points is probably as close as it will ever be.

As recently as 1988 a Republican won California. Remember, in 1984, President Reagan even won Hawaii! Vice President Mondale only won his own state (MN) and the District of Columbia.

Mott Romney was never CA’s governor. Ronald Reagan was and remained very popular here which made winning the state easy for him. There is no reason to expect the same result for Romney.
