Skip to comments.Poll shows Romney as clear favorite in Tennessee (R 59%, 0 34%)

Republican Mitt Romney leads Democrat Barack Obama in the race for president in Tennessee, bolstered at least partly by the support Romney has gained among Tennessee's white evangelical voters since last spring's primary.
A solid 59 percent of the state's registered, likely voters say they support Romney. Just 34 percent say they support Obama. About 6 percent are undecided, and the remaining 1 percent say they support "someone else."
Romney enjoys his broadest support among the self-described white evangelical Christians who make up nearly two-thirds (61 percent) of the state's likely voters. Among Tennesseans in this group, Romney leads Obama 74 percent to 21 percent, with 5 percent undecided. This segment of Tennessee's electorate has supported the Republican candidate for president in both elections since 2004, the first presidential election during which the MTSU Poll sampled attitudes statewide.
Santorum won the state's March 6 Republican primary, capturing 37 percent of the votes cast compared to 28 percent for Romney, 24 percent for Newt Gingrich and about 10 percent spread among the remaining candidates. In the current MTSU Poll, 84 percent of those who said they had voted for Santorum in 2010 have now sided with Romney.
In another pattern of support for the two candidates, political independents tend to favor Romney (68 percent) over Obama (22 percent), with the rest undecided or favoring someone else. Unsurprisingly, self-described Democrats and Republicans show near total support for their parties' nominees, with 89 percent of Democrats favoring Obama and 95 percent of Republicans favoring Romney.

Woo hoo! Like those numbers!
I guess the MSM will count that a ‘leaning Romney’.
Funny, I just saw an ad for President Obama in Knoxville. Keep spending that money in TN Mr. Prez.
But he wont be visiting LOL!
Why would 21% of White evangelical Christians support a homosexual Marxist Moslem?
They've been playing since around the first debate. I don't get it, but you're right, keep on buying them.
The 2008 results for TN were:
So Romney’s doing better than McCain did, assuming the current numbers hold up.
I saw that too. I told my husband Obama just spent a ton of money on ESPN trying to reach people in TN and SC. Like he has a chance in either state.
I guess it prooves,once again, that he has no idea how to budget money and use it most effectively.
Probably for the same reason that many would support a person who must wear “holy underwear” for certain events, and believes that a guy who found some “sacred plates” in 19th Century USA is Jesus’ prophet.
Sorry. prooves = proves.
Go save your Messiah. He needs you! :)
Based on my observation of yard signs....compared to 2008...I am surprised that Romney’s percentage is not much higher!
This election is not about underwear...
I'm Luv’n this Election in Tennessee
Also, said underwear will never be pulled down in the Oval Office for any hussies.
“No Campaigning activity on TV or Radio”
No such luck in California. Obama ads running all the time here. I’ve also seen some ads from the RNC, Conservative Majority and Americans for Prosperity.
I’ve seen several signs and bumper stickers for Romney/Ryan and only a few for the Communist. I never put up signs or use bumper stickers because the libtards will tear up your stuff, so I’m a little surprised to see so many.
BTW, I’m not saying Romney will win the state just that things have changed. Also, I’m happy the Communist is spending funds here.
Nobody ever mentions WV, but just for the record Romney will take WV in a landslide. Practically everybody in the state is a Tea Party member.
Coal gets the headlines but guns are the make or break issue in WV. It cost Gore critical EVs in 2000 and all subsequent national races will follow the pattern.
