Poll: iPhone users back Obama
Politico ^ | July 10,2012 | PATRICK GAVIN

Posted on 07/10/2012 3:33:26 PM PDT by Hojczyk

A Harris Interactive survey on behalf of technology marketing firm Velti found that 49 percent of iPhone and Android owners plan to support President Barack Obama in November’s election, compared with just 31 percent for Mitt Romney.

There was some good news for Romney, however: He leads Obama 57 percent to 34 percent among retired iPhone and Android users.

A whopping 97 percent of anticipated Obama voters were either iPhone or Android users, compared with 63 percent for Romney voters. The survey was conducted online June 27-29 among 2,164 adults, 776 of whom were iPhone/Android owners.

These kinds of polls are idiotic.
Everyone of my friends and family have iPhones and not one support BHO.
These polls mean nothing.

"A whopping 97 percent of anticipated Obama voters were either iPhone or Android users"

Any statistics on how many of those 97 percent have actual jobs that require them to do something besides waste time on a smart phone? (I'd click the link myself -- but I don't have time.)

What a worthless poll. It reflects more on a demographic than on a device.

A lot of folks buy iPhones and other “smart” phones as fashion statements.

They don’t really need them.

My cell phone is just a simple cell phone. I’m in business, and I don’t text or surf the web with my phone.

I actually get annoyed when I receive email that ends with, “Sent from my iPhone” or “Sent from my Blackberry”.

I realize the noisome appliance adds that line, but why would I want anybody to know what I used to send the email? That alone is enough to keep me away from them.

Then there are the snooping issues with “smart” phones. In a way, you’re volunteering to have your location tracked by Mother Google or the Big Apple.

I don’t buy that most Iphone users are for Obama. If so, they are not iphone users and smart.

That sig is easily removed by the user.

I use an LG dumb flip phone that I've had for at least five years, maybe seven if I go by the SN. I'll likely get the new iPhone when it comes out, I think in September, as I'll be off grid with only cellular data available to me.

Bravo Sierra!

My wife and I have iPhones and we haven’t been polled.

I’ll bet they did a cross section poll of certain zip codes, and gamed the poll in other ways to reach the conclusion they wanted.

My good neighborhood friend thinks that Americans are too stupid to know what America stands for and will re-elect Barack Obama this year.

The Iphone was made in Communist China. Of course the Iphone will vote for Obama. Just as soon as they figure out how to do it.

I with you! I too have just a simple phone. If I want to surf the net, I just go home and sit in front of my 23" HD monitor. The "Sent by my..." thing bugs me too, so I made up a grungy looking typeface that I tag onto to my e-mails that reads: "Set from my typewriter."

I think the main point is proving that he is actually ahead SOMEWHERE....However, unless I missed it, they didn’t even say the phones were in the U.S. So maybe he is actually ahead with european iPhone users.(I’ve learned that what matters most is what they don’t say, not what they do)

"A whopping 97 percent of anticipated Obama voters were either iPhone or Android users"

Statistically speaking, this is like saying "97% of rapists have either a male or female genitalia".

The fact that Obama supporters have a smartphone, means absolutely nothing.

Harris Interactive Survey = online poll. Add the small survey group size and the fact that there's no way for online polls to distinguish among adults, likely voters and minors and you end up with a pile of useless rubbish.

Even the Politico commenters are calling bullshit on this, so it's not rising to the level of worthwhile campaign propaganda.

I’m an iPhone user and I can’t stand the sound of Obeyme. When I hear him I smell bullshiite and stale cigarettes.

Love the product, despise the regime.
