Poll: Nine percent of Obama 08 voters want Romney now
Human Events ^ | 8/6/2012 | Hope Hodge

Posted on 08/06/2012 4:27:26 PM PDT by neverdem

Favor is fickle, and hope and change was easier to promise than deliver on.

A new Gallup poll shows that nearly 10 percent of voters who supported Barack Obama during his 2008 run have decamped and will be supporting Republican challenger Mitt Romney in this next election. At nine percent, the rate of Obama ’08 defectors is nearly double the five percent of former McCain ’08 supporters who now say they’ll cast a vote for Obama.

Partly loyalty is higher in the Republican camp too, with 92 percent of former McCain supporters saying they’re sticking with the red ticket, while only 86 percent of Obama’s 2008 base say they’re staying true.

The poll surveyed more than 2,000 registered voters who punched a ballot in 2008.

Now for some number play: if we make the broad assumption that the poll data is representative of the general population and do some extrapolation, tallying nine percent of 69,456,897 (Obama’s 2008 vote count) and subtracting five percent of John McCain’s 59,934,814 votes, we end up with a potential 3.25 million more votes for Romney than McCain had four years ago. It’s nothing concrete, but it’s becoming clear that election 2012 will be a far different race than 2008 was.

Personally I recommend Romney nominates Palin as VP.

Then we can all vote for him.

I've addressed the consequences and risks of voting third party at length, often.

I've been wrong about as often as you have, so you're as familiar with the feeling as I am. You come on this forum and accuse a guy who is anti-Romney with links to back up his claims of exactly how truly liberal Democrat Romney is, of being on "Team Obama." Instead of just scrolling past his annoying spam, like I do and have done for at least four years, you choose to engage with stupid sniping, Doug, thereby creating certainly the impression that you plan on voting for Romney and consider his detractors defacto "Team Obama" members.

You imply that you don't plan on voting for him ... then you imply (quite wrongly) that I haven't considered the consequences of voting third party. So .. if you're not going to vote for Romney, does that mean you're not going to vote at all at the top of the ticket? That means mathematically that your lack of vote will make the winner (guaranteed to be a liberal either way) appear that much more supported by percentage of popular vote total; if, instead of declining, you had voted third party, it would have been counted among the plurality and weakened the winner's victory percentage.

As for meat -- doctors are not gods. They are fallible. Sometimes fatally and extremely fallible. I've known a lot of vegans and a lot of vegetarians for long periods of time. The less meat the longer, the squirrelier the thinking. Have likewise known extremely smart survivor-type guys who literally survived by being cool-headed and clear-thinking, and they all ate lots of meat, fish, fowl (and beer and scotch!). Not a few lived into their 90s. Doctors are fallible.

Since California is lost, I have the luxury of voting for whomever I wish. I am not kidding when I say it might be me. I agree with myself almost 100% of the time.

A doctor did not tell me not to eat meat.

Look up pescetarian. Omega 3 in salmon is good for my heart.

Now if you want another 4 years Obama ...

What I WANT is a pony, always have.

What I want, what you want, are both of zero significance. We're guaranteed to have a liberal agenda-pushing guy in the White House. You are going to vote for your "new and improved" version of liberal agenda-pushing guy because you are afraid of Obama.

I am going to vote for a plurality because the last two times a liberal president was elected on a plurality, conservatives were so empowered that they forced him to move right with the Republican Revolution, and then impeached him.

I don't want either one of the bastards, but what I want is irrelevant. I'm voting the only way I can to weaken whichever one wins and to deprive him of a popular vote mandate. You're voting to specifically empower one of them, and you're risking being part of a landslide popular mandate for that liberal. That's what it boils down to.

It would be an interesting exercise to go back to the Bush Era on FR and see just how many of the ABOers were relentlessly mocking the abject stupidity of the left for screaming “ANYBODY BUT BUSH!”

I’ll bet that of the Freepers currently howling “ABO!”, a good number were right there railing on them.

Oh...but now the shoe is on the other foot. Suddenly they have adopted the exact same mindset.

Bush/Obama will destroy America? Check.

And the ones that wern’t there then, well, it should make them feel good to have adopted the very mindset that every conservative once took as sheer insanity.

Now it is 100% true that the left was thoroughly railed in word, graphics and every other form of communication here and elsewhere. Radio guys did it. TV guys did it. Politicians did it.

But now, suddenly, the ‘right’ finds itself adopting the very same mindset of the very same people they thought insane.

And they are PROUD of it.

Well, let them be proud. I also expect them to keep their mouths shut when the man who their votes elected presidentm does not succumb to the ‘HopeandChange’ of a congress unwilling to rein him in. Because if all the ABOers in the country united behind ANY conservative, it’s a mathimatical certainty that person would win.

That they won’t is out of fear they will do so alone and thus lose. And I defy them to cite fear resulting in a positive political outcome.

They sure as hell cannot point to the genesis of their ABO crusade - IE the Left and Obama. Look what their ‘fear’ of rePalin resulted in.

Last time there were about 129 million votes cast. My vote counts for 1/129,000,000. I am pretty sure that is not statistically significant. But I am sure that Romney has commented on such statistics and we will be pointed to the fallacy of his position.

Instead, you will participate in risking a landslide for a Republican liberal who was the real author of ObamaCare, a full-fledged supporter of the gay agenda everywhere from the U.S. military to adoption agencies, an enabler of on-demand tax-funded abortion, an appointer of activist judges, and a wholesale advocate of "a worldwide solution, not an American one," with regard to global warming regulation in a "carbon plan" to "save" the environment.

You don't need to participate in any "othuggo love fest" -- with guys like you supporting "Republicans" like Romney, who needs "Team Soetoro"?

Yes. Vote for a plurality -- the only way you can do that is to vote third party. The last time a liberal president was elected on a plurality, he was impeached; the time before, he was forced to the right by the Republican Revolution. Seeing as how we're guaranteed to get a liberal president no matter who wins in 2012, the best gamble is to vote for a plurality and prevent either one of them from receiving a popular mandate majority.

Seeing as how Obama is so loathed that he's losing supporters in drove and they are moving to Romney, odds are about as good as they get that voting third party instead of voting for Romney, would prevent either liberal from getting a popular mandate and instead give him a plurality, which would -- as it did with Clinton both times -- strengthen conservatives' ability to oppose and dominate him.

Then how in hell do you get off saying that you know anyone here is pro-Obama, engaging in an "othuggo love fest," or on "Team Soetero"? You can't read their minds any better than you can read Jim Robinson's, and he has no more inention of voting for liberal Democrat Romney than I do.

Your tagline is false advertising. Mine, on the other hand, is truth.

Amen, Brother FReeper. And looking at the article that originated this thread, if all the ABOers in the country voted third party even if for different candidates, it's nearly a mathematical certainty that whoever won, Obama or Romney, would have such a piss-poor plurality that he'd go into office facing an America where nearly two in three voters voted for somebody else. A conservative Congress could own him.

Yep -- ABO is as abjectly short-sighted as the left's "Anybody but Bush" mantra.

You have 2 choices and ONLY two, but you know that. It’s crystal clear you are fine with 4 more years of fag boy. No thanks. Voting for Romney. I might even start donating and campaigning for him just to piss you off. I don’t like him but I sure don’t hate him with ever fiber of my being, so that makes my choice easy. Sadly, you hate Romney as much as I hate Osh&thead.

A new Gallup poll shows that nearly 10 percent of voters who supported Barack Obama during his 2008 run have decamped and will be supporting Republican challenger Mitt Romney in this next election.

Wow, great news. There is one goal on my mind: Run Obama out of Washington DC on election day.

One thing is certain: with warts and all, Romney is better than Obama. And for now, that looks great and it is good enough for me.

I hope all those people who have lost their jobs in the last few years think about that, and I further hope that those who still have jobs realize that 4 more years of Obama is a detriment and a genuine danger to anyone’s stability in the workforce.

What do you have to talk to me about Finster... i.e. ping
I’m not a conservative... I’m a radical..

I will vote for Myth this time but will leave the party after that.. 2013...
You seem to think your pretty smart.. I’m not..
After all I’m a republican..

Proof: I voted for all three Shrubs several times.. AND believed that the last 5 presidential elections was not a comedy cartoon.. a Kubuki Theater skit..

This election surely is absolutely a cartoon.. Running the inventor of Romney-care against the inventor of Obama-care is a cartoon.. I’ve had with cartoon elections.. I’m through.. The american people are being played like Pavlov’s dogs.. When I hear the dog whistle it now pisses me off.. I’m not amused anymore.. My mouth does not water-up..

I have dreams of a gang gallows on the White House lawn with a long line of entertainment waiting.. I would voluteer to pull the trap in a second.. with 12 hour shifts.. and I see Myth Romney in the line..

After all if the people of Mass. love Romney he’s dirty..
He has ten foot pole marks all over him..

Actually, mojit, you are confusing "outcomes" with "choices." Like you, I know that we face only one of two outcomes, Romney or Obama. But we have many choices in terms of who to vote for at the top of the ticket. My choice to vote third party knowing that the outcome will still be Obama or Romney, is such that my vote will necessarily count against the popular mandate of whichever liberal wins. Your choice is that it will necessarily make liberalism more powerful in the Republican party.

It is what it is. You've been slacking on the derisive pictures, dude. What's up?

I pinged you as a courtesy ping because I think I saw a post on the thread from you related to former Obama supporters saying they were going to vote for Romney. Don't read anything into the ping, hosepipester.

You seem to think you're pretty smart..

No, I think I'm careful. YOU think I think I'm smart; that's your deal, not mine. But man o manischevitz, you're right about "I'm not, after all, I'm a Republican." I hear ya -- I've voted in every major and mid-term election since 1976 and voted straight Republican ticket in every single one of them. This November will be the first time in my life, in 36 years of voting, that I will have ever declined a Republican on any ballot, let alone at the top of the ticket.

It will take the most courage I've ever needed to muster in an election -- voting for Romney would be the path of least resistance. But I'm just "radical" and "conservative" enough finally to have figured out Einstein's definition of insanity. And it only took me 55 years!

I like your gang gallows fantasy.

Where do you think conservative Republicans would stand in Congress in opposing liberal moves by a very liberal top Republican and top political figure backed by such a sound popular mandate?

One crisis at a time. First, let's get that black communist out of office and THEN we can worry about dealing with Romney's liberal urges. If you push against Romney so hard that Obama wins, what have you gained?

If Romney wins, the economy jumps back to life. Let's celebrate that and THEN we can start keeping Romney in check. If Obama wins, we have four more years of excrement on a shingle, plus a lawless president that won't care how many laws he breaks or how many executive orders he signs to circumvent Congress and now has no re-election to keep his communism in check.

If you think Romney is liberal, you just wait to see what Obama would do in a second term. I can't risk that happening. NO SANE AMERICAN CAN RISK THAT HAPPENING.

So stop doing Obama's bidding which is the only think you can possibly hope to accomplish with your sophistry.

One crisis at a time.

Wrong. Look at the course you're plotting to avoid lethal shoals altogether, because if you get in them, navigating them "one crisis at a time" with a liberal behind the wheel is guaranteed to have bad results.

You want to get "the black communist" out of office because you are so certain that a Repubican congress, even if Obama only won on a plurlaity (very likely the best he could do, reading the tea leaves), wouldn't have the courage to fight him -- yet you think that same Congress would defy the defacto leader of their own party who won with a solid popular mandate majority?

Wishful thinking, anyone?

Romney sure as heck didn't do much for the economy of Massachusetts. Really, there's so much wishful thinking that must be engaged in anticipating Romney. Obama is a weak fraud -- but you are so terrified of his imaginary power that you refuse point blank to consider means to make him vulnerable and take advantage of it. Instead, you advocate voting to make liberalism more powerful in the Republican party. It is quite, quite that simple: that is what you are proposing to do, and then wishing, wishing, wishing that the liberal you elect will not act like the liberal you KNOW him to be.

Because you cannot handle the REAL risks of Romney winning on a landslide and the REAL sense of at least voting for a plurality to prevent a mandate of either liberal, you are reduced to accusing me of sophistry, ironic because you then accuse me of doing "Obama's bidding." YOU are doing liberalism's bidding. FACE IT. And then face that crisis FIRST.

And this does not include the roughy 10% (IMHO) of Obama 2008 voters who will likely stay home in November. In other words, Obama is in deep dodo.

Those who want Obama to win (which if you notice, they never come out and say directly) think that putting the nation through another 4 years of Obama is going to advance the cause of conservatism.

How, they never say.

What ideas, you guys have no ideas, just let Obama win and complain about the GOP not nominating the right guy.

You are really delusional if you think the GOP controlled Congress is going to stop Obama!

Even with TeaParty victories, the Senate will still be controlled by the RINOs, and they will have to deal with a last term President who will be emboldened to finish what he started in his first term, the destruction of the US.

Obamacare will be funded and it will destroy the economy.

No, either Obama or Romney wins, that is reality.

You have this 'advanced plan' thinking Obama will be 'weakened' if he wins reelection!

When Democrats win elections, they always see it as a mandate, no matter how close the election.
