Skip to comments.GALLUP : ROMNEY 47% OBAMA 45%
Posted on 08/17/2012 4:14:28 PM PDT by RobinMasters
These are the results when registered voters are asked: "Suppose the presidential election were held today. If Barack Obama were the Democratic Party's candidate and Mitt Romney were the Republican Party's candidate, who would you vote for Barack Obama, the Democrat or Mitt Romney, the Republican?" Those who are undecided are further asked if they lean more toward Obama or Romney and their leanings are incorporated into the results. Each seven-day rolling average is based on telephone interviews with approximately 3,050 registered voters; Margin of error is ±2 percentage points. Results from April 15 through May 6 are based on five-day rolling averages with approximately 2,200 registered voters each; Margin of error is ±3 percentage points. Editorial note: Due to a technical issue, the May 1-5 data point is not displayed at this time.

Now, do you think that will happen in 12? No way.
This is a Socon issue ~ Romney doesn't care.
Absolutely meaningless poll unless you as “who ya’ gonna’ vote fer” ~ plenty of worthless politicians win office every year.
The poll DOES ask who they are going to vote for, hence Romney 51, Obama 46...
He knows what was done by the MIttbots. A normal man would have been ashamed. He still sends out his junior acolytes to attack people who remind them of this.
I expect this thread to continue on into the wee hours of Sunday morning as the Temple Work guys come on board to focus on my comments yet one more time.
Do you realize how much your responses serve to up my count with Google.com so that threads with my stuff on them become dominant in the search patterns.
CORRECTION: The poll DOES ask who they are going to vote for, hence Romney 51, Obama 45...
BTW, all the old folks know the Democrats are trying to get their stuff. That's why we keep practicing the line: "Hey, you kids, get off my lawn"
August 10-16, 2012. Note: No Ryan bump per Gallup. Also 47 to 45 the previous 3 weeks.
“Soros and company crashed the derivatives market”
Ban derivatives, if it ain’t real it can’t deal.
Ok, you tell Battleground/Tarrance Group how to do their job!, lol
The top left corner pie chart is not a name recognition thing, it’s how the individuals polled intend to vote.
Fwiw, you might be wise to familiarize yourself with The Tarrance Group and their accuracy in predicting the outcome of the last 5 Presidential elections - overall there is none better.
I am voting for Ryan... writing him in at the top of the ticket. That seems the best course for me as I believe it wrong for me to vote for Romney.
Where’s the poll of LIKELY voters and what does it say?
Rasmussen is the best for right now and it has ryan and romney up 3 to 4 in Wisc Fla and Virginia...don;t know when they last did Ohio
Part of the reason is that economics change, polling firms hire on new people, others move elsewhere ~ it's really quite a show.
During this last 5 years we've had substantially reduced budgets for advertising, and market polling ~ the bread and butter part of the business ~ just hasn't been all it was.
It's possible NONE of the major firms in the business is getting close to the answer this time.
My thesis is that we have two fundamentally flawed and therefore weak candidates. People have a hard time wrapping their minds around either one of them ~ so as the parties begin to PUSH for recognition, people actually end up liking them less and less.
With both Obama and Romney familiarity breeds contempt ~ or at least a more than normal dose of disinterest.
Most polling techniques fail to catch two things ~ one of them is the number of people who refuse to answer questions about homosexual behavior or inclination for MORAL REASONS. It's probably well more than half ~ which distorts all the results.
The other thing those same techniques fail to deal with well are declining popularity in a two person match up. The problem is the same ~ they toss the outliers and non-responses before computing/imputing the preferences.
BTW, where you have a primary with 6 or 7 people in it the same pollsters are pretty effective in picking up on declining popularity because THEY DON"T TOSS OUTLIERS OR NONRESPONSES. In fact you frequently see the "NO PREFERENCE" reported right along with the rest of the polling.
So, with a race to the bottom, with declining popularity for both candidates, and pollsters tossing non-responses, there's no assurance these guys are any better than the others.
Anything nationwide from Rasmussen?
Anyway, I didn't know about the 25% crossover. That sucks. But, as you said, that will not happen this time.
Friday, August 17, 2012 -- The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows President Obama attracting support from 46% of voters nationwide, while Mitt Romney earns the vote from 45%.
So between Gallup and Rasmussen, it looks like most unlikely voters are Republicans.
I did quite a bit of work with the handicapped compliance implementation where i was employed. Pass it along to your buddies that they're screwing with their market playing games with colors ~ they need to use shading, plus bold type.
Uh, not for me but for the guys who need to use Cialis, Levitra, Staxyn, Stendra, and Viagra they too can tell you they can and do develop blue blindness. If you're a pilot they'll ground you for it.
So, they rose up and voted for a slaver finally ~ simply amazing ~ that's what the Luo tribe did ~ catch slaves!
Bet they never thought of that though.
