  • Final Pre-election Harris Polls 11-02-04: Too Close to Call but Kerry Makes Modest Gains

    The Harris Poll ^ | 11-02-04 | harris interactive
    The final Harris Poll from Nov 2, 2004...Another piece of evidence pointing to a likely Kerry victory is that online Harris Polls in these large, key states, which may well determine the Electoral College result, all show modest Kerry leads. However, all these leads are within the possible sampling error for these surveys. Assuming the forecast is correct, Kerry is likely to win all three large states, and almost certainly the White House along with it. The sample sizes were well over 1,000 likely voters in Florida (1,433), Pennsylvania (1,204), and Ohio (1,218).

    Ramsey, NJ, Oct 23, 2008 / 06:55 pm (CNA).- Investor's Business Daily and the TechnoMetrica Institute of Policy and Politics (IBD/TIPP) has just released a tracking poll that shows that John McCain has dramatically shortened the his deficit with Barack Obama, taking a significant lead among Catholics. In the midst of the polling confusion, this poll has been regarded as relevant, since an analysis of Final Certified Results showed IBD's polling partner, TIPP to be the most accurate pollster for the 2004 election. IBD/TIPP reported late on Thursday that McCain has cut into Obama's lead for a second day...

Swing-state students also are saying they are more likely to vote than students in non-swing states. # Women are far more likely to support Kerry. The race is about even among males.
  • Black Vote Is Key For Kerry-High African American Turnout Could Swing Election To Democrat

    With expectations of a record African American turnout on Nov. 2, voter trends suggest that if John Kerry wins the White House it will be in large part due to overwhelming support among black voters. However, if African Americans turn out at levels equivalent to previous elections or are offset by drastic shifts in outside voter trends, President Bush is likely to earn four more years. In an interview, Rev. Jesse Jackson says it point blank: “The black vote is the swing vote.” And, as Jackson knows, Kerry cannot win the presidency unless the black vote swings heavily in his...

    The following is an analysis of the 17 state polls adminstered by Rasmussen during the final days of the 2004 election, consisting of mainly "contested" and toss-up states. Findings: 1)In 17 Polls, Bush Was Underestimated in all 17, Kerry was Overestimated in 4 and correctly predicted in 2. Note that these polls also included a percentage of "undecided" voters. So to be "overestimated" is actually extremely difficult when 5-10% of voters do not even participate with a Bush/Kerry answer. If you remove "no comment" voters from the sample, Kerry's support is overestimated in almost every single state poll, while Bush...

    Don't be discouraged by polls showing McCain and Palin trailing Obama in key states. In 2004, one state poll after the next had underestimated Bush's support, often going well beyond the "scientific" margin of error. Meanwhile, those same polls either correctly predicted or over-predicted Kerry's numbers. Out of over 100 state polls reviewed, more than 90% of polls undersampled Bush, while more than 65% oversampled Kerry.

Now the final presidential debate is over, these voters have essentially made up their minds - and it is George W.Bush who should be worried. If John Kerry is elected the 44th president, it will be because of a single night in Miami, Florida, when he came to debate and Mr. Bush came to - well, no one is quite sure.

    (CBS) A majority of uncommitted voters (39 percent) who watched Wednesday's third and final presidential debate felt Sen. John Kerry won, though nearly as many (36 percent) thought the result was a tie, and about one-quarter gave the debate to President Bush. Immediately after the debate, CBS News interviewed a nationally representative sample of more than 200 debate watchers assembled by Knowledge Networks who were "uncommitted voters" - voters who are either undecided about who to vote for or who have a preference but say they could still change their minds. During the debate, women frequently registered more positive reactions...

Last month, CNN's astute commentator Jeff Greenfield hosted an entire segment on how easily this election could turn out like 2000, with President Bush and Sen. John Kerry splitting victories in the popular vote and the electoral college. Greenfield even threw out the possibility of an electoral college split of 269-269, brought about by a shift of just two swing states that went...

Rasmussen seems to favor Republicans - so the fact that Kerry's advantage has grown lately is a very positive sign. Kerry leads 48.4% - 46.4% in todays poll. The electorate may be leaning towards the challenger, desiring a change. Of course, the explosives left unguarded by the Bush administration and the prospect of Scalia being appointed Chief Justice might have an impact as well.

    By and large the pollsters did an excellent job this year, especially when you consider the significant variables they were grappling with (massive registration increases, historic levels of intensity, cell phones, etc) and also that they were working under intense public scrutiny and scorching partisan attacks from both sides.At the national level the answer to the question is pretty straightforward. Ed Goeas's GW-Battleground Vote Projection and Pew Research got it exactly right. Goeas's final Battleground projection was Bush 51.2, Kerry 47.8, Nader 0.5 and Pew's final allocation was 51-48-1. CBS News/NY Times also nailed the final spread in the race...

    Plurality still satisfied with current spending levels by Jeffrey M. Jones GALLUP NEWS SERVICE PRINCETON, NJ -- As both houses of Congress take up the issue of the federal budget, they are looking to cut spending in order to reduce the projected budget deficit. Defense spending is one particular area in which Congress will likely approve less money than President George W. Bush requested. A recent Gallup Poll shows that Americans tend to think government spending on national defense is about right, but a growing percentage say the government is spending too much in this area. Nevertheless, most Americans...

    Here’s a question: If you ask Americans which presidential candidate, George W. Bush or John F. Kerry, stands up to special interest groups, whom do they pick? Of course most people would choose Senator John “We’re coming, you’re going, and don’t let the door hit you on the way out” Kerry — right? Wrong. In a Gallup Poll taken in mid-February, 45 percent of those surveyed said the phrase “stands up to special-interest groups” applies to President Bush, while 44 percent said it applies to Sen. Kerry (D-Mass.). Of course, that’s a virtual tie, but one would think that after...

    LAW OF THE LAND60% of polled Americans:No homosexual marriageLatest survey shows residents rejecting same-sex matrimony by 2-to-1 margin Posted: February 9, 20045:00 p.m. Eastern © 2004 WorldNetDaily.com A new poll shows a majority of Americans do not want state laws that would make same-sex marriage legal. The survey was taken after the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court said last Wednesday in an advisory opinion same-sex couples are entitled to marriage and not an alternative, such as Vermont-style civil unions. Only full and equal marriage rights will fulfill its November ruling, four of the seven judges said, paving the way for the nation's first...

    One thing the Bush campaign should understand: John F. Kerry is not going to repeat the mistakes of the Mondales and Dukakis’sPolls are now showing that John Kerry, the likely Democratic nominee for President, can defeat President Bush. Some of those polls show that Kerry's lead is now into double digits. Bush-Cheney campaign operatives tell supporters not to worry. Kerry is the fourth Democrat to run for the Presidency from Massachusetts since 1980, the other three being Ted Kennedy (who was defeated by Jimmy Carter in the primaries), Paul Tsongas (who lost out to Bill Clinton, despite winning in New...
