  • What Convinced an Undecided or Democrat to Vote for McCain? (Vanity)

    11/03/2008 1:04:13 PM PST · by Sneakyuser · 11 replies · 609+ views
    Was it a particular subject or conversation you had with a relative, friend, co-worker or neighbor? Or, articles that you emailed about Obama's views on his radical friends, abortion, the wars (and war on terror), the economy, explaining real capitalism vs. socialism/communism, or unfair media bias? Did you share crucial Youtube links or have people sample Fox News, talk radio and sites like this one? Were you able to at least clear up their unfounded beliefs about particular lies about Bush, McCain/Palin and Joe the Plumber?
  • Mason Dixon Virginia: Obama 47%, McCain 44% (9% undecided mostly white)

    11/01/2008 8:21:56 PM PDT · by mathwhizz · 68 replies · 2,345+ views
    A new poll commissioned by The Virginian-Pilot concludes the state remains up for grabs. The survey of 625 likely voters found 47 percent supported Obama, 44 percent preferred McCain and a crucial 9 percent were undecided. Because the poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points, the race is technically a dead heat. The telephone survey was conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research Inc. on Wednesday and Thursday. J. Bradford Coker, who oversaw the survey, said the ultimate outcome in Virginia and elsewhere might hinge on whether undecided white voters are willing to vote for...
  • Mason-Dixon: Obama 47, McCain 45 (7% mostly white are undecided)

    11/01/2008 5:51:28 PM PDT · by mathwhizz · 70 replies · 2,328+ views
    The poll, by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research, shows Sen. Barack Obama leading Sen. John McCain 47 percent to 45 percent, well within the poll's 4-point margin of error. With the race essentially tied going into the last lap, Florida's 27 electoral votes remain the biggest battleground prize for either candidate. "To use a Florida analogy," said polling director Brad Coker, "these numbers have stayed in a very narrow cone for both candidates." McCain's best hope, he said, may be the fact that the 7 percent of voters who remain undecided are overwhelmingly white — and could decide to vote against...

    If current survey trends continue, Obama will finish with less than 50 percent in the polls. Even discounting the Nader vote (some people never learn), the undecided voters could tip the race either way. How will they break? Since there is no incumbent, they cannot automatically be assigned to the challenger; and since turnout is likely to be huge, the current undecided voters will probably make their way to the polls and cast their ballots. But for whom? At the beginning of this contest, Obama effectively made the case that the election was a referendum on Bush's performance in office....

    Yesterday's Gallup shocker (a 2 point gap in the "likely voter" model) is going to have a follow up today if Drudge is right: A Rasmussen poll narrowing the gap to 3 points. Now we know why John McCain and Sarah Palin were both in PA yesterday. The election is tightening across the map as those of us who remember 1976 have been predicting all along. Barack Obama represents a much more radical alternative than Jimmy Carter did in '76, and Carter's unusual profile sent voters by the millions towards Gerald Ford in the closing days. The same thing is...

    Do "undecided" voters actually make their choices before they realize? That is a question University of Virginia psychology professor Brian Nosek and his colleagues are trying to answer. "Many people, especially early in the political process, declare themselves as undecided," Nosek said. "But while they have consciously said that they are undecided, they unconsciously may have already made a choice." And in a close election, undecided voters may determine the outcome the moment they make their decisions known on Election Day. Nosek and colleagues Mahzarin Banaji of Harvard University and Tony Greenwald of the University of Washington developed the Implicit...

    Karl Rove made a statement in passing on Fox news got passed over, but as time has passed I've decided it is the unspoken key to this election. Paraphrased: Whatever Sen. Obama is polling on election day is the percentage of votes he will receive. That's what happened in the primaries. It's important for him to be over 50%. In those states where he is under 50% he will be in trouble. It took a while for it to sink it, but what he is saying is that the undecided vote will go almost 100% against Obama. When you look...

    The Weekly Standard ^ | 10/27/08 | Arnon A. Mishkin
    As Election Day draws near, people are wondering if the presidential race will tighten. Will the undecideds swing to McCain, or will Obama continue to maintain his 4 to 11 point lead? Some point to a "Bradley effect" suggesting that voters are hiding their true feelings from pollsters because of Obama's race, while others say the Bradley effect either never existed or no longer exists. People who think there is a Bradley effect believe that the substantial majority of undecideds are likely to vote for McCain, enabling him to close some of the gap. McCain should win a larger share...

    "Overall, 12% of voters remain persuadables who favor one candidate or the other but could change their mind. Those, plus the 3% who remain undecided, are the target audience for both candidates in tonight’s debate." Don't allow the media progandist polls to fulfill their intent-which is to disspirit you. And there's one sure fire way to close these polls overnight- and that's to allow Gov. Palin to give a national address, prime time. When Gov. Palin has appeared on national tv, unfiltered, we get a bump in the polls. McCain Camp, get "Prime Time Palin"- on national tv.

    Tuesday night's presidential debate was good entertainment. Both candidates were animated and loose throughout a wide-ranging discussion. Sen. Barack Obama did well in Sen. John McCain's favorite format. Mr. McCain was more focused and sharp than in the first debate, though the cameras above him made his balding pate more prominent. Tom Brokaw was often a distraction: Did he really need over a hundred words -- including the name "Sherard Cowper-Coles" -- to ask about Afghanistan? Mr. McCain's advocates were cheered by him advancing the theme that Mr. Obama lacks a record of accomplishment or bipartisanship in the Senate. Mr....

More than a dozen undecided voters gathered in a lecture hall, where they recorded their immediate reactions to the presidential candidates' responses using number keypads. Six of the 14 voters said they were more likely to vote for McCain after the 90-minute session, with four saying the same of Obama. Four said they remained unswayed.

Over at The Next Right, Sean Oxendine looks at final polling and final results for all of the caucuses and primaries. Deep down, we know that the question of whether Obama underperforms his polls only matters in a few states — New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Ohio, maybe Indiana (where Obama overperformed his final polls). In the first three, Obama underperforms, and adding the underperformance factor...

    Based on that question, there are signs that undecided voters may be more inclined to move to McCain than to Obama. The largest number of undecideds – 38 percent – would rather get advice from McCain – that’s nearly three times as many as the 13 percent that would go to Obama. The remaining say “neither” (27 percent) or are unsure (18 percent). Furthermore, independent voters pick McCain by a 15-point margin (41 percent – 26 percent). As one would expect, most Obama voters — 78 percent — say they would go to him for advice. Similarly, fully 83 percent...

In the closing days of the election season, analysts say, voters who tell pollsters that they're still undecided ultimately vote for the challenger, often by a large margin. With most polls still showing Mr. Bush below the 50-percent mark — the magic number campaign officials consider a reliable portent of victory — the anti-incumbent trend among undecided voters is...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The fate of the 2004 U.S. presidential election could come down to undecided voters but nobody knows how many there are and what they may do. Traditionally, voters who remain uncommitted in the late stages of an election tend to vote more for challengers and against incumbents, which would be a good sign for Democrat John Kerry (news - web sites). But political analysts are not sure that rule will hold this year. "All the traditional wisdom needs to be thrown out of the window this year. This race is not following a historical pattern," said Scott...

    WASHINGTON - Political consultants get six-figure salaries to figure out what turns voters for or against a candidate. Political scientists write books and scholarly papers about campaigns, focusing on the strategies that produced victory -- and defeat. You don't need an advanced poli-sci degree to know that the run for the White House depends on a couple of key voting groups: each candidate's ideological base and independents or swing voters, who often are undecided until the last minute. Appealing to both at the same time is tricky business. The just-completed presidential debates illustrate the point. President Bush and Sen. John...

    [excerpts] Coe said he might vote for a Republican president for the first time in his life. He's convinced that Kerry, if elected, would raise taxes on small-business owners like himself and leave the nation vulnerable to another terrorist attack. And while he called Bush "a flawed man and a flawed candidate," he said the president had at least established a track record in leading the nation. Restaurant worker June Worrell has always known she was going to vote, she just didn't know for whom — until after the third debate Wednesday. Now she's in the Bush camp. "The president...

    Did anybody listen to Rush's conversation with a Mrs. Dorothy Asdale. The gist of the story is that Mrs. Asdale was quoted in a Will Lester AP column as being swayed by kerry, when her only news "information" was Rush Limbaugh because that was the only radio station that comes in clear in Yuma, AZ. Well Ms. Asdale was contacted by Rush and she appeared on the program. There were some niceities and then Ms. Asdale explained why she was voting for kerry, it was because of immigration. She admitted that kerry didn't answer the question about immigration, but since...

    EDINA, Minn. -- Brian Foldery wanted specific plans from John F. Kerry in the third presidential debate, not another recitation of the things President Bush has done wrong. After 90 minutes Wednesday night, the 29-year-old insulation salesman was impressed. Kerry had some good detail, he thought, when he talked about what to do with the budget deficit. Still, something was missing. When Foldery listens to Kerry, somehow the Democratic nominee just never fully connects. There was that wisecrack about how he had "married up" to his heiress wife. Foldery thought it was "smug," not funny. And he cringed when Kerry...

    Persuadable voters give Kerry high marks By WILL LESTER The Associated Press 10/15/2004, 3:02 a.m. ET WASHINGTON (AP) — Persuadable voters watching the presidential debates tended to give higher marks to Democrat John Kerry than President Bush, but many sound reluctant to make a final decision in the presidential race. "In the debates, Kerry's intelligence came through. He just seemed really thoughtful," said Mindy Kershner of San Francisco, who is still not ready to commit. "I probably won't decide until I actually vote." The three presidential debates, including the final one Wednesday night, have not answered questions some of these...
