Pollmania: Romney tied with Obama nationally, leads by a point in Virginia; Update: Leads by two in Florida

posted at 8:41 pm on April 25, 2012 by Allahpundit

I owe you something cheery after yesterday’s descent into eeyorish madness.

On the one hand, the economy’s supposed to be our big advantage, right? Maybe … not so much:

That’s a nifty example of why Democrats are so keen to frame the election as a choice between two visions rather than as a referendum on The One. Viewed in isolation, his economic program is shinola and voters know it. The key for lefties is making sure they don’t view it in isolation. On the other hand, there’s this:


The second data set shows the results when voters are asked whether they’d definitely or never vote for Obama. The column for independents is eyepopping, especially when you consider that they split evenly at 37 when the same question is asked about Romney. Problem is, Fox used such a small sample of indies for this poll that the margin of error for the subgroup ended up being eight percent. That’s why Romney merely ties O overall at 46 percent even though he wins independents by 13 points — there simply aren’t enough of the latter in this sample to make up for Obama’s enormous lead among Democrats. (The sample splits 44D/38R.) Even so, it’s worth paying attention to this metric going forward. How many anti-Obama votes are already banked among independents? And how many of them who claim they’ll never, ever, evah vote for O will rethink if we end up with two or three straight months of solid job growth?

Speaking of which, go read Jay Cost on the perils of trusting polls in an era when 90 percent of the electorate is split between the parties and locked down on each side, leaving the fate of the country in the hands of 10 percent who don’t pay much attention to politics and maybe don’t know what they’re talking about a lot of the time. Quote: “They are at the least fickle and at the worst maddening, as they regularly tell pollsters they have settled opinions when in fact they do not!” Makes those “I’ll never vote for Obama” results a little harder to interpret, huh? Oh, and here’s the Virginia poll from Rasmussen showing Mitt up by a point. We’re expected to take that state this time, I think. It’s in the same group as Indiana and North Carolina, just purple enough to break for a Democrat when everything’s going their way but a mighty heavy lift under normal-ish circumstances. That’s the difference between 2008 and 2012, I hope.

Exit question: How’s everyone out there feeling about this strategy?

“There is a pretty broad view that President Obama is a good family man and decent guy, but may be in over his head,” said Mr. Gillespie, a former counselor to George W. Bush, who was brought into the Romney campaign this month. He said the argument against re-election would be built around the suggestion that Mr. Obama “has not displayed strong leadership, but failed leadership and weak leadership.”

Update: Just as I’m writing this, the “Purple Poll” is out with data from battleground states. Romney’s up two in Florida and is tied in Colorado but trails narrowly in Virginia and Ohio. His favorable rating in CO, VA, OH, and FL, respectively:

Second look at the likability gap?

Yes, it was a poll COMMISSIONED by Fox, but Fox didn’t actually do the poll:

Anderson Robbins Research (D) / Shaw & Company Research (R)

It was done by a combination of both a Democrat and a Republican polling house and it oversampled Democrats:

The Fox News Poll is conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R).

The poll is based on live telephone interviews with a national sample of 915 registered voters, and was conducted April 22-24, 2012.

Landline and cell phone telephone numbers were randomly selected for inclusion in the survey using a probability proportionate to size method, which means that phone numbers for each state are proportional to the number of voters in each state.

Results based on the full sample have a margin of sampling error of ± 3%

Results among subgroups have larger sampling errors, including:

Democrats (n = 391) ± 5%
Republicans (n = 341) ± 5%
Independents (n = 155) ± 8%

The average person is now on guard when there’s a pollster on the phone. Many of them will be afraid, untrusting, they will wonder if the person on the other end is really a pollster or perhaps someone in their greedy union, someone down at the local DNC office, an OWS loon or an SEIU goon, etc.

Per Rasmussen
Most Americans believe the price of gas could reach $5 a gallon in the next few months. Forty-four percent (44%) believe government regulations are primarily to blame, while 32% point to speculators.

A president’s Job Approval rating is one of the best indicators for assessing his chances of reelection. Typically, the president’s Job Approval rating on Election Day will be close to the share of the vote he receives. Currently, 46% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president’s job performance. Fifty-three percent (53%) at least somewhat disapprove.

Intensity of support or opposition can have an impact on campaigns. Currently, 24% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -17 (see trends).

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows Mitt Romney earning 49% of the vote, while President Obama attracts support from 44%. Three percent (3%) would vote for a third party candidate, while another four percent (4%) are undecided.

MikeA on April 25, 2012 at 9:24 PM

uh yeah, “Rosengate” is gonna give the anti-equal pay/ mandatory ultrasound /call women sluts party the female vote. puh-leeze. Mitt is getting a post-primary bounce I’m sure he’ll get one after the convention too trust me no on the left is panicking

DBear on April 25, 2012 at 9:18 PM

Why would I trust you? You’re a hate-spewing party-line bleating automoton that melts down regularly. Your opinion means nothing.

An incumbant within the margin of error this early in the campaign is in trouble. The attacks on Obama about to start in May from all the GOP SuperPACs are funded 10 to 1 over Obama’s.

And the economy’s flailing yet again- a yearly occurence.

All Captain Hope and Change has is dog attacks. The fact that they’re coming out this early shows you the level of desperation.

Well he certainly wasn’t going to endorse Herr Doktor… LoL

annoyinglittletwerp on April 25, 2012 at 9:22 PM

I think he was being loyal to Newt and waiting for him to bow out.

gophergirl on April 25, 2012 at 9:25 PM

You panty-wastes in flyover country eat this up. What? Why aren’t all you gun-toting, redneck, pick ‘em up driving Rombots here at RomneyAir not getting ready to tune into your almighty preacher Sean? He’s on in 2 minutes.

DBear on April 25, 2012 at 9:18 PM

Yeah, after all O’bama can run in his Record, right?

Now please, go teach some more Hate Republicans 101 to your niece and nephew. After all, you want them to grow up to be good little Useful Democrat Idiots now, don’t you?

Del Dolemonte on April 25, 2012 at 9:26 PM

He does seem to be a little less of himself tonight. He must be running out of steam…or the assimilation has begun.

DBare has stepped up like a real trooper though.

Even if his stuff is kind of lame.

cozmo on April 25, 2012 at 9:21 PM

I can’t imagine being that annoying on purpose. Of course I can’t imagine being being stupid enough to be a liberal either.

gophergirl on April 25, 2012 at 9:26 PM

I think he was being loyal to Newt and waiting for him to bow out.

gophergirl on April 25, 2012 at 9:25 PM

That would imply that the guy has integrity.

Our betters here have assured us that he does not.

cozmo on April 25, 2012 at 9:26 PM

angryed, honda, ddrintn, buckshot bill, and other Obama workers awol tonight?

Basilsbest on April 25, 2012 at 8:55 PM

Waiting for talking points.

cozmo on April 25, 2012 at 8:59 PM

Here ya go.

ddrintn on April 25, 2012 at 9:27 PM

Mitt had a polygamist great-grandfather. Not grandfather. Obama had a poligamist father. And ate dogs.

Rusty Allen on April 25, 2012 at 9:15 PM

…and scr**ed Michelle.

MikeA on April 25, 2012 at 9:27 PM

Poor VietVet_Dave, no one loves his Obamassiah. Hey Davey, snort some reality. For the first time in Barry’s political life he’s being judged on his promises. Sucks to back a loser, doesn’t it?

GarandFan on April 25, 2012 at 9:28 PM

Hmmmmmm, nice to know Rick Perry has the ability to man up and endorse the GOP candidate. Santorum’s a petty sewer rat.

BettyRuth on April 25, 2012 at 9:16 PM

Wow Rick Perry supports Romney months after getting out of the primary. Santorum hasn’t even been out a month. Why don’t you give him a change..

I cannot stand Mitt supporters.. Y’all are so freaking charming and gracious//

melle1228 on April 25, 2012 at 9:28 PM

C’mon, Happy Nomad! Santorum has had what,2 weeks to lick his wounds and STILL can’t be bothered to endorse our candidate? No, he’s a small, petty, butthurt man.

BettyRuth on April 25, 2012 at 9:29 PM

…and scr**ed Michelle.

MikeA on April 25, 2012 at 9:27 PM

Objection…assumes facts not in evidence. In fact, neither of his children resemble Trayvon in the slightest degree.

BobMbx on April 25, 2012 at 9:29 PM

cozmo on April 25, 2012 at 8:59 PM

ddrintn on April 25, 2012 at 9:27 PM

When PA is rated a toss up this far out you know the Dems are in trouble.

Del Dolemonte on April 25, 2012 at 9:29 PM

Yep, Rombo had a polygamist grandfather, can you believe it? Rombo is unfit for any office with that sort of history.

Bishop on April 25, 2012 at 9:12 PM

Obama’s daddy was a bigamist on the day that POTUS was born. I guess that you think that he should resign forthwith. He is obviously unfit for any office with that sort of history.

Resist We Much on April 25, 2012 at 9:31 PM

C’mon, Happy Nomad! Santorum has had what,2 weeks to lick his wounds and STILL can’t be bothered to endorse our candidate? No, he’s a small, petty, butthurt man.

BettyRuth on April 25, 2012 at 9:29 PM

And Rick Perry had MONTHS. Did you also not realize that Bella has been in and out of the frickin hospital the last few weeks? I don’t think endorsing someone who was horrible to him in the campaign is on his radar right now.

melle1228 on April 25, 2012 at 9:31 PM

Don’t harsh his mellow, that’s the best he could come up with.
