Virginia: Obama 51, Romney 43

posted at 8:32 pm on May 1, 2012 by Allahpundit

Remember, according to WaPo’s back-of-the-envelope calculations, Romney’s probably looking at a ceiling of around 290 electoral votes — and that’s assuming he retakes Virginia and Colorado. If Obama holds onto the former, Mitt’s down to 277; if O holds onto the latter too, Romney drops to 268. Which means another term of Hopenchange.

No margin for error. Dude, I’m nervous:

Barack Obama continues to look like the favorite to win Virginia this fall. He has a 51-43 lead over Mitt Romney in the state. We have consistently found Obama leading in Virginia by margins similar to his 6 point victory there in 2008- he led Romney by 6 in December, 4 in July, 11 in May (right after the killing of Osama bin Laden), and 6 last March.

Adding Bob McDonnell to the ticket wouldn’t do much to help Romney’s prospects in Virginia. The spread remains exactly the same at 51/43 with him in the mix. McDonnell has solid approval numbers with a 46/36 spread, but isn’t overwhelmingly popular…

Another interesting angle in Virginia is the candidacy of former Congressman Virgil Goode as the Constitution Party candidate for President. We find him polling at 5% in a three way contest with Obama’s lead over Romney expanding to 12 points at 50-38. It seems unlikely Goode would ultimately get 5% but anything he gets could help flip the state to Obama given how small Romney’s margin for error there is.

PPP points out that Romney’s split among Republicans is 83/12 right now compared to O’s 91/6 split among Democrats. That gap will shrink as Santorum and Gingrich fans come around to accepting Mitt as nominee, so this race will tighten. Likewise, his overall favorable rating is 38/52, but that’s because fully 21 percent of McCain voters rate him unfavorably right now. That too will change. I’m just not sure it’ll change enough to erase an eight-point lead. And in case you’re wondering about the sample, it’s almost precisely the same as the exit poll four years ago. In 2008 the state split 39D/33R/27I; PPP’s poll splits 39D/32R/29I. Second look at Vice President Bob McDonnell? (I know the poll claims he wouldn’t make a difference, but c’mon.)

Fortunately Mitt’s working on the all-important Mike Bloomberg endorsement, which should dazzle the media and the “No Labels” crowd and pretty much no one else. Here he is in Bloomy’s hometown this morning, countering Obama’s Bin Laden football-spiking with a joint appearance with Rudy Giuliani while some angry liberal in the crowd screeches that he’s a racist. Thanks to Greg Hengler for the clip.

Couple problems with VA. It’s one of the few states that has done well under Obamunism due to all that hot lard brimming over from DC.

And a bunch of liberals are moving there from MD – to get away from onerous taxes and regulation – and they’re promptly turning the place into another Maryland.

gsherin on May 1, 2012 at 8:38 PM

So then PPP is predicting a 2008 turnout model in VA, where everybody rational understands the turnout to be significantly more conservative than that, if not in the vicinity of 2010…

It’s PPP. They make their polls serious close to election day in order to protect their credibility. This far out though, it’s about narrative control and keeping their Kos friends close.

Gingotts on May 1, 2012 at 8:39 PM

Ooh, shocker. Suburbs of DC (populated with federal employees) tilt heavily toward the big government liberal.

CurtZHP on May 1, 2012 at 8:39 PM

I still contend this particular election will have the most inaccurate polling this country has ever seen. It will appear as though hope and change has it all wrapped up until 6:00 on election night and then, then you will see progressive despair.

I used to live in northern Virginia, and I have to say, it is the most left wing place I have ever lived. By far.

And I’m writing to you from California.

Virginia will be, drastically, the most difficult battleground for state that Romney has a chance of winning. (Penn, Wisc, etc are not even on the board IMO).

If he loses Virginia, he will have to win CO, which is also very difficult. I’m still optimistic. Obama has to go into historically Red states and win. Romney just needs to keep them.

Nessuno on May 1, 2012 at 8:41 PM

Well sure, if you poll heavily in NoVa, you’ll find these type of results.

ButterflyDragon on May 1, 2012 at 8:41 PM

No margin for error. Dude, I’m nervous:

Went and actually downloaded the idiot thing and so many cross-polls (Obama vs Paul WHO CARES???) it was near impossible to find out what percentage of dems/ind/rep were polled. It`s probably in there somewhere.

Also, it was another telephone poll.

Pass. When they do a 50-50 of registered voters with specific useful questions then I`ll pay attention.

Hey, there’s no complaint here – just don’t send your carpetbagging liberals to VA! No way VA goes into the Obama column – you can start earning dividends on that bet on the way to the bank. PERIOD.

Now if only I could wake ALLEN’S campaign. What a f__king slug!

Apologetic California on May 1, 2012 at 8:57 PM

========================================================
Allahpundit, do your freaking homework before you post nonsense
================================================================

OK, I will give some hints on why this poll is an out and out lie and does not add up.

(1)
Let’s first look at the facts on who voted for Obama in 08. A lot of them were first-time voters and voters all in trance with the give-him-a-chance and we want change.

You really tell me that 3 years of Obama did not impact any of them and they want still more? The polls shows 51% vs 53% in 08, or, 4% of those who voted for Obama would now no longer vote for him. Unemployment went up by that amount but something tells me there are a whole bunch more not wanting to vote for him or not that motivated to go to the polls for Obama this time. Why is nobody trying to figure out these real numbers?

(2)
Etchy Sketch does not draw the Palin crowd but he will draw the crowd of people who are afraid for what socialist Obama and his minions are doing. Voter turn out is key and if it is going to be a negative campaign fest, the afraid-crowd will only grow. And regarding the Palin crowd. The Palin crowd will go out and vote for the senate and house tea partiers and that is what Palin will motivate them to do. How much of them will vote for Romney or in disgust will keep it blank or just write in Sarah Palin, who knows except Romney who can either further alienate them or listen to them.

(3)
so were does this all add up, what conclusion can you make, apart from the rediculous democratic oversampling in this poll?

a bunch of noise or also called Horse Manure.

rob verdi on May 1, 2012 at 8:57 PM

Dude, it’s the beginning of May. You’d think someone so nervous wouldn’t perpetuate the self-fulfilling ‘we’re doomed’ prophecy.

Anyway, it will all hinge on indies. McDonnell won by a large margin among them, which is why he was able to trounce the Dem despite liberal NoVa. Pretty sure Romney will take my county in VA, regardless.

Ummm, is this that shocking? I agree with PPP 1000% percent. If the party splits in 2012 are exactly the same as they are in 2008 Obama is going to win. Duh.

The question is whether that was a once every 30 years type phenomenon or a permananent shift in party affiliation for presidential elections.

If the split mirrors 2008, Bummer wins in a landslide. If the split mirrors 2010, Romney wins in a landslide. If the split falls exactly in between, it’s going to be a 2004-type election outcome. It’s not exactly rocket science.

I happen to think that the split isn’t going to be anywhere near as favorable to the Dems as it was in 2008.

We Palinistas never said she’d be up 25% nationally if she had run. It was the rabid Romney supporters who were saying essentially that about their guy for the past 3 years. Most of us ‘nistas always admitted that getting her elected would be like climing Mount Everest. What we did and do also say was that she wouldn’t really be doing any worse than Romney is right now. And unlike Romney, she’d have a fired-up voter base on which to rely and build upon.

Here’s my report from the ground from the epicenter of Soviet VA (Yes, Jim Moron’s district):

I realize it isn’t summer yet, but if the number of Obama bumper stickers are any indicator of his enthusiasm here, he is well off the pace from 2008.

In 2008, I could take about a 5 minute drive and probably not have enough fingers and toes to count the Obama 2008 bumper stickers. This cycle, I think I have seen about 30 Obama “2012″ bumper stickers in total.

The commies will still turn out for him here, make no mistake. Jim Moron still pulled in 61% in 2010 against a very mainstream Republican. The best we can hope for is turnout will be down enough for the rest of the state to pick up the slack.

I plan to campaign for Romney here.
