WSJ/NBC poll: Yep, this race is statistically tied; Update: Tied at 47 in new National Journal poll too

posted at 8:02 pm on October 2, 2012 by Allahpundit

An hors d’oeuvre to whet your appetite for tomorrow night’s debate. Three different national polls released yesterday also showed the race within the margin of error, so yes, Romney’s very much within striking distance. In fact:

The sample of *registered* voters is 45D/39R/14I; figure that the sample of likelies is another two or three points more Republican and that’s not a half bad estimate of election-day turnout. (Both Scott Rasmussen and Romney’s pollster Neil Newhouse are expecting something on the order of D+3.) More from NBC:

Obama edges Romney by three points among likely voters, 49 percent to 46 percent, which is within the survey’s margin of error. Obama’s lead was five points, 50 percent to 45 percent, in the NBC/WSJ poll released two weeks ago, following the political conventions…

[A]mong voters expressing the highest interest in the election, Obama and Romney are essentially tied (49 percent to 48 percent).

And two key pillars of Obama’s political coalition – Latinos and young voters – are much less interested in the election than they were in 2008…

Given the increased economic optimism, Obama and Romney are nearly tied on which candidate would better handle the economy, with 45 percent picking Romney and 42 percent choosing Obama.

I’m not so sure that the uptick lately in O’s numbers on the economy is due to any bona fide optimism. NBC says they’re seeing movement among Republicans and indies too, but most of it is coming from Democrats. That’s no surprise: The closer we get to election day, the more people’s views of O’s performance will be colored by their preference for him or against him. Democrats are getting their game faces on, so it’s time to convince themselves that things are much rosier than they actually are. Note the sharp increase starting in August as casual Democratic partisans started coming home:

They had to tell themselves that the economy’s improving in order to justify voting Democratic, so that’s what they’re telling themselves. I think you’re seeing the same thing happen with this result, which is a disgrace:

Under normal circumstances, i.e. without an era-defining presidential election looming five weeks from now, I think you’d see something there on the order of 35/55. As it is, Democrats need to circle the wagons and pretend like the Foreign Policy President wasn’t (a) inexcusably negligent about Chris Stevens’s security in Benghazi and (b) a shameless liar about whether the attack was planned or spontaneous afterward.

Update: Dead heat.

Romney led in the poll among independents, 49 percent to 41 percent, with both candidates winning more than 90 percent support from their respective parties. The survey had Obama winning 81 percent of the nonwhite vote and Romney carrying 55 percent of white voters.

In estimating the turnout on Nov. 6, the poll projects an electorate that is 74 percent white, 11 percent African-American, and 8 percent Latino. The likely-voter party splits are 36 percent Democratic, 29 percent Republican, and 30 percent independent.

The estimates are similar to the 2008 turnout, when, according to CNN exit polling, 74 percent of voters were white, 13 percent black, and 9 percent Latino, with Democratic turnout at 39 percent, Republicans at 32 percent, and independents at 29 percent.

All even — with a D+7 sample? Oh my.

How about one of those dandy studies focusing on exactly what kind of person responds to the pollsters, all 9% of them, how educated they are, what kind of technology they’re familiar with, how often they read, and what they read, as opposed to simply watching the MSM, how old they tend to be, and the psychological profile of someone who tends to answer questions asked by a random caller.

What exactly is the profile of the average political poll responder?

The Anti-psychotic Meds they’ve been prescribed are running out as fast as they can get to the drug store and they just aren’t working! The Collusion prep at the TV networks must be on overdrive! Not a one of them is going to get any sleep tonight, as they practice their Romney blew it and Obama won coverage. Is anybody going to keep a watch on these clowns on Election night?

Both Scott Rasmussen and Romney’s pollster Neil Newhouse are expecting something on the order of D+3.

That’s what the said, but also according to Rasmussen, party affiliation for Republicans is at a record high:

Aug 2012: R: 37.6% D: 33.3% Other: 29.2%

Plus, also from Rasmussen, the congressional ballot preference is +4 for Republicans:

Generic Congressional Ballot: Republicans 45%, Democrats 41%

So I’m not so sure about the D+3 turnout. Something to consider Mr. Pundit. No?

In the National Journal poll Romney leads independents by 8 points, which means they oversampled Dems, so Romney is leading. Period. End of story.

Democrats are getting their game faces on, so it’s time to convince themselves that things are much rosier than they actually are. Note the sharp increase starting in August as casual Democratic partisans started coming home:

As far as the numbers on the economy, you have Bill Clinton tell them at the convention that prosperity is right around the corner – you’re just not “feeling” it yet. And Democrats bought it hook, line and sinker.

itsspideyman on October 2, 2012 at 8:57 PM

Polling is completely worthless at this time – and Urban – tell the major east coast papers and all the TV stations to save their money. After the completely fraudulent WaPo poll the strategy to depress turnout is finished. Conservatives cannot wait to vote. They hate the MSM and cannot wait to hammer them. The underlying particulars of the country’s feelings are finally coming to the top. The issue – can the democrats rally their partisans in Ohio and Florida? The popular vote will go to Romney. Obama will have to hope the states break his way. I expect they will not. It will be 45 months with unemployment over 8%, voter enthusiasm deficit, losing on the economy and foreign policy, smaller gender gap, Univision dealing a might blow with Hispanics, youth voter enthusiasm lower, and the populace aghast at a dead ambassador with a sleeping administration at the wheel.

It is all breaking perfectly to begin the cleansing process of getting rid of the single most corrupt and incompetent adminstration in US history.

Zomcon JEM on October 2, 2012 at 8:58 PM

I think the “tilt” outcry has had some effect.

But, when polls show Romney winning middle-income and splitting as well as he does in some groups, reality has to kick in.

Can’t lose white males and middle-income, and split college educated, and lose heavy.

budfox on October 2, 2012 at 9:00 PM

Curtiss on October 2, 2012 at 8:24 PM

The R+4 number is from August. We’re still waiting on the September numbers. Apparently, Rasmussen is seeing something on the ground right now, so his sample is leaning more Democrat. Perhaps it’s still a sugar high from the convention. Personally, I think the turnout will be something between R+2-D+2.

TarheelBen on October 2, 2012 at 9:00 PM

TarheelBen on October 2, 2012 at 9:00 PM

Can’t see a +R number – I think D+3 maybe is too pessimistic but I think it will be a small +D number.

That still won’t be enough on the popular vote for Obama.

I would, however, like to see Blue Clay Boy explain the totally dark side of the moon “poll” that came out yesterday here in New Hampshire, which shows O’bamna by some divine intervention increasing his NH lead over Mitt from 4 points to 17 points in 3 weeks.

Doesn’t pass any smell test, especially when one goes to the UNH “Polling Center” pdf and they refuse to ID their sample demographics.

There is aways the last minute thing that can pop up – but absent that Romney has to be pretty happy where he is – and advertising in LA. He knows something.

Zomcon JEM on October 2, 2012 at 9:12 PM

Even though it may be tied across the board, I’m worried that’s because the deep red state are evening out the numbers, especially in the swing states, where Ohio’s number’s (even when corrected) still bother me.

National Journal poll looks good for Romney

New Suffolk Poll of Florida shows Romney down by 3, just another poor swing state result.

NBC/Wall St Journal poll looks like what the end result will be, imo.

New MU Law poll out tomorrow for Wisconsin. They nailed the recall and showed both Obama and Baldwin with huge leads a few weeks ago. Many rumors here in WI that the Romney campaign has written off WI now.

Got an invitation today for a Thompson event/fundraiser at Harley Davidson in a few weeks with Paul Ryan as a “special guest.” Ryan is also coming to a local hotel for a fundraiser in a few days. The fact he’s not making any real campaign appearances in his home state is more evidence that WI is off the table.

Pork-Chop on October 2, 2012 at 8:09 PM

this year has seen a sharp drop in the response rate. The samples they are using are self selected, and, with a response rate of 9%, small correlations of affiliation or voting preferences with response rate can drastically skew the poles without any deliberate bias.
It may well be that Romney really has a 10% national lead, a complete blowout, but it is being hidden by an inadvertent sampling bias. There is no way to know for sure until the election.

He died about five years ago, and ever since he’s been voting a straight Democratic ticket.

Like a football game with crummy referees… the Republicans need to score a healthy margin of points to compensate for such shenanigans.

Gave up Drudge a long time ago. Those silly sirens are annoying, among other things.

Much like you two’s comments.

This link was on another thread and it looks like those of us who said there are money problems in the Romney campaign are 100% correct…

The new Washington Times poll…

Obama 50
Romney 41

Good partisan split of D +3

You’re a typical liberal when it comes to finances. For some strange reason, you think that the campaign that ISN’T spending an excessive amount of money is the one with money problems.

Pure irony.

Uh, yeah, when you’re getting massively outspent in the swing states, which causes you to fall far behind in many, I’d say it’s a problem.

Tonight I got a call from the ROmney campaign asking for a contribution of at least three dollars…don’t know why that amount…and I told the operator that I would donate as soon as Romney is up in the polls. No reason to donate to a sinking ship.

38% of White votes mean a certain defeat for Obama…

Let’s hope it’s 30% or less.

Times poll obviously an outlier. Especially when Rasmussen, CNN, and NBC have it tighter.

And oops, NBC has it tied in Florida and Virginia. Oblowme had big leads there in the NBC poll after the convention.

Haven’t seen any of the internals for the NBC poll yet.

Get off mommy’s computer and go back to playing Hello Kitty Island Adventure!

Gee, how can anyone trust those poll numbers? Aren’t they skewed?

Another BS poll from notes BS artist pollers. Look, they are fabricated. Zero is done and they all know it. He’s been done for while. They are working as hard as they can to deligitimize Romney’s win.
