More polls: Romney now within three points in Michigan, two in Pennsylvania

posted at 8:01 pm on October 8, 2012 by Allahpundit

In case there was any lingering shred of doubt that Romney helped himself considerably last week, this ought to finish it off. Michigan:

Obama’s 10 percentage point lead (47%-37%) in a poll conducted last month by EPIC-MRA of Lansing dropped to 3 points (48% to 45%), according to the poll of 600 likely voters conducted by EPIC-MRA of Lansing. The gap between Romney and Obama was within the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points…

“Romney has come back like gangbusters,” said EPIC-MRA President Bernie Porn. “Whether or not it’s long-lasting, only time will tell, but probably the remaining debates will be key.”

Conducted in the three days following the Wednesday debate, the poll showed more than five times as many Michiganders interviewed named Romney, not Obama, as the debate’s winner. Romney’s numbers improved most dramatically among independent and undecided voters.

Worth noting: Per the article, Romney’s closing the gap on O in Michigan even while other prominent Dems are expanding their leads. Debbie Stabenow went from being 11 points up on Pete Hoekstra last month to 20 points up now. That’s in line with Obama’s 2008 margin in Michigan of 16.5 points. Fast forward four years and she’s keeping pace with that advantage while he’s … now statistically tied with his Republican challenger. Must be a lot of left-leaning independents thinking of splitting their ballot to produce a result like that.

Meanwhile, in Pennsylvania [PDF]:

Barack Obama leads Mitt Romney in the Keystone State by 2 points (47%-45%), with 3% voting for Libertarian Candidate Gary Johnson…

Perhaps the biggest movement in SP&R’s latest poll is the increase in Mitt Romney’s favorable image in Pennsylvania. In the current poll Romney now holds a 48% to 42% favorable to unfavorable rating (or +6 positive) – making this the first time in not only our polling but virtually any other publicly-released PA poll showing the GOP challenger with a largely positive image. For instance, prior to the current poll Romney’s average favorable image in numerous statewide polls conducted by our firm from June through September was 39%, while his average unfavorable rating was 43%. So the current poll represents a 9-point jump in his positive image to the point where Romney now enjoys an even better positive image than the incumbent President, who now has a 50% favorable to 47% unfavorable rating (or only +3 positive). Plus, 76% of voters said they watched the first televised debate, with a net 2% saying they switched their vote from Obama to Romney based on what they saw. This switch, plus the increase in favorable ratings for the GOP nominee is clear evidence the debates have helped solidify the Keystone State as a tossup election in November and one well within Romney’s reach.

Caveat to this one: Susquehanna also had the the race within two points in Pennsylvania in two separate polls conducted in September. No other pollster has had the state closer than six points since September 1. On the other hand, this poll’s partisan split seems credible: It’s D+6 when voters are asked how they’re registered, which jibes with the 2008 state exit poll showing an advantage of D+7. And the surge in Romney’s favorables reflects what Pew found in its blockbuster earlier this afternoon. Go figure that after a summer of ads depicting him as a corporate pirate turned tax cheat and the most radically right-wing nominee since Goldwater, the public was pleasantly surprised to find that he’s a genial technocrat who knows his stuff better than Obama does. The Democrats set the bar low and Romney cleared it by 20 feet. That’s why his favorables have inflated.

As of early last month, Team Mitt and his conservative allies had spent next to nothing in Michigan and Pennsylvania, but Romney was talking tough about PA as recently as a week before the debate. Keep an eye out for news stories about American Crossroads, AFP, etc, starting to buy ads there; if that happens, then we’ll know that the private polling is showing the same momentum. In the meantime, enjoy the latest “celebrity” ad on behalf of the Empty Chair. I recognize exactly one person here, but who knows: Maybe there are votes to be had in the 18-29 demographic by having Z-listers making lame sight gags.

I think it is an absolute OUTRAGE to have President Obama susidizing with taxpayer money an industry that has no chance for success and that is Electric Vehicles.

It is wrong…Obama swoops in…throws cash….and when the cash runs out everyone loses their jobs.. And the people in Holland including your family suffer for it.

My cousin who volunteers at a Romney call center said that the tone of the calls has changed and that someone told her “I choked on my kool aid during the debate”.

I think the reason people are leaving Obama is because for the first time so many are beginning to realize they were lied to. It’s like catching the man of your dreams, the one you were to marry, in bed with another woman.

See if you can find out why he/she doesn’t like me. I think it may be something cozmo did.

I agree. Let’s not get complacent. But I have to say, there is a reassuring vibe that’s rippling across the nation right now. Like this nation has been holding it’s breath for so long, turning blue even and is now finally starting to exhale.
The Romney debate changed everything.

Perhaps people are realizing that don’t have to “settle”, there is a choice and chance for better days ahead. I, too, agree there’s a lot of work to be done before we can rest but I also agree there seems to be a growing sense across the land that the tide is turning.

At least with you handling the writing I’ll probably eventually see it on my desk. That Axe guy, well, lets just say, is slow. ; ) He has had that for months. Nothing, sound of crickets. I may have to let him go.

Got involved making a peach cake. Now I have to wait for the damn thing to cool. :(

katy the mean old lady on October 8, 2012 at 9:14 PM

I love peach cake.

Bmore on October 8, 2012 at 9:17 PM

As incredible as it sounds… I actually get that! lol!

thatsafactjack on October 8, 2012 at 9:08 PM

Good for you.

It took me forever to figure that one out. And I still mangled it.

Allah, someday, when all of us are old, we are going to look back on these days at HotAir with utter glee.
ted c on October 8, 2012 at 9:03 PM

Eh. I’m old enough to dwell in the glee now.
:D

..keep it going, folks, keep it going!

do you remember when I “felt it” in 1980??? It was when the ice hockey team beat the soviets in the olympics? I was only ten, so it may have been somethin’ else, but it was that gut instinct that America was a kick ass place and, while we let Dems hold the reins occasionally, they’re generally douchebags that talk a good game and can’t deliver.

I love peach cake.

Bmore on October 8, 2012 at 9:17 PM

So do I. That’s why I will soon have an azz the size of FLOTUS.

katy the mean old lady on October 8, 2012 at 9:19 PM

I wonder if they’d let me DJ at the old folks home? :)

thatsafactjack on October 8, 2012 at 9:10 PM

Allah will worry about breakin’ his hip but the rest of us will dance. Heck, 7% will smuggle in the booze.

ted c on October 8, 2012 at 9:19 PM

Bmore on October 8, 2012 at 9:16 PM

Well…that is, of course, entirely your call. It’s not my project, so I’ve got no input. You’re the producer/director in this one. :)

thatsafactjack on October 8, 2012 at 9:21 PM

We are all just socks now.
Bmore on October 8, 2012 at 9:10 PM

Sock it to me?

whatcat on October 8, 2012 at 9:22 PM

ted c on October 8, 2012 at 9:19 PM

Oh… I’ve got the feeling that Allah might surprise us all! He’d probably be the life of the party… and start a new blog, too!

thatsafactjack on October 8, 2012 at 9:23 PM

Is that arugula sprouts they are holding?

sorry if that was asked already.

thatsafactjack on October 8, 2012 at 9:21 PM

Well, once I realized initially Axe was in a stall with it, I recommended he bring you in on it. I was hopeful he had at least had the initiative to do that. Apparently I was mistaken. I’ll have to conference with him.

Bmore on October 8, 2012 at 9:24 PM

Me thinkin’ y’all are hankering for the QOTD !
LOL.
Oh, it’ll be SOO good, coz !!
