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.

True, true. I suppose when the screaming fades away and spatters of metaphorical blood are cleansed from the floor and the walls, we’ll place the last roll of film in the can and call it Silence of the Conservatives.

Presently, the damsel in distress is not Clarice Starling and the predator is anything but a demented psychiatrist. Rather, the protagonists are Tea Parties and less-than-perfectly orthodox conservatives, both of which are under attack from antagonists dedicated to a psychological humbug that makes the good a mortal enemy of whatever they deem to be perfect.

I call them Conservo-Gnostics – present day political descendants of an ancient religious sect who believed that the only true guide to eternal salvation existed in a body of arcane and esoteric knowledge they alone possessed and they alone could decipher and interpret.

Conservo-Gnostics maintain that they alone are the gate keepers of Conservative Orthodoxy and only those who hew with razor-edge precision to the official canon of Conservative praxis – be they politicians, journalistic pundits, Tea Party groups or radio talkers – may be deemed TRULY Conservative while those who, for whatever reason (support for the Iraq War, opposition to ending Medicare overnight, historical inaccuracies, inapt analogies, faulty grammar, etc.), fall short of the hallowed benchmark are branded as neocons, liberals, Troskyites or Bolsheviks and subsequently banished from the Burkean Shangri-La.

Far from contributing to the success of Movement Conservatism, they have, as the recent polls in PA indicate, detracted from it. But hey…the important thing for them is that they can feel really, really good about themselves and, if Romney should lose to Obama, will doubtless raise a supercilious eyebrow and say “See…I told you so.”

Good grief. If they could fellate themselves, they’d never leave the basement and if the GOP ever declared that it favored the decriminalization of marijuana, Gary Johnson would lose most of his supporters overnight.

And if you have a problem with me calling people who don’t support me a nutjob, you’re a nutjob too!” If not, why not? If not, why are you convinced that cozmo isn’t a troll?

I suppose that you would suggest to Romney that he run a television ad saying, “If you don’t support me, or are thinking about staying home, you’re a nutjob. So, make sure to vote for me. And if you have a problem with me calling people who don’t support me a nutjob, you’re a nutjob too!” If not, why not? If not, why are you convinced that cozmo isn’t a troll? That’s what he says just about every single thread. Either he’s a troll, or just isn’t smart.

Read this post of yours. I think your borderline unhinged.

Trust me cozmo is no troll..If you read HA much you would know that..:)

Laugh away. I’m not convinced that circling the wagons and calling anyone who doesn’t agree with you 100% names is smart strategy – if that’s what it is – sounds like Obama supporting strategy to me.

Are you really that thin skinned that an unnamed, faceless handle on a message board can affect how you are going to vote?

You do realize that you are doing the same thing by calling him a troll that you are accusing him of doing right?

gophergirl on October 8, 2012 at 11:16 PM

Is that troll cozmo gone yet? I can’t stand him, I mean me. No, wait, him.

Bmore on October 8, 2012 at 11:17 PM

Okay. Done feeding the troll.

besser tot als rot on October 8, 2012 at 10:34 PM

I think that’s a good idea.

NOOOOO, Not Abbie Sciuto! People say I look like her.

No. And No I’m not. I think his tactics are awful for his stated purpose. Either he is a troll and needs to be knocked down, or he needs to cease his counterproductive tactics.

I think you are right. He’s over at QOTD. You really should go after him some more. He is bad.

Hahaha…what a lame ad! What does that even mean??!

Hello ellifint! Hope all has been well with you. ; ) I’m just here waiting on that nasty troll to show back up.

Bmore on October 8, 2012 at 11:31 PM

Look. What people post on here is well nigh irrelevant for what any of the other commenters are going to do vis-a-vis the election. People who read HA and going to vote and vote how they want, regardless of what anyone says. But If people are going to try and persuade ill informed friends and colleagues with this “if you don’t support the guy I support, you’re a nut job,” I don’t think you’re going to be effective. They already get that from Team Obama; silly me, I thought we had the better arguments on policy, not just bravado.

besser tot als rot on October 8, 2012 at 11:32 PM

I did not know cozmo was a troll. Huh! The things you discover!

John the Libertarian on October 8, 2012 at 11:38 PM

… you’re a nut job,” …
besser tot als rot on October 8, 2012 at 11:32 PM

But, you are a nutball.

I don’t give a flamin’ fat rat’s rear who anybody votes for. As long as they don’t go nuts about it, or attack the viable republican candidates.

You were bein’ a nutball, again. And I am almost always up for a game of whack-a-troll.

Read the bold and notice the fallacy.

He IS posting on HA and he KNOWS he’s not changing anyone’s mind.

Do you foolishly assume that this is how he communicates with fence-sitters in the real world.

Wake up amigo….we’re posting on a conservative blog…among friends who should know better.

oh…and have some testes installed….you whine too much.
