Oh my: Gallup shows Romney leading by five — in swing states

posted at 5:22 pm on October 15, 2012 by Allahpundit

Like Chuck Todd said this morning, “Structural shift.”

A safe prediction for tomorrow night: You’re going to hear a lot about the “47 percent” and a lot lot lot about the “war on women.”

As the presidential campaign heads into its final weeks, the survey of voters in 12 crucial swing states finds female voters much more engaged in the election and increasingly concerned about the deficit and debt issues that favor Romney. The Republican nominee now ties the president among women who are likely voters, 48%-48%, while he leads by 12 points among men…

“In every poll, we’ve seen a major surge among women in favorability for Romney” since his strong performance in the first debate, veteran Democratic pollster Celinda Lake says. “Women went into the debate actively disliking Romney, and they came out thinking he might understand their lives and might be able to get something done for them.”…

Now, the USA TODAY/Gallup Poll shows Romney leading Obama 51%-46% among likely voters in the swing states. Men who are likely voters back him 54%-42%. The states are Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin…

When women were asked to identify the most important issue for women, though, the answers were strikingly different. The top concern by far was abortion, an issue that didn’t even register among men. Nearly four in 10 women cited it, and those who did supported Obama by more than 3-1. Fifteen percent cited equal rights, pay or opportunity.

There’s an enthusiasm gap among women voters too, with 46 percent saying they’re “extremely enthusiastic” to vote for Mitt versus 38 percent who say so about O. (Married women, who trend Republican, are also more enthusiastic than singles.) You’ll be pleased to know that Team Hopenchange has already wet itself over these results and is circulating a memo written by their pollster dumping on Gallup’s likely voter screen. I’m intrigued that they’re so eager to bat this down with the next debate 28 hours away. Even if this is an outlier, they’ll benefit if the next poll is taken after the debate and shows the race tighter, which would lend itself to an “Obama comeback” narrative. They must be awfully nervous about perceptions taking hold in the electorate that O’s a loser beyond even the power of the next debate to change. And if you read Sean Trende’s piece last week, you know why: Constructing a sense of inevitability has always been their best defense against the forces of political “gravity.” Once that sense is shattered and Romney becomes plausible, they start to melt.

The danger for Obama now, I think, is that he’s lost control of his own destiny. He’ll light into Romney tomorrow night but I don’t know how much harm it’ll do, especially since Mitt will be well prepared for the “47 percent” attack. Romney’s task was, and is, to show he’s a plausible president, and that depends much more on his own answers (and demeanor) than it does on Obama’s. If “President Romney” seems viable, gravity can do the rest.

Update: A few swing-state odds and ends for you as gravy. A Romney aide told Byron York that their internal polls show Ohio dead even; ARG sees a dead heat in Iowa too. Meanwhile, PPP found Romney up two points in North Carolina — based on a D+10 sample. As Tony Lee says, lights out.

jp on October 15, 2012 at 7:55 PM

Oh, and the new theme, for Mitt…I want women back to work, where they can earn money, pay for school, pay for their rent, be in a position to pay for their own birth control if their insurance chooses not to cover it, be independent, and the way to do that is give them jobs, that is what we need to focus on the next several years, is to turn this economy around from the direction Obama has taken us…

right2bright on October 15, 2012 at 5:47 PM

Fixed it a bit for you. Romney needs to send home that Republicans are not “against” birth control, they are against somebody being forced to pay for it. That lie has gone unanswered for a long time particularly for the low-info voters.

IT doesn’t even have to be a religious argument — just a constitutional one. How would libs feel about an unelected Republican HHS secretary deciding what is/is not allowed in their health-plan? The point is, nobody in the government should be making this choice, PERIOD. Be careful what you wish for.

Violina23 on October 15, 2012 at 7:55 PM

Charles Schwab endorses Mitt Romney for President.

OPhone Girl endorses more free stuff from Obama’s Stash.

cmsinaz on October 15, 2012 at 8:02 PM

i’m sure that there’s a lot of leftists just waiting for the 47 percent trigger to be pulled.

but i think the reason that barry didn’t bring it up the first time is so what? It is a fact.

so here’s mitt defending himself, like he did with the MA h/c. (you don’t hear much about that anymore).

the 47 percent shows what a rotten econ you’ve produced Mr. prezy. I mean mr. prezy, what should the number be…are you happy with 47…should it be more? should 60 percent not pay taxes? Really? that’s a healthy country???? etc.

and i’m not too worried about the sending of squads of marines/drones to kill people…either. Wait a minute, mr. prezy, what about the vid? why you over there killing people when the problem was the vid…you said the vid, man

the press of course will do a pearl clutch anytime mitt attacks their dearest one…but hey

barry, knows that another one or two exposures of who he is…looking down, no vision barry, just the hack he is…and mitt will go over the 300EV point

r keller on October 15, 2012 at 8:03 PM

Great news….

Obama has to be honked off and trashing the landscape at us ignorant peasants.. and predictable as a bad rash from wearing poison ivy undies… along comes..

Rasmussen’s swing state tracking poll shows it tied at 48%. Romney had been up 2 pts but tanked this weekend.

gumbyandpokey on October 15, 2012 at 7:41 PM

You’re the kind of guy who when he arrives at a party, people start jumping out of windows, or cutting their wrists.. anything to get away from the eternal doom and damnation you drag around like a shrunken head in a cannibal gift bag.

Aside from being wrong on every prediction you make..

Now, the USA TODAY/Gallup Poll shows Romney leading Obama 51%-46% among likely voters in the swing states. Men who are likely voters back him 54%-42%. The states are Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina,

If Romney winsthis thing, I want to here from the true conservatives how it is that RINO Romney was able to take the prize. Considering they swore till they were blue in the face that only a true blue conservative could possibly come close to even licking Obamas boot laces.

Romney has minimized the traditional social conservative boggie men like abortion, gay issues and other moral concerns….how does that square with A potential Mitt victory and future campaigns?

rickyricardo on October 15, 2012 at 7:21 PM

Assuming that he wins next month, he was able to “take the prize” because he’s the only candidate running in 2012 from either party to “show up to the job interview with his pants on,” as a commentator memorably put it earlier this year.

Mitt fought off the Z-grade vanity candidates (and Rick Perry, a potential A-list candidate who was woefully unequipped physically and mentally to deal with the rigors of a primary season, including debates) who also did him the favor of bringing out and delousing the Bain accusations, turning them into old news by convention time. Romney also had a formidable personal reputation for probity, making your average 50′s sitcom dad look like G.G. Allin, so there would be no Jack Ryan (or Herman Cain, if you prefer a more recent example) nonsense going on.

He’s also lucky in that he has an anti-American incumbent who hates the electorate and huffs his own ego. It’s hard not to think that -Carter- could and would have been a tougher opponent, he at least showed up to work. Clinton, of course, would have cleaned Mitt’s clock, even without a third-party challenger.

Not quite you brain-addled fool. It doesn’t change the fact that, after he knew an American ambassador had been murdered, Obama STILL went back to sleep, and STILL flew off to fundraise in Vegas the next day.
And it makes the Commander in Chief look weak and indecisive.

Ohio

You can hate it till your gnads grow hair.. it doesn’t change what they posted..

Now, the USA TODAY/Gallup Poll shows Romney leading Obama 51%-46% among likely voters in the swing states. Men who are likely voters back him 54%-42%

.

The states are Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin…

So you are a poll denier now?

NOW you deny what the MSM polls?

Now?

Ok then… so you are an emotion driven huckleberry, and your bitterness is showing.

No.. Mitt will win the Buckeye state,.. because I have looked high and low, and cannot find any enthusiasm for Obama.. he still has some voters, but they act like November 6th is a funeral they can’t get out of..

Stop denying what all objective evidence points to..

Romney has consistently polled ahead with independents.. mostly by double digits..

Romney has the momentum of two debate wins at his back..

Obama utterly crushed any thought the swing voters had, that he’s competent and fit do sit in that chair…

It’s going to become a rout after Wednesday… all Mitt has to do, is repeat his demeanor from the first debate.. Obama has to do the impossible, make everyone forget what a clown he was..

Mitt is going to win Ohio..

Denial isn’t anyway to go through life son.. it ranks down there with hubris.. and blind arrogance.. and in his case, false pride,.. because his reputation..

He didn’t make that.. somebody else built that for him..

Nope.

Security Before =/= Cover-up After

What it does do is make Obama sound like this:

“Let me be perfectly clear: As most Americans know, Hillary Rodham Clinton has balls. Big balls. Big, big balls. Oh, and a HUGE stick. My VP may have said that he knows that I have a big stick, but he’s wrong. I’m nothing more than a big, fat, pink, Code-Pink-vajayjay.

One last thing, I want you to listen to me. I’m going to say this again, I am not a crook nor a liar. I never told anybody to lie, not a single time — never. These allegations are false. I am just an incompetent vajayjay, who will never ever evah accept responsibility for anything, and since Bill humiliated Hill and she survived, I figure she can manage it again.

And, you wimmins out there, I know that you might be a little peeved about my throwing a woe-as-me-man under the bus, but just remember that I gave you free contraception so vote like your lady parts depend on it. If you could compartmentalise Bubba’s lies to a point where you were willing to exchange BJs for his remaining in office since he would keep abortion “safe, legal and rare,” just remember that I support 4th term abortions!

And, now, this muffin needs to go back to work for the American people. Thank you.”

but your point is taken.. I do take blood pressure meds.. but Gummy isn’t making me angry as much as amusing me..

I’ll try ignoring them for a while,.. but I’m a counter puncer by nature, and it’s a hard reflex to supress.

Just came across him in a book of musicians (and I use the word loosely in his case) and their untimely deaths. Never listened to any of his stuff, of course.

Loosely is right.

I will bet no other commenter here has ever heard of him.

and I deeply respect you for it,.. if that doesn’t make him leave skidmarks in his Adventure Time underoos.. then there is no justice.

“oh… Hew Hewitt, predicted an easy win in Ohio, because he’s talking to the people on the ground…

are you?

mark81150 on October 15, 2012 at 8:50 PM”

Hugh Hewitt was also saying on election day 2008 that McCain had a really good chance to win, was exceeding his benchmarks in turnout, etc. He’s a spin machine when an election comes.

The Romney campaign told Byron York that Ohio was “dead even” which means they are down 2-3 pts.

You also said Walker would lose.

You are such an idiot.

PA 20 — no chance
OH 18 — must win
MI 16 — no chance
WI 10 — no chance
CO 9 — possibility
IA 6 — possibility
NV 6 — possibility
NH 4 — possibility

Wasn’t it just yesterday that Colorado was off the table for Romney because some other poll had Obama +2?

The next person to fall on their sword will be Susan Rice. She will state that she and she alone decided to go on 5, FIVE TV shows and tell her whopper. Of course NO ONE told her to go on them. The buck stops with her. Ever notice how women are always taking the fall for Gumby? Maybe Candy Crowley will be the next to fall for him by attacking Romney openly during the town hall meeting debate.

You’ve never heard of campaigns using internal polling?

Don’t bother skippy, you’ve been wrong again and again and again, and had a lot of the commenters here point it out..

Did you ever acknowledge how dead wrong you were on Walker?.. all by accepting cherry picked democrat party spoon fed data that just made you swoon.. till you woke up to hear Walker was still their governor..

You cheery pick.. and convince no one of anything..

except to work even harder to make you cry on election day..

I’m telling you what I see and hear on the ground here..

and you swallow pollsters who missed Walker completely.. as they did the 94 blowout when we first retook the House.. 2010 was easy, even the delusional democrats saw that one coming..

except Pelosi.. she said she was keeping her jumbo sized toy gavel.. cause she just knew..

like you just know..

I live here, not you..

and Obama has limited appeal when most folks curse his name when it’s mentioned. South of me is coal country.. and they really hate the rat Bast*rd for using the EPA to shut down their jobs, deliberately falsely using regulations to “punish” the energy he HATES..

I hope Obama ends his days in poverty, as justice for all those he has put there, in his nasty rotten lunatic fringe hubris.. he’s destroying families..

all for the “green lobby”

So I hope he dies broke, and broken, just as he’s doing to Ohio and Penn. families..

so sell fanatic someplace else..

We like a president who doesn’t hate the peasants like Obama, and punishes the ones in jobs his Lordship doesn’t like..

Go be a Brit if you enjoy bowing so damn much.

I eagerly await your election night postings of Troll’s Greatest Hits.

Should be epic.

When women were asked to identify the most important issue for women, though, the answers were strikingly different. The top concern by far was abortion, an issue that didn’t even register among men.

They never ask you if you are pro or anti on an issue, only if it’s important to you. What if most of these women who listed abortion as important issue—opposed abortion?
