Quinnipiac: Obama 46, Romney 43
Politico ^ | 7-11-12 | Alexander Burns

Posted on 07/11/2012 6:16:04 AM PDT by raulgomez05

Driven by a yawning marriage gap, and a 2-1 lead among single women, President Barack Obama gets 46 percent of American voters to 43 percent for Gov. Mitt Romney, largely on the support of singles, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today.

Married voters back Romney 51 – 38 percent, while unmarried voters back President Obama 54 – 34 percent, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds. Among married voters, Romney leads 54 – 35 percent among men and 49 – 42 percent among women. Among single voters, Obama leads 47 – 38 percent among men and 60 – 31 percent among women.

It won't be close. Myth RomneyCARE is the CHOSEN Loser
because he weakness and hyperliberalism. Want proof?

Did everyone hear Mr. Romney's vibrant speech on this
last night and this morning?

This is the MOST IMPORTANT vote this month, and
Mr. Romney was all over it -- pitching for conservatism,
and against statism, and against socialized medicine.

Mr. Romney's speech will go down into eternity on the
OBAMACARE vote in the US House this afternoon.
Mr. Romney made the case against ObamaCARE for Americans.
Thank you, Mr. Romney for speaking up loudly and now. [/s]

The sample probably contained more Dems than GOPers.

I think all of these polls are incorrect. They(the polls)cannot be picking up an underlying surge against Mr. Obama.

Mr. Reagan was in a similar position in the polls against Mr. Carter in 1980 at this point in the cycle.

I think the president is going to get buried in a GOP landslide.

Garbage poll. They oversampled demos by at least 4 points in this mess.

Look at the internals.

The media races out to report on this trash but if you look at the internals obama is losing.

Its a barackathon 24/7 to kneepad this idiot and try to keep him above water until November 6, 2012.

Listen to Obamas speeches........then imagine being out of work for months, your home in foreclosure, you are on unemployment, food stamps and you have lost your healthcare.....are you going to blame Obama or vote for him because he is promising to take more money from guys like Romney, money that will keep your family going. It’s a no-brainer folks. Obama is destroying Romney on Romneys only platform, financial success. This is going south real fast. The people needed to listen to Newt, he knew what was going to happen in the campaign, tried to go there and he was crucified.

Also, where are all the incumbent senators and congressmen who are begging Mr Popularity to come and campaign with them? If anything it looks to me like they’re avoiding him like the plague. If that’s not a indicator of the real situation I don’t know what is.

Polling data can be manipulated in oh so many ways. From the nature, order, and wording of the questions... To what questions are even asked, to who is asked.

Heard on the radio yesterday that a Wapo/ABC poll has hussein and Mitt tied at 47% each. Then the guy took the poll apart. Seems that in the demographics for the poll the people that responded self-identified as democrat (33%) and republican (%24).

This is a wildly unrealistic and non-representative sample. As was noted on the radio, there has never been a national election where democrats came out "+9" Or 9% higher turnout than republicans. As was noted, even in 2008, with all the energy and hoopla around hope and change, they managed just +7. In the 2010 election, when there was more republican fire and far less enthusiasm from 'rats the turnout numbers were dead even, 35% each (remaining 30% independents).

Given the lack of support for hussein's insane policies today, the economy, the deficit, etc. does anyone realistically think the 'rats will pull even in turnout, let alone be able to pull off an unprecedented (and I mean really without precedent, not the way hussein mis-uses unprecedented) turnout relative to the republicans? (barring of course widespread and obvious voter fraud)

Of course not. What is likely is another even turnout, or maybe even a slight +1 to +3 percent advantage to the republicans. So the Wapo/ABC poll is incredibly biased - to the tune of about 10% to 12% off any reasonable numbers. Yet, with even that wildly uneven playing field, the best they can do is put their boy dead even with Mitt. If Mitt's campaign gets their act together and hammers hussein on all the areas he is oh so vulnerable in... start thinking landslide.

PS - same Wapo/ABC poll with the +9 bias put hussein's immigration policy and economey etc. as unpopular by double-digits.

The compass is spinning out of control with the younger generation being guilted (indoctrinated in school and college) into their thought patterns for something we had nothing to do with. WE DIDN’T DO IT! It was 150 years ago so get over it. As long as there are van joneses and sharptons and jacksons and uncle obie (Half-rican American POTUS) pushing their agenda for reparations etc., this will never stop.

Helping keep mankind warm for 65 years.

I give Quinnapiac SOME credit. At least they didn’t sample like this:

Democrats: 98%
Republicans: Negative 27%
Independents: 25%

Like these bogus polls usually do. It will be interesting to see how they played the numbers this time, because Quinnapiac is unique (well, no, PPP is the same) in their mendacity.

Nothing really new here. Unmarried people, especially women, favor the liberal candidate at a greater margin than married people. You can attribute this to moral relativism, which is more prevalent among the unchurched, who are more likely to be single than married, or to economic reasons, as single people are more likely to have lesser or nonexistent family ties than married people and thus are likely to see government (Federal, state or local) as a surrogate family. This is particularly true for single mothers with lower incomes.

There is no immediate or long-term solution to this problem for moderate to conservative candidates. Focusing on the economic problems exacerbated by the Obama administration will reduce the pro-Obama leanings of this group, some of whom may be upper income and will not be thrilled with higher taxes and lessened quality of health care under Obamacare.

The country is basically polarized. Romney will spend little money in the Northeast (except maybe Pennsylvania) or the West Coast. People in the Southern states, except Florida, North Carolina, and Virginia, or the Plains States (except Iowa and Minnesota) will see few Obama ads. Since the 1980s, neither party has conducted a true 50 state campaign, political rhetoric notwithstanding.

It IS a close election - and that is both BAD and INCREDIBLE.

On the OTHER hand, the jerk who runs the Quinnipiac College Poll is a left-wing liberal Democrat with a political agenda all his own and he engineers his biased polls to advfgance that agenda.

Having no husbands, single women are voting to have the government take care of them. They are too “special” to find the “ideal man” they think they deserve, and they will make everyone else in the country pay for this mistake.

Quinnipiac = Clinton pollster. They tend to oversample Democrats and usually overstate the Democrat advantage by 2-3 percent. They may be “independant” but result after result always weights in favor of the Democrats against the reality of the final count.

From July 1 - 8, Quinnipiac University surveyed 2,722 registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 1.9 percentage points.

This is a registered voter poll, which typically overstates Democratic voter %'s by several points, at minimum.

Probably not nearly as close as politico and all the liberal Spin Doctors are trying to dirty the water with these over-sampled dem polls and polling “people who watch network TV”.

Sorry, it ain’t gonna work. Dem’s usual blocks are disallusioned and many will “be too busy” to vote.

The best poll at this point is donations. Nobama is not doing so well. But who knows, soros could come to the rescue at the last minute with another of his millions of $23 cash debit card scam lke in 08 (unlikely as quiet as he’s been, he may be reading the writing on the wall and is working on an escape plan thinking Conservatives will come after him big time after the election).

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
I received a robo-call last night. It was Rasmussen Polling. My family’s heritage comes through mejico, but I reject being called mexican-american.

However, for this poll, I self-identified as “hispanic” in order to give aid and comfort to my fellow patriots of mexican heritage, and self-identified, as we are now, Republican.

The poll seemed centered around the notion of much money one earns and to what ‘class’ they belong.

I punched ‘middle-class’ for the question to what class does a family earning $250K belong.

In your face, Democrats. Wife and I raised 2 strong, Freedom-loving sons. Like their old man, they can smell a Marxist from a mile away.
