Foster McCollum White Baydoun (FMW)B, a national public opinion polling and voter analytics consulting firm based in Michigan and representing the combined resources of Foster McCollum White & Associates (Troy Michigan) and Baydoun Consulting (Dearborn Michigan) conducted a telephone-automated polling random survey of Michigan registered and most likely November 2012 General election voters for Fox 2 News Detroit to determine their voting and issue preferences for the presidential election.
An initial qualifying statement was read to respondents asking them to participate only if they were very likely to vote in the November General Election.
Thirty five thousand (35,000) calls were placed, and 1,122 respondents fully participated in the survey. The margin of error for this total polling sample is 2.93% with a confidence level of 95%.
The 2012 United States Presidential election will be held on November 6, 2012. Who are you most likely to vote for in the election?
President Barack Obama 46.92% Republican Nominee Mitt Romney 46.56% another candidate 2.30% Undecided 4.23%

Any D/R/I sampling data from this poll?
Tied, in Michigan? I’ll take that.
Not listed which makes me think it was skewed dem.
Haha good ole 47% for obama. That number is like a magnet to him.
And now the Detroit Free Press has turned on the unionistas.

Guess saving Detroit isn’t helping the 1
In a poll of “Hardcore Pawn” customers.....
It may take some digging through their previous polls to find out what breakdown they have been using for Michigan.
35k phone calls ... no party ID asked.
Like gallup does
Yes! Michigan is “pink.” Union members aren’t as lock step as the leaders believe them to be.
35000 calls were made to get 1122 participants? That seems like a lot of calls for such a low participation rate.
Tied in MI, Romney ahead in NH, and tied in OH? I don’t think so. I bet Romney has a comfortable lead in the Buckeye state.
Not really hard to believe... a huge chunk of the calls will be voicemail/answering machines. And then once they get a hold of a live human, it may be a kid or someone who doesn’t speak English. After that, there’s only about a 10% or less participation rate.
Most people hear “Hi, I am Fred from Gallup...”
The pollster then hears: < Click, Dial Tone >
Notice how RCP did NOT include this one in their averages? Their pro-Obama bias in choosing which polls to include is becoming obvious.
That's about a three (3) percent response rate! Even the 47% slackers can't be bothered to respond to polls!
