Numbers not good for Obama Democrats

I think the following poll numbers make it crystal clear that all we need to do is identify what a voter’s hot button issues are and show him or her the relevant facts.

GENERAL

Rasmussen national polls of Likely Voters

July 1, 2012: Is the country better off today than it was four years ago?

   Yes 30% vs. No 60% vs. Not sure 10%

July 6, 2012: How would you rate Obama’s handling of economic issues?

Good 31% vs. Poor 48% vs. Not sure 21%

Check out the “squeamish about racism” factor in the two questions above. The Yes/Good group is virtually identical. But when the question mentions Obama personally, 11% of the No voters jump into the Not Sure category.

June 11, 2012: The next president will likely be …

Democrat 25% vs. Republican 60% vs. Not sure 15%

When Obama first took office, 44% thought a Republican would replace him.

UNION

Gallup poll of Registered Voters

June 11, 2012: If the election was today, who would you vote for:

Union members: Obama 57% vs. Romney 35%

2008 Election

   Union members: Obama 59% vs. McCain 39%

Currently, only about 12% of employed voters are union members. In 2008, 21% of voters reported coming from union households.

BLACKS

Public Policy Polling surveys of Blacks in North Carolina

If the election were today, who would you vote for?

May 2012: Obama 87% vs. Romney 11% vs. 2% Undecided

June 2012: Obama 76% vs. Romney 20% vs. 4% Undecided

Election 2008: About 13% of voters were Black. 95% of them voted for Obama.

JEWS

Siena College polls of New York Jews

May 2012: Obama Support 62% vs. Oppose 32%

June 2012: Obama Support 51% vs. Oppose 43%

June 2012: America is on the right track 31% vs. headed in the wrong direction 62%

OBAMA’S IDEOLOGICAL BASE

Rasmussen poll of Adult Americans

July 5, 2012: Are you proud of America?

No 7% vs. Yes 84% vs. Meh 9%

Obama’s “Betting on America” tour

Obama spent July 5 and 6 tooling around Ohio in his Canadian-made bus telling everyone how Very Committed He Is to Economic Growth and Job Creation for Americans.

Click on graphic to embiggen.

Ohio is an important swing state. Obama won it in 2008 by 4%. A recent Quinnipiac poll claimed he is ahead of Romney 47% to 38% among Registered Voters in Ohio. But I compared the poll samples with Gallup’s Party Affiliation poll and found a significant skew.

                        Quin    Gallup

Democrat        34%     30%

Republican     26%     30%

Independent    34%    39%

Meh                     6%        1%

I also found a somewhat older, but specific-to-Ohio poll at Gallup that, with leaners, showed Ohio at:

Democrat 42.5% vs. Republican 41.2% vs. 16.3% Neither.

I looks to me like Quinnipiac gave Democrats a totally unrealistic 8 point advantage! No WAY is Obama leading Romney by nine points. Sheesh.

Look what happens when Quinnipiac’s results are adjusted to line up with Gallup’s numbers.

Q. Vote for Obama   47% – 4% = 43%

Gallup: Ohio Democrat                 42.5%

Q. Vote for Romney   38% + 4% = 42%

Gallup:  Ohio Republican               41.2%

Q. Other, Undecided, Wouldn’t Vote   15%

Gallup Ohio Neither Party Preference 16.3%

Isn’t it interesting how closely the adjusted numbers match Gallup’s 2011 numbers?

Now check out what Rasmussen found when they polled Likely Voters in Ohio recently.

                 April    May

Obama   46%     44%

Romney  42%    46%

Neither    12%    10%

People know Obama. I can’t help thinking that anyone who is likely to vote for him is already committed to him and that the more we get to see of Romney, the more we’ll see of the same kind of shift away from Obama/Neither and toward Romney.
