So Much for the Obama Early Voting Advantage: Gallup Poll Finds Romney Up 52% – 46% Among Early Voters
Hmm, Gallup reports that, “In U.S., 15% of Registered Voters Have Already Cast Ballots”. That’s not the headline … the following is, Romney leads Obama by 7% in early voting!!!
Team Obama, his minions and the in the tank Obama MSM have been spinning for weeks that Barack Obama has the advantage in early voting and that they are way out ahead of Mitt Romney. NOT SO FAST. Just like everything else they spew about Obama, its a myth. According to Gallup, Romney is leading Obama in early voting 52% to 46%. This is an amazing 22 point drop by Obama from 2008.
Romney Leads Among Early Voters, Similar to His Likely Voter Lead
Thus far, early voters do not seem to be swaying the election toward either candidate.
Romney currently leads Obama 52% to 45% among voters who say they have already cast their ballots. However, that is comparable to Romney’s 51% to 46% lead among all likely voters in Gallup’s Oct. 22-28 tracking polling. At the same time, the race is tied at 49% among those who have not yet voted but still intend to vote early, suggesting these voters could cause the race to tighten. However, Romney leads 51% to 45% among the much larger group of voters who plan to vote on Election Day, Nov. 6.
The Lonely Conservative has an very interesting factoid, the GOP is way out ahead of absentee ballots over Democrats in Pennsylvanian.
In 2008 the GOP edged the Democrats by just 2% in absentee returns. As of today the GOP’s lead is 18.8% — a 16.9% bump in a state Obama won by 10% in 2008. Republicans have turned in 55.2% of the absentee ballots to date while the Democrats have returned just 36.4%.
The Romney Victory team has been on the ground in Pennsylvania for months with over 60 staff and dozens of offices. We have made over 5 million volunteer voter contacts including over 1 million volunteer door knocks across Pennsylvania.
Let’s be realistic, who really is motivated to vote for another Obama four years? Anyone can plainly see that there is no enthusiasm for Obama in 2012. There is no hysteria for Obama like there was in 2008. Frankly, why should there be. Just as many wanted to vote into office the first black president, many are making sure they vote out a president who has been an epic failure.
