Republican poll analysis: Romney winning with middle-class families

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">The past several weeks have been filled with news stories, editorials and columns heaping criticism on the tactics and strategy of the Romney campaign. Many of these opinion pieces even suggested that Romney’s only hope for winning is to make substantial changes to his campaign. Much of this analysis is based on the premise that Romney is out of touch and has not been making an affirmative case to middle-class voters. His comments at a private fundraiser in May were pointed to as an illustration that he could never identify with and win the support of many middle-class voters. We took a special look at middle-class voters, and middle-class families in particular, in this latest POLITICO-George Washington University Battleground Poll and found that not to be the case. In fact, on every measure it is Romney who is winning the battle for the support of middle-class families.

Overall, Obama leads Romney by just 3 points on the ballot (50 percent to 47 percent) – which before we rounded up, is actually a 2.6 point lead and only up a half-a-percentage point from the 2.1 point lead for Obama in our last Battleground poll in early August. In our latest POLITICO-George Washington University Battleground Poll with middle-class families, which comprise about 54 percent of the total American electorate and usually split in their vote behavior between Republicans and Democrats, Romney holds a 14-point advantage (55 percent to 41 percent). Middle-class families are more inclined to believe the country is on the wrong track (34 percent right direction, 62 percent wrong track), are more likely to hold an unfavorable view of Obama (48 percent favorable, 51 percent unfavorable), and hold a more favorable view of Romney (51 percent favorable, 44 percent unfavorable) and Paul Ryan (46 percent favorable, 35 percent unfavorable) than the overall electorate. These middle-class families also hold a majority disapproval rating on the job Obama is doing as president (45 percent approve, 54 percent disapprove), and turn even more negative toward Obama on specific areas; the economy 56 percent disapprove; spending 61 percent disapprove; taxes, 53 percent disapprove; Medicare 48 percent disapprove; and even foreign policy 50 percent disapprove.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Even with the past few weeks containing some of the toughest days of earned media for the Romney campaign, and perhaps as a surprise to Washington insiders, Romney continues to win Republicans (Romney by a net +87 percent) by the same margin Obama is winning with Democrats (Obama by a net +88 percent), and is still winning with independents (+2 percent). Romney has majority support with voters over the age of 45 (+7 percent), with men (+6 percent), with white women (+9 percent), and with married voters (+14 percent). In addition, Romney has solidified his base. Support among conservative voters exceeds 70 percent (73 percent), his support among very conservative voters exceeds 80 percent (83 percent), and his support among Republicans exceeds 90 percent (91 percent). Romney is also receiving a higher level of support among Hispanics (40 percent), which is driven by higher support from Hispanic men.
</div></div>LOL, doesn't sound nearly as bad as the squawkers from the left would like voters to believe.

Or as all the bedwetters on the right apparently believe themselves.

Why, if this is all accurate, is there such wailing and gnashing of the teeth by the conservatives and the GOP, as clearly, Ritt Momney is marching to an easy victory on such analysis?

Haven't you been informed ... this data does not support the omnipotence of dear leader, and for that reason the cabal has declared it invalid.

Answer the question, which is WHY DO MANY OF THE RIGHT AND MANY IN THE GOP MAINLY BUY IT, then?

They love Obama? They refuse to see when he's actually in trouble, using happy talk and bs to cover up his looming electoral defeat? As if they were Democrats?

LOL, if comes from the same site gaylio was quoting. I linked to entire article and the wicked witch of md thinks I am the one cherry picking. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif It cracked me up to see her responding to me when she blatantly said she would not do so.

Also, this article is proof your sky-is-falling view of the Reps is absolutely off course. Did you even bother to read the article. Hardly any gnashing of teeth at all.

Hard to say, but it probably started with Ann Coulter's speech when she said if they don't nominate Chris Christie and Romney gets the nomination, they will lose.

Their House members (and many of their professional consultants) started soiling themselves when Ryan was picked.

Also, this article is proof your sky-is-falling view of the Reps is absolutely off course. Did you even bother to read the article. Hardly any gnashing of teeth at all.

At least the last sentence is true. No, they've expressed their panic mode elsewhere, not in the Politico article, a site previously known as Republico, for their rw bias toward the GOP.

Frankly, it may very well be true that Ritt Momney is ahead nationally. I had no idea that he had 40% leads in some red states of the south, Texas, etc. Running up the score and gaining huge popular vote advantages in red states get Ritt the identical electoral votes from those states as if he won by 1 vote, however. Ritt still loses the electoral college vote handily as of now, despite a possibly true 'national lead.'

None of what we have seen could be seen as gnashing of teeth. LOL, the article proves you are all washed up. Just read it.
