Mitt Romney Soars With Youth Voters

More bad news for Team O…
Obama sinks to new low with youth voters.
The Examiner reported:

For the first time since he began running for president, Republican Mitt Romney has the support of over 40 percent of America’s youth vote, a troubling sign for President Obama who built his 2008 victory with the overwhelming support of younger, idealistic voters.

Pollster John Zogby of JZ Analytics told Secrets Tuesday that Romney received 41 percent in his weekend poll of 1,117 likely voters, for the first time crossing the 40 percent mark. What’s more, he said that Romney is the only Republican of those who competed in the primaries to score so high among 18-29 year olds.

“This is the first time I am seeing Romney’s numbers this high among 18-29 year olds,” said Zogby. “This could be trouble for Obama who needs every young voter he can get.”

Zogby helped Secrets dig deeper into his weekend poll, which we reported on earlier. The poll had Romney and Obama tied at 46 percent.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters now have a favorable opinion of Ryan, while 32% view him unfavorably.

    Of those who will change their vote, 57% say they are more likely to vote for Romney, 42% say they are less likely to vote for Romney. The state of Florida is one of the most important swing-states in the country. Florida’s 29 electoral votes are critical to Romney.

    Obama In November 2009: Right, One-Third Of ObamaCare Funding Comes From Cuts To Medicare

  • Patty

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 47% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns the vote from 43%. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and seven percent (7%) are undecided. Romney’s lead is a bit larger when leaners are included.

  • Bill Mitchell

    Hey aren’t we seriously overdue for some wildly oversampled Dem leaning polls showing Obama in a landslide? I think we are.

  • Bill Mitchell


    Rasmussen is a “discredited polling organization”? According to who, far left hack Nate Silver? Lol, Rasmussen was VERY accurate in 2010 thank you very much.

    Also that Fox Poll you love to quote? That had 9% more Democrats in it than Republicans. Bad poll. As a matter of fact, every poll showing Obama leading oversamples Democrats.

    You really need to stop talking in public before you learn what you are talking about.

    The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.


  • Patty

    The real poll will be in November. And I predict that Romney and Ryan will win in a landslide.

  • Sasja

    You young people. If you want a future with real opportunities for success, however you define it, you have to vote for Romney. Bammy only offers the strong arm of government controls and no future. Liberty or servitude. Choose wisely.

  • Redwine

    I’m not into the polls. R&R are way ahead in support. It’s much bigger than the polls reflect. Obamunist tactics are backfiring, and the R&R team is calling them out on it. The Obamunists are pouring on the hate, charging up the level of violence (see the latest threats coming from the NBPP). That’s all they have. R&R have the message and the plan. The Obamunists will up the nasty rhetoric and tactics and incite violence to try to retain power. We will have hard times ahead. But we have the team who will get the job done. Americans are waking up.

  • Sasja

    Romney in a landslide. Can’t trust any poll. Reagan’s election taught us that lesson.

  • Winston Wolfe

    Anyone who believes Obama is ahead by nine points is insane.

    He didn’t even win in 2008 by nine points, and you think he’s better off now?

    Up your meds, child. It’s going to neck-and neck until the end.

  • Patty

    Liberal hate speech is hate speech, that is, widely provocative speech to denigrate a legally protected class or group of citizens defined by legislation, employed by liberals. Liberals claim to support tolerance, but their use of liberal hate speech tends to put the lie to this claim.

    #20 is a prime example of how Satan and the progs are one and the same. He/she is having fun now, being best buds with the Devil. It’s a shame the good times will end when your time to leave this earth is over and you find out just what Hell really is. Old Scratch will have fun with the likes of you, alright.

    This makes my case:

    Spike Lee: Obama Will Do Whatever He Wants In Second Term

    And that is another reason why R/R will when in a landslide. Keep it coming liberals, the more you speak the more stupid you sound.

    Today’s youth are one issue voters.

    They want jobs, jobs, jobs.

    They’ve seen Oblamers failure at creating jobs, so will give Mitt’s plan a try.

  • Typical White Person

    You know, this selection of our little cutie face Paul Ryan, has pissed off the libs to where they can hardly stand it. It’s clear, in the manner in which they come across. But, I’m REALLY loving the fact that the PIMP himself, is undoubtedly sseeeettthhhhing. Being the snidely brat that he is, he will really be showing his ugly (make that uglier) face before we know it, as we go along just being ourselves…smiling, clean cut, reputable, God, family and country loving people, while we watch the left do a performance of the wicked witch in Oz. Again, tantamount to them putting the noose around their own necks.

    If anyone thinks they can construe this remark about Obama racist, I gleefully respond, the white side is just as bad!
    But I LOVE Alan West!

  • owl

    Somebody pay attention…………………………..Biden.

    It is their campaign to replace him with Bill/Hillary on the ticket. Do NOT buy it or help them.

    They know Ryan and the fight being taken to them on Medicare will work.

    We need to start fighting against their change in ticket. That ‘unchained’ was written for him.

  • kathteach

    I teach these kind of young folks and trust me….they were never enamored of Obama in their teen years because they saw their moms and dads lose their homes to foreclosure, get laid off, their relatives and neighbors had to go through the same agony, they can’t even get jobs flipping burgers because there are 34 and 46 year olds who have those jobs sewed up (and they can’t get jobs doing hard yard work because illegal immigrants have those jobs sewed up)……

    They have every reason to come to college already suspecting that all that Obama love in 2998 falls flat as they have lived through times that I would suggest were harder than the Great Depression – especially in small town America.

    These kids are ready to pull the lever for anything but Obama…..they have been reared up to do just that. Thank God.

  • kathteach

    Sorry I mean all that misguided love for Obama in 2008.

    College freshmen and sophomores couldn’t vote back then.

    It’s a whole new generation – trust me.

    And they have many great reasons to be unhappy with the American government…… (never in our nation’s history have we grown up kids who have grown up with America being engaged in two wars – since as early as they remember).

  • crackermike

    Re#28 Interesting; this mornings Gallup poll which uses registered voters has Romney going from down 1 or 2 to up 2. This in an oversampled, registered voter poll and they STILL said Romney received no Ryan bounce. Gallup is trying to spin it’s own results to favor the guy that just lost his long time lead in their own poll. The kids changing their vote is just natural. They have been brough up to worship at Obama’s feet by parents and faculty. The kids just wanna do anything different than did the “old” people. Yep, Democrats and Progressives are now perceived as old fashioned by youth vote. Obama is going to get landslided in metaphysical proportions Rmoney. By the way, Rmoney, cute title. I’ll bet you really got off on General Betrayus too.

  • Mitt Romney is going to win and I lay the argument out very succinctly here…

    Get used to President Mitt Romney

    There is no way for Barack Obama to regain a 2nd term. The numbers are completely stacked against him. For daily numbers analysis and common sense logic why Romney and Ryan will win, visit my blog.

  • Gary

    Yay, a new troll

    Welcome Rmoney, assuming you’re not just one of our old trolls who had to change usernames.

    Yes, the majority of polls show Obama ahead, and sensible people know why that is. It has been explained ad nauseum and I don’t feel like retyping it for your benefit.

    Instead, I’ll pose a simple question to you. What did the polls show about the Scott Walker recall election, even an our after the voting booths all closed?

    So, that shows you what these polls are good for. They’re designed to shape the standings, not report them. We see it every election cycle. Nancy Pelosi was confident that the Dems would keep the HR in 2010. She, like you, listened to the poll results.

    We’re not fooled by poll after poll that oversamples Democrats and polls “registered voters”, i.e. any adult regardless of the adult’s intention of voting. And we don’t fret when you try to discredit Rasmussen for not playing along with the rest of the “pollsters” (who are in reality political activists, mostly with known political affiliations).

    We just smile and look at our calendars, and take comfort in the knowledge that November is coming, and all of you who would see this country mired in socialism are genuinely scared.
    So scared that you come to a conservative blog to try to muddy the waters.

  • Nomorelies

    RMoney #17: you are a classic vile liberal. I cannot imagine writing words such as “running your child through a wood chipper” or “self-immolating.” You are beyond vile and disgusting. Why not take your comments to the toilet and flush them away with your thoughts. You are the reason REAL Americans have had it from left wing nutheads. You are uncivilized. Like Adam Smith (the chick fil-a) taunter, you run at the mouth without consideration that every word you spout is being read and will someday come back to haunt you. Your boss, your family, someone in an important position will google it and find you. It will be YOUR scarlet letter. Obama will be tossed out of office on his nappy head. Count on it buster.

    Romney’s Politically Brilliant Medicare Move

    [Democrats launch knee-jerk Medicare attacks at Republicans as a matter of course and with Ryan on the ticket, you can expect to see more of it than usual as they try to mislead seniors about his plan. What this does is turn the whole issue around. Not only is Romney not going to be on the defensive, he’s going to be the guy who takes the 716 billion dollars out of Obamacare and puts it into Medicare. That makes it impossible for Obama to hold the high ground on the issue. He can’t claim to be the guy protecting Medicare from those SCARY Republicans when he’s the one who wants to pillage 716 billion dollars out of a wildly popular program to put into his atrocious health care bill that polls about as well as whooping cough. Now, every time Obama brings the subject up, Romney has a powerful, easy-to-understand talking point that will give him the upper hand on the issue. “Destroy Medicare? We’re the ones who’re trying to save it. In fact, we’re going to take the 716 billion dollars you took out of Medicare and put it back into the program.”

    Game. Set. Match. Romney wins the debate on the issue.]

    based on the facts of the matter, i concur.. 😉


  • kathteach

    Rmoney – You are a sad sack in the wrong place at the wrong time. How on earth do you think you are persuading anyone here?

    Arguments need to be persuasive and you write like you never made it through the basic college composition writing classes.

    You so alienate folks with your words…..tell your boss – Axelrod – to assign you to other sites where you will be more happily received (I suggest Yahoo News or HuffPo)

    Former Obama Co-Chair from 2008 Joins Romney Campaign

    [In 2008, he was one of the biggest champions for Barack Obama,
    even serving as an Obama campaign co-chairman and seconding
    Obama’s nomination at the Democratic National Convention.

    But that was then and this is now.

    Today, Artur Davis, a former four-term Democratic congressman from
    Alabama is now supporting Republican Mitt Romney for president, and
    is joining him on the campaign trail in Arlington, Va.

    Just last month in Falls Church, Va., Davis gave a rousing address to
    the Northern Virginia Tea Party, rallying the crowd to defeat his former
    ally Obama.]

    okay, where’s Questionman when an answer to RACISM is needed?? 😆

    When my own son says in his prayer at the dinner table last night, “God, get Obama out of here! Help us save America!” I knew him and his friends/brother have been talking. They support Romney and especially Ryan. Ryan is there kind of dude, hunter,fisherman,family man, church.

    All I have to do is save your gravatar image, open a new gravatar account with an email address I don’t use, register your image with my bogus email account, and then post comments here under the bogus email address, and voila.

    So Willard Mitt Romney tells us that he is a success, its easy when you start with Dad’s money and dad’s contacts (kinda like Trump) and did not do it on your own, but ok, success.

    Willard Mitt Romney tells us that Bain was his first success, a company without a product (unlike Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison among others who created jobs by the success of their products). What’s even funnier Bain owns “Clear Channel” who has under contract both “Rush Limbaugh” and “Glen Beck”, how do you think they will do after the election. Bain preyed on weak companies and even if these companies went into bankruptcy Bain made money (Willard still gets a check from Bain) not to mention the jobs that were outsourced or their dealings with RED CHINA, but ok maybe Willard did not know that Bain was in to that, sure, why not, right?

    Willard Mitt Romney then tells us that his second success is 2002 Winter Olympics. All 2002 Winter Olympics financials have been destroyed, but ok lets take his word, success.

    This is Willard Mitt Romney calling card that what our country needs now is someone like him a supposed successful business man.

    So given all of Willard Mitt Romney, supposed success, don’t you expect to see an extraordinary success in his position as governor of Massachusetts, his one and only public sector job? If you look at the majority of his statements as to why he should be governor of Massachusetts, they almost mirror his current ones, mainly “I am a successful business man”. But when we look at Massachusetts, it was an ordinary mediocrity, to the point that he could only survive one term, that how good this guy was, but ok according to him he was a success.

    Now he wants the top public sector job, hmmm, no not on my watch!
