‘Purple Poll’ Showing Romney Leading Obama, Ryan Improving Ticket

romney-2012-splash-vpcontest2

The “Purple Poll” focuses exclusively on likely voters in the swing states, which explains why folks in New York haven’t heard from their pollsters, but also appears to be a sound approach to getting an interesting snapshot of the state of the elections at this moment.

So, did the Ryan appointment give Mitt Romeny the predicted 3+ points edge? You bet your hanging chad it did (as of August 15):

Ohio: Obama 44, Romney 46—Romney +2 Florida: Obama 47, Romney 48—Romney +1 Colorado: Obama 49, Romney 46—Obama +3 Virginia: Obama 45, Romney 48—Romney +3

For comparison, today’s Gallup poll shows Romney with 47 percent of the vote vs. Obama with 45.

But, please, don’t jump into any conclusions here – nothing means anything in American presidential campaigns until after Labor Day.

Here’s the proof of Ryan’s current glow (fueled mostly by the fact that fewer voters have heard about him than about the other three):

Obama Favorability: Favorable-47, Unfavorable-49, Not sure: 4 Romney Favorability: Favorable-45, Unfavorable-48, Not sure: 7 Biden Favorability: Favorable-41, Unfavorable-48, Not sure: 11 Ryan Favorability: Favorable-45, Unfavorable-39, Not sure: 16

And here are some sobering figures for the Obama campaign:

Direction of the Economy: Getting better-29, Getting worse-44, Staying about the same-25, Don’t know-2

Best plan for the economy: Obama-Biden-43, Romney-Ryan-46, Not sure-2

And this note should be of interest to the Romeny side:

Will protect Medicare: Obama-Biden-48, Romney-Ryan-40, Not sure-12

  1. Charlie Hall says:

    Most polls still show Obama with significant leads in all the swing states. Purple Strategies and Rasmusses, both Republican oriented, are the exceptions.

  2. Joseph Ruiz says:

    If this country re-elects the Communist nimrod, this nation deserves to become a re-incarnation of the Soviet Union. U.S.S.A.S., the Union of Soviet Socialist American States.

  3. a bump is to expected when a candidate names his running mate. The tough part will be hanging on to that lead. Jews- get a clue: a vote for Republicans is a vote FOR Western Civilization and the freedoms that the Western cannon has brought us. It's not written in stone that we'll always have what we have.

  4. Charlie Hall says:

    A vote for the Republicans this year is a vote for the two candidates with the least foreign policy experience of any candidates since the 1940s. We cannon risk that. It is a vote to return to the economic policies that created the crash of 2008, from which we are still recovering. We cannot risk THAT. It is a vote to decimate the support of the federal government for medical research, for scientific research, for education, for infrastructure — all the things this country needs to remain a leader in the world. It is astonishing that this is even a matter for debate! And it is a vote to allow Americans to die from lack of access to health care. That should be intolerable in any free and wealthy society, and in fact every other free democracy has rejected that, in particular Israel.

  5. I'm hoping Romney is the next President . Like him or not , He has a great track record ..
