Rasmussen: Late deciding voters breaking for Bush

See details here (link)

Add this to the equation:

In early voting 51 percent say they went for Bush, 47 percent for Kerry.
Link Posted: 10/27/2004 3:53:36 AM EST
From www.electoral-vote.com:

The Los Angeles Times has a story today that explains why this election is so much more emotionally charged than previous ones. It is not about economics, but part of a cultural war. A new LA Times poll shows Bush doing well among lower and middle income whites, whereas Kerry leads among whites earning more than $100,000 a year despite his promise to roll back the Bush tax cuts for people making more than $200,000 a year. As president, Bush has enacted big tax cuts for the rich but the rich are voting for Kerry. What's up here? The same poll shows that 2/3 of the people who attend a house of worship at least once a week are voting for Bush, whereas 60% of those who attend religious services less than once a week are voting for Kerry, in part because these voters recoil at Bush's constant use of religious imagery. Lower income whites like Bush's proposal to ban gay marriage but only a quarter believe his policies have been good for the economy. In contrast, affluent whites who have benefitted the most from the Bush tax cuts believe Bush's policies have hurt the economy. In short, far more than in previous years, economic policy is taking a back seat to cultural issues. The real divide seems to be between deeply religious lower income, lower education, voters living in small towns and rural areas who have conservative values on abortion and gay marriage versus higher income, higher education, secular, urban voters who have progressive views on cultural issues. Maybe James Carville was wrong: It's NOT the economy, stupid. With this background and the fact that eight of the nine Supreme Court justices are past the traditional retirement age of 65 and four of them have been treated for cancer, it is likely that the choice of who the next president will nominate to the Court will weigh increasingly heavily on the minds of many voters as we approach election day. For more on this issue, see this story also, in the LA Times.
Are they trying to say that people who live in rural areas are ignorant back-woods hicks who really aren't bright and because they don't know better, they are voting for Bush?

Most of the Kerry supporters I know are unable to tie their own shoe laces, let alone carry on deep, meaningful discussion about international affairs or tax policy.

The "superior intellect" of Kerry is a myth. According to both candidates military records Bush IQ is 5 - 8 points higher than Kerry. Add to that the fact that Bush got degrees from Yale and Harvard while Kerry settled for Yale and Boston College.

So what happend to the Republicans polling poor over the weekend and the great numbers that Bush was supposed to have today?

If Zogby's 3 day average went from +3 two days ago, +3 yesterday, to +1 today, doesn't that mean Bush's numbers went down big time instead of going up like you had said?

Zogby = Democrat cheerleader........ ignore Zogby

The Rasmussen 3 day tracking Poll had a corrupt sample on Saturday which put Kerry up by 2 on Monday (first time in months). Yesterday the Ras poll had Bush and Kerry even at 48 because the rogue sample is being weighted by the normal data of Sun and Mon. Expect Bush by +2 today as the rogue Sat sample rolls off.


The good news is other Polls like Quinnipiac are showing an erosion of Kerrys base.

The Brand New Quinnipiac Poll in New Jersey has it Bush 46% - Kerry 46% - Nader 2%. Very, very, bad news for Kerry. So much for Charlie Cook and Chris Matthews statements saying Kerry has the momentum. For the record, Quinnipiac is one of the most trusted polling groups for NY, NJ, CT, and FL.

Be wary. The democrats will be cheating major big time this November. They will not pull any punches. They see cheating as a valuable way to win when the numbers are this close. It's the same reason they are pulling up all the Bush/Cheney signs all over the nation.

JAH

HR,

Is there any indication of a weakening in the GOP leadership to show the "bomb"?

At what point do we tell the truth and nuc the bastard?

This race SEEMS to be way too close for me. I'd really like my president to be a few more points ahead. The problem with a close race is that the ABA boyz are going to be filing a flurry of briefs, sueing the shit out of everyone while Monsieur Kerry screams that he "won" and announces his fucking cabinet!

Well, it was reported yesterday that on Saturday Rassmussen had included the question, "Do you support a return to the draft," in their poll, which turns their poll into a push poll. It skewed the raw data to Kerry. see below....By Monday the data had already moved back strongly to Bush. Look for that trend to continue and move Bush from the current 48-48 tie (3-day tracking poll) to at least +2 today. Rasmussen posts updates at noon Eastern so you can see if my prediction is on track.



Saturday raw data
Bush 43.7
Kerry 48.1

Sun
Bush 48.3
Kerry 47.8

Mond
Bush 51.4
Kerry 47.5

A quick average of the Bush data (43.7+48.3+51.4) / 3 = 47.8
and Kerry data (48.1+47.8+47.5) = 47.8

shows the basis for Tuesdays 48 - 48 tie

if you roll off Saturday raw data and use a conservative number like Sun B48.3 K47.8 Today's 3 day tracking number can be predicted like this:

Bush (48.3+51.4+48.3) / 3 = 49.3
Kerry (47.8+47.5+47.8) / 3 = 47.7

But I expect a better number today for Bush. That is why I predict as I do. Cross your fingers!

Swire, in answer to your question, Ren answered it perfectly. Today is Wednesday, I told everybpdy on Monday that I would look at this afternoon's Rasmussen numbers and have an idea of the trend. To go from two down to a tie means we had a very good polling day Monday. If yesterday was as good we could easily be two up today.

I'll say it again, I don't want to hear bellyaching from anybody that isn't out dowing literature drops in their neighborhoods, who aren't volunteering for the county Republican operations to get out the vote, who aren't offering to drive shut-in Republicans to the polls, who aren't donating what they can... We will win for this reason and this reason only... we have a better ground game. We rely upon fired up volunteers. The Dems rely upon hired firms to handle their GOTV activities and registrations and such. Paid workers will never be as motivated as volunteers. So if you are scared, get off your butt and get involved!



If it doesn't get released. You guys are going to have to enlighten us when this is all over.

Just looking at Rasmussen's numbers it looks like Sunday was a really bad day for W. Looks like he held a lead even with Saturday's numbers, but once Sunday came along there was almost a two and a half point swing in one day(W -1.2, JK +1.2). I think tomorrow's numbers will be the most accurate having three days of weekday polling.

who has a more updated poll for WI? Rasmussen shows sept as the latest.
