    Poll: Nine percent of '08 Obama supporters defect to Romney

    Not a good sign for obama and this a gallup poll..one of the more fairer polsters I believe..



    A new poll shows that President Obama is losing nine percent of his 2008 supporters to Mitt Romney..
    Gallup finds that 86 percent of 2008 Obama voters say they plan to vote for the president again. Nine percent, however, say they're now supporting Romney.
    On the other hand, 92 percent of John McCain voters say they're supporting Mitt Romney. Five percent of those McCain voters are now voting for Obama.
    That's a net shift of four percent of the electorate moving away from Obama.
    Gallup also finds that five percent of Obama voters and three percent of McCain voters are undecided or voting for neither.
    "The race remains close because Obama's margin in 2008 was large enough that he could still be tied or in the lead this year if his support is a few percentage points lower," the Gallup analysis concludes.

    Quote me on this if you like but this election will be a blowout and Romney/republicans will win in a landslide even bigger than 2008. We gave the democrats a chance in 2008 and they were more concerned with expanding government, government spending and class warfare than they were about the plight of the average American.
