Holy fucking shit, Batman!
Myers Research (D) & Grove Insight (D). 10/23-24. Likely voters. MoE 4% (No trend lines)
McCain (R) 44
Obama (D) 40
Early voters (34% of the sample)
McCain (R) 46
Obama (D) 47
The sample was 40 percent Republican, 33 Democratic, and 26 percent independent. ASU has its own survey coming Monday, and they’ve hinted at similar results. Makes me wish I would’ve polled Arizona instead of Tennessee.
Four points? Four fucking points?! And ahead in early voting? This is fucking Arizona we’re talking about, right? McCain’s home state? His stronghold? The one he should have walked away with for free? Rassmussen had it at fucking 59-38% last month, for fuck’s sake! Myers showed a 14-pt lead! And now we’ve got Obama within spitting distance?
Hot damn, home state! You go! Kick that carpetbagger in the nads!
I’m so proud of you! *sniffle*
(And before you all start screaming “outlier,” consider this. Maybe the locals at KAET knew something the nationals didn’t. Not to mention Bruce Merrill, professor emeritus at ASU’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism, thought just a few days ago that new polls would show McCain with a very narrow lead. You can take him, AZ!)
