In a shocking new WWN/PPQ Presidential Poll, Mitt Romney is pulling away from Barack Obama. Romney’s up by 22!
Former Governor Mitt Romney is pulling ahead in the 2012 Presidential race according to a recent national poll. The WWN/PPQ poll was the third most accurate poll in 2008 and its latest polling shows Mitt Romney leading in the presidential race and in ALL the battleground states.
The President and Mitt Romney had been tied in the Presidential race until this weekend. But now Mitt Romney is leading nationally and, most importantly, is taking a commanding lead in all the battleground states. Romney leads the President by 10 in Virginia, by 9 in Florida and by a whopping 15 points in Iowa and New Hampshire. Ohio is too close to call, but Mitt Romney is leading by 6 points there as well.
There was big change over the weekend. Single women are now turning away from the president and throwing their support behind the President. Some say that the reason single women are doing so is that Mitt Romney promised to give every single woman $10,000 “on my very first day in office.” Romney is also offering seniors a “major tax rebate” and is giving Hispanics a “two year tax holiday”.
Former Clinton adviser, Dick Morris, says that the WWN/PPQ poll is actually underestimating the Romney vote. “I think Romney will win 48 states on election day. He’ll win every state, except for Hawaii and Illinois.”
After hearing about the poll on the campaign trail, President Obama burst into tears:
The poll showed most voters are disappointed with the country’s direction, and want Mitt Romney to give the country a “corporate makeover.” Sixty-one percent of the voters want a “change.”
President Obama still have a 65% favorability rating, but voters would rather see the President on TV or in a movie than in the White House. “He’s a celebrity and we want our celebrities in Hollywood, not in the White House,” said Todd Scott of Akron, Ohio.
Note: WWN/PPQ uses the same metrics that the NY Times and the Wall Street Journal employ in their polls.
