We all know how misleading polls can be, but interesting read.

It doesn't seem significnt in light of the statistics for eligible voters in the past, and every party "courts" them. By the end of the primary or primaries, easch party knows how many they have "in pocket".

Of those unlikely to vote, 4 in 10 would probably vote for Obama, while 2 in 10 would likely vote for Romney.

You can read anything you want into these polls, but I'd be willing to bet the majority of those who are going to sit this one out, and voted in 2008........voted for Obama.

There are many more that voted Democrat, and are unhappy with Obama.......than voted Republican, and are happy with Obama.

It's all pure speculation on my part, but if you apply a little logic to the hypothesis......you can only conclude that Obama is losing many times more votes that he once had, than the republicans are.
