    Mitt Romney's recent slide in several polls, including those in the battleground states of Ohio, Virginia and Florida, is troubling enough for the GOP. But, now the Republican nominee appears to be trailing President Barack Obama among a traditionally conservative constituency: NASCAR fans.

    Obama leads Romney 49 to 42 percent among NASCAR enthusiasts, according to a new Zogby poll by JZ Analytics.

    As the liberal blog PoliticusUSA.com pointed out, Romney was booed at the Daytona 500 in February during a campaign trip ahead of Super Tuesday.

    We don't know whether obama really leads or not since this information came from the left to begin with.


    The Obama NASCAR lead was first spotted in the left-leaning PolitcusUSA blog and reported in the Huffington Post.

    It looks like David Axelrod's astroturfing.

    I believe this statement qualilfies you for a position on Romney's campaign staff.

    My husband and I are NASCAR fans (go Denny Hamlin!). We're in the 53%. He's military, I work in law enforcement. We're both planning to vote for Obama.

    Here's a link to the actual poll: http://www.jzanalytics.com/DATA/Crosstabs_Voters_2way_and_5way_horserace_092112

    On this poll, Obama is killing it with voters under age 50 and both male/female voters, non-whites, people who earn under $75k a year, and people who live everywhere but in the south. He's also winning with military/military families (54.3% for Obama), moderates, and independents.

    An online survey of of 860 likely voters nationwide – taken Sept. 21 and 22 – shows President Barack Obama with an 7-point lead over GOP challenger Mitt Romney, according to a new Zogby Poll [PDF] with JZ Analytics.

    The question posed: "If the election for president were held today, for whom would you vote?" The answer: Forty-nine percent of NASCAR fans would vote for Obama. 42 percent said Romney.


    But if you think that NASCAR fans are conservative Southern rednecks, then you'd probably be drawing the wrong conclusion from this poll. Wal-Mart shoppers, Christian conservatives, and white men are still in the Romney camp.

    In fact, the NASCAR voting preferences almost exactly match the Zogby results from all likely American voters: Obama now leads 49 percent to 41 percent.

    Ohhhh, now this is a good one. Who is jzanalytics? Actually the question is Whois.com jz analytics?

    Whois Lookup | Domain Availability - Registration Information

    It was created March 11 of last year and the administrative contact is Domains by Proxy.

    Just as I thought, it's all astroturfing.

    It's just the kind of thing Melky Cabrera tried to use to explain a positive drug test. Only believed by the incredibly gullible.

    Liberals create bogus polls to fit their agenda and slogans.

    There's no way in hell Obamination gets more support at a NASCAR race than any Republican.
