Latest SurveyUSA Poll Slightly Positive

Timothy Kincaid

November 3rd, 2008

SurveyUSA has been polling discouragingly for the past month:

October 6

Yes 47%
No 42%

October 17

Yes 48%
No 45%

Today SurveyUSA released a poll that shows the proposition to be slightly failing.

Yes 47%
No 50%

I don’t place too much faith in SurveyUSA. However, I am encouraged that their polling is showing a trend towards a No vote.

Could it be a way to get the no voters to stay home and not vote…or get the yes voters out stronger so that it will pass? hum…I am just hoping that the NO voters will get out and and bring down these liars. Saturday I got something in the mail saying that Obama is supporting the yes campain…I did not read it all but they were placing him and Biden as if they were saying to vote Yes! So deceptive! But why should we be surprised!

I know you don’t trust SurveyUSA, but one thing that worries me: in the case of a ‘Bradley’-effect, SurveyUSA has been the only automated pollster. Thus, if people are loath to tell a live stranger that they support Prop. 8, SurveyUSA might reflect the results better than either Field or the other.

That being sad, I’m glad that this long nightmare is about to end.

If there is a trend showing, it looks like undecided voters slowly adhering more to the No side, which is a trend I don’t mind getting feeling good about, though I’m not going to let it get my hopes up or make me complacent.

Though…what am I talking about…it’s Monday before elections and I live in Oregon…there’s not much time left to me “not get complacent” during. Maybe now’s the time to put all of my emotional eggs in one basket.

All I can do now is hope to God that my damn California Ballot gets here today so I can fedex it back home in time.

Word to the Wise: Do NOT trust well-meaning voter registration gatherers who tell you that the USPS forwards election materials when you’re signed up with address forwarding service. This piece of misinformation may have cost me my vote in the most personally important election of my lifetime.

I was out campaigning this weekend and was highly outnumbered by the YES on 8ers. One of them assulted me. I was on the news 3 various times. I’ve blogged about it.

God I hope this doesn’t pass…

Pomo, sorry to hear about you being assaulted. Hope you are OK. Was this in Sacramento?

California – Vote “NO” on Prop. 8!
Arizona – Vote “NO” on Prop. 102! AGAIN!
Florida – Vote “NO” on Amendment 2!
Connecticut – Vote “NO” on Question 1!
