Gravis Marketing Ohio Post Convention Poll

Gravis Marketing and Capitol Correspondent conducted a survey of 1,381 registered voters on the afternoon and evening of September 2, 2012 in the state of Ohio. The survey covered the same questions as the one from the week prior, dealing with preference for the presidential candidates, Senate candidates Josh Mandel and Sherrod Brown, Governor Kasich’s job performance, whether America is headed in the right direction, which presidential candidate is more charitable, and opinions about the appropriateness of homosexual marriage.  Overall, with a margin of error of 2.9%, Obama’s previous lead over Romney of 45.3% to 44.4% has switched to a Romney lead of 46.8%to 43.7%.

Gravis Post Convention Florida Poll

After a September 2 telephone poll of 1200 likely or somewhat likely voters in Florida, Presidential candidate Mitt Romney maintains a slight lead over current President Barack Obama. With a 2.7% margin of error, Romney earned 48.0% of the vote to Obama’s 46.7%. The Republican National Convention, held in Tampa, did not help Romney’s campaign gain ground in Florida. During the last poll, taken on August 20, voters gave him 48% to Obama’s 45%. The polls also measured voters based on gender. Overall, male voters support Romney while women voters support Obama. Slightly more than 5% of the polled voters remain undecided. In the polls, 2.3% of undecided voters expressed interest in voting for Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson. His name will be on the ballots in all 50 states, and the votes from Florida could swing the election results. In addition to the Presidential race, voters will choose a United States Senator.

The convention did, however, improve the lead of Bill Nelson for the Senate race, increasing his support to 43.4% from 41.6%.
