Courtesy of @Jeffersonobama on Twitter who you should all follow, here are some interesting cross tabs of the new Pew poll.

Just for reference first,    

In the 2010 election, there wasn't any more enthusiastic group then the Republicans and any more under enthusiastic group then the Democrats...yet in that year the Voter Turnout was 36% Dem  36% Republican and we got hammered worse then ever in my lifetime...

In 2008 Dems were very enthusiastic and Republicans not so much.  Dem turnout was 39%, and republicans turnout was 31% and Obama won by 6%.

So I know Dems might not be quite as Enthusiastic as they were in 08, and I know the Republicans arent as enthusiastic as they were in 2010, yet Pew had a likely Voter model in their poll of Republicans +3%.

For perspective, in the history on modern polling there has never been an election where R's outnumbered D's.  Not even 2010!   So a +3 Republican likely voter model they are using is totally suspect to begin with because there are so many more Democrats in the country then Democrats.

I'm not saying its 2008, but I feel a lot more enthusiasm this year then I felt in 2010!!

Now I'm no conspiracy theorist, but thats just common sense.

In the pew poll

68% of LV polled were over 50 years old.

Only 30% of the poll was 18-49 year olds, and they were 57% of the vote in 2008

Media & Pew Narrative is that only white men over 50 will vote.

Only 12% of voters polled were non white and no latino's in pew poll is correct.  Most figure Non white vote will be 28% Hispanics were 9% of the electorate in 2008.

78% white in the Pew Poll while 74% white in 2008 and 77% in 2004

Here were the Participants by Region

Northeast 201
Midwest  271
South 417  **
West 223

Just like the CBS Flash Debate poll mostly over 50 (70%) Southerner and few latinos and blacks.  Brutal Cross tabs

Also 38% of respondents had income over 75K.

another thing...18 point Romney Surge with women and all tied with women from a single debate that women's issues weren't even mentioned?  LOL Pew must think we are all a imbeciles!  

The Beltway media wants a tight race at all costs even pushing party ID weightings to Record highs.

Pollsters should keep party methodology constant and these big swings wouldnt be so huge.

Looking ahead, it is Most Likely a +3-4 LV Obama race now instead of +7 for Obama.  In Ohio +4 instead of +7 or +8 same in Nevada, VA, FL, IA.

Keep your heads up.  The media have a financial interest to keep this thing tied until the end.  Im not saying Obama didnt screw up, and its not closer, but its not doom and gloom!

Get out, get people to vote early in Ohio, and all the other early states, and donate a few bucks to Obama....

Have a great Night..., Rec List..I'm honored..Thank You!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
