no surprise here in the battle for the 7 electoral votes

Survey is of 305 voters statewide.

Romney leads 58-33 (8% undecided). In august it was 58-29 so that's a 3 pt pickup!

That's a 25 point lead.

“The main reason for Governor Romney’s dominance in the poll is his command of all of the top demographic groups,” said Bill Shapard, CEO of  “I expect that the remaining undecideds will pre-dominantly break for Governor Romney putting him above 60 percent on election day.”
There is NO gender gap.  

Romney led by the same margin in the largest city of OKC, but the race is actually tied in my city of Tulsa, 46% a piece.

In the rural areas Romney leads by 42% (!)

Romney is doing the worst in the 1st Congressional District here where he's at 49% which may give some hopes to John Olson. He's a conservadem.. He's running against Teapartier Jim Bridenstine who primaried incumbent John Sullivan, and a conservative independent.  I fully expect Bridenstine to win though.

The main argument I've seen against Olson is that he'd vote for Nancy Pelosi as speaker if the dems got the majority.

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.
