Gallup Poll Tracking 02-22-008

Posted by Thunder Pig on February 22, 2008

Here are the latest figures from Gallup:

Democrats:

  1. 45% Hillary Clinton
  2. 44% Barack Obama
  3. 01% Mike Gravel

Here is a graphic to show the poll tracked over time:

Has Obama peaked? Is the Hilda Beast making a comeback? Or is this just statistical noise?

The Republicans:

  1. 62% John McCain
  2. 22% Mike Huckabee
  3. 05% Ron Paul

Here is a graphic to show the poll tracked over time:

McCain and Huckabee are going in separate directions, McCain is up, and Huckabee is down, 2 out of 3 of Mitt’s Supporters going to McCain, and Ron Paul is in the weeds…below the radar on this graph. Instead of useless money bombs, poll-jacking and sign waves, the Ron Paul r3VOLution should have engaged in membership drives. They will probably never realize their childish behavior ran people away from Ron Paul. As an example, listen to this podcast: [1] [2]
I have been using that podcast locally as one of my tools to demonstrate the need for conservatives to become educated on the philosophical underpinnings of conservatism, and to get involved in politics on the precinct level.

Methodology: Gallup is interviewing no fewer than 1,000 U.S. adults nationwide each day during 2008. The results reported here are based on combined data from Feb. 18-20, 2008, including interviews with 1,006 Republican and Republican-leaning voters, and 1,218 Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters. For results based on these samples, the maximum margin of sampling error is ±3 percentage points. In addition to sampling error, question wording and practical difficulties in conducting surveys can introduce error or bias into the findings of public opinion polls.
