Gravis Marketing, a non-partisan research company,
and Capitol Correspondent conducted a survey of
1,548 likely or somewhat likely voters over the two
day period of September 7th and 8th in the state of Ohio.
The survey covered the same questions as the two from
the weeks 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.
The full list of questions are given on page 3.
Overall, with a margin of error of 2.7%, Romney’s
convention bounce has turned over to Obama, with
Obama up 47% to 43%. The previous week’s poll had
Romney ahead 45% to 44%. Overall, the Democratic

To get a more accurate picture you really need to include Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein in the poll. Her nationwide success in ballot access, achievement of matching federal funding, and recent television advertisements are attracting national attention, and her impact on this race in Ohio will be significant.
