At the Wire, Romney Still Leads in Kentucky, But Now It's Because Voters Like Him: 6 days until votes are counted in Kentucky, Republican Mitt Romney defeats Democrat Barack Obama
54% to 41%. The results are little changed from a SurveyUSA poll 6 weeks ago, when Romney led Obama by 14 points. But: what has changed is, Romney supporters today are voting "for"
Romney, as opposed to voting "against Barack Obama," which they were 6 weeks ago. In research conducted for the Louisville Courier Journal, SurveyUSA finds: * By 53% to 38%, Kentucky
voters say Romney would do a better job managing the federal budget.
* By the same 53% to 38%, Kentucky voters say Romney has a better economic plan.
* Kentucky voters split on which candidate is more in touch with the average working person.
* By 58% to 39%, voters disapprove of the job that Obama is doing as President. Cell-phone and home-phone respondents included in this research: SurveyUSA interviewed 800 adults from
the state of Kentucky 10/28/12 through 10/30/12. Of the adults, 721 were registered to vote in Kentucky. Of the registered voters, 662 were determined by SurveyUSA to be likely to vote on
Election Day. This research was conducted using blended sample, mixed mode. Respondents reachable on a home telephone (72% of likely voters) were interviewed on their home telephone in
the recorded voice of a professional announcer. Respondents not reachable on a home telephone (28% of likely voters) were shown a questionnaire on their smartphone, tablet or other electronic
device. In 2008, John McCain carried Kentucky by 16 points. Romney today leads by 13 points. 8 electoral college votes are at stake.

If the election for President were today, would you vote for ... (choices rotated) Republican Mitt Romney? Democrat Barack Obama? Or one of the other candidates?

** Too few respondents of this type were interviewed for this data to be meaningful.
Statement of Methodology: About the Poll: This poll was conducted by telephone in the voice of a professional announcer. Respondent households were selected at random, using Random Digit
Dialed (RDD) sample provided by Survey Sampling, of Fairfield CT. All respondents heard the questions asked identically. The pollster's report includes the geography that was surveyed; the
date(s) interviews were conducted, the number of respondents who answered each question and the theoretical margin of sampling error for each question. Where necessary, respondents were
weighted using the most recent US Census estimates for age, gender, ethnic origin and region, to align the sample to the population. In theory, one can say with 95% certainty that the results
would not vary by more than the stated margin of sampling error, in one direction or the other, had the entire universe of respondents with home telephones been interviewed with complete
accuracy. There are other possible sources of error in all surveys that may be more serious than sampling error. These include: the difficulty of interviewing respondents who do not have a home
telephone; the refusal by some with home telephones to be interviewed; the order in which questions are asked; the wording of questions; the way and extent to which data are weighted; and the
manner in which specialized populations, such as likely voters, are determined. It is difficult to quantify the errors that may result from these and other factors. Research methodology, questionnaire
design and fieldwork for this survey were completed by SurveyUSA of Clifton, NJ. This statement conforms to the principles of disclosure of the National Council on Public Polls.
