NAACP BATTLEGROUND POLL: African Americans Remain Overwhelmingly Enthusiastic about President ObamaNovember 06, 2012
(WASHINGTON)— According to a four-state election eve poll, 93% of respondents remain enthusiastic about President Barack Obama and his administration. Seventy-nine percent of respondents are “very enthusiastic.”
The data contradicts reports labeling the growing African American electorate as apathetic in the 2012 election cycle.
The NAACP will release key data from the poll throughout the day and will release the horse race results as polls come to a close.
The NAACP battleground poll interviewed 1,600 African American voters who have already voted, or were certain to vote in the November 6, 2012 presidential election. Interviews were conducted via telephone with live callers from November 1-5, 2012. For the 4 individual states (Ohio, Virginia, Florida and Georgia), a minimum of 400 interviews were completed to provide state-specific reliable estimates, and each state is weighted to reflect the known Census demographics for African American voters. The combined four state sample carries an overall margin of error of 2.5%, while each individual state carries a margin of error of 4.9%. Interviewing was administered and overseen by Pacific Market Research.
