Latest findings in Economist/YouGov Poll

(Week of 10/26/2012)  The third and last presidential debate focused on foreign policy — but the issue matters little to people, and even though the President was perceived as the "winner" of that debate, the latest Economist/YouGov Poll suggests he still has problems convincing the public that he can do a better job ...

(Week of 10/26/2012)  As Hurricane — and then winter storm — Sandy began its devastating march through the North Atlantic states, the presidential election seemed stalled: in an Economist/YouGov Poll completed just as the storm began, President Obama held a statistically non-significant one-point lead over his Republican challenger Mitt Romney, just about where the ...

(Week of 10/20/2012)  Incumbent Presidents usually hold an advantage on foreign policy issues, as they have been dealing with international crises for four years. And President Obama’s approval rating rose after the killing of Osama bin Laden in 2011. But Americans see weaknesses in the President’s management of foreign policy — something his opponent ...

(Week of 10/13/2012)  Supporters of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney have consistently expressed more enthusiasm about casting a ballot this fall, and while much of that enthusiasm has been anti-Obama as opposed to pro-Romney, it could help ensure that those Romney voters will get to the polls next month. Despite the Vice President’s energy ...

(Week of 10/13/2012)  Two weeks ago, Americans expected President Barack Obama to win the first presidential debate, but they had different expectations going into  tonight’s debate.

(Week of 10/13/2012)  Last week’s Vice Presidential debate underscored the competitiveness of this year’s presidential election: in the latest Economist/YouGov Poll, the debate came close to being a draw in the eyes of the public, though Vice President Joe Biden edged out Republican nominee Congressman Paul Ryan when Americans were asked "who won" the ...

(Week of 10/13/2012)  Once again, the presidential election is neck-and-neck, with likely voters closely divided.
