PUBLIC OPINION > Mitt Romney Is Ahead in SodaHead Poll
News 2012/10/16 19:00:00
With less than a month before the election, now is a great time to start looking at how people are going to vote. There's still time to decide, and you can be sure the candidates are going to make these last few weeks stretch, but most people probably have a pretty good idea of who they're voting for. We asked SodaHead users who they're casting their ballot for.
The people have spoken, and it looks like Mitt Romney is way out in front! SodaHeads were 18% more likely to pick Romney over Obama. Naturally, liberals and conservatives voted in favor of their own party, but only 84% of liberal voters picked Obama compared to the 93% of conservatives who picked Romney. SodaHead voters were also 24% more likely to be conservative. But how did the rest of the demographics break down?
Big Incomes Pick Obama
With more than 2,500 votes overall, we had a pretty big sample size for voters who make over $100,000 a year. It was interesting to find that people making that much were about twice as likely as any other bracket to say they're voting for Obama. Unemployed voters, on the other hand, were more likely to pick Romney.
Libertarians Look Elsewhere
Conservative voters were absolutely on Romney's side, with 93% of the vote in his hands. However, libertarians were a little more likely to look elsewhere. About 36% of them plan on voting for someone else, while 35% of them are planning to vote for Romney. Progressives, on the other hand, were only 5% less likely to vote for Obama than liberals.
The Unemployed Don't Want Obama
Breaking it down by employment status, students were the only demographic going for Obama. Next to full-time workers, the unemployed were the least likely to vote for Obama, with only 28% picking the current president. However, full-time voters were more likely than the unemployed to pick Romney -- 58% of full-time workers compared to 45% of the unemployed.
