Yesterday we asked Bespoke readers to take part in two Presidential election polls. The first asked who will you be voting for on election day, while the second asked who do you think will win the election.
As shown below, of the 445 respondents to the first poll, 52% said they will be voting for Mitt Romney, 34% said they will be voting for Barack Obama, and 14% said they're either not voting or voting for someone else.
But while Romney won a majority of the backing in the first poll, a large majority believe he doesn't have a shot at actually winning. When asked who will win the election, 71% of the 410 respondents said President Obama will win, while just 29% said Romney will win.
Obama currently holds a 4-point lead in the RealClearPolitics National Average that combines all of the big polls. While this spread is just above the margin of error, public perception seems to be that Obama has this locked up.
