Last week, we unveiled a special project we’ve been working on–our effort to estimate voting preferences in the upcoming election.
We reported that of the 810,477 likely voters who completed the survey, 47.1% planned on voting for Barack Obama and 45.2% planned on voting for Mitt Romney.
This week, we’re proud to report that we’ve passed the million mark! That’s right, over a milllion U.S. Voters have filled out our survey to tell us about their voting preferences in the upcoming presidential election. As of yesterday, our data indicates that 48.09% plan on voting for Obama and 47.27% plan on voting for Romney.
NEW this week, we also have an electoral college estimation for you as well with Obama collecting 273 electoral votes to Romney’s 265.
SurveyMonkey’s internet poll shows similar numbers to publicly available phone poll data (who all show Obama winning also), but ours show a much tighter race between the two candidates. In this week’s report, we also explain exactly HOW we weight our raw data, and WHY we do it.
