FTFA: "Slightly more than half of Florida voters believe President George W. Bush is to blame for the nation's economic problems."

Slightly more than half is bad news. For Rmoney.

I'd almost be okay with a Romney victory if meant this meme dies.

Sacrificing the economy, civil rights, our respect abroad... It would be worth it. Almost.

But if slightly more than half believe Romney would do a better job fixing them, that is bad news for Obama. Despite what Crossroads GPS tries to shill, I think most people blame Bush for the econ. It just comes down to if Obama has done enough to fix it and if people think Romney would fix it faster.

Voter focused on economy will not be taking the country to Bush era policies.

Good point. I always forget that we are talking about the average american voter, one of the stupidest creatures to ever grace the planet.

I expect we'll be seeing 4 more years of this meme either way

For half of the people in the US, 'the economy' means that check they get from Uncle Sugar every month. Plus the freebies like phones, housing, food, etc. That's why we're in the hellhole economy we're in...not because of Bush, but because of lazy people who sit around with their hand out expecting someone else to fill it.

The exit polls at my polling station were pretty hinky looking. And by polls I mean poll, tehre was just one guy who was probably a grad student from UMass trying to intern or something. Anyway here's my CSB.

We walked up to town hall to vote (my town/precinct has about 3000 registered voters). On our way in there was a guy with a clipboard, wearing a nametag identifying him as an exit poller, and he was asking a middle-age woman some questions about whatever exit pollsters ask (I've never been approached by one). It was me, Mr. Dragon, and both kids because we take them in with us every time, so we presented as a "family of four". Went in, voted. Walked back out. The guy wasn't talking to anyone, we were the only people leaving right then, and he gave us a small wave and we kept going.

There was no real reason for him NOT to stop us. He wasn't doing anything and no one else was approaching. So before I go make a tinfoil hat I'm gonna toss out there that maybe the exit poll people are profiling who they ask in order to make it look like people are super focused on republican issues.

/i live in massachusetts
//cherry-picking the republicans is gonna be reeeeaaaaallllly hard
//since there are like, seven of them, and at least three were holding signs exactly 100 yards away

The impact of an estimated 2,000 mining layoffs this year in Kentucky handed that state to Romney.

I was going to ask if you take a mortgage interest deduction on your income taxes, but you probably live in your Mom's basement.

I'm an Orlando voter. The economy is of great import to me, which is why I voted for Obama.

The last thing I want is a return to 2008 economic policies.

The AP's exit poll methodology is:

Stratified probability sample, taking into account population size and past voting history, of nearly 1,000 voting precincts nationwide -- from 10 to 50 per state where statewide exit polling was conducted.
At each sampling location an interviewer approaches voters at a specified interval -- for example, every fifth voter -- as he or she exits the polling place. The interval helps ensure the randomness of the sample. The sample is designed so that everyone who votes in the general election has a known probability of being included.
Participation is voluntary and anonymous.
The National Election Pool prepared the questionnaire, including questions about demographics such as gender, age, race, and issues related to the person's vote choice.
The interviewing starts when the polls open and continue throughout the day until about an hour before polls close.
