  • Turning To The Right: 63% Of NASCAR Followers Support Mitt Romney For President

    Voters who follow NASCAR (68%) are more likely than average U.S. voters (54%) to say the country is on the wrong track, according to data from Republican polling firm The Tarrance Group. The firm conducted a national poll via telephone Oct. 1-4 among 1,022 registered “likely” voters. Overall, 18% of likely voters in the survey said that they followed NASCAR very or somewhat closely. Also, while 48% of voters disapprove of President Obama’s job performance, nearly two thirds (63%) of NASCAR followers disapprove. NASCAR followers have the same priorities as all voters, with 71% mostly concerned with “pocketbook” issues, including the economy (27%), government spending and the budget deficit (19%), and jobs (16%). While President Obama is up in general election polls, Mitt Romney receives 63% of the vote from NASCAR followers, while Obama receives 34% and 3% are undecided (The Tarrance Group).
