Here’s the real indication that the wheels are coming off the Mitt Romney campaign. NASCAR, that bastion of Republican politics, Dixie pride and Christian gusto, is turning toward President Obama.

At least that’s the result of the latest Zogby poll, which has the President leading Mitt Romney among NASCAR fans, 48 percent to 41 percent. And that’s just among likely voters — if you factor in every NASCAR fan polled, the President’s margin is even wider (49-40).

Romney tries to stop the momentum.

    I call b.s. on this poll…I don’t know anyone who will admit supporting Obama in this election.

      The number of thumbs down should point to your ignorance.

      Only Obamabots and koolaid drinking drones like tsi431. Unfortunately, most of the people on here are lefties. Thats the few thumbs down you got.

      I don’t understand who in their right mind would admit to supporting Romney – the guy is just an empty minded chameleon. He is only in to to help the rich (or didn’t you see that video), he is hiding his past income taxes because he had major tax evasion issues with off shore accounts that they are working on to fix under a tax amnesty program, and he paid, what, like 14% taxes on a $20 Million income last year??? Give me a break, and he wants to LOWER that tax rate for himself and his other rich buddies? And what exactly is his position? He is against the healthcare plan, but hey, he wrote it and now he is in favor of most of it? Or not, just send uninsured people to the ER??? Do you know how much MORE that is costing us? In 2007, he said he was pro-choice, but now pro-life? THE GUY DOESN’T EVEN KNOW WHY YOU CAN’T OPEN A WINDOW WHEN FLYING IN A PRESSURIZED CABIN 30,000 feet OVER THE EARTH???? And you admit you are supporting HIM? To be the leader of this country????

        You really believe what you just typed? You are high on the koolaid, buddy. Look at the present dude’s record. You think it’s better? If you do, you are beyond help.

    There must be more closet NASCAR fans than anyone realizes.

    Either that or the NASCAR fans were turned off when Romney said he’s friends with NASCAR owners.
