ELECTION COUNTDOWN

POLL: Logo Releases New LGBT Voter Survey Results For Presidential Election

Logo teamed up with Harris Interactive on a follow-up survey to its August poll, surveying the likely results of LGBT voters in the 2012 presidential election. As you can see, there has been some shifting, but gays and lesbians are still firmly with Team Obama.

Highlights from the poll data include:

*In the days following the last of the presidential debates, President Obama’s 44-point lead among LGBT voters in August expanded to 52 points.

* While Mitt Romney actually overcame a 5-point deficit to +2 statistical tie among general population voters, his 52-point deficit among LGBT voters is more reminiscent of what exit polls looked like among gay voters in the Democratic year of 2008 (2008 exit poll of gay voters: +62 for Obama) than in the Republican year of 2010 (2010 exit poll of gay voters: +38 Republican candidates for the House of Representatives nationally).

* The movement toward Obama is mostly a shift of LGBT voters who were unsure on the initial vote in August (9%) who have now moved to Obama.

* If Election Day is as narrow as many are predicting, Romney’s inability to turn these unsure LGBT voters to his candidacy could mean the difference between victory and defeat.

On Monday, the day before the election, Wanda Sykes will host another NewNowNext Vote special, with guests including  RuPaul, Al Sharpton, Chely Wright, Dean Obeidallah, S.E. Cupp, Judy Gold and Thomas Roberts.
