Growth of early voting transforms electoral strategy

Growth of early voting transforms electoral strategy | gov for the first time | Scoop.it

This article was about early voting. Both parties support it. Obama's main tactic in 2008 was to encourage early voting. In this election he is supporting it even more, hoping to increase the percentage of early voters from the last election.  Early voting started early voting in the western statesand started off will mailing the ballots. Early voting helps to determine where the election will  turn to, which is why many people incourage early voting.

Poll: Obama retakes lead after short-lived Romney Tampa bounce - The Hill's Ballot Box

Poll: Obama retakes lead after short-lived Romney Tampa bounce - The Hill's Ballot Box | gov for the first time | Scoop.it

In the week before the GOP Convention, Obama led in the polls with 46%, while Romney had 42%.  The Convention's bounce landed Romney with 44% and Obama with 42%.  Now, Obama leads (slightly) with 44%, Romney right behind him with 43%.  I agree with the 39% of registered voters that said the convention was good.  I am not a Republican and I wasn't swayed by the convention, but I thought they did a good job making Romney more likeable.  I was surprised that only 32% said they found him more likeable after the convention.  It was a one-point gain from Friday, but I expected higher.  Obama's likeability dropped one point to 47% from Friday, so I guess the Republicans did a good job bashing him.  Overall, this is a very tight horse race and I think it'lll stay that way.
