Presidential Polls: Latest California Poll 2012 Results Shows Obama Losing State PopularityBy Mischelle Esguerra on Oct 28, 2012 in International, Politics, United States, World •
The latest 2012 presidential polls conducted by several firms, except Gallup poll, showed that US President Barack Obama still enjoys the lead over Republican candidate Mitt Romney. With less than two weeks before the 2012 US Presidential elections, however, a California presidential poll indicates the fading popularity of the US President in the blue state.

The latest results of the University of South Carolina Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences and Los Angeles Times poll, published on last Wednesday, October 24, showed that US President Obama still has a sizable lead over Romney. The USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Time presidential poll result, however, indicates that Obama will be unable to duplicate his 2008 historic poll victory.
As of posting, the Democratic President has 14-point advantage over the Republican nominee among likely voters. In 2008, Obama had a 24-point advantage, consider as one the biggest margin in history, against his former Republican presidential rival John McCain.
Political analysts pointed out the decline of Obama‘s popularity among white and men voters. After enjoying an 18-point advantage from male voters in 2008, Obama has only a one point lead among likely male voters. Obama had a two-percentage lead over McCain but now trails Romney by 17 points. The US President meanwhile, has a 26 point advantage over the Republican candidate among likely female voters.
The USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Time poll result also showed that 51 percent of California residents were not satisfied in the nation’s direction.
Election Day is scheduled on Tuesday, November 6, 2012.
