    Who better understands American families, Barack Obama or Mitt Romney? Who would you rather lead us into war? Who’s a bigger liar? Are voters suspicious of Mormonism? And which candidate would win in a fistfight?

    Yahoo! News and Esquire teamed up to commission pollster Gary Langer of Langer Research Associates to survey more than a thousand Americans about those topics (and many more) in the days following the political conventions. We asked questions most pollsters don’t—on religion, race, personal values, class, and personality—as well as the usual ones about voter preference. We will report our findings over the next few weeks, and the complete survey will be available on Yahoo! News, in the November issue of Esquire, and on Esquire.com's The Politics Blog.

    This week, we begin with the basics:
    [​IMG]Obama is up by 4 among likely voters.​
    When we cross-tabulate those results with demographic information, we see familiar divides.
    [​IMG]Those in the highest income brackets favor Romney.
    The numbers change, though, when we ask all Americans to predict who they think is going to win:

    [​IMG]57 percent would bet on Obama to win.​
    Or, in a scenario straight from Ann Coulter’s imagination:[​IMG]Obama would easily win a fistfight.
    Click here for the full results of these survey questions, and check back next week for the latest findings.

    METHODOLOGY

    This Esquire/Yahoo! News Poll was conducted by landline and cellular telephone Sept. 7-10, 2012, among a random national sample of 1,002 adults. Results have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4 percentage points for the full sample, 4.5 points for registered voters and 5 points for likely voters. The survey was produced for Esquire/Yahoo! News by Langer Research Associates, with sampling, data collection and tabulation by Interviewing Service of America of Van Nuys, CA

    I'm not a betting man and no betting man bet on Holyfield to whoop Tyson's ass either.

    So just continue to get an orgasm based on fake opinion polls.

    The only poll that counts is on Nov. 6.

    I'm a realist.

    I'm not gonna gloat or get depressed based on some opinion poll that I'm not even sure whether it actually happened or not.

    Think about it, what proof is there to show they actually interviewed people?

    Have you ever been polled by anybody? I haven't.

    So, so much for these opinion polls. To me they aren't worth a hill of beans.

    Hizi "checks and balances" zinahakikisha trustworthyness ya hizi surveys... Bongo tumezoea ''The survey was produced for REDET by REDET, with sampling, data collection and tabulation by REDET'', halafu wanatumia matokeo ya kuandaa mazingira ya kuiba kura.

    Taasisi zinzo deal na polls
    kama Gallup kwa mfano ni taasisi trustworthy
    ziko kwenye hii kitu for years
    na kila election zina aaminika sababu result ikitoka hazitofautiani sana

    zina credibility

    Kweli. Nakumbuka kwenye mkesha wa uchaguzi mwaka ule Fox News walitoa survey yao inayoonyesha McCain yuko mbele kwa pts 6 wakati Gallup, Real Clear, etc. wakionyesha yuko nyuma kwa mbali. Organizations zinafuata methodologies tofauti tofauti (na ku'question' integrity ya methodology siyo kitu kigeni). Kwa uhakika zaidi ni vema kufuatilia polls ya organizations kadhaa au ''polls of polls'' .

    Hapana. Kwa uhakika zaidi ni vema kusubiri polls za Nov. 6 ambazo ndizo za ukweli.

    Sawa Nyani, lakini hapa si tulikuwa tunazungumzia 'opinion' polls (ili kujiandaa kwa polls za Nov. 6)?

    Samahani, hapa najiuliza bila kupata jibu. Not that I'm trying to be controversial, lahasha. Hivi, uchaguzi wa Marekani sisi watanzania unatuhusu nini? Haya mambo waachiwe wenyewe wapiga kura wa Marekani, wao ndiyo wanajuwa nani anawafaa. Sie twasubiri kifo cha CCM kunako 2015, Amen!

    Jasusi Jasusi mkuu... usiukatae ukweli..Mimi na wewe tunaelewa Obama kama binadamu yeyote ana mapungufu lakini naamini yeye ni bora kuliko Mitt... Mitt most of the time hajui hata upepo wake unaelekea wapi? Anajaribu kuiga mambo mengi ambayo Obama Administration inafanya. Mimi nipo 110% sure Obama atashinda hata iweje.. Wamarekani sio wajinga... Uchumi sio kila kitu kwa America kuna mambo mengi yapo ambayo ukiangalia kwa undani Obama Administration wamejitahidi.. OBAMA ANAPIGA VITA MAPEBARI NUKTA.

    Kuna watu hapa JF ni wamarekani kuliko wamarekani wenyewe, na wanaongea na 'authority' kama wao ndio wanaijua Marekani ndani nje. Kuna wengine wanafuatilia tu habari za uchaguzi kama wanavyofuatilia habari nyingine.
