Obama Has The Inside Track On NASCAR Fans, Poll Shows

Posted By on Mon, Sep 24, 2012 at 3:52 PM

Today in news I wasn't expecting to see, from Jalopnik:

Polling amongst NASCAR fans isn't looking good for Mitt Romney, who is behind Barack Obama by seven percentage points — 41% to 48%.

The poll, conducted by polling pollsters Zogby, showed that NASCAR's loyal fan base are actually in Barack Obama's corner, so to speak. The crosstabs show a small sampling, but those who identify as NASCAR fans prefer the president.

Romney had been on the straight and narrow working to appeal to the traditionally conservative NASCAR base and has already spent time campaigning in North Carolina around NASCAR shops. There is even a Romney/Ryan 2012 NASCAR in existence.

Sure, it's only a poll, and sure it's a small sample size, but the fact that Obama is beating Romney in these demographics at all is incredibly surprising — especially when one considers how many NASCAR drivers have turned down invitations to the White House.

But hey, I guess that stock car racers aren't the only ones who keep turning left, eh?
