The Wheels Fall Off for Romney as Obama Leads with NASCAR Fans, 48%-41%
<snip>

Obama leads in almost every region of the country, and only trailed Romney by six points in the South, 41%-47%. Among voters who shop at Wal-Mart on a weekly basis, Romney’s lead is within the poll’s 3.4% margin of error, 45%-42%. Obama leads with voters who are or who have a family member in the military, 54%-39%. Most surprisingly, Obama only trails Romney by seven points with those who consider themselves born again Christians, 40%-47%. The president also leads with NASCAR fans, 48%-41%.

Romney’s problems with NASCAR fans could go back to when he mocked them while attending the Daytona 500 this year. The New York Times reported Romney’s Daytona experience in the most classic of ways, “But the crowd initially booed Mr. Romney, who occasionally struck a discordant note, as when he approached a group of fans wearing plastic ponchos. ‘I like those fancy raincoats you bought,’ he said. ‘Really sprung for the big bucks.’ And when asked if he was a fan of the sport, he mentioned that ‘I have some great friends who are Nascar team owners.’”

Romney mocked NASCAR fans, and then he followed it up by mocking the 47%, some of which I am sure also follow NASCAR. Overall, Romney’s poor showing with NASCAR fans reflects his inability to connect with people. NASCAR is a national sport now, so it isn’t just Southern white people watching anymore. Romney’s NASCAR fail was a sign of a much bigger problem. Romney has tried to suck up to NASCAR fans, but it looks like his insincere advances are being rebuffed.

The born again and NASCAR crowds are flirting with dumping [Romney] for Obama.

I love it. NASCAR fans are all over the country and support Obama. It looks like that 47% comment is really going to hurt Willard....people don't like being put down.

No, they don't, regardless of their political leanings. Especially by someone as smug as Romney.

I am a long-time NASCAR fan, and seeing those numbers does my heart good!

But -- but -- but --
He's friends with NASCAR team owners! What could possibly go wrong?
