Seventy-nine percent (79%) of voters in the president’s party think he is likely to be reelected, compared to 60% of GOP voters who believe Romney will win. Among voters not affiliated with either of the major parties, Obama is the projected winner by a 51% to 32% margin.

Among those who plan to vote for Obama, 90% see him as the likely winner. Seventy-one percent (71%) of Romney voters think their candidate will win.

Solid majorities of Republicans and unaffiliated voters expect the GOP to remain in charge of the House. Democrats are evenly divided on the question. Sixty-two percent (62%) of GOP voters also think their party will win a majority in the Senate, compared to 53% of Democrats who believe their party will triumph instead. Unaffiliated voters by a 42% to 35% margin say Democrats will retain their majority in the Senate.
