SoonerPoll Oklahoma 2012 Presidential Poll
  • Mitt Romney 58% (62%)
  • Barack Obama 29% (27%)
  • Undecided 13% (11%)
Survey of 495 likely voters was conducted July 26 - August 14, 2012. The margin of error is ± 4.4 percentage points. Results from the poll conducted May 7-10, 2012 are in parentheses.
Inside the numbers:
Three-fourths of those describing themselves as "somewhat conservative" and nine-of-10 who said they are "very conservative" favored Romney.

Moderates and liberals supported Obama, but by smaller margins.

Eighty-eight percent of Republicans said they would vote for Romney, with only 4 percent for Obama and the rest undecided.

Nearly 30 percent of Democrats said they would vote for Romney, with Obama getting 55 percent of the Democratic vote - a slight improvement from May. Democrats were about twice as likely as Republicans to say they didn't know who they would vote for or to refuse to answer.

Romney was preferred by more than 60 percent of voters in the Oklahoma City metro area and among the state's nonurban voters but was weaker in the Tulsa metro area, where his lead on Obama was reduced to 7 points - 46 percent to 39 percent.
