Poll: 40 percent of eligible voters unlikely to vote, a group Obama camp needs to reach
A recent poll by Suffolk University found roughly 40 percent of America’s eligible voters said they’ll probably sit out the November election.
David Paleologos, director the Boston university’s Political Research Center, called the poll a survey of the “Other America.”
The roughly 90 million that make up that group bring mixed possibilities for President Obama and Republican rival Mitt Romney.
Of the 800 unlikely voters polled, 69 percent said they are registered to vote this year. And of those, 44 percent said they voted for Obama in 2008.
