Mitt Romney has gone to two NASCAR races this year. Both times the events were delayed, one until the next day, by heavy showers.
Sports fans are superstitious and perhaps followers of America's favorite auto racing series equated the politician's attendance with the disruptions.
Or maybe NASCAR fans are no longer confined to traditional Southern red states.
Whatever the reason, the latest Zogby Poll found NASCAR fans favored Barack Obama over Mitt Romney by 49 percent to 42 percent, respectively.
That's outside the poll's 3.4 percent margin of error. Almost 10 percent were undecided.
The poll of 860 likely voters was conducted online -- maybe Democrats had more reliable Internet access -- between Sept. 21 and Sept. 22 by JZ Analytics.You also might find these items of interest:
