Poll: Second Debate Changed Few Minds

In vote preferences, being single — and the demographic differences associated with single people — is as strong a factor as sex. Single men and women alike prefer Kerry over Bush — single men by 58 percent-39 percent, single women by 57 percent-38 percent.

Married women split about evenly. And married men, by contrast, prefer Bush by 63 percent-33 percent.


This poll was conducted by telephone Oct. 7-10, 2004, among a random national sample of 2,409 adults, including 2,026 registered voters and 1,601 likely voters. The results have a 2.5-point error margin for the likely voter sample. Sampling, data collection and tabulation are conducted by TNS of Horsham, Pa.
