No idea about how reliable the pollster is.

Having a hard time believing SD is 2 points closer than 2008.

If Obama is ahead nationally by 11 like Pew said and ahead in swing states like PA, OH and FL by 11, 6 and 6 like Quinnipiac said - then yes - it will be closer.

Seems optimistic, though I think Obama has a ceiling of 43 at this point.

They did reasonably well in 2010 and they focus on South Dakota only.  Given that the poll indicates that freshman Rep. Kristi Noem's race is even closer, maybe there is some buyer's regret going on in that race that is spilling over into the presidential race.

There was a similar poll from August of 2008 or so that had McCain only ahead by a few points. It returned to normal after the Palin pick, but before the Lehman collapse.

Here's an article from the Rapid City Journal lamenting this pollster being "new" in 2010, with the details on several projected races and measures that year. 60% female?

Entered:

http://uselectionatlas.org/POLLS/PRESIDENT/2012/polls.php?action=indpoll&id=4620120723171

Of the four SD polls we have, three are from Nielson Bros.

Back in December they had an R + 20 result, but in February it was down to R + 9.  The only other poll in the database is a PPP poll from January 2011 that was R+6.  South Dakota is typically only a fraction more Democratic than North Dakota, but the polling has been more divergent, but whether Nielson Bros. or DFM Research (which has two of the three ND polls in the database) is at fault, I can't say.

I think DFM is a little too favorable to Romney and a little too favorable to Heitkamp. They're probably trying to show that Heitkamp is competitive despite Romney crushing Obama by 19. Anyway, I think Obama is probably down 12 to 15 in North Dakota, 15-18 once the undecideds come in, but not right now.

That's because undecideds in the Dakotas are undecided about whether or not they'll vote Republican, not about whether they'll vote Republican or Democratic. Romney's obviously going to win here, though Obama will avoid getting blown out the way Kerry and Gore were.

Closer than 2008 in a State in which President Obama hasn't been campaigning. Valid? This state goes to President Obama if Romney collapses.

Neighboring North Dakota is much more R this year because the energy companies are dream employers.

Romney has laid down quite a few bellicose chickenhawk positions with his foreign policy.  If he were follow through on his rhetoric without moderating after being elected, we could end up fighting several new and unnecessary wars.  Not that I think he would be that dumb, but foreign policy is one area he is reckless, and I fully expect him to lean towards using military options over diplomacy.

And if you actually believe that Pew poll is accurate you're delusional
