#rsrh I imagine that this Gallup tracking poll is causing all sorts of entertaining panic right now.

Having a renowned pollster go from Obama +5 to tied in three days – among registered voters – tends to do that.

Mind you: the polls go up.  The polls go down. Case in point: Race tied in Rasmussen again.  My take on the whole thing is that Romney’s debate performance got him out of the hole – and that Obama hasn’t yet learned the right lessons from his screwup, assuming that he ever does – but let’s not get cocky.  Volunteer, if you’re worried.

    Looking forward to Moe breaking out “DOOM” and Allahpundit breaking out the hump-bot.

  • physics geek says:

    AP will not break out the hump-bot until all of Barry’s legal challenges to the election finally end. But that will be a banner day.

  • NotSoBlueStater says:

    That’s what makes historical analysis so interesting here. People say that the debates typically don’t have much impact. But defining moments obviously do. Romney’s defining moment may have happened during a debate, rather than with his head pointing out of a tank, for example.

    Ras polls their Dems on the weekend.

    Pew poll a STINKER FOR OBAMA! Romney up 4!

  • Romney can’t be “surging” unless you accept the premise that Romney was behind. When polls use stupid levels of partisan ID mismatch, you know that the pollsters are choosing the winners.

    Romney was, is, and will be ahead of Obama (barring dead girl/live boy). The media just wants to preserve the illusion of a horse race to keep up viewership.
