      Here is Jed's diary about the bain ad dated Jan. 11th. And that was the full Ad. Newt had put out the 30 second spot the day before New Hampshire.

      Newt didn't have his first monster debate until the 16th.

      Trust me. I watched the gallup moving average every single day after I first saw the reports of that Bain Ad. Once it was out and on the air, Romney just STOPPED. He literally just did not move. And then he started declining and Newt began rising.

      This is AFTER Romney's victory and BEFORE Newt's debate.

      What happened during those five days? BAIN.

        relying on the graphic where your arrow looks like it points to a drop after 1/15...it looks flat in polling after the initial dot that you point out until the time around the debate

        There is no vertical axis across the graph, so maybe my eyes are fooling me, and the drop starts even earlier...do you have the raw data for the graph?

        Even if the graph doesn't prove it, remember that my assumption is that your theory and read is correct...I was pointing out that the graph may not totally support the theory though...as you say it shows a stop in clear momentum...
