View Diary: Daily Kos Elections Polling Wrap: Obama continues to hold modest lead as race enters October (150 comments)

    Regardless of the final outcome of the debate he will probably show Romney edging up.  Tightening is a bit concerning...possibly people starting to shake off the 47% remark?  At any rate, this should be something Obama hammers hard in the debates, although I suspect Romney has been prepping for that.

    Polling until we really get a post mortem on the debates isn't going to be particularly interesting.  Obama goes in with a position of strength and, while I personally am not convinced he's a great debater (although by far he is definitely a master orator), has demonstrated he is certainly capable of taking a hit and shrugging it off.  Make Romney go on the offensive and make him look silly will probably be the greatest way to capitalize on this, similar to what happened with McCain, who was also banking on the debates in 08.
