    Reuters/Ipsos does a tracking poll. This was a reaction poll.

    Even the trackers matter for the trendlines.

    Obama didn't budge. Romney gained with his base.

    Romney was never going to get 39 percent of the vote, and no other polling shows him that low. If anything, the pre-debate poll was an outlier. The new numbers are more inline with the polling consensus.

    But looking at the trendlines, seeing Romney gain after winning a debate is no shocker. What is encouraging is that Obama didn't lose the debate. He held his support steady.
