  •  I actually think that the bounce (8+ / 0-)

    was from a lot of repugs (maybe some of them tea batsthit party, others not themselves so crazy but loyal) that woke up and saw that rmoney has some energy and conviction (and I use conviction in the sense that he just want so badly to be president) in contrast to a (shall we say) meek Obama who they hate so much anyway........ rmoney looked good to them no matter what.

    And I would say that rmoney's performance..... no matter what Obama would have done...... was what was needed to wake up the lackluster rethugs opinion of their pathetic candidate..... and would have resulted in this bounce.

    •  Yes I am going to guess half the bounce was (1+ / 0-)

      either teahadists who were going to stay home or write in Ron Paul or vote third party.

      I do believe there might have been some who were going to stay home, maybe some fundies too because he is Mormon and they think that is a cult.

      And then the other half of the bounce might have been some right leaning INdependents who were considering not voting but now will vote for Mittens because he came off as moderate and not batshit crazy in the debate.
