  •  I agree. I've said in a lot of posts that (6+ / 0-)

    we really shouldn't look at anything until we get to Monday or Tuesday of next week.  I was just commenting on these 1 day samples.  They're actually not that great for Romney on the surface if you factor in the usual GOP lean.  I also agree that the timing was predictable.  WAA did not poll NV because they just did last week and showed Obama up double digits.  That's why Gravis took that one on.  WAA polled Ohio because they hadn't done so in several weeks, whereas Gravis had done so recently.  That's why WAA took on Ohio.  Ras actually did not show much movement for Romney.  We'll see.  Way too early to tell.  Clearly though the momentum Obama had going into the debate was stalled and some of his leads may recede a bit and some states may be more competitive.  However, his aggressive embracing of the jobs report as validation of his policies is a really good start.

    The one thing Obama has to do is defend his own record.  He did not do it in the first debate effectively enough.  With this jobs report, I believe he will feel more free to do so.
