    The polls shifted towards Obama after the Democratic convention, then tightened a little, then shifted considerably in Obama's direction after the 47% thing.  But now after the debate the polls are starting to show movement towards Romney.  So the electorate can obviously shift.  The important thing is, in a race that is fairly close, who has the momentum going into election day.  The President had it and had a chance to put Romney away but instead he let him get off the mat.  So his job from here on out is to knock Romney back on his ass.  And finish him.

    •  Obama has lead all year. Full stop. (2+ / 0-)

      There's a difference between poll fluctuations and a genuine, statistically significant, sustained lead-change for the challenger.

      McCain was polling at over 270 EVs just after he picked Palin.  Romney hasn't gotten near that all year.  Romney has never lead in the Electoral College and it defies credulity to think that he will now.

      Have you googled Romney today?
