  •  no evidence of a major "game-changer" yet... (2+ / 0-)

    ...after five full days, and with some additional time and results still needed to give a better assessment, there is still no major evidence that the debate was a "game-changer" in the sense of Mittch-A-Sketch Romney turning the race on its head.

    It appears that he did succeed at making the polls closer. There's some evidence that he's gained in some key swing states and even gone a little ahead in some.

    However, with the exception of one poll showing him with a four-point national lead, there is still no evidence that the debate itself turned things around.

    What has happened is what most people all along have been saying, including the President and his representatives...the race has gotten closer.

    It's still possible that the debate did, in fact have a dramatic affect and turned things around making Romney the favorite to win...but that evidence has not yet displayed itself.
