    It was not! The effect of the debate in the polls did not take until the day after that, when the "Obama doesn't want the job/Romney reignites candidacy" meme had become baked. Post debate day was not an immediate tragic day, so it falling off is not as bad as you think.

      I do remember the talk was that it took a day of watercooler/tavern talk, of reading newspapers after work, and watching the evening news reports before people really formed strong opinions about the debate.  The thursday poll didn't change much.  I think last Friday was the worst day.  Of course, if it gets worse tomorrow.....
