  •  I still don't get the 18 point swing by women. (1+ / 0-)

    I can understand Romney made a good impression at the debate. I can understand Obama blew it not understanding the impact especially among people who don't want him to be president anyway.  I guess what I don't understand in the swing by women. Romney is offering nothing for women. why would the swing be so immediate and  extreme.  I don't know what to believe. anytime the polls show stability and gains for Obama, suddenly the next day they show extreme gains for Romney. ate they over polling repubs. are they not polling women, Latinos or Blacks or people of Arab descent.  I am not saying all the polls r wrong but the are only as good as the poller. remember when Gallup came out 47-47, then later that day showed Obama up 2. said mischief by an employee. I think I will sware off polls for the duration even 538 because nate does meta data, using all polls so if there is a consistent skew by persons polls, you can't correct for it. you have to use the data. maybe I am rationalizing but when you find immediate extremes, have to raise red flags.

    •  Yep that's baffling (1+ / 0-)

      But almost no one supporting Romney actually gets something positive out of it.  They're all pretty baffling if you try to listen to their reasons.  

      The key thing is that there really are more people who aren't suffering Fox derangement syndrome.  It's a matter of getting enough of them to see that it's worth it to vote for Obama.  Think of how many people don't vote at all every election.  There are always enough votes still on the couch to swing the outcome of any election.  

      Being in charge after the last debate is what counts.
