    the sense that Romney's horrid campaign would never stop. Making a fool of himself overseas, Todd Akin, Eastwood's chair, the stellar DNC, Romney politicizing Libya, 47%. All of these things gave Obama momentum and stopped the race from reaching equilibrium, which was more or less a tie in the popular vote with Obama leading in the EC. The debate was such a sharp change that it immediately brought the race back to equilibrium, and it has stayed there since. Anyone still with Obama now is not going to desert him, period.
