Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

All clear folks. Here is my synopsis of the recent polling news.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

PPP said that Obama's numbers on Saturday recovered back to pre-debate levels.

PPP's Virginia poll showed Obama still leading against Romney by a reasonable margin. Obama's job approval has remained the same in that same PPP poll in Virginia at 50-48 after debate. Gallup's numbers have flatlined at Obama still leading against Romney 49-46. Reuters showed an uptick in RV today. Reuters polls still have Obama leading Romney by the same margin. Obama was leading in a post debate poll in Colorado of 47-43. Obama's support among independents has not changed even though they say Romney won the debate decisively. Hispanics are still voting for Obama in LANDSLIDE margins bigger than those of 2008. Hispanics will still put Obama over the top in the key states.

There are have always been and still are few undecided voters. Focus group polls showed undecided women moving to Obama strongly. Teacherken wrote about that a few days back. Undecided voters who made up their mind after the first debate split between Obama and Romney evenly.

Even though Romney won the debate, people were STILL not convinced to vote for him largely.

Taking into consideration everything including the heaven-sending jobs report, the bounce and worst are OVER.

We have the rest of October to turn back the news cycles and make the pendulum move back towards squishing Romney and the republicans.

It is not over until it is over. :)
