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