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. :)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
