The CNN poll is a huge relief. It started only on Friday but carried the rest of the way through. 51-47 Obama in Ohio!!!!
Obama's approval is back up to 53% in Gallup today YAYYYYYY
I told you as Thursday and Friday leave, the polls will equilibrate back to Obama's favorable numbers before the debate; RCP and TPM tracker will recover back upwards (give it time and keep in mind they have a lot of Rassussmen/Gravitas). The race was a dead tie briefly. There is no sugarcoating that WAS a bad thing for Obama and Obama clearly made mistakes, but when you factor in sample bias in the Republican polls and Pew Romney did not take the lead. However, things are quickly bouncing back up.
Please continue to be patient. Biden's debate and the new context of jobs numbers, rapid push back, and powerful ads will bring us back into the striking distance.
Patience is a virtue. The Thursday-Friday lag is starting to subside.
