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.


Finally starting to feel relief now that Thursday and Friday are falling out of the picture?

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.
