Virginia: Obama 51 (50)  Romney 46 (46)
Wisconsin: Obama 50 (51) Romney 47 (45)
Colorado: Romney 48 (47) Obama 47 (48)

(Previous results from mid-Sept in brackets)


Fantastic result in Virginia.  The other two are meh, but not horrible.  Wisconsin seems to always react to events and then fall back in line.  Colorado has swung wildly this election season-not a lot of consistent polling there...

Digging a bit deeper, none of the samples are tilted significantly towards President Obama...

Colorado:  Rep 29-27
Virginia:    Dem 31-28
Wisconsin: Dem 31-27

Main theme seems to be that impressions of Romney inched up following the debate, but not a lot of voters changed their minds in the horserace,,,


Poll in the field Oct 4-9-Thursday through Tuesday.  So it includes the two awful days after the debate and does not include any pre-debate samples.  All things considering, these are nice results, especially when taken with the Marist polls.

SO TAKE A DEEP BREATH!  The state polling has generally held up well, and we've got some good results now from excellent pollsters.  Romney hasn't broken ahead in any key states.  The best he can claim is a dead heat in Florida and Colorado.

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.
