Is Arizona a swing state? Looks like it!

It may very well be, if a new poll from the Behavioral Research Center/Rocky Mountain Poll is to be believed, which shows Obama leading Romney 42% to 40% among registered voters. The poll sampled 511 registered voters between October 4 and October 10 and had a margin of error of 4.4%, so the two-point lead for Obama is within the poll's margin of error.

Even CNN, which is in the tank for Romney, was forced to note this poll on its Political Ticker. Despite the fact that he wanted to dismiss this poll as an outlier, Nate Silver mentioned the fact that this poll did Spanish-language interviews on his Twitter page, and he noted, "There's some evidence that polls which don't conduct Spanish-language interviews lowball Dem vote among Hispanics."

Speaking of Nate Silver, Obama has gained ground in Silver's electoral college forecast!

Obama's chances of winning at least 270 electoral votes has increased to 62.9% from 61.1% yesterday, per Nate Silver's model. That represents a 1.8% increase for Obama in the FiveThirtyEight electoral vote model since yesterday.

I'm starting to feel the "Obama comeback" coming...let's vote, and get out the vote, for President Obama!

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.
