IBD/TIPP just came out with a their 5 day tracker featuring 2 days of post-debate sampling and the POTUS has moved up by two from a tie yesterday:  Obama 46.5% | Romney 44.8%

Among many bullet points Obama cut into Romney’s lead among male voters to just 2 pts, down from a 5 pt deficit in two days.   Self identified "Conservatives" have declined from a 73% solid block to a 69% solid block, which may just be noise.  

O and R are deadlocked among those who identify as well off as well as catholics.

IBD/TIPP nicely includes a geographic breakdown so we can follow up on KOS' contention of the other day that the South is pulling down national numbers.   Unlike the outlying Gallup poll, this one did not show quite as wide a divide but it is consistant.

*Fixed, per Grubber:

Northeast O +15%
Midwest O +1%
South R +5%
West O +4%

I'm not sure how those numbers net us only a 2% lead but it cements the notion that Texappalachabama is "skewing" the nationals big time.   Since we seem to be holding tough it  North Floginia this means their is hope for the rest of the Union.

UPDATE: Can't seem to get the link feature to work (conspiracy) so heres the url:

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.
