    Mitt's post-debate bump was a few points - but he was never able to take the lead in any of the mainstream credible polls.
    And today President Obama has jumped from a three point lead to a five point lead in the Gallup poll.

    Now that the tracking polls are including days affected by the strong jobs report - President Obama is gaining support and Romney is falling behind.

    I supect that the "bump/lead" was largely a media created illusion.

    The illusion of a Romney "surge" was created by the Repub owned and operated junk pollsters (Rassmussen Gravis WeAskAmerica) and the silly MSM.

    There was a legitimate bump of 2-3 points - but Romney still trailed Obama.
    And now Romney is falling back.

    bostonsam saidOh it's you again. These are the facts:

    Not only did Romney win the debate last week, but he won by a huge, record setting landslide.

    Romney Posts Historic Win in Debate

    This has me VERY VERY worried (these numbers were from BEFORE the disastrous debate last week):

    By JAMES HOHMANN | 10/8/12 5:01 AM EDT

    ORLANDO, Fla. — President Barack Obama has a worsening enthusiasm problem.

    A new POLITICO/George Washington University Battleground Tracking Poll of likely voters shows Obama ahead of Mitt Romney 49 percent to 48 percent nationally, a statistical tie and a percentage point closer than a week ago.

    The head-to-head numbers have held remarkably steady through the past three weeks, but there’s been a notable shift of intensity from the Democrats to the Republicans since the party conventions over a month ago. Most of the poll’s calls were made before Romney’s strong performance at the first presidential debate in Denver.

    Only 73 percent who support Obama say they are “extremely likely” to vote, compared to 86 percent who back Romney. Likewise, 84 percent of Republicans say they are extremely likely to vote, compared to 76 percent of Democrats.

    Among those extremely likely to vote, Romney actually leads Obama 52 percent to 46 percent. That’s up from a 2-point lead last week. Obama led 50 percent to 47 percent among this group three weeks ago.

    Poor Southbeach=BostonSam.
    You're repeatedly posting that little poll (that still shows Obama leading Romney) - in a desperate attempt to try to distract from the devastating new polls that came out today showing President Obama gaining strength and Romney falling back.

    It's very bad news for you Repubs.

    It's NEW. Didn't you even bother to read it? Or are you that fragile that it would just shatter your mental "stability" as it were.

    BTW: Am I also "Blake7" and "Firebanned" and "scalfitness" as well? Because your other radical extreme leftist friends on here believe that to be the case too.




    LOL
    I did read it, Southbeach.
    The bottom line is that it's yet another poll that shows Obama is leading Romney.

    I am concerned about your mental stability, SB.
    Are you straight up lying about the fact that you're Southbeach - pretending to be someone else - or do you really believe that you're a whole different person?

    This dishonest attempt to be someone you're not has gotten really creepy.

    Here's a "sane" and sobering poll for you and your fellow Repubs, Southbeach.

    President Obama's job approval rating jumped up three points today - to 51%.

    President Obama has his Department of Justice investigating Gallup. And miraculously as soon as that was announced, our President's Gallup poll numbers in the "approve/disapprove" and "3 day average tracking poll" swung wildly in favor of President Obama.

    He cheapens himself and the office when he does stuff like this. I really don't believe it was his idea, I think he is getting bad advice.



    LOL
    You're growing progressively more loony and disreputable, Southbeach.
    Citing nutty far-right conspiracy theories like this just shows how non-credible your "thinking" is.

    I have heard that the shift of Independent likely voters has shifted towards Romney by 16% since the debate. icon_wink.gif There is a quiet confidence about the November shocker. You can shove the polls up your ass because I know that Romney/Ryan are going to win Wisconsin! As Wisconsin goes, so goes the White House.

    You and Southbeach don't sound quietly confident.
    You sound threatened.

    And the wisdom of predicting that blue state WI will turn red for Romney is rather sketchy.

    It all started back when Gov Walker was elected. Our state has shifted from blue to red because of terrible democrat policies and administration that left our state in big trouble. Walker was elected because he promised to clean it up. As a matter of fact democrats were voted out of our state assembly and state senate for the same reasons. Walker has since cleaned up alot of the mess the previous administration left behind. That win along with the Ryan nomination for VP will carry over to November for the Romney/Ryan ticket. Thats why democrats spent millions of dollars to recall Walker and his agenda. His agenda works, thats why democrats hate it, thats why Obama wasnt here supporting the unionistas, and thats why he wont win Wisconsin in November. Its not threatening at all. Its simply the silent majority that will turn out again and support a ticket that promises to do what they say.

    When the election is over - we'll see if your prediction was correct.

    FYI - no Repub has won Wisconsin since Reagan in 1984 - and Mitt is no Ronald Reagan.
    To say the least.

    People got pretty damned excited watching Romney, taking charge of the debate.
    So, naturally, a lot of people gave him a second look.

    Then, every news source trumpeted the fact that Romney lied his ass off, throughout the debate.

    So, now we're back where we were, with our President coasting to an easy win.

    Governor Walker survived a recall effort for one reason, only:
    MONEY.
    Many hundreds of thousands of dollars, spent on pro Walker TV ads, came from out of state, from billionaire Republicans, like the Koch brothers.
    They are not prepared to spend that amount of money in every swing state, in a Presidential election.
    Wisconsin will be dark blue, on election day.
    I guarantee it.
