Obama’s chances of winning the election have now dropped to 67.9%.
That’s down from 85.7% just 10 days ago.
This is nearly unprecedented, as Gallop shows only two other occasions where a debate was a game changer.
What amazes me is in the weeks leading up to the debate, Romney made gaff after embarrassing gaff, made the 47% remarks, and everyone just seemed to forget about it.
There is still just under a month until the election, and I’m worried that this is more than enough time for Romney to somehow manage to pull off a win.
It’s not the debate, guys. Anyone who watched the debate that was impartial noticed that no one won that debate. What made this debate a game changer was the media reaction afterwards, seconds after it was over both republican and democratic political commentators said that Obama didn’t do a stellar job. They cried and complained, so much, and with such collaboration, that the millions of viewers lost confidence in the president. If you didn’t notice that, then I hope you see it now, make your own opinion.
That is not the point.
The point is that Romney is rapidly moving ahead in the polls and it doesn’t matter if it was because of the debate or because of the media, the fact of the matter is that he is.
Everyone who doesn’t want to see a Romney presidency needs to make sure they get their ass to the polls on election day. I think after the strong polling last month everyone started to get just a little too complacent.
