Ugh. Didn’t expect to see that. figured it would hang pretty much at 49-47. Of course with rounding, we might still see there with statistical noise. It definitely looks like the storm is helping Obama, sadly. He must have had two good days since his big tour. With the job numbers today, hopefully we see it open back up to a couple points. The focus is back on the crappy job environment as of 8:30 this morning.
What’s weird is Obama has hardly gained, it it loss from Romney. Seems like they need to sharpen their message again and not try to coast to victory.
Romney gained when he was able to present himself unfiltered. Sandy was a godsend for Obama (although a real disaster for everyone else). It made Romney invisible and gave Obama a chance to be “our leader” during crisis. It took every other story off the table the week leading to the election, most of which helped Mitt.
The shaky undecideds have tilted back some towards Obama as a result.
