We will know if this debate had any impact starting today. If the polls don’t move in Romney’s favor after the thumping he gave Obama in the first debate, then nothing will change the trajectory of this election. As of this minute, there is not one single poll that shows this debate had any impact at all. Usually if there is a big change Rasmussen will leak the numbers to Drudge early in the morning - as of now I don’t see anything.

If the polls show things moving in Romney's direction, the daily MSM polls will stop. That's how you'll know how Romney really did.

Nah, polling is cheaper than doing real stories, investigative journalism, etc. The commission a poll, pay a few bucks, then talk about it. Kinda like the news version of realityTV. It's too cheap not to do constantly.

We are going to know over the next 72 hours if the debate really had any impact. If we don't see Rasmussen and Gallup move towards Romney after he crushed Hussein in that debate, then nothing is going to move this electorate to toss Obummer out of the White House. I am just not sure people are going to react the way we hope they will. I've had a bad feeling for quite awhile now that people WANT to like Obama too much to let him go. A debate performance, bad as his was, may simply remind a slim majority of Americans how much they like him. Counter intuitive as this is, he might even go up in some polls.

Anyway, we'll know the full story by the end of the weekend when all the polls are out.
