Mitt Romney leads President Obama in national polls, and the president is approaching his all-time low in the RealClearPolitics average. Romney leads in some key swing states (e.g., Florida, Colorado and North Carolina) and has largely erased the deficit in others (Ohio, Virginia, Nevada). His approval rating (the likability rating so many liberals have obsessed about) is in positive territory; the gap between the two candidates approval ratings has all but disappeared.
Obama is below 60 on Intrade. Crowds for Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) are swelling in battleground states like Ohio. The Associated Press reported:
The crowds tell the story. As Election Day nears, Mitt Romney is drawing large and excited throngs. Look to dusty Iowa cornfields, rain-soaked Virginia parks, the muddy fields of the Shelby County Fairgrounds, where a crowd of 9,500 almost half of this western Ohio town gathered among the barns and stables on a frigid October evening this week to glimpse the Republican presidential contender. . . . He drew an estimated 12,000 people to a central Florida rally last weekend, 1,200 to an Iowa town of just 1,000, and several hundred more to Newport News, Va., under heavy October rain.
People wonder why it is Im so confident were going to win. Im confident because I see you here on a day like this. This is unbelievable, Romney said...

Agreed. I just hope Mitt is prepared to respond to Barry’s lies and dirty tricks on Tuesday night. Barry has been humiliated. Marxist dictators don’t take humiliation very well. Barry will be going all out to get his revenge.
Yup, foaming at the lips, spewing rabid lies, etc.
After Bidens’ perfomance on Thursday, I think the folks they are trying to woo will be completely lost to the ‘rats if Smokes goes the same route as Plugs. That show didn’t play well at all to anyone other than the uber-left base.
Hopefully, he’ll go the other way looking for sympathy and tell the audience how tough it has been for them, and him, over the past four years. Keyword for “The Debate Drinking Game” will be BUSH.
Nixon and McGovern never debated.
Reagan: 49 States
Mondull: 1 States (plus D.C.)
My memory was incorrect: Nixon did not debate McGovern.
I think Obama is going to have a tough time attacking Romney very much at all. The format (town hall) just isn’t conducive to back and forth between the candidates as one is always responding to an audience questioner. Therefore one responds with eye contact and discussion with the questioner, not one’s opponent. Will be very interesting to see how this debate pans out, as it really isn’t much of a debate as it is a question and answer session with the audience. Another question is how much will Candy Crowley, the “moderator” interfere with the flow of questions and answers.
