Poll: Apparent Slide for Obama Following Debate
nationaljournal.com ^ | 10/05/2012 | Steven Shepard

A new poll shows a slight change in the presidential race immediately following Wednesday night's debate in Denver, with a 4-point lead for President Obama the day before the debate becoming a 1-point deficit the day after his uninspiring peformance.

On Tuesday, the Washington, D.C.

-based Clarus Research Group surveyed 590 likely voters and found Obama leading Mitt Romney, 49 percent to 45 percent. On Thursday, Clarus found, in an identical number of interviews, that Romney had inched ahead by 1 point, 47 percent to 46 percent.

Obama's support slipped by 3 points and Romney's ticked up by 2 points. Because the margin of error for each survey is plus-or-minus 4 percentage points, the change between the two polls is not statistically significant. Additionally, conducting a poll only in one day can introduce additional sources of error.

The polls were conducted via live telephone interviews with landline and cell phone respondents. When both surveys are combined, Obama leads by 2 points, 48 percent to 46 percent.

Krauthammer expected a “1-2 point move.” Even he underestimated the epic fail.

Polls were already starting to move Romney’s way pre-debate. Nice to see the trend accelerate after Obama’s epic fail.

Fingers crossed that the momentum continues to shift Romney’s and people firm up their belief that the Kenyan really isn’t up for a second term.

Unfortunately, they only go into hiding for a generation. The a new bunch of young skulls full of mush grow up and become idealistic, utopian Dupes and Fellow Travelers in their 20s and we start all over again. Each new generation seems to ratchet us toward tyranny and we never step back. How do we raise a generation of freedom- and liberty-loving? Maybe the only solution is to only send our kids to Hillsdale College.

Barack will come out of the closet either right before or right after the election (depending on what the focus groups tell him) and divorce Michelle.
