One debate can make a big difference. Right now I say Romney would win this election, probably take Wisconsin, Indiana, Florida and Colorado too.
Its cool to see the battlegrounds switch to the ones the Dems thought they owned.
The RNC convention didn't change much because unfortunately it was held the last big vacation week of summer; before Labor Day and, by the time there was a small bounce it was washed away by the DNC convention held the following week.
This is really the first time Romney was able to reach that amount of the public unfiltered. It helped!
I can’t ever remember a debate where there was such a dramatic impact on the loser’s supporters. Usually, debates will swing a few undecideds one way or the other, but I’ve run into a bunch of committed liberals who are shocked and disheartened by Obama’s debate performance.
In one case, it was a black guy in line in front of me in the store talking loudly on his cell phone, saying, “If I didn’t know ‘bama, I’d be votin’ for that other dude. I’m still rootin’ for ‘bama, but I scared, now.”
I still don’t trust Romney to govern as a conservative, but at least he’s head and shoulders above the empty chair we have right now. ...and I do know Paul Ryan and trust he will be an asset as VP.
