Then they called Romney every name in the book---saying Romney was a felon. That didn't work.
Then came debate night---where Romney commanded the stage up against Ohaha's feeble, dog-eared appearance.
Desperate post-debate Obamatons then launched a united "Romney is a liar" jihad. That didn't work.
Now the Ohoho's are resorting to using ads w/ Big Bird.....and a trashman.
Guess what? That ain't gonna work, either.
Gallup reported Romney scored the biggest debate win in US political history.
Of those who watched, 72% picked Mitt Romney as the winner, while only 20% thought Obama won. That''s the biggest win in history, exceeding even Bill Clinton's 42% advantage in his townhall over GHWB (where Bush checked his watch).
The numbers on Romney/ Obama reflect those of snap opinion polls. According to Gallup, Republicans gave him a 95% win over Obama, Independents picked him, 70%-19%, and even Democrats thought Romney won, 49%-39%.
But wait----does that really matter? Yes, Gallup notes that in the three days following the debate, Romney erased a 5% deficit among registered voters to tie Obama, 47%-47%.
Now those expecting Obama to do much better in the second debate may be disappointed----b/c the second debate is a townhall, which stifles Obama's ability to attack. Audiences want candidates to focus on them and their questions; not on opponents. They also expect a more cordial, personal response----not an unfriendly zinger.
One more thing: This is Day Six since the first presidential debate wrapped, and some cable shows are still opening w/ debate chat, emphasizing Obama's startling flopola.
That kind of staying power bodes well for Romney----could be a first in today's revolving news cycles.
