Posted on 10/14/2012 10:37:07 PM PDT by Arthurio
A new PPP poll in Florida underscores the huge surge Mitt Romney has made in just a week since his widely acknowledgd debate win over President Barack Obama.
Romney gained 5 points over the last three weeks and now leads President Obama 49-48, after trailing 50-46 in late September, the Tampa Bay Times reported Sunday.
"The shift in the race is largely attributable to independent voters shifting their preferences. Where before Obama had a 51-40 advantage with them, now Romney's taken the lead by a 51/43 spread. When it comes to the biggest issue in the election, the economy, Romney's edge over Obama expands to 51/46 on who voters trust more," PPP reported in a release Sunday.
"Romney and Obama's images have headed in difference directions since the Presidential debate. Voters have warmed up to Romney a good bit, going from giving him a negative favorability rating at 44/51 to a positive one at 50/47. Meanwhile Obama's approval numbers have gone the other way. Where before he was on positive ground with 51% of voters approving of him to 47% who disapproved, now he's in slightly negative territory at 48/50.

As an aside, I would personally love to see Romney allow Obama to have a teleprompter up on Stage, while "graciously" refusing one for himself.
HARK...THE SHEEPLES AWAKEN....
creating a MASSIVE TSUNAMI...
which will sweep Obama and his minions into the DUSTBIN OF HISTORY...
For those in Rio Linda...here's what we are seeing:
....a Sandman with feet of clay.
I think what Romney was able to do during the debate was negate Obamas defining of him as an out of touch elitist. He was powerful, but not in a rude way like Biden. This is why R got such a boost. It’s not because he “won”.
People want to like Romney. I use youtube a lot, and for months every other ad was how R was a rich, mean, creep - that seeps in. When they saw Romney actually talk, they realized he is a nice, yet effective, guy. I think that actually shocked some folks.
I think what the MSNBC hosts were angry about after the debate was that Obama let Romney redefine himself - they kept saying O let R get away with lying, but what they weren’t saying was the lie was how dare Romney come off as a smart, good, guy, when he’s a pubbie, can’t possibly be anything but mean and stupid. How infuriating for Chris Matthews.
But I thought Smilin’ Joe Biden had helped the Obama campaign regain the momentum. The Democrat msm was trying to sell that load of garbage all weekend.
Even these boobs are starting to desperately get polling in line with reality. Next they’ll say Romney has gained the lead in FL, then 1day befor the election, OH
