It their LV model and I don’t know what it is.

It’s interesting that even their RV model has Romney up 2 now.

Great... but this doesn’t this set the table for the “Obama Comeback” narrative the media wants to foist upon us?

“He was up 6, but now is only up 2 with the debate factored in!”

If they’re using a rolling average, a portion of it should reflect last night’s debate.

Provided at long last with the ability to examine the real Mitt Romney unfiltered and in his own words, the "undecideds" are now deciding.

He's far from perfect. But he towers above Obama.

It doesn't, and it would be impossible - debate didn't end until 10:30PM Eastern - they certainly wouldn't be calling people at 11PM last night, and there is no way they'd be polling this morning and have the data processed and validated by 1PM.

“R-51%, O-45%”

Better put some ice on it, Axelhead.

And Mr. Gallup may want to increase his security detail. In particular, don’t go for walks alone at night.

I doubt if Romney’s number goes down below 50%, but Obama’s could go up as undecideds make up their mind.

The number of liberals in Chapel Hill that are actively talking about not voting as “a protest to BOTH parties” is growing daily.

No candidate, in the history of Gallup, has ever been above 50% this late and lost.

Game, set, match.

I believe it is a setup. Gallup for the first time gives Romney a sizable lead in the last pre-debate poll? Riiiight.

The same Gallup who selected the “independent” voters who asked questions last night, like the Code Pink lady. And notice so far two of the questioners have already came out and said they have now “decided” to vote for Obama.

Big setup folks and totally predictable. The next few days and the week will be a steady decline of Romney’s lead in the Gallup poll and the breathless narrative will be Obama is surging.

I think all the polls are off some, but look to Rasmussen for at least a decent read. He has the race within a couple points now and we will see what the true post debate swing is from him. My guess is it will be minimal.

This is huge because it pops the balloon in many voters minds about the inevitability of the Obama re-election that had been the narrative for several weeks leading up to the first debate. Gravity is pulling on Obama now, more than anything. Romney is now viewed by most open-minded people in America as competent, caring, energized, capable, in command, not “over-the-top” — in short, he is a viable alternative to the status quo now. Since the status quo sucks, it is a millstone around Obama’s polling numbers.

I agree, I think you will start seeing Romney’s number start hitting 50 in a lot of polls. He must get 51% in order to make sure Ohio isn’t close. These debates are good fodder, but the underpinnings of the election are against Obama and we’ve just been seeing the electorate fall into place.

51? That is game over if true. I think it will increase after this last debate. Romney persuaded more to come over, I believe.

Pure opinion: I think this is ground Obama cannot win back unless he tries an October Surprise.

Here’s why

Obama had been at around 51% before, just a few weeks ago, and Romney gained the upper hand after the debate, but Obama can’t do the same because he’s the incumbent. It’s easy as a challenger to peel voters away from the known quantity if they’re already dissatisfied with his performance, but once they switch, the incumbent has a real hard time getting them back because they already know him. Basically, if you’ve already decided that you’re not going to vote for Barry, you’re already locked in. He can’t pull you back.

I would love to get a peak at Obama’s internal polling. Might put the “When I Was President” context. He may know he is toast.
