I think Romney won the election on the night of the first debate.
Up to that point Obama had spent $600 million trying to pain Rommney as this evil, uncring, unreachable, unfeeling goblin who was not fit for the Presidency and whom people should run away from.
Then 70-80 million people saw him with their own eyes and saw that he was articluate, that he has a well thought out plan to get us out of this mess, that he had a sense of humor, and that he cared deeply about America. That night they were able to contrast him directly with Obama without any political ads and they saw Obama as a man with no plan, who really did not like being on that stage, and who was the one who was distant. They had the opportunity for the first real time to compare the two, one against the other, and use their own good sense, intellect and judgement.
And a whole bunch of them chose that night.
Every other debate and the night when they both spoke at the Catholic charity dinner, Romney has done nothing bu strengthen this image of himself, which is the antedote to the Obama attack ads.
As a result, the polls swung to Romney and have stayed there ever since.
Obama’s entire campaign was a campaign of negativity against Romney. He cannot run on his economic record. it is abysmal. He has not set forth any kind of clear, detaile dplan for the furutre...so we must presume it is a repeat of what he has done so far...and it will be. So, when the main pillar of his campaign came down...his campaign came down.

I agree..Obama will be remembered for totally failing on the 1st debate..last night’s debate since it was foreign policy, less people watched..but what they did see last night was Mitt Romney prepared to be President..a man who looks Presidential..meanwhile Obama looked like a guy who is about to be fired and is begging to keep his job.
