    Washington, D.C. - Today’s data shows the candidates neck-and-neck, both on 45%. This is a two-point drop for Obama, and no change for Romney. We have also included data again today for candidate attributes, and the picture has changed since this past Saturday (10/6). For the last few weeks, Obama has dominated Romney on these characteristics; now, Romney leads not only on ‘A man of faith’ (29% Obama vs. 44% Romney) but also on ‘Can be effective in Washington (34% Obama vs. 38% Romney). In addition, the two candidates are currently within two points of each other on: Tough enough...

    PPP's newest Wisconsin poll finds a big debate bump for Mitt Romney in the state. Two weeks ago he trailed Barack Obama by 7 points there, 52-45. Now he's pulled to within two points, with Obama's lead now just 49-47. There's not much doubt it was Romney's strong debate performance on Wednesday night that's given him this boost. Voters think he won the debate by a 61/25 margin, including a 60/19 margin with independents. 95% of Republicans think Romney won the debate, while only 50% of Democrats claim to think Obama was the winner. Romney's image has seen significant improvement...

    45.5%. What happened? In terms of the numbers, Obama saw a decrease of 4.4% among “Verylikely Obama” voters, an increase of 1.2% among “Likely Obama” voters, and a 1.1% decreasein “Somewhat likely voters”. On the other side, Romney saw a 0.2% decline in “Very likelyRomney voters,” a 1.3% increase among “Somewhat likely Romney” voters and a 2.7% increaseamong “Likely Romney” voters. Overall, it looks as if the debate shifted voters more away fromthe “very likely” category towards center. Interestingly, the percentage of “Undecided” wentfrom 4.3% to 4.8%.

    From the Miami Herald, a little-known detail about Sen. Marco Rubio's personal story: When Marco was 8 years old and living in Las Vegas, the Rubio family attended a Mormon church for a few years. It's a tidbit just released by the publisher of his memoirs. It's also a piece of the history of Rubio, a rising party star and one of the best-known Hispanic officials in the GOP, that comes as a surprise. UPDATE: The incomparable Molly Ball points out via Twitter, "Rubio's cousin Mo Denis is Mormon D state sen. in NV." Rubio is a practicing Catholic. His...
