    ‘Too late’ depends on one’s partisan perspective, of course.

    But the idea that early voters who voted for Obama would come to ‘regret’ their votes after the last two debates is nonsense, early voters are more motivated and partisan; they would have voted for the president regardless his debate performance.

    I suspect the election is still undecided.

    I think Obama still has a modest margin over Mitt, but there's still time for another shocking revelation to come along that might tip the balance one way or the other.

    No. :lol: The early voter angle is frankly laughable. CCJ nailed that one on the nose on his post below. It will come down to what voters decide on election day and the early voting might swing things a point at most.

    Right now I agree with edictec that right now Obama would probably still pull of a narrow win, but if we accept your postulate: "Romney mops the floor with Obama over the next two debates" then Obama will get destroyed. All Obama's leads in the swing states have been pretty much wiped out. One more Romney victory and it will be very difficult for Obama to win this.

    The early voting in Ohio still had enough to mull over. Fast & Furious, Solyndra and Cronyism, Benghazi debacle, White House Leaks. Although the state of Ohio is a prominent Union State, the turning of the back on Wisconsin from Obama might have led some to think twice before marking that ballot.

    The Independents most likely did not send those ballots in, waiting for the debates and more info on the Congressional Hearings and more from Romney in the debates. Ohio still much in play.
