In polls in the last 2 days, President Obama has decidedly ended Gov. Romney's two weeks of momentum, and has grabbed the ball back. Talking Points Memo CVOTER (+5 Obama) from 10/7-10/13 it was Romney 49-46 from 10/17-10/23 it's Obama 49-47 Gallup (LV) (+4 Obama) 10/14-20 Romney 52-45 10/17-23 Romney 50-47 Gallup (RV) (+4 O) 10/14-20 Romney 49-46 10/17-23 Obama 48-47 PPP (+4 O) 10/12-14 Romney 50-46 10/19-23 Romney 48 Obama 48 Rasmussen (+2 Romney) 10/18-20 Romney 49-47 10/21-23 Romney 50-46 RAND (+2 O) 10/20 Obama 48-46 10/23 Obama 49-45 Reuters/Ipsos (+2 O) 10/8-12 Romney 46-45 10/19-23 Obama 47-46 IBD/TIPP (+3 O) 10/12-17 tied at 46 10/18-23 Obama 47-44 That's a 2.75% shift in just 2 days of polling, while three quarters of those polls also include days leading up to the debate, which were favorable for Romney. Gone is the 7-point lead from Gallup. It won't be until well into the weekend that we have a clearer view of the effect of this bump for Obama after his third debate, but it is clear now that the 2nd debate slowed the Romney momentum marginally, while the 3rd debate appears to show the beginning of a momentum swing back towards the President. My prediction? I think the national polls, which come out to a tie at the moment, all of which are within the margin of error, will pretty much stay that way now, with one poll after another showing a tie, or Obama up by 2, or Romney up by 2. From here on in, the winner will be the guy with the best ground game.
