    In polling up to 10/28, before the storm event: Gallup released to day the favorability index results which show Obama at 62% with Romney at 55% in their scale.

    Obama Ahead in 10-Point Favorability Measure, 62% to 55%

    The momentum before the stop was being stopped: In part from Colin Powell endorsing Obama, in part from the Christ-Centered Rapists at GOP, and in part from the Romney recourse to the frenzied repeat of the lies from the Romney Bombastic Ads! Ryan was kept out of sight while the campaign trended moderate.

    Even the Gallup Tracking swings were ebbing back toward an even race.

    Now this is additional job-approval evidence, and in the context of the approvable economic data now being released this week! GDP last week was 2% after discounting 0.4% from the drought! Now there is the storm event, punctuating that. Even CNBC has touted Home Depot as a likely winner in weeks to come!

    There's a systemic problem with tracking polls. They tend to create an initial population, that doesn't change enough. I participated in a Zogby tracking poll in 2004, and was polled about twice a month. That alone should be an indicator as to why Rassmussen and Gallup shouldn't be taken all that seriously. They no longer use true randomness, and that will bias their results.
