Gallup Poll: Mitt Romney Narrows Vote Gap After Historic Debate Win

Romney Narrows Vote Gap After Historic Debate Win

Here's an example of why people shouldn't freak out, Mitt Romney clearly won the debate last week on style. But he was roughly five points down from the President going and trailing in all of the swing States, he's still trailing in all of the swing States, at least the big ones, New Hampshire and West Virginia might be. Exceptions but they are both small States and now after a debate that Mitt clearly won, according to Gallup an Independent poll, that both Democrats and Republicans trust, President Obama still has a lead. The debate wasn't earth shattering as far as changing who has the advantage in the election, it just got Mitt back in the game. The effects of the debate, are similar to the first Kerry-Bush debate in 2004 and the first Mondale-Reagan debate in 1984, where the challengers were clearly down going in and were still down when. They left and the President left with a small lead but the challenger being back in the race.
