Fox News poll: Romney erases
Obama's lead nationally after first debate

Fox News, by Dana Blanton

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 10/10/2012 7:52:04 PM

Mitt Romney now holds a narrow advantage over Barack Obama in the race for the White House -- 46 percent to 45 percent, if the election were held today, according to a Fox News national poll of likely voters released Wednesday. That’s a six-point turnaround and a three-point “debate bounce” for Romney. Before the first presidential debate in Denver last Wednesday, Romney had 43 percent to Obama’s 48 percent (September 24-26, 2012). Romney’s edge comes mainly from independents, white voters and men. Just over half of men (51 percent) back Romney now

Comments:
Poll conducted Oct. 7-9.

If it was just a poll or two I might not think twice about these developments but it seems to be all the polls. Stay the course and remain enthusiastic. Here's hoping Ryan will do well tomorrow night and hopefully the Libya fiasco will start to register with the American public and remind them of obama's ineptitude.

I couldn't watch the first debate because I was dubious. But I can't imagine that Ryan can't out debate Uncle Joe. With half his brain tied behind his back (sorry Rush).

Obama was always one speech away from defeat. All it took was a little competition and no teleprompter.

What #4 said. IMHO, the reason the "polls" now show Romney in the lead is because he was ALWAYS in the lead, at least since the Convention. FNC has the worst polls for Mitt Romney on cable, so it must've been really painful for whoever does their "polling" to admit he is "now" leading, After Paul Ryan destroys little Joey tonight, we'll see what happens.

I don't believe any polls. Each media outlet has a vested interest in keeping this election close. The money spent on ads and consultants is a money producer and has nothing to do with WE folk....

Focus on November 6th -- so WE the people can dump the Chicago mob....

The fix is in. As long as Biden remembers to zip up his fly, he WILL deliver himself by making an incredibly witty rejoinder to Ryan, a la Bentzen's "You're no Jack Kennedy". The media will find some kind of half-witty remark to tout from the rooftops, and pronounce the Obama campaign back on track to victory. Just you watch.

The actual numbers may not be certain but the strong trend to Romney IS!

Clearly, Romney wiped the floors with BO and BO's campaign excuses sound childish and idiotic. The debate showed a strong, friendly, thoughtful leader who listened to his opponent and adapted his answers and focus based on the questions and the flow of the debate; Romney vs. a petulant, stumbling and robotic ideologue who repeated the same thing over and over, even when he had been made to look silly the first couple times he said it; BO.

With the state of the world foreign policy has become as toxic to BO as the economy so it is hard to believe that BO will do any better in future debates. If BO's strategy is to be not so nice, he is going to have a problem with Romney. Romney is Mr. Cool and went through Republican debates where several candidates ganged up on him. He will have no trouble making BO look foolish and that will make BO's anger look without grounds, like a guy with anger management problems.

BO chose this path long ago when he decided to duck his record. His campaign has been focused on lies, distortions , and propaganda. The media has gleefully assisted. But the convention and debates are opportunities for Romney to directly address the electorate and speak the truth. That truth is an anathema to BO and dems. They have no counter for it. There is no shield to protect them from it.

And the polls show it. That's why dems are in a panic. BO is their candidate and there is nothing they can do about it.

If the numbers in all of these recent polls, including this one, are anywhere near correct, it just goes to show that there is still a large percentage of voters in this country that are simply stupid. They have had to heard at least some of the lies and distortions given out by the DNC and the Obozo crowd, but choose to ignore them. I guess that they just don't believe their own lying eyes. It's a sad day in Black Rock.

The change in polls is because Obama did not overwhelm the masses with tingles of hope and change. It would make me feel better if people are changing their mind because they now realize that we have been lied to on numerous occasions about terrorist attacks on our nation. It is not only that this administration is completely incompetent, but that they are actually sympathetic to the terrorist who wish us all dead.

A couple of days ago, a poster here related how the black people he/she sees regularly seemed to be carrying a sense of shame after the debate. The image that created still hasn't left me. It highlights what 68 million people saw the night Obama revealed his character of laziness, ignorance, and entitlement. Since then, a lot more people have seen his performance and realized that it wasn't a bad night for him, it was the real Obama. Polls are finally reflecting what we saw.

#19, that was me who noticed the blacks I encountered - check-out clerks, co-workers and so forth - seeming to sort of hang their heads and seem ashamed the day after the debate. And this was certainly natural because they could not have been prouder the day after O was elected. And I was actually very happy for them when he was elected. I thought his election could be, in the long run, a big step toward healing this nation and the descendents of its slaves from the results of slavery (not that I had wanted him elected!). But now it's time for them to wake up and get real, and these in-your-face debates are making at least a small dent in all their detachment from reality.

Zimbabwe´s presidential election was a "huge farce", PM Morgan Tsvangirai has said, alleging vote-rigging by rival President Robert Mugabe´s camp. At a news conference, Mr Tsvangirai said that Wednesday´s poll was "null and void". The largest observer group earlier said up to a million people were prevented from voting. Mr Mugabe´s party - which is claiming a victory - denied the accusations, saying the voting went smoothly. The head of the African Union observer mission, former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo, said his initial assessment was that the vote was free and fair. Other regional observers praised

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama´s decision to delay implementation of part of his healthcare reform law will cost $12 billion and leave a million fewer Americans with employer-sponsored health insurance in 2014, congressional researchers said Tuesday. The report by the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office is the first authoritative estimate of the human and fiscal cost from the administration´s unexpected one-year delay announced July 2 of the employer mandate - a requirement for larger businesses to provide health coverage for their workers or pay a penalty. The analysts said the delay will add to the cost of "Obamacare´s" insurance-coverage

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that

Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.
