Gallup Poll Has Election a Tie Between Romney and Obama, Was +5 for Obama Predebate


Who says that debates do not change the polls? Those pundits who made such comments before the Romney-Obama ‘Duel in Denver’ debate are eating their words today. The Gallup poll has the race dead even at 47% a piece.

Gallup now has it a tie between Romney and Obama, following the debate. Prior to the debate, the Gallup poll had Obama ahead by a +5. How bad was it for Obama in the debate? Not only did Republicans and Independents overwhelmingly believe that Romney mopped the floor with Obama, but a majority of Democrats thought Romney won as well. OUCH!

      We’ve got the debate for Ryan and Biden coming up which Biden probably won’t even know why he’s there. Same thing is true for Obama. Two lying, non-functional, disasters,who have done nothing for our country but caused monumental and grief.

      The September polls were sooooo biased towards Democrats that the pollsters had to start making adjustments.

      If the Biden/Ryan debate is HALF as entertaining as the Zero/Romney debate, I’m going to pop some popcorn and watch it over and over :)

      BTW, I’m adding one of the best posts I’ve seen regarding why Zero bombed out so badly at the debate minus his almighty teleprompter. Was on Daily Mail UK. I think this lovely post should be framed for posterity:
