It's a bit early yet to be crowing about the effects of this week's Wednesday Nite Massacre in Denver, as polls won't fully reflect the bloodbath for about a week - but early indications are encouraging:

STATE Obama Romney Gary Johnson Undecided GOP/DEM/IND
OHIO 46% 47% 1% 6% 34/38/28
FLORIDA 46% 49% 1% 4% 38/33/29
VIRGINIA 45% 48% 2% 5% 34/32/34

Romney leading now in all 3 of these key swing states.

Ahhhh, but you want to crow using a poll (the right wing We Ask America) that reflects your candidate in the best possible light.

Guess the polls leading up to the debate don't count. Rasmussen is completely independent and isn't supported by a political ideology like We Ask America.

Quite.

I have the clip of Chris Matthews' histrionic meltdown on click-to-play, ready to roll every time I need a laugh. Gets funnier every time I play it.

"Mitt Romney didn’t just beat Obama on Wednesday night. He also beat the liberal media. So great was his performance that liberal journalists simply had to concede the President’s defeat – a humiliation for an industry that has spent several years setting Obama up as the wisest, most eloquent, most popular politician since FDR. No longer can Romney be dismissed with a gag about a dog strapped to the roof of his car. This uptight rich guy could be the next President of the United States."

Romney didn't say that.

He said he would end the federal subsidy for PBS.

There's a difference.

And you clowns don't care. None of you have any principles, at all. You are like your candidate, not really worthy of consideration.
I agree with you Joe. BO appeared dazed in debate because he didn't know which Romney policy stance to combat; his on the record policy, or his policy du jour... just conjured up that night.

Big bird can take care of himself. He will do just fine in the commercial world. Oh wait... He already does. All those Big bird toys, lunch boxes, and other paraphernalia seem to do just fine. Romney summed it up very well. Is it worth borrowing money from China just to keep Big Bird in his nest. Time for the bird to fly on his own.

The nice thing about these early polls is that we already know they are somewhat skewed to the liberal viewpoint. The reason being that those of us that work for a living to support all those who sit at home answering poll phone calls, just don't have the time to talk to the pollsters.

Nice thing about early polls is when the results don't favor the conservatives, terms like "somewhat skewed" are used to protect their flank.

Reality is the debate showed no bump in favor of Willard.

in one night the entire dynamic of the election has changed, you can feel the desperation in the democratic party, i fully expect Romney to now put the hammer down and start spending his war chest and hit Obama on his utter failure of a presidency.

just think about it, Obama is cheering 7.8 per cent unemployment like it is an accomplishment, this is a disgrace.

his green jobs programs are a disgrace,

the stimulus was a disgrace,

his foreign policy is a disgrace,

his administration is buried in scandals from fast and furious, to sebelius, to the cronyism, the solyndra's, the libya coverup,

the momentum has changed, and things are looking good on the right.

just goes to show how low expectations are for Obama, he buries us in debt, trillion dollar deficits for his term, and at best the unemployment rate is 7.8 percent, if that number is really true, and the democrats actually act as if this is good news.

frankly if we had a real president who actually cared about jobs instead of ramming through obamacare, then the unemployment rate would be 5 percent or less.

fortunately our current choice is clear.

Romney, the American success story, who made himself rich while creating thousands of jobs, who has raised 5 sons, cared for his wife through multiple sclerosis and cancer, went to Harvard law and business school at the same time, and who has been successful at everything he has done right down to his governorship of the liberal state of Massachusetts, where he showed that he can work with both sides of the aisle,

vs. Obama, the pothead and drug user, who has lied and scammed his way into office, and basically failed in every part of being president, he is such a failure that he dares not run on his record, but instead is running one of the dirtiest campaigns in history, counting on smear tactics rather then telling the truth about his negative accomplishments as president.

this choice is crystal clear, and hopefully we will wake up the morning after election day and realize that the long night is over, and it is morning again in America.

Now Obama is being called out by the same economist that he quoted as the basis for his statements in the debate about taxes, as "misrepresenting his paper",

"But that's not true. Princeton professor Harvey Rosen tells THE WEEKLY STANDARD in an email that the Obama campaign is misrepresenting his paper on Romney's tax plan:"

I just hope that Romney and Ryan don't let up now that they won this debate,

they need to prepare just as hard for the next debates including the debate with Biden,

it would be very easy to underestimate Biden, but they can not afford to underestimate him, nor can they afford to sit on a lead,

this election is just too close at this point to not use every opportunity to display the differences between the failed Obama Biden policies that have buried the middle class over the past 4 years and which promise a trillion dollar tax increase,

and the Romney/Ryan plan of bringing prosperity back to our country and creating jobs to end this economic downturn once and for all.

obama calling romney a liar is a joke, obama is the biggest liar of any president in our history, which makes his claims as comical as someone who thinks that the corrupt mainstream media is fair.
