Seems Huffington Post agrees.
MENTOR, Ohio -- Republicans aren't the only ones who think that Hurricane Sandy has helped President Barack Obama politically.
"I hate to say it, but with that storm I think the atmosphere went up," said Holly Brindley, a 57-year-old volunteer for the Obama campaign.
Numerous voters said they felt the president's response to the storm helped him push back what had been a slow, steady move by Republican nominee Mitt Romney to pick up ground in the polls.
"The storm took a lot of political coverage out of the news, and I think maybe that stopped the momentum," she one voter, Roxanne Hustek.
Roxanne was right.

Though Republicans believe the storm damaged Romney’s momentum, Sandy’s political impact may have had more to do with Obama’s rapid response to the storm, which 77 percent of Americans praised. Moreover, Romney’s alleged momentum was already slowing; his favorability ratings began gradually declining after his first debate against the president. In Sandy’s aftermath, Romney was widely criticized for an insensitive “storm relief” rally in Ohio, where his campaign staff staged donations and took photos of the candidate posing with canned goods.
Stop making excuses, it sounds pathetic. He was already losing. Face it Carol, Romney sucked.
