A new post-debate debacle PPP poll is out in Virginia. It shows Obama up by 3, 50-47%, down from 51-46% in the middle of September.
Mitt’s favorables have increased 10% since their last poll, from -2% to +8%.
PPP says, “Much of the improvement in Romney’s image is people going from hating Romney and voting for Obama to respecting Romney but still voting for Obama.”
I don’t care if the respect increases as long as the votes don’t. Respect doesn’t count in the electoral college.
But now the burden is clearly on Obama to perform well for the rest of the campaign. He can’t afford another false move.
