Movement For Romney In Three Key Swing States?
Polling from two separate pollsters shows Mitt Romney appearing to make gains in Ohio, Virginia, and Florida in the wake of Wednesday’s debate.
First up there’s We Ask America:
Next up there are a trio of polls from Rasmussen which show us the following:
All the usual caveats about Rasmussen apply, of course, but it’s noteworthy that these results are replicated for the most part in the WAA poll, which has been fairly reliable so far this year. Not surprisingly, these results bring major changes to the RCP Averages for all three states. Ohio, where Obama had previously had a lead over five points in the poll average, the President now has a +3.2 point lead. In Virginia, it’s down to +0.4. And in Florida it is tied. Looking over at the national polls, there’s no real evidence of movement in either of the national tracking polls right now, but that’s generally to be expected since we’ve only had one full polling night since the debate and those polls average their results over multiple days (3 days for Rasmussen and 7 days for Gallup). If there is movement there, though, we should begin to see it early next week.
