The Debate Had Effect

The debate between Obama and Romney that ended in a decisive Romney victory seems to have provided a significant boost for Romney. Before the debate, Obama had a solid lead of on average 3 to 4 percentage points in the polls. In a poll that was partly conducted after the debate, Obama however only leads with one percentage point, and in the poll made by Rasmussen tracking entirely after the debate, Romney leads by 2 percentage points.

Obama still has a good chance of winning, but Romney's odds have clearly improved dramatically as a result of the debatel.
