With the country focused on Hurricane Sandy, the election has hit the backburner a bit today. We do have a few new state polls though, and also finally have two new non-tracker national polls. The numbers are below, followed by my analysis.

Obama scored one of his best swing state polling days in weeks today, probably his best since prior to the first debate. We continue to see signs of a post-debate Obama bounce, particularly in today's state polls. The numbers are below, followed by my analysis.

We have new swing state polls in today, a few of which were taken after this week's debates.

We have a few new swing state polls today. It should be noted that all of these were done prior to last night's debate. Obama is widely being viewed as the winner of last night's debate, and as I said in my debate review last night, I suspect he'll get a bounce in the polls from getting wavering left-leaning Independents and women back in the fold.

With the second debate tonight, I figured it'd be a good time to compare how big Romney's bounce has been since the first Presidential debate. The end result is a 3.7% national bounce. In swing states, his biggest bounces were in New Hampshire (+5.5%), Wisconsin (+5.3%), and Florida (+4.5%). His smallest bounces were in Iowa (+1.2%), Virginia (+2.7%), and Ohio (+3.3%). I'll use the benchmarks set today to once again compare the numbers to what they are on October 22nd, the date of the third debate.

The specific numbers are below.
