  •  alternate theory from Rasmussen (6+ / 0-)

    is that the race never really moved from where it was mid-September, but Romney's awful month meant he took a huge hit in some LV models. This is partially reflected in the fact that there really hasn't been too much movement in national RV polls.

    Ras (rightfully) gets a lot of criticism for trying to push pro-GOP narratives, but interestingly, he's one of the few pollsters saying a Romney surge has been illusory.

    Of course, he may very well be trying to boost his credibility, but then again, he's got some evidence to support it now.

    With that said, Obama obviously didn't help himself with the debate. An energized GOP base means more money, volunteers and word-of-mouth exposure for Romney. In that regard, things are certainly harder than they should have been.
