    I tend not to watch a lot of over the air TV but when I do watch there is a very conspicuous absence of advertising by the Presidential candidates.  I've seen a few for Obama and far fewer for Romney.  We get advertising for local candidates and being in the Boston / Providence market that is almost exclusively ads for Massachusetts Senate.
    There really is no influence on public opinion outside of debate and speech coverage and thus I wouldn't be surprised if people wavered based solely on the news of the day.  
    I've long felt that Romney was a much more formidable foe than many of the DK community believed.  In my area the electoral votes are a given, there's no question that MA, RI and CT are for Obama even if Romney were to get a 5 or 10% bump it does him no good.  
    Just as an observation, nothing that Romney said in the debate should have been remotely attractive to Obama's base; that Obama would lose the unmarried white women vote strikes me as the biggest load of horseshit.  Romney would be particularly destructive to this group. The economy is very clearly improving.  There is more to this than meets the eye, that Romney should be gaining such significant support as a result of 1 debate defies logic.
