Nate sez Mittmentum has ground to a halt, as rMoney fails to make further advances after the Denver Debate Debacle:
Mr. Romney clearly gained ground in the polls in the week or two after the Denver debate, putting himself in a much stronger overall position in the race. However, it seems that he is no longer doing so.If Obama hadn't choked in Denver, Mitt would have been abandoned as a candidate shortly thereafter. Obama's debate performance was a gift to an idiot, but the campaign quickly recovered, stopped Mitt's rise, and will win in November.
Take Wednesday’s national tracking polls, for instance. (There are now eight of them published each day.) Mr. Romney gained ground in just one of the polls, an online poll conducted for Reuters by the polling organization Ipsos. He lost ground in five others, with President Obama improving his standing instead in those surveys. On average, Mr. Obama gained about one point between the eight polls.
