First Post-Debate Poll Shows 5 Point Swing in Favor of Romney

The National Journal reports that on Tuesday, the Washington, D.C.-based Clarus Research Group surveyed 590 likely voters and found Obama leading Mitt Romney, 49 percent to 45 percent. On Thursday, Clarus found, in an identical number of interviews, that Romney had inched ahead by 1 point, 47 percent to 46 percent.

Obama's support slipped by 3 points and Romney's ticked up by 2 points. All this action, though, is in the 4 point margin of error for the poll.


  1. Those numbers don't interests me. It's the number of people that are going to vote.

  2. A big question would be whether or not they included Gary Johnson in their poll ... in a tight election 5% for Johnson in a swing state would be seen as really significant.

  3. Obama will win, this horse race nonsense is part of the farce.

  4. 7.8%. Manufactured done deal for O.

    1. Yep, the government just keeps getting more ballsy. I mean, they're not even TRYING to conceal the fact that this whole "election process" is rigged anymore...
