Obama fails to recapture ground in 2nd debate.
Focus Group guru and pollster Frank Luntz held his own focus group of undecided voters on the Sean Hannity show on Fox News, and most of them also said that Romney won them over. The segment was made humorous by a member of the group dropping the BS bomb on Hannity's show in describing Obama.
I knew Romney did well in the debate, when I read the next morning that in the CBS News Insta poll showed that Obama barely won the debate with Romney 37 to 30 respectively with 33 percent calling it a tie. What I found astonishing is that in the same CBS Insta Poll, it showed that Romney beat Obama on the issue of the economy by a blowout 65 to 34 percent . For Obama to eek out a seven point victory in a CBS poll no less is pathetic considering that Candy Crowley had Obama's back throughout the debate. This is also if you believe that the 33% who claim it was a draw truly believe what they said. Famed Democratic strategist James Carville coined a popular term that describes modern day politics. He said basically, when it comes down to winning elections, it comes down to one thing. "It's the economy stupid". Obama has done everything possible to stay clear of talking about his failed four years. On the other hand, Romney has made it his one mission to bring up Obama's failed record at every turn. He did it again in the second debate. These debates as I said before are geared towards the undecided voters, and most of the undecided voters tend to vote according to how they see the economy as doing and what they believe it's going to do in the near future. Since the first debate and now with the second debate, the momentum is clearly with Romney. Speaking of momentum, for the first time, Mitt Romney is ahead in the Real Clear Politics electoral college map.
Obama himself wasn't even breaking his arm off patting himself on the back the day after the second debate. At a campaign stop in Iowa, Obama said that "he's still trying to get the hang of these debates. With the last debate coming up on Tuesday night with the topic being on foreign policy, I predict Romney will go on the attack relentlessly against Obama on the Al Qeada backed terrorist attack in Libya on 911 and highlight many other examples of Obama's failed foreign policy. If Obama doesn't have the debate of political life. He's more then likely going to lose in 19 days. Since Obama has a dismal foreign policy record, I don't see how the outcome is going to be favorable to him.
