clearvision Posted October 9, 2012 Share Posted October 9, 2012 FOX News: The left’s worst nightmare is becoming a reality, and historic post-debate polling numbers reflect those fears. New reports indicate the Rocky Mountain presidential debate moved invaluable mountains for the Romney for President campaign. His debate performance demonstrated what no number of ads and no amount of money had been able to buy – that he’s a likable leader. The latest Gallup tracking poll shows Romney scored a decisive 52-point debate win (72% - 20%) over President Obama. The former Massachusetts governor also pulled ahead of President Obama 49% - 45% in the latest Pew Research Center’s presidential poll. I must admit to having an unexpected bout of pre-debate doubts heading into Denver. Attending a number of focus groups and interactive polls recently, I heard from voters across the spectrum - men, women, undecided, independent, liberal, and conservative. Most notable were the views of the all-important independent voters in the battleground states. Many saw Gov. Romney as a competent businessman, but they viewed the CEO title as a negative, one that gave him an “out-of-touch” air. Despite Romney’s record of success, at the time, many said they didn’t plan to vote for him simply because they didn’t like him. Yet, after 18 months of campaigning across the country and countless hours of paid and earned media, it took just 90 minutes of facts and fortitude on the debate stage in Denver for the former Massachusetts governor to change that perception.
