Poll: Obama Getting Smooshed Like a Bug
in 'Battleground' Florida, 51-44%

'...the types of shifts you see in Florida when 
something starts to break one way or another'

In yet another traditional presidential 'battleground' state, Mitt Romney has completely turned the race on it's ear: after trailing by a point or two for some time, he now leads his hapless neo-Bolshevik opponent by seven in the Sunshine State, a number beyond the MOE:

The debate prompted 5 % of previously undecided voters and 2 % percent of Obama backers to move to Romney. Another 2 % of Obama supporters said they are now undecided because of the debate.

"There's no question in my mind that debate made people stand up and pay attention, and it really wiped away any questions people had about Romney, whether they were undecided or soft for Obama," said Brad Coker of Mason-Dixon Polling and Research...

"It's a very big shift since the debate, and where the shifts are taking place are very, very interesting: they are the types of shifts you see in Florida when something starts to break one way or another," said Coker, likening it to when Ronald Reagan shot past Jimmy Carter in 1980...

Obama's once 11 point lead among likely independent voters had cascaded into a 13 point lead (Ed: = 24 pt. shift!) for Romney this week, 52 percent to 39 percent.

The bottom line? Obama appears to be in serious trouble in America's biggest battleground state. He has two debates and 25 days to turn it around, but the poll points to a race that had been close and stable for months shifting significantly toward the Republican nominee...

must... save... revolution... for... Uncle... Frank

But being cut to ribbons in the first debate was just the start of Obumbles current woes: after nobody bought the dubious unemployment numbers he squeezed out of the BLS, a major donor scandal emerged, and Hillary chucked him under the Benghazi bus, some -i.e. Gallup- still said it would be 'difficult' for Romney to maintain his newfound momentum... yet polling numbers say something else, particularly in key 'battleground' states.

If you take a look at the latest RCP map, Obama retains precious little support outside of New York, Illinois, New England, and the Left Coast- even Maoist California shifted 8-points towards Mitt this week:

Just the sort of dire situation that could prompt a Dear Leader to put tanks in the street, doncha know- at least Hugo Chavez kept it close enough to steal...
