Real Clear Politics latest update shows Romney still holding, if not widening, his surge after the debates.
Romney’s chances look even better when you look at the independent surge in the latest Pew Research Poll and I’ve copied the data from that poll into a spreadsheet below.
Notice that in early October, Romney had a lead over Obama with regard to independent voters 46% to 42% but that gap widened at the end of October to 48% to 42%.
The petulant Obama isn’t playing well with independents and according to the recent Rasmussen poll in Ohio, Romney has a 2 point overall edge there (50% to 48%). To make matters worse for Team Obama, they now have to expend valuable resources (and money) in Blue states like Pennsylvania and Minnesota.

Way to go, Cosmo!! I liked this, obviously. Been so busy this past 10 days, been all I could do just to blog.
Flying back from Chicago tonight, so hopefully I’ll be back to normal then..
Thanks so much JTR for the sharing of my posts on your blog and twitter. Have a safe trip and I look forward to reading your posts when you get back. 5 more days to victory!
Same state, same polling organization, same polling methodology, 8 straight increases. Those increases, by the way, range from 1 to 4 points and an average of 2.4 points. In any one case you could explain the increase by random fluctuation. But 8 straight in 8 different states? What are the odds?
