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.
