While the twitter-verse was ablaze with the news that Romney seized the lead in Gallupís tracker of likely voters, the underlying data hinted at troubling news for Romney. After making big gains among registered voters following the debates, Gallupís most recent days of tracking
have shown a shift back in the presidentís direction, with Obama returning to pre-debate levels.
Similarly, Gallupís 3-day approval tracker found the president reaching 53 percent, suggesting that the president fared pretty well in interviews on Saturday, as well.
Ultimately, this is just two nights of tracking, but itís consistent with the movement in Rasmussenís tracker, Obamaís strong performance in Colorado and Iowa in Rasmussenís Sunday polls, and PPPís tweets about the evolution of their samples. If confirmed by other pollsters, thereís a chance that Romneyís impressive bounce might prove short-lived.
