Obama up 1 in national tracking

Source: Public Policy Polling

Barack Obama moved slightly ahead in the rolling three day average of PPP's national tracking tonight, 49-48. He was down 49-47 in Monday night's release but has gained a net 3 points as interviews from Tuesday and Wednesday have replaced those conducted on Saturday and Sunday.

The key for Obama is that he's reduced Romney's lead with independents in the wake of his debate win on Monday night. He trailed by 9 points with them earlier in the week but has now cut that deficit to 2 at 47-45. Because of the party identification advantage Democrats enjoy nationally, Romney probably needs to win independents by a wider margin than that if he's going to be elected.

There have been small shifts in Obama and Romney's favorability numbers in the wake of the debate. Obama's favorability has improved a net 3 points from 47/49 to 49/48. His job approval numbers, although still in the red, have seen similar shift from 45/51 to 47/50. Meanwhile Romney's reviews have gone in the other direction from 50/45 to 49/47.

Obama's up big with women (54/42), African Americans (91/6), Hispanics (58/37), and voters under 30 (58/38). Romney's strength is with men (56/42), whites (58/39), and seniors (55/43).

4. what about the seniors?

I am not surprised with the other figures. but i don't understand seniors. maybe someone can explain that one to me. do they think that R & R don't really mean what they are saying? Just really confused about that one. As an approaching senior, R & R scare the hell out of me.
