4. It's the media narrative now

Notice how all evening news led with the 'Romney is ahead' and 'Debate was game changer' themes, showing the Pew poll as evidence. We all know that, while the Pew poll may well be accurate, it was taken during the three days following the debate, where the post Romney-Gasm glow was still in full bloom. We also know that the trackers Gallup, Ras, Rand, and Ipsos, are more representative of the current voter sentiment. But don't count on the MSM to accurately report on ALL polls.

The scary thing here is that the media narrative will drive the national mood. If Romney is being presented as the winner and comeback kid, the American people will believe it and thereby creating a self-fulfilling prophecy.

There is not a lot of time left to put a stop to Romney's MEDIA momentum, and there will be no help from said media whatsoever. This wound was in part self-inflicted. Obama needed to be stronger in the debate, and he blew it. No use in crying over spilled milk, however. There is no margin for error going forward. The upcoming debates must be flawless, and there absolutely cannot be any gaffes on our side.
