2. Very good news...

As I've written below, data from Friday (Gallup and Rasmussen) and Thursday-Friday (Ipsos) polling had suggested a 12-point-or-more Romney gain; if this had continued into Friday-Saturday, we should have seen Romney ahead by a point or so in today's release. Instead, it would appear that today's numbers reverted back to where they were shortly before the debate. It's only one data-point in one poll, but it's the first suggestion that the "Romney surge" might turn out to be merely a one- or two-day phenomenon, rather than a lasting trend. Polls in the next few days will tell more of the story.
