Governor Mitt Romney's impressive performance last week's first presidential debate will go down in history as -- most decisive victory in history and Americans must agree because according to a brand new Gallup poll by a record breaking 52 point margin.
72% of voters think -- -- -- a much better job than president Barack Obama.
Now the anointed one stumbling and fumbling in Denver is costing him in the polls as well nationally and in battleground states.
Now let's begin with the latest Gallup survey as you can see the governor is now tied with the president among registered voters.
That's a five point swing in Romney's favor in the days immediately following the debate and by the way to seven day rolling average.
And three more days after the debate have yet to be counted.
And according to the newly released Pew Research Center poll Romney leads among likely voters get this 49 to 45%.
And according to the brand new George Washington University political poll.
Voter enthusiasm they shifted dramatically in Romney's favor and on top of that the poll shows that Romney is leading among independent voters by -- staggering.
16% now remember.
According to Fox News polls -- exit polls in 2008 Obama won the independent.
Of hope by 8%.
So -- -- -- -- 24 point -- with only 29 days before the election.
All of this has sent the Obama campaign into full crisis and panic mode.
The president his surrogates are now sinking lower than they ever have before all in an effort to stop the Romney surge -- -- just desperate.
Have a strategy is very clear -- that is to try and -- governor Romney is somebody that the American people should fear.
You -- Chicago style politics are now being played out on -- national stage but there's at the end of the day well that's their only option.
And this is what happens when you are desperate candidate who has failed his constituents for nearly four -- you're forced to call your opponent a liar pants on fire.
Plenty of people reported out.
What a liar Mitt Romney is and was last night I mean if he was talking.
He was if -- speaking last night he was lying.
That -- saying get governor Romney did a lot -- it was just on like yeah I think he was dishonest absolutely many people are saying now that what they saw was did.
Governor Romney that they have known all along and the what's been the problem in the past is they haven't seen that person and he finally emerged during the debate.
He's saying he lied through his teeth and the -- Republican primaries when he said he was gonna cut taxes for wealthy people.
We recall that he is the Etch A Sketch back has transformed himself and quite frankly we always have to wonder which Mitt.
Is gonna show up and so if you just -- out.
I have to live to -- about your own plan as well as what the president has been talking about of course you can look good.
We expected that an aggressive debater to show up last night on the debate stage with Barack Obama.
We can expect an aggressively dishonest debater to show up.
Out perfect strategy liar liar liar pants on fire fire.
As funny I didn't hear anybody mention anything about the president's record or accomplishments.
-- -- -- perhaps because there aren't any instead what he's given us.
Million Americans on food stamps you know fix that Mr.
President seventeen million more than when you took office.
23 million Americans on and underemployed.
Six trillion dollars in new Obama -- and you have four years to fix the worst economy since the great depression and it's no longer George W Bush's fault.
And I have to look at the latest polls and appears the truth is beginning to catch up with Barack Obama he -- reaction the author of the New York Times and latest book.
It's called -- best seller and Coulter and Fox News contributor the one and only pac -- by the way.
You know we'll just -- The author of the study at Princeton right point it is -- for those who don't he points out that.
Obama purposefully took his his interpretation of Romney's economic plan -- a contact which was.
That means I did not want to conclusion why that's the Princeton.
Economists supports what Romney says I'm going to cut.
Which is that a million times in the debate I think Americans understand and understand his own truth no matter how much they talk about -- And cut rates across the board by 20% and eliminate the -- and deductions and exemptions as everybody knows is a scam and it is mostly taken advantage of by the very wealthy.
He can keep the rates for the very rich.
The same and I mean I think the most of this lie lie -- business this is exactly how the left reacted to.
The one issue that was the single most important issue I think in any presidential campaign we can point to a single issue 1988 the Willie Horton ad.
Liberals first reaction was to say it's a -- its -- -- why it wasn't a lot.
And then they -- cried racism and you're getting the same thing with this lie lie lie and now Harper's magazine has said when Romney referred to kids five boys saying the same thing over and over again are -- -- believe -- racist that was racist because it was subtly.
Romney calling -- bomb off -- like this.
Why -- -- I thought I feel like I'm looking at the limit limit yourself.
Desperate -- they seem like they are.
Freaky out what they believe was desperate when we are let's understand something is every day comes in in the polls get worse we go from dishonest.
All the way up to have we started with -- -- then dishonest and now why.
And god knows who will be by -- by the end of this week.
But you know the point is that.
Let me just say this this is the biggest debate victory probably since nineteen is the single in terms of a single debate in it would in terms of the -- but more importantly.
What it did from Romney was.
The number of people -- gave them chances seem a problem with the -- strategy and everything it's of people seventy million people watching ninety minutes depth.
If the Romney campaign were not so pathetic -- in five days able to put up ads.
Promoting their debate victory as opposed to what they do good but the fact is that it was big but let's not -- let's understand one thing.
It help probably a lot we went from 30%.
Almost doubling to 53%.
Among uncommitted voters to -- cared about people his -- -- have been waiting for more.
Polls we finally -- -- a lot of the news organizations -- 100000 dollars to their negative -- told -- we could two weeks ago are a little slow on this.
But the thing that I find it to the election is not over Obama still has Obama stopped and defeated.
Here's an approval rating over 50% at 50% which poll you look and act as a breast mentioned today this is important Robinson and then one -- there are other ones got.
But his approval rating is still near 50% -- I kissed up he's not defeated.
And the second thing is consumer confidence is right in light of those highly suspect job numbers Friday which we could spend a whole show want.
Which he showed unemployment going in this is the -- this campaign by no means over.
I think is over and the reason I don't get over of course I thought it was over last week and the week before the week before Romney's going to win and the reason he's going to win part of the evidence he has.
This was the most watched debate since 1980 when Ronald Reagan ran against -- and it was only one debate that year.
We know what -- -- -- that year that was the first time in the last hundred years Republicans took out incumbent the one at this debate at in terms of viewership.
-- -- -- Was one in in 1990 when Clinton ran against bush again when an incumbent was was was being taken out the reason so many people tuned in is because they know.
Obama's taking the country in the wrong direction they know they're unemployed and I don't care what number the Obama administration gets flashed up on -- TV screen and they know there are out of work and they just wanted to see if they're comfortable.
The challenger and they're not only were they comfortable there and keeping comfortable Bogut and logical view of the reason Romney is going to keep.
Doing very well in the debates is because you never get to see him the media.
Tells us you know gives us snippets -- paraphrase they do bed and MSNBC thing in other words what -- was trying to say was.
-- what he said but let let me just point this well Hugh.
That if you want to look at polls work -- 29 days out four weeks of the campaign we all agree is an eternity.
But she you battleground Politico.
If Gallup -- Rasmussen.
But -- -- goes deeper than that because now Romney's up in Florida in a poll is up in Virginia in a poll.
He's been an even on Ohio and and but also it's a two point race in Pennsylvania.
Well it's a two point equipment it's a one point race in Wisconsin.
-- this now is putting Obama in a position where yes to defend defend defend defend defend and at least you know six at bats they should we won back in 2008.
Okay some this is all being carried over Mitt Romney's performance I'm telling you lose a campaign we are still.
Way behind the -- But look into about those polls the battleground whole ball to those conducted before the debate OnStar with -- I thought -- numbers for -- we before we may have been cool though Obama way ahead so I just write them -- destroy.
But they do seem to show.
-- on attributes look debates are about not about moving numbers this move as many numbers -- -- I've seen.
In vote and look what it moves you -- internal structure of the race it made the challenger acceptable.
Let me -- -- that yes -- -- -- independence.
Hat I mean there was an eight point advantage.
For Obama in 2008.
Sixteen point it is your right if -- -- sixteen point advantage if he has -- advocates over -- go -- when he was sick at thirteen for -- purports whatever the enthusiasm is double digits as well right.
And and it used saying you don't really trust -- they have all right just I think they're -- before I just want this day later please note that they're never skewed to benefit that Republicans is a business and what they're saying.
Romney thought I could definitely got to take a break we'll come back and by the way Joseph Biden sequestered for instance that oddly put -- at hiding what we -- up.
