In the tracking polls Romney is somewhere between +3 and +5 in Gallup and +6 in Rasmussen for today's portion of the full results (Gallup that is 1/7 of the total number and 1/3 of the Rasmussen number). By Monday we'll see the full effect of the debate with Rasmussen and it will take until Thursday to see how it sticks with Gallup.
If this holds you're looking at a transformative event at the debate and a repudiation of Obama's name-calling and distortions.
Is this the end of the Obamaphone crowd picking our direction? Time will tell.
